Joseon is plagued by disorder due to political uprisings and a power struggle surrounding the ruthless King Lee Hun (Yeo Jin Goo). To avoid assassination, a clown named Ha Sun (Yeo Jin Goo), who looks exactly like the king, is brought to the palace to be his double. As Ha Sun sits on the throne and fools the kingdom, he begins to fall for the beautiful Queen Yoo So Woon (Lee Se Young). “The Crowned Clown” is an adaptation of the movie “Gwanghae: The Man Who Became King” (also known as “Masquerade”), starring Lee Byung Hun and Han Hyo Joo.
