“The Crowned Clown” Production Crew Reveals Intriguing Secrets About Filming

“The Crowned Clown” Production Crew Reveals Intriguing Secrets About Filming

Feb 2, 2019
by L. Kim

Some of you may have wanted to know, “How can Yeo Jin Goo appear on the screen as the clown and king at the same time? Where was the locations of the drama?”

Well, the production crew of “The Crowned Clown” decided to share some of the most mysterious questions about filming.

First off, many viewers are curious about how the scenes of clown Ha Seon and King Lee Heon were filmed simultaneously. When Yeo Jin Goo acts as Lee Heon in his royal robes, his stand-in actor takes the place of Ha Seon and only his back is filmed. Then when Yeo Jin Goo has to act as Ha Seon, he and his stand-in actor exchange clothes, and the same process is repeated.

Also, when Ha Seon and Lee Heon need to be captured on one screen, computer graphics are used to superimpose their pictures separately, and Yeo Jin Goo performs using his imagination without any other actors in the scene. The production crew commented, “The scene in which Ha Seon and Lee Heon appear at the same time takes twice as long as the other scenes and takes a lot of effort. It is a very difficult performance for the actor, both physically and in mind control. We are very surprised of and grateful for Yeo Jin Goo’s perfect immersion of his role.”

The drama is also known for its beautiful and rich views. Prior to the broadcast, Yeo Jin Goo had admired, “Whenever I arrive at the film set, the view is amazing.” After the drama started to air, viewers are amazed at the picturesque nature of the scene and inquiring about the location through the viewer bulletin board.

In the first episode where Ha Seon is heading to Hanyang, the scene was filmed at Hwangmae Mountain in Hapcheon. The wide, splendid view opened up the hearts of viewers and refreshed their bodies. The ending of episode four was filmed at Gasan Rock in Palgongsan Mountain in Chilgok. The part where Lee Gyu (Kim Sang Kyung) told Ha Seon “from now on, you are the true king” was filmed at Palgong Mountain.

Above all, the ending scene of the eighth episode when Lee Gyu poisoned Lee Heon and shocked him was held at Gijipo Beach in Anmyeon Island. The bleak sandy beaches and the lonesome breaking waves have fueled the viewer’s bitter aftershocks, amplifying the feelings of Lee Heun and Lee Gyu.

The production crew stated, “We are working hard to find the right places for the drama. There will be many more scenes with beautiful scenery, so please look forward to it.”

The drawing of the chief eunuch (Jang Gwang) that was gifted by Lee Heon before he left in episode four became a hot topic. It had actually been drawn by Yeo Jin Goo himself. The production crew revealed, “On this day, a ‘chief eunuch drawing contest’ was held at the site. Among them, Yeo Jin Goo’s drawing was chosen as the top prize and appeared on the air.”

Episode nine will air on February 4 at 9:30 p.m. KST. However, on February 5, episodes one through nine will be be aired consecutively starting at 7:30 a.m. KST, and a special episode will broadcast at 9:30 p.m. KST.

@rittoo : as he already said with HS ' if you want to be King, it means : enter in

the politic field, you forget yourself. When you want takingsomething, you must

lose something ! it's the price....very high price to do politique /

I always hate the politique, it's a.....salade composée....

I don't like Gwanghae, Sado neither.... I  see in korean history,

almost kings of air joseon were not good but these two are the worst !!!

When I see the drama talk about Gwanghae, I didn't want seeing.

Thanks to the music background Serenade that I came here.

But I saw many comments are hidden by someone in spoilers

so why I think it's my last comt in this thread !

Sayonara everyone...Bye

It might be, but we don't know. The assumption that he would have been murdered anyway does not absolve minister Lee of his sins of having murdered his king whom he had sworn eternal allegiance to. I get why he did what he did, it might even have been the best option, but it doesn't make what he did good.

Nope, minister Lee still carried out the murder, he will forever be guilty of that even though he wasn't the only responsible party.

 

OMG I just realized when reading your comment: didn't minister Lee promise to bring LH back to the guard who was already heart broken? I can see the break up of allegiances already... How is he ever supposed to get over this?

