There are a lot of period films coming our way once again in 2015 but this is without a doubt the one with the highest profile. Lee Joon-ik broke records with The King and the Clown in 2005 and it's Song Kang-ho's first film since 2013, when his three films (including period drama The Face Reader) almost brought in 30 million viewers. It's also based on a dark but fascinating story that no doubt many local viewers will be aware of.
