Gunsan, Korea - Tacoma Sister Cities International Film & Food Festival
March 5, 2009 (Thursday):
Doors open at 5:45 with Korean food served. This is followed by cultural entertainment and the showing of The King and the Clown at 7:00.
During the reign of infamous King Yeon-San, two performing clowns produced a satirical play criticizing the countrys ruler. While this makes them highly popular amongst the common people, it gets them into a world of trouble with the authorities. The two are shortly arrested and accused of treason, a crime that carries the death penalty. The clowns then make a deal with the King if they can make him laugh with their play acting, he will spare them.
