YesAsia Editorial Description

Four years after The Throne, screenwriter Jo Cheol Hyeon collaborates with Song Kang Ho (Parasite) again in his directorial debut The King's Letters! Song Kang Ho stars as King Sejong in the period drama, which also includes his Memories of Murder co-stars Jeon Mi Sun and Park Hae Il, and Herstory's Kim Joon Han. The King's Letters marks the late Jeon Mi Sun's final work, which posthumously brought her the Best Supporting Actress award at the 6th Korean Film Producers Association Awards.

In the early Joseon dynasty, Koreans used Chinese characters to record their words, and literacy was a privilege of the upper class. Despite the opposition of his retainers, King Sejong (Song Kang Ho) is determined to create a Korean alphabet that could be learned by all his people. He and Monk Shinmi (Park Hae Il) struggle to write Hunminjeongeum to introduce Korea's written language, Hangul.

国のために、民衆のために― 独自の文字創製のため命を懸けた世宗王の情熱と葛藤を描く史劇エンターテイメント! 民衆のための文字創製へ。朝鮮王朝史上屈指の名君とされる世宗大王と卑賤な僧侶が朝鮮固有の新たな文字を生みだそうとした奮闘の日々を鮮やかに描く。ソン・ガンホ×パク・ヘイル豪華競演! ――朝鮮固有の新たな文字「ハングル」に命をかけた世宗王、最後の8年間。朝鮮第4代国王・世宗の時代。これまで朝鮮には自国語を書き表す文字が存在しておらず、上流階級層だけが特権として中国の漢字を学び使用していた。この状況をもどかしく思う世宗 (ソン・ガンホ) は、庶民でも容易に学べて書くことができる朝鮮独自の文字を作ることを決意。そこで、低い身分ながら何カ国もの言語に詳しい和尚シンミ (パク・ヘイル) とその弟子たちを呼び寄せ、協力を仰いだ。王を取り巻く臣下たちは、国の最高位である王様が最下層の僧侶と手を取り合い、庶民に文字を与えようとしている前代未聞の事態に激しく反発。逆境と葛藤のなか、世宗大王とシンミは民へ贈る新たな文字作りに突き進んでいく──!! ※註: ハングル創製に関しては諸説あります。
