The Concubine Review

Living a torturous life of poverty and barely able to survive, Hwa-yeon decides to offer herself as one of the king’s concubines. Once inside the royal palace, two men are immediately seized by the woman - the Grand Prince Seong-won, a megalomaniacal ruler drunk with power and lust, and Kwon-yoo, who has everything to lose if his desire for Hwa-yeon is exposed.

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 in it. ### watch 18+ korean movie The Concubine on xemovie.com
