Yeo Jin Gu and Lee Se Young in Top Sageuk Form in Posters and Promos for tvN Mon-Tues Drama The Crowned Clown


I’m still working through my final take on the K-drama adaptation of movie The Beauty Inside from a few weeks ago and now another movie-to-drama adaptation is headed our way. tvN will premiere The Crowned Clown in the first week of January 2019, an adaptation of the critically acclaimed and box office hit 2012 movie The Masquerade with Lee Byung Hun. The age is turned down for the drama version with Yeo Jin Gu as the male lead, both the paranoid King and his doppleganger clown brought in as his body double. Lee Se Young plays the Queen who is resigned to her fate until she starts falling for the pretend King. I’m loving all the poster and teaser promos so far with a great flair for the visually dramatic. The drama is from the PD of Money Flower and takes over for Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter in the Mon-Tues time slot.
