Character

 

Jang-saeng The protagonist of the film. As a clown / street entertainer, he belongs to the underclass in olden Korean society. He is macho, free-spirited, headstrong and outspoken as well as a leader to his troupe and highly talented in his crafts. A man determined to be the master of his own fate, he is self-confident and shows much disrespect for authority. Yet, there is an undeniable gentleness and devotion when it comes to dealing with his younger performing partner, Gong-gil.
   
Yeonsan-gun Considered a tyrant in the records of Korean history. It is said that his madness was created by his hunger for motherly care and anger for the unfortunate death of his mother when he was very young. A very complex character with multiple personalities - he is violent, yet weak; he laughs heartily, but is lonely; he is king, yet envies the free spirits of his new royal clowns.
   
Gong-gil He is the younger deliciously effeminate lad who plays the woman to Jang-saeng's man in the comic skits they performed. While Gong-gil possesses great confidence and voluptuousness in his skills as an entertainer, he is very shy, quite and passive in person. Strongly dictated by his surroundings, he accepts fate and understands the needs to do what he has to for survival, yet he possesses a child-like delicate and innocence that is not corrupted by his environment or his sufferings. Jang-saeng is very protective of him, like a father, older brother, good friend and may be more. In return, Gong-gil is very dependence on Jang-saeng.
Jang Nok-su Jang Nok-su is a gisaeng-turned-royal concubine with a strong ambition for power. She was the king's favorite concubine before being neglected by Yeosan-gun after he takes a liking to Gong-gil. A woman with a strong and yet multi-layered personality, she remains committed and stands by her king to the end.
