King Jeongjo: “Thinking of peach blossom makes me sad”
The sad story of three generations: King Yeongjo, Crown Prince Sado, and King Jeongjo
King Youngjo who longed for the principles of civilian government, Crown Prince Sado who was killed by his father, King Jeongjo who was Sado’s son at the center of the tragedy, and Crown Princess Hong who had to witness the tragedy of the three generations—the story of Joseon’s royal family wherein none of them were allowed any rest is shown as a musical drama.
Time Travel to the Day: King Jeongjo is a story from the birth of King Jeongjo to the sixtieth birthday of Crown Princess Hong, beginning with a young girl of the present who travels back to the time through the peach blossom in Changgyeonggung. The drama consists of fresh components that cannot be missed, including the beautiful palace displayed with the girl’s steps and new music that can only be heard here.
Performed in fall of last year, “Thinking of peach blossom makes me sad” was reconstructed as a contactless performance. The story is developed from various angles of King Yeongjo, Sado, King Jeongjo, and Crown Princess Hong, whose emotions are maximized to degrees previously unimaginable, a delicate structure that is different from the contact version of the performance. The acting and singing of the skilled actors and actresses (Song Yong-tae as King Yeongjo, Choi Jae-rim as Sado, Jeon Su-mi as Crown Princess Hong, and Lim Jaehyun as King Jeongjo) flawlessly depict the unforgettable story set in beautiful Changgyeonggung.？
In your home, you can watch the sad story of Joseon’s royal family, shown in the palace where it really happened, as if you are seated in a theater.
