The third highest grossing movie in South Korean film history is a sumptuous period piece starring Asian superstar Lee Byung-hun (The Good, the Bad, the Weird). Evoking Kagemusha and Dave, the movie tells of an unpopular 17th-century king who hires a comic-actor commoner to impersonate him wherever there might be an assassination attempt.
