Two clowns living in Korea's Chosun Dynasty get arrested for staging a play that satirizes the king. They are dragged to the palace and threatened with execution but are given a chance to save their lives if they can make the king laugh.
16-year-old Jang Ji-Gu (Seo Young-Joo) takes care of his ill grandfather, while he hangs out with other troubled kids. He was abandoned by his parents at an early age. After another run in with the law, Jang Ji-Gu is sent to a detention center. One day, Jang Ji-Gu hears that his mother Hyo-Seung (Lee Jung-Hyun) has come for him at the detention center. Hyo-Seung had Jang Ji-Gu at the age of 17 and gave him up soon after birth. Can they repair their relationship?Written by
When I see a lot of positive review and award for this movie I decided to watch this movie. Yeah, after a long time I don't see any good movie from Korea since All About My Wife,Suspect X and Werewolf Boy I finally got what I want! To watch the movie that can give us satisfaction and anything, give us something to think and what to practices in our life.
This movie is about our teen's problem nowadays, such as petty crime, pregnancy and responsibility to themselves and their family. I actually fell in love to Jung Hyun character, she is so sweet and adorable. She played her character as a young mother very well and that's what make this movie good. I'm really really love this movie because its story is so moving and heartwarming. It told our social problem in metaphor's way thats make it so great. Highly recommended for those who want alternative genre from Korea instead of their action thriller movie. Again highly recommended!
