The classic Korean folk tale of Chun Hyang has been adapted into lyrical epics of forbidden love by master directors Shin Sang Ok and Im Kwon Taek. The famous love story gets a wholly different twist in writer-turned-director Kim Dae Woo's second film The Servant starring Jo Yeo Jeong (Vampire Cop Ricky 2), Kim Joo Hyuk (My Wife Got Married), and Ryoo Seung Bum (No Mercy). The period blockbuster sees heroine Chun Hyang falling in love not with Myung Ryong, but Myung Ryong's servant! Like Kim Dae Woo's previous works Forbidden Quest and Untold Scandal, The Servant is an atypical, cleverly written period piece charged with lust and liaisons, but there's also a comedic bent to the romance of errors.
Despite their caste difference, nobleman Myung Ryong (Ryoo Seung Bum) falls in love with Chun Hyang (Jo Yeo Jeong) at first sight. He counts on his servant Bang Ja (Kim Joo Hyuk) to arrange meetings with Chun Hyang, but Bang Ja himself seduces the girl. Chun Hyang is not so innocent herself as she hopes to marry Myung Ryong for his social status, adding to the tangled romantic triangle.
