Still image from the film The Royal Tailor
Director Won-suk Lee brings the period costume drama to dramatic and sensational heights with this intricate drama of two tailors tussling for power in court via actors in apparel that protagonists would literally kill and die for. The film is bookended by contemporary scenes exhibiting the handiwork of Chul Dol-suk, a tailor who made a great impact on Korean fashion design, and from there it steps back in time to the Joseon dynasty. Shown in conjunction with the East Asian Study Center’s annual Korea Night. In Korean with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
