    I'm still learning english ! I know it sucks ! please bear with me ;-)

    Hey guys, a friend of mine recommended the korean movie Concubine of King and I thought i give it a shot. The movie contains a lot of sex scenes and what you get to see is comparable to any softporn. So I wasn’t sure if this movie is really good. Usually movies which contain erotic of this level are low budget productions and I thought this is another one. I was mistaken (again). The movie is high-class and is anything but trashy which amazed me. But there is one thing which confuses me I thought established actresses with a good carrier wouldn’t play such a role.

    A movie about human greed, punishment, desire and betrayal. Taking place inside the Korean palace halls this movie is beautifully portrayed. The acting was brilliant. The King's obsession and desperate actions and rash decisions along with conspiracies taking place throughout within the walls kept me on the edge.

    The massive bloodshed and torture made me feel like I was back in the historical times. The Queen Hwa Yeon was a complete surprise package till the very end.

    Though I would have preferred for the beginning of the movie to show the past of the three main characters with slightly more depth. I thought that portion was rushed and left me quite confused.

    This is a wonderful movie to watch but be warned it has ADULT CONTENT
