[Annals of the Joseon Dynasty _ Yeonsan-gun's Diary _ Yeonsan 11, June 16]

The movie <The Barrier> shed new light on Lim Soong-jae, a rare tyrant who took control of Yeonsan-gun, the worst tyrant in Joseon, and Chae-hong, a case in which 10,000 beauties from the eight provinces of Joseon were forcibly conscripted. In the 11th year of Yeonsangun, the main subject of the movie, 'Chaehong' is an incident where Im Soongjae and his father Im Sahong were appointed as Chae Hongsa in the 11th year of Yeonsangun and ordered to search for beauties from all over the Joseon Dynasty and bring them to the palace. Im Soong-jae, who was appointed as Chae Hong-sa, forcibly conscripted about 10,000 beautiful women from all over the Joseon Dynasty. Also, those selected by the king because of their excellent results were called 'heungcheong'.
At that time, 'Chae Hong' is an event that shows the absurdity of power possessed by Yeonsan-gun in the most intense way in that uncountable beauties were requisitioned to the palace regardless of class, such as women of the four-generation family, women, and the poor. In addition, the king's preference for the chaehong beauties soon led to power, and for this reason, the power struggles of the servants were intervened in the process of choosing chaehong. As such, <The Ganshin> contains the history of 'Chaehong', one of the most shocking events in history, and the rookies who used it to covet the king's power.
In addition, <Banksin> exposes the harsh training process that 10,000 beauties offered to the king by Chae Hongsa go through in order to be chosen by the king. The 10,000 unpyeongs who entered the palace by Chae Hongsa learned not only the songs and dances to please the king, but also the techniques to serve the king in bed. Unpyeong, who were favored by tyrants, survived the palace, and lusted for power, risked their lives for training. Reflecting this historical true story, <The Ganshin> is expected to capture the eyes and ears of the audience with a beautiful video of 10,000 beauties devoting themselves to training in order to become the best color of Joseon.

The movie <Banksin> is the story of people who have existed in history, including Lim Soong-jae, the worst loyalist who captivated Yeonsan-gun with 10,000 beautiful women and despised the times, and the scoundrels who shook the world, and 10,000 beautiful women who wanted to become the best color of Joseon. is opening a new horizon for historical drama films.


Im Sa-hong and Lim Soong-jae, the worst criminals in history recorded in the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty
The history of their absolute power that even the tyrants ruled is revealed!

The small villain is Sungjae, and the large villain is Sahong. You are the greatest heinous in the heavens.
[Annals of King Jungjong]

In the movie, Lim Sa-hong and Im Soong-jae are real people who have been recorded in history as 'the greatest and greatest heinous crime since a thousand years'. Lim Sa-hong is said to have enjoyed power following the fourth generation from King Sejo to Yeonsan-gun, as he led the sudden death by instigating the Yeonsan-gun under the pretext of the concubine Yun, the mother of Yeonsan-gun. His son Lim Soong-jae is also recorded as one of the rarest servants comparable to his father's fame. Lim Soong-jae, who was highly trusted by Yeonsan-gun, was said to have been favored by his cunning and cunning nature, expelling loyalists and taking concubines from others and offering them to the king. When Chae Hong-sa was granted full power and traveled around the country, all the people fled from him, and it is said that when he rode a chariot, it was like a royal procession. In this way, Lim Sa-hong and Lim Soong-jae, who gained the greatest trust and power as the closest aides of Yeonsan-gun, are being talked about as the worst servants in the history of Joseon.
The movie <Sniff>, which deals with the story of a rare young woman who ruled over the king using 10,000 beautiful women, is expected to provide a different kind of fun with a story from a different perspective from other works that dealt with Yeonsan-gun that I have seen so far.

10,000 beauties painted in the eight provinces of Joseon
Realistically the training process to become the best color in Joseon!

In 1505, Yeonsan-gun dispatched Chae Hongsa and forcibly requisitioned the beauties of the eight provinces.
It is said that the number exceeded 10,000, and the resentment caused by it pierced the sky.
[Annals of the Joseon Dynasty]

A large mouth that can hold large objects at once, white and fine teeth, dark silky hair, thin ankles like saplings,
The best is a woman with silky skin, warm body temperature, ample flesh, and thin bones.
From the movie <Short Shin>

The movie <Banksin> shows the harsh training process that 10,000 beautiful women who were sacrificed to the king by Im Soong-jae, Hongsa Chae, go through to be chosen by the king. The women who entered the palace by Chae Hongsa were called Unpyeong, and were classified as gisaengs managed by the state and received some kind of training. These unpyeongs learned not only the songs and dances to please the king, but also the techniques to keep the king in bed. In this process, Unpyeong, who were chosen by the king, were named as a higher class called Heungcheong, and wealth and power came to the women who became Heungcheong. On the other hand, Unpyeong, who did not catch the eyes of the king, were immediately mistreated, or became government servants or nuns. For this reason, Unpyeong, who had to be in the eyes of the king in order to survive, risked their lives for training.

Reflecting this historical true story, <Ganshin> aims to make Unpyeong the best color of the Joseon Dynasty, from the appearance of the female and the bad girl, such as a large mouth, thin ankles, and high body temperature, to the scene of educating various positions, and training to strengthen the danjeon. The harsh training process I had to go through was realistically captured. The realistically depicted beauties in the movie are expected to leave a strong impression on the audience by completing a beautiful video.

The scene of the award banquet in <Banksin> boasts the most splendid yet majestic scene among historical dramas.

In contrast to this, Dan-hee (Lim Ji-yeon)'s costume is a monotonous and intense black and white pattern, and it leaves a sharper impression in harmony with the choreography of the sword dance.
The costumes in <Basic> were made based on thorough historical research in the early and mid-Joseon period, but the costumes in the water banquet scene were designed with a reinterpretation of the circumstances of the time to add realism.
