Lee Byung-hun ("The Good, the Bad, the Weird" and the upcoming "RED 2") takes on a dual role in Choo Chang-min's period court drama "Masquerade," which speculates on 15 days that went missing from the record of Prince Gwanghae's[masked] reign.
The film topped the Korean box office for five consecutive weeks starting with its Sept. 13 release and is currently the seventh-highest-grossing Korean film of all time.
Synopsis: Driven to paranoia by fears of an assassination attempt, a king (Lee) hires a commoner (also Lee) to stand in for him -- with unexpected results.

"A beautifully written, and finally emotionally involving, Joseon-dynasty drama which is one of the best South Korean costume dramas in years." -- Derek Elley, Film Business Asia
"A sweepingly entertaining, lavishly appointed spectacle ... the aristocratically handsome, versatile Lee Byung-hun really delivers the goods." -- David Noh, Film Journal International
Everyone who attends will be entered into a raffle drawing to win one of Lee's films on disc: "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" or "I Saw the Devil."
We'll meet and greet over eats afterward. Join us!
