In 2008, Korea paid double tribute to Shin Yun Bok, one of the country's greatest artists and the inspiration for both the Moon Geun Young-starring TV drama Painter of the Wind and Le Grand Chef director Jeon Yun Soo's provocative blockbuster Portrait of a Beauty. Based on Lee Jung Myung's best-selling novel, the sexually charged Portrait of a Beauty controversially reimagines renowned Joseon Dynasty painter Shin Yun Bok as a woman who lived her life disguised as a man. Kim Min Sun (Rainbow Eyes) delivers a stunning, sensual performance, playing her gender-bending role with erotic flair. Kim Nam Gil (No Regret, Public Enemy Returns) and Kim Young Ho (Night and Day) star as the two men who change her life.
Hailing from a long line of court painters, Yun Jung exhibits great artistic talent from a young age, but it is up to her brother, as the male, to carry on the family tradition. After her brother's death, however, the responsibility falls on the young girl's slender shoulders. Taking her brother's name, Shin Yun Jung becomes Shin Yun Bok. Disguised as a male, she comes of age at the royal painting institute where her bold depictions of sexuality and the female body both shock and enchant the artists of her time. Her art captures the heart of mentor and master painter Kim Hong Do (Kim Young Ho), but it is street ruffian Kang Moo (Kim Nam Gil) who awakens Yun Bok's eyes to the world and her own sexuality.
