The Crowned Clown[1] (Hangul왕이 된 남자; RRWangyi Doen Namja; lit. The Man Who Became King) is an upcoming South Korean television series scheduled to air in the first half of 2019 on tvN. It is a remake of the 2012 film Masquerade.[2][3]


The story takes place at a time in Joseon history, when upheaval and power struggles surrounding the throne had reached extreme levels. In order to escape those who plan to assassinate him, the king puts a clown, who looks exactly like him, on the throne.





The first script reading took place on October 8, 2018 in Sangamdong, Seoul, South Korea.[6]
