Daniel Joey Albright,
Joseon is in a state of disorder due to uprisings and a power struggle surrounding King Yi Heon. To avoid assassination, a clown named Ha Sun is brought to the palace to take the place of King Yi Heon. Ha Sun looks almost identical to King Lee Hun. When Ha Sun was a child, his parents died during an epidemic. Ha Sun almost died from starvation around that time, but he was saved by a group of clowns. Ha Sun grew up with the clowns and became one of them. During their performance, Ha Sun would play King Yi Heon due to their similar physical appearance. Now, Ha Sun is nervous that someone in the palace will find out he is not the real king. He falls for beautiful Queen Yoo So Woon. ~~The drama adaptation of "Masquerade", is a story that takes inspiration from "The Prince and the Pauper" by Mark Twain.

The Crowned Clown surpasses the movie masquerade in every level. The story was presented more in depth and the characters were complex and interesting. I especially liked that the twists were simple and not that many. Thus, the story's flow was smooth and it concentrated more on the main story of the clown. The highlight of this drama, however, was the leading actor's performance. The duality of the characters he presented was so distinguish and yet he managed to performe each character beautifully. Another plus of this drama was the romance that was sweet and simple. However, the drama did got boring towards the ending. In addition, the twist in the very end was kind of unnecessary and cliche.
