Known for critical hits like The King and the Clown and Hope, seasoned filmmaker Lee Joon Ik helms another box-office sensation in The Throne, which recounts the tragic life of Crown Prince Sado. Depicting one of the most notorious episodes of Joseon history, the period blockbuster garnered numerous prizes at the 35th Korean Association of Film Critics Awards, 52nd Daejong Film Awards and 36th Blue Dragon Film Awards. Yoo Ah In (Veteran) earned his first Best Actor prize at the Blue Dragon Film Awards for his impressive portrayal of Crown Prince Sado, while Song Kang Ho (The Attorney) was nominated for his towering performance as King Yeongjo who condemned his son to death. The Throne also co-stars Moon Geun Young (The Village: Achiara's Secret), Kim Hae Suk (The Thieves) who won Best Supporting Actress at the Daejong Awards, and Jeon Hye Jin who won Best Supporting Actress at the Blue Dragon Film Awards.
Fond of arts, dancing and swordplay, Crown Prince Sado (Yoo Ah In) isn't interested in studying Confucianism which is the base of the Joseon dynasty. King Yeongjo (Song Kang Ho), who was initially proud of Sado's intelligence, grows increasingly disappointed in his son who thinks too differently from him. Hoping Sado will learn to be a king, Yeongjo appoints him as regent to administer the country, but Sado issues a set of anti-royalist decrees that anger the king. Amid the volatile order of the court, the relationship between father and son begins to derail, along with Sado's mind, towards a shocking breaking point.
This edition comes with a scenario book, a postcard set, commentaries, making-of featurettes, deleted scenes, premiere footage and still gallery.
