Foreign trailer for A Frozen Flower, which screened at the 2009 Hawaii International Film Festival.
Set in Korea during the Yuan Dynasty, the King of Goryeo (Joo Jin Mo) has a penchant for young male bodyguards, and lives a blissful 'don't ask, don't tell' existence, sharing his bed with handsome Chief Guard Hong Lim (Jo In Sung), a loyal lover the King raised from childhood. Their idyllic life comes to an end when the King, unwilling to consummate with his Queen (Song Ji Hyo), is pressured to produce an heir or consign the throne to his cousin. Choosing duty over love, the King orders Hong Lim to impregnate the Queen. An initially awkward and repugnant act of loyalty leads to a passionate (and sensuously filmed) affair between the Queen and Hong Lim. Honor becomes betrayal, as the King/Queen/Servant love triangle is juxtaposed against the backdrop of the country's political turmoil.
