A frozen flower(Korean movie 2008)
synopsis :Set near the end of the Goryeo era (AD 918 ~ 1392), Korea was politically manipulated by the Yuan Dynasty in China. The ambitious King of the Goryeo Dynasty organizes Kunryongwe, as his royal guards and escorts. HONG Lim, the commander of Kunryongwe, captivates the King of Goryeo, and the Queen keeps her eyes on the relationship between HONG Lim and the King with a reluctant view.
Meanwhile, the bilateral relations between Goryeo and the Yuan gets worse as Yuan demands to install the cousin of the King as the Crown Prince of Goryeo, attributing to the fact that there is no heir sired by the King. The high-ranking officials of Goryeo, who are in submission to Yuan, are hence discontented with the king.
One day, the King gives HONG Lim a covert yet objectionable order to sleep with the Queen in his place to protect the independence of Goryeo from the Yuan by making a son, the successor to Goryeo throne. And so begins a complex love triangle which enthralls and captivates. click here for more info
the link is the original source of the synopsis article,I just want to share it with the reader aside to my personal comment.
comment: i have plan to watch this one,although its a very controversial movie,since the director said its a love story between men(can u imagine?) i wonder would it be like the king and the clown played by lee jun ki ? or just another brokeback mountain type of story.i'll update the comment after i watch it.
after watching it,this movie is rather shallow,and too much sex scenes exposed between the queen and the king's lover.it reminded me of the untold scandal.so its far below king and clown's quality in the story.
