Directed by Han Jae Rim (Rules of Dating), the blockbuster period drama The Face Reader chronicles the life of a man whose skills in physiognomy are so great that he earns the attention of the king. Song Kang Ho (Snowpiercer) stars as the eponymous face reader who can predict the character and fates of those he comes across. The acclaimed actor is supported by an all-star cast that includes Lee Jung Jae (The Thieves), Kim Hye Su (Tazza: The High Rollers). Baek Yoon Shik (Tazza: The High Rollers) and rising stars Lee Jong Suk (No Breathing) and Jo Jung Suk (Architecture 101). Besides winning big at the box office with over nine million admissions, the The Face Reader has also won many awards including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor at the 50th Daejong Film Awards.

Despite being the greatest face reader of the Joseon dynasty, Nae Kyung (Song Kang Ho) chooses to live in quiet seclusion with his son Jin Hyeong (Lee Jong Suk) and right-hand man Paeng Heon (Jo Jung Suk) because of their disgraced family background. It is gisaeng Yeon Hong (Kim Hye Su) who finds Nae Kyung and brings him to the capital for a business partnership. Word of Nae Kyung's amazing skills spread quickly and soon he's brought to the palace to assess and investigate civil servants and officials. Even the king enlists Nae Kyung's services to identify potential traitors, pulling him into a court conspiracy involving Prince Suyang (Lee Jung Jae) who is plotting to usurp the throne.
