London Korean Film Night: Concubine (2012)


Living a torturous life of povery and barely able to survive, Hwa-yeon (CHO) decides to offer herself as one of the king’s concubines. Once inside the royal palace, two men are immediately seized by the woman — the Grand Prince Seong-won (KIM Dong-wook), a galomaniacal ruler drunk with power and lust, and Kwon-yoo (KIM Min-jun), who has everything to lose if his desire for Hwa-yeon is exposed. As political intrigue begins to infiltrate this love triangle, the palace is revealed as hell-like space of passion and obsession from which any of these characters will be lucky to emerge from still alive.
