Nothing like giving us the info on a release at short notice, but we’ve just been tipped that Choo Chang-min’s Lavish historical Korean film, MASQUERADE, opens theatrically in the U.S tomorrow.
The film just opened on Sept. 13th in Korea and is #1 at the box office, with over 50% of all moviegoers attending the film. So if sumptuous eye candy historical epics are your bag, be aware it starts its run from Friday Sept. 21 at CGV Cinemas in L.A.
Synopsis: Amid national chaos and fear for his life, tyrannical King Gwanghae orders his trusted councilor Heo Kyun to find a royal body double. He hires Ha-seon, a peasant mimic who bears a perfect resemblance to the King. When King Gwanghae collapses from a mysterious poison, Ha-seon reluctantly becomes a King. He must follow his conscience to save his country from collapse, avoid assassination, and pull off the biggest masquerade in history.
