(임금님의 사건수첩)

Based on a comic strip by Heo Yoon-mi that ran in South Korea’s popular Wink magazine in 2012 and 2013, “The King’s Case Book” is director Moon Hyun-sung’s second feature, the film gained an impressive 1.3 domestic admissions in South Korea in its first two opening weeks.

Long ago, the Korean Joseon Dynasty was known for its political and social tug-of-wars, which gave rise to an abundance of intrigue, crimes and cover-ups. Not to be outsmarted, King Yejong (Lee Sun-kyun), makes a point to gather evidence related to these criminal activities and solve the cases, bringing those responsible to justice.

Meanwhile, a brilliant young man, Yi-seo (Ahn Jae-hong), is appointed as Yejong’s chronicler, enabling him to keep meticulous records of everything the King does. King Yejong immediately realizes that Yi-seo is the perfect aid for solving crimes. The bumbling Yi-seo has a near-photographic memory and is lightning fast at recalling details and recording complex info. What’s more, his arrival at King Yejong’s side couldn’t have come at a better time.
