THE KING AND THE CLOWN (2005)

Drama, LGBTQ 1h 59m

At the height of the 16th-century Chosun Dynasty, a pair of rural male actors l—boisterous Jang-seng and quiet Gong-gil — travel to Seoul and team up with a struggling acting troupe. When their irreverent show — complete with bawdy humour and gender-bending — mocks the famously hedonistic king, they get more than they bargained for. After being promptly arrested, they’re given a chance to spare themselves if they can make the king laugh.
