King and the Clown (2005)

**½
South Korea

Up until Bong Joon-ho's The Host the following year, this historical melodrama was South Korea's highest-grossing film of all time as well as the country's official submission to the Academy's Best Foreign Film category. But you wouldn't believe it if you saw the movie, since a) it essentially revolves around a love triangle between three men; and b) it's a stodgy soap opera.

dir: Lee Jun-ik
cast: Kam Woo-seong, Jeong Jin-yeong, Lee Jun-gi, Kang Sung-yeon, Jang Hang-seon, Yu Hae-jin, Jeong Seok-yong, Lee Seung-hun
