December 20, KOCOWA, starring Yoo Seung Ho (Memorist) and Lee Hye Ri (My Roommate is a Gumiho)
Set in the Joseon era during a period marked by the strictest prohibition laws illustrating that prohibition is no match for human desire.
Prohibition creates different challenges for these inhabitants: Inspector Nam Young from The Office of the Inspector-General who left his hometown to achieve fame in Hanyang and restore his family status; Kang Ro Seo, the aristocratic but impoverished woman who makes moonshine to reduce her debt from buying her mother’s medication and her brother’s books; Crown Prince Lee Pyo prone to scaling the palace walls in search of a tipple. This trio has a fateful encounter leading them to discover a hidden stash of alcohol. Revealing this secret could mean certain death.
