Yoo Ah In’s “The Throne” (Sado) Releases Blu-ray DVD With More Bonus & Special Box Set
Having released the limited special DVD with some nice bonus last May, “The Throne” (Sado) returns in blu-ray with more bonus! The blu-ray DVD has higher definition (full HD) and sound quality than the normal DVD format. It is out for preorder now in Yesasia.
The Throne blu-ray DVD contains special features, which is almost similar with the limited version, only this one comes with more bonus, such as: scenario book, more postcards, extra deleted scenes and BTS. In addition to that, it comes with a rice wooden chest-like design for the DVD box set. Whoa, just like that of in the movie! (In the story Prince Sado was trapped by his own father inside the rice wooden chest). Definitely worth collection 😀
Known for critical hits like The King and the Clown and Hope, seasoned filmmaker Lee Joon Ik helms another box-office sensation in The Throne, which recounts the tragic life of Crown Prince Sado. Depicting one of the most notorious episodes of Joseon history, the period blockbuster garnered numerous prizes at the 35th Korean Association of Film Critics Awards, 52nd Daejong Film Awards and 36th Blue Dragon Film Awards. Yoo Ah In (Veteran) earned his first Best Actor prize at the Blue Dragon Film Awards, and also brought home more Best Actor prizes at the Korean Film Reporter Association Awards and Chunsa Film Art Awards, for his impressive portrayal of Crown Prince Sado.
Fond of arts, dancing and swordplay, Crown Prince Sado (Yoo Ah In) isn’t interested in studying Confucianism which is the base of the Joseon dynasty. King Yeongjo (Song Kang Ho), who was initially proud of Sado’s intelligence, grows increasingly disappointed in his son who thinks too differently from him. Hoping Sado will learn to be a king, Yeongjo appoints him as regent to administer the country, but Sado issues a set of anti-royalist decrees that anger the king. Amid the volatile order of the court, the relationship between father and son begins to derail, along with Sado’s mind, towards a shocking breaking point.
