Plot

Movie depicts a tragic love triangle story between Hwa-Yeon (Jo Yeo-Jeong), her true love Kwon-Yoo (Kim Min-Jun ) and the man who will be King (Kim Dong-Wook).

Prince Sungwon (Kim Dong-Wook) sees Hwa-Yeon (Jo Yeo-Jeong), the daughter of a wealthy nobleman, for the first time and falls in love, but Hwa-Yeon loves Kwon-Yoo (Kim Min-Jun). Kwon-Yoo saved her father's life and now lives with her family.

Meanwhile, Prince Sungwon's mother (Park Ji-Young) notices her son's infatuation with Hwa-Yeon, but she doesn't think Hwa-Yeon is good enough for her son. Prince Sungson's mother then schemes to have Hwa-Yeon become the concubine to her stepson the King (Jung Chan). Hwa-Yeon and her true love Kwon-Yoo run away when they learn of this plan, but are soon captured by her father's men. In order to save Kwon-Yoo's life, Hwa-Yeon agrees to become the King's Concubine.

Hwa-Yeon gives birth to a son a little bit less than a year later. She will then become a Queen. Several years later, the King becomes sick and dies suddenly. Prince Sungwon becomes the King, but his mother now wields true power. Hwa-Yeon then learns that the King's stepmother had the King killed to put Prince Sungwon on the throne. Hwa-Yeon also realizes that to survive in the royal palace and protect her own son, she will have to change.

King Sungwon is now agonized over his desires for his deceased brother's wife Hwa-Yeon and his mother's domineering ways. One day, Hwa-Yeon sees her true love Kwon-Yoo in the palace and he has now become an Eunuch.

PrincessNANA I liked this movie a lot, and I liked the ending. I mean, it was real, it showed people's true nature. And I don't think that she was just trying to keep herself and her son alive, if she didn't kill the king in the end whose to say he wouldn't have killed her after his lust for her subsided? I've got to say the only thing I didn't like was that her lover died, she should've just assured him that it was his son. Anyway I'll give this movie a 9 out of ten. Acting was good and concept.

todonadinegordimercomes Every weekend i used to visit this web page, for the reason that i want enjoyment, as this this web site conations really pleasant funny data too.

afsaneh i am so sorry for these korean movie.the concept of this movie was good but sex scenes were bad.this made movie,noo-concept movie.these scenes will destroy our young boys and young girls minds and at last it destroys the country.i love koreans movie but not these movies

Apple Its a great movie. But I don't like the ending of the story. The king helped them but still she killed His Majesty. Its just simply showing that Hwa yeon Is just like the King's mother. Over all thumbs up to all the cast.

kira their acting is so solid..theyr'e all so good in here. i had a headache after watching these .maybe because they're all so mean in this movie LOL.put the RPG aside and you'll really appreciate the story in this movie..JYJ is so pretty!!

www.nikon-af-lenses.co.uk I blog frequently and I genuinely thank you for your content. The article has truly peaked my interest. I'm going to take a note of your website and keep checking for new information about once per week. I subscribed to your RSS feed as well.

Ronaldo Even though there's a lot of body exposure as required in the story, it's considered good movie except for the end part when hwa-yeon still killed king sungwon who helped and in love with her ...it seems that she will become like the king's mother who is greedy in power.
