YesAsia Editorial Description

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 commentaries, making-of featurettes, deleted scenes, music video, premiere footage and still gallery.

“잘하자. 자식이 잘 해야 애비가 산다!”
재위기간 내내 왕위계승 정통성 논란에 시달린 영조는
학문과 예법에 있어 완벽한 왕이 되기 위해 끊임없는 노력을 기울인다.
뒤늦게 얻은 귀한 아들 세자만은 모두에게 인정받는 왕이 되길 바랐지만
기대와 달리 어긋나는 세자에게 실망하게 된다.

“언제부터 나를 세자로 생각하고, 또 자식으로 생각했소!”
어린 시절 남다른 총명함으로 아버지 영조의 기쁨이 된 아들
아버지와 달리 예술과 무예에 뛰어나고 자유분방한 기질을 지닌 사도는
영조의 바람대로 완벽한 세자가 되고 싶었지만
자신의 진심을 몰라주고 다그치기만 하는 아버지를 점점 원망하게 된다.

왕과 세자로 만나 아버지와 아들의 연을 잇지 못한 운명,
역사상 가장 비극적인 가족사가 시작된다.

모두가 알고 있는 역사적 사건이지만 그 누구도 제대로 알지 못한 ‘사도세자’와 영조의 가족사에 집중하여, 어떤 순간에도 왕이어야 했던 아버지 ‘영조’와 단 한 순간만이라도 아들이고 싶었던 세자 ‘사도’의 이야기를 조선역사에 기록된 가장 비극적 가족사로 풀어낸 <왕의 남자>, <황산벌>의 이준익 감독. 국민 배우라고 불리는 송강호와 <베테랑>이후 제대로 물 만난 제일 잘 나가는 배우 유아인이 영화 <사도>를 통해 역사상 가장 비극적인 가족사를 재조명 한다. 블루레이로 출시되는 최고의 역사 실화 드라마 <사도>는 총 55분 분량의 특별 영상에 삭제 장면과 메이킹 영상 등이 수록되어 있다.

영화 <사도> 블루레이에서 공개되는 메이킹 영상들은 영화 속 캐릭터들, 감독의 인터뷰 등을 수록하여 특별한 보너스 영상들로 구성됐다. 특히, 삭제 장면의 경우 약 11분 분량의 편집에서 제외된 여러 장면들이 수록되어 특별함을 더한다. 특히 감독과 배우들이 함께한 코멘터리는 꼭 들어볼 가치가 있다.

<사도> 블루레이는 실화를 다룬 역사 드라마 장르 최고의 작품으로 1080p Full HD 고화질과 5.1 DTS-HD Master 오디오로 마치, 실제 역사의 한 장면을 바로 옆에서 지켜보는 듯한 생생하고 소름 끼치는 재현을 완벽하게 안방 극장으로 전달한다.

작년 출시된 <사도> 한정판 블루레이의 완판 이후, <사도>를 고화질 블루레이로 소장하지 못해 아쉬웠던 영화 팬들에게 이번 <사도> 일반판 블루레이 출시는 무척 반가운 희소식이 될 것이다.

Professional Review of "The Throne (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Korea Version)"

July 28, 2016

This professional review refers to The Throne (Blu-ray) (Scenario Book + Postcard) (Korea Version)
Although he has ventured into more contemporary territory with the likes of Hope and Radio Star, Korean director Lee Joon-ik is chiefly known for his historical dramas, having made his mark with his sophomore outing, the multiple-award winning box office hit The King and the Clown back in 2005. His latest offering The Throne recounts a dark episode from the Joseon period, charting the conflict between King Yeongjo and his son Prince Sado, with a top pair of talents in the lead roles in the form of Song Kang-ho (The Attorney) and Yoo Ah-in (Veteran). As well as a commercial smash, the film was another major critical success for Lee, winning a long list of awards and nominations at the Korean Association of Film Critics' Awards, the Daejong Film Awards and the Blue Dragon Film Awards amongst others.

Set in 1762 in the Joseon period, the film initially finds King Yeongjo (Song Kang-ho) immensely proud of his son, the 27-year-old Prince Sado (Yoo Ah-in), praising him for his intelligence and skills as a statesman. Unfortunately, their relationship slowly but surely sours, the King growing upset with Sado's lack of commitment to the strict Confucian ideals and rules which underpin the country's governance, the prince being more interested in martial arts, poetry and painting. The King's increasingly harsh treatment of Sado only worsens matters, pushing him to rebel, and he locks up his son in a rice box without food or water as punishment.

As a period drama, The Throne certainly has a fascinating premise and historical backdrop, the sad tale of Prince Sado having been much debated over the years as to the nature of his character. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the humanistic nature of his body of work, the film sees Lee Joon-ik offering a sympathetic take on the story and his players, painting a tragic picture of a father and son whose lives and actions are deeply constrained by the society and time in which they live. Lee makes the most of this, and with the King's mental health deteriorating throughout, there's a real tension to their interactions, and an ominous sense of impending doom as things escalate, making the film dramatic and gripping. With lots of complex politics and conspiracies also thrown into the mix, there's a great deal going on, and Lee again shows his skill as a storyteller, successfully nailing an effective balance between narrative and character depth.

The film is boosted by some superb acting, both Song Kang-ho and Yoo Ah-in on top form in the all-important lead roles. Well-deserving of the many accolades and nominations the two won for their performances, including Yoo claiming his first Best Actor gong at the Blue Dragon Film Awards, the actors are entirely believable as father and son, giving the film a powerful emotional punch as it descends into misery. Crucially, Lee finds fault and redeeming features in each of them, and the scenes between the two are dramatic and moving, their actions towards each other being fraught and loaded with meaning. Though the film is dominated by Song and Yoo, the supporting cast are similarly excellent, veteran Kim Hae-suk (The Thieves) having won Best Supporting Actress at the Daejong Awards, and Jeon Hye-jin (Chronicle of a Blood Merchant) having won Best Supporting Actress at the Blue Dragon Film Awards for their sterling work.

Where the film does fall down somewhat, is in its structure, the story playing out to a large extent through flashbacks as the King and the prince reflect upon the various stages in their relationship, from his childhood through to the present day. While this does work to help get to the bottom of the reasons behind its shocking decline, these do become a bit repetitive, and in places feel inserted only for the tugging of heartstrings – predictably, the film does take a dive into melodrama during its overlong final act, something which may lose some viewers. The flashbacks and their regularity also give the film a rather rigid and dry structure, giving it the air of a theatrical play at times, and while this perhaps reflects the society which imprisons the characters, it also makes the two-hour running time drag, not least since the ending is never in any doubt, even for audiences not aware of the historical facts.

To be fair, this doesn't detract too much from the film's overall effectiveness, though it does prevent The Throne from being truly great. Still, bolstered by some handsome production values as well as its powerhouse lead performances, the film is another fine period drama from Lee Joon-ik, who by now has surely earned recognition as the best Korean director working in the form.