@Jillia

@rittoo

I'm unsure about that because Moo Young was crying when Lee Kyu told him he will bring the king but I'm sure when he doesn't he will know. I hope we get a resolution of that scene in the next episode. :)

True. This is why I'm scared to watch the rest of the drama. I may binge watch the remaining episodes one time so I don't have to torture myself every week lol. Now the question is, can I?:rolleyes:

 

I can't imagine what she will feel like if she knows the truth. That's why I wanted her to find out the truth first and make her decision but now, it's too late:bawling:. She will feel betrayed, humiliated, anger and then guilt. Even if she finds out LH wanted her dead, that won't change a thing. Arghh why writer? WHY?:confounded:

 

As for HS, I think he will keep his distance from her when he finds out the real king is dead and that's the price he had to pay to sit in the throne. He won't be able to look her in the eyes:tears:. How I wish this episode was the finale.......

I agree with your comment and what @nidcha202

said. I feel sorry for the queen. While the two of them are really cute together she is still under the impression that it's her husband who has become a good person again as he was in the past and I think that made her very happy. Can she be deceived forever? I don't think so. And will she just brush it off that another person came near her pretending to be her husband and her real husband has been murdered? I shudder to think of her shock and sadness when she finds out. She won't be able to forgive them or herself unless there is a miracle. I also don't know how HS will deal with it, he will have problems with the fact that minister Lee murdered the real king anyway, and he will have no means to justify himself in front of the Queen, he will feel like it's his own fault because he's such a good person. I think he'll still try to get through to her but it's hers to forgive and asking for forgiveness does not always mean being forgiven. Oh my...

Finally have time to catch up till the latest episode! My gosh this drama series is making me crazy! It can’t utter words that can describe how interesting and intense this drama is! First of all I know that we all hate the real king not because of him but what becomes of him, but in my opinion no one has the right to die just because he become evil, everyone deserves second chance, but of course other will not agree because he was a murdeder as well and he almost kill our queen! In my alternate universe, I think of him in a far away place having peace and healing his wounds and preparering a great comeback that we will get confuse whom to choose, but sadly he is not there anymore. Huhuhu.... let us just move on and see what will happen how will the villains (now that they will form alliance) will try to take the kingdom to our HS, but they will never know that our fake king.... now the new king is also a great performer because of his background will play tricks on their minds and is ready as well to protect what is given for him that we can see how much effort he already poured just to make a good nation, and his motivation is there, his queen, family and the people. I’m really curious what will transpire when the queen will know that truth, I know she will feel betrayed but she knows that she fell in love not with her really husband but with a common man that has high integrity and big heart. I feel like he is the only king that will be loyal to his queen, he is deeply in love her already( I really wanted him to get rid of all the concubines) I don’t know why I don’t want him to have ladies around him! I feel jelous for the queen! Hehehe! Bless our eunuch he will be like the real family of HS in the place. 

One thing as well that bothers me is his family especially DH claiming that he was prison my the monk although it partly correct because he is really in house arrest because of his living condition in the place. I’m leaving looking forward for more episode! Go! Go! Go!

Personally I think they need to finally resolve the whole issue with So Woon and Ha Seon because she must feel like she is stuck in twilight zone with the King changing personalities within hours. Let's hope the writer does have a good idea for this plot. :D

I hope that the script writers will add more HS roles about HS's personal history. Even though his true birthday doesn't know what day he was born? Maybe it might be an unexpected event as well. Maybe I confused that HS. Who is he? I think he has some clues about his history.:D

 

I like to watch. The younger brother is teasing his sister. Haha !!!! they are so cute!!:heart:

 

He tried to prevent her from going.:blush:

He thinks she is a wrestling match.:bawling:

Up to now, I am still concerned about the safety of his sister and uncle. They may be caught and are an important bargain. His sister has a knife of LH. In her possession, it is the most questionable issue. That was the problem:sweatingbullets: that followed for HS and his sister. It was a weakness for him. He loves his sister so much that he is willing to do everything in order to need power and revenge for his sister. He must choose between the throne and the family, which is not easy for him to be as a king. He had to lose one thing and get something. For his survival as a king or being a common man while the secretary LKY had murdered LH For his survival as well As he said to HS I think it is an inevitable problem as well. If he chooses one thing And lose one thing:tears:

(This is my guess and the situation that may arise):)

The latest image feels like an image that reveals the image of the clown of the true face of the HS or what the image of the arrest warrant is? In ep. 9:(

 

I think secretary LKY is a smart person who can solve the situation well.:D
