It broke box office records galore in Korea last year and won more awards than you can shake a little golden statue at, and now Choo Chang-Min’s lavish historical drama Masquerade is debuting on DVD from CJ Entertainment America...on June 11.
Synopsis: Amid national chaos and fear for his life, tyrannical King Gwanghae orders his trusted counselor to find a royal body double. He recruits a crude, working-class peasant, Ha-seon, a village performer who bears a startling resemblance to the ruler. When the king falls into a coma from poisoning, he is secreted away to recover and Ha-seon reluctantly assumes the throne, forced to pull off history’s biggest masquerade. Narrowly evading exposure or yet another assassination attempt by his power-hungry court, he stumbles through his daily rituals and onerous royal duties … covertly coached by the king’s stoic chief advisor and chief eunuch. Soon, however, Ha-seon finds he must follow his own heart – no matter what the price – to save his country from collapse and its oppressed people from despair.
Masquerade is presented in widescreen 16x9 (aspect ratio: 2.35:1) and 5.1 Dolby Digital sound with English dub and subtitles. Special features include: “Lighting and Cinematography” and “Production Design” featurettes, deleted scenes and trailers.
