Teaser and Character Stills for Movie “I Am the King”

*Happy dance* Joo Ji Hoon is going to grace the South Korean big screens again! Joo Ji Hoon showed audiences he had comedic potential in movie Antique Bakery (2008), and with his new movie, I Am the King, he will be flexing those muscles once again.

I Am the King re-imagines the story of King Sejong, the much respected Joseon ruler who developed the Korean alphabet. If other movies or dramas (à la Tree With Deep Roots) have portrayed King Sejong as a dignified and intelligent individual, I Am the King turns that image upside down and imagines Sejong as a cowardly prince who was scared to be a ruler. In an attempt to escape the palace, Sejong climbs over the palace wall and unexpectedly crashes into a slave trying to sneak into the palace to save his owner’s daughter whom he has secretly loved. Surprisingly, the slave and prince look exactly like each other. They switch places for each other’s benefit- the slave becomes the king and the king becomes the slave. What hilarity will this mixed up situation bring?

Photo Spam: Ji Hyun Woo in “Mr. Idol” (Warning: Lots of pics. Lots.)




This movie requires no brain power whatsoever. It is basically a patchwork of different scenes just thrown together. There is no character development and the plot is so cliche, a five-year-old could have written it. Basically someone in the movie industry wanted to cash in on the idol trend so he hired some slipshot writer, coerced veteran actors to star in it, threw in some eye candy, and hoped for the best. You can’t even be angry at this movie because it’s just so surface level. The only redeeming point about this movie is of course, Ji Hyun Woo, and the sprinkling of comedy. I actually enjoyed the comedy. Ji Hyun Woo had some good deadpan delivery and there was some physical humor. I don’t think any of the actors took this project too seriously, which is good, but they did their job with what they were given. I don’t think I can blame them for this bad movie.
