Talk about a great comeback, Ji Hoon, what a wonderful job! Not only in drama but also this movie! His portrayal of not only the Crown Prince but also Deuk Chil, the slave was phenomenal! There were some seriously funny moments like when he first switched to the slave and both were experiencing what it's like to just go to the bathroom! The look on Deuk Chil's face when the official wiper read more came in, comedy gold! When the Crown Prince had his experience (guess they never wipe their own butts), all I can say is eew! We cannot forget when they were running away from the slave camp or should I say Hae Gu eas doing the running, you have to see it, you'll definitely laugh! Not only was it funny, but it also showed us e growing period for both characters as we saw a reluctant King realize what he needed to do for his country and a slave, willing to do anything for the woman he loved. So well worth the time! I highly recommend this!

First of all, I'm so happy to see Joo Ji Hoon back in showbiz.
This movie made me laugh so much. So many hilarious scenes!
The story was decent and acting was nice as well. Cast was awesome in my opinion. I really loved both of the roles that Joo Ji Hoon played in this movie. He did justice to both the King role as well as the begger. Some of his read more acting was so cute and serious at the same time! Totally loved it. Honey Lee is a beautiful addition in this movie though she didn't have that many scenes in this movie. Kim Soo Ro is good in this as well though he didn't have that many scenes either but a good supporting role.

This story is about a Crown Prince who doesn't want to be the King. Therefore through certain circumstances he and a begger who looks like him switch places.

I really recommend this movie if you are looking forward to watching something light. The comedy in this movie won't disappoint you.

    I loved this movie. It has very funny moments but it's very touching too. JJH is wonderful here. It’s worth watching it.

    Haha, this movie was funny :P I laughed out loud several times - Joo Ji Hoon did a splendid job of portraying 2 different characters - a proper and prim prince who doesn't want to be king and a dirt poor slave who knows nothing but the woman he loves. They both grow in this film and have their eyes "opened" - I loved how they showed him start caring for his people's well being, and introducing characters such as Jang Yeong Shil - and the beginning thoughts of Hangul ^^ and those bathroom scenes were priceless XD and their fights to try and escape their "mixed up roles" was comedy in itself - the poor dudes XD - Giving it an 8.
