the name of the whale

the royal tailor

Junior high student Yuta is assigned the task of excavating fossils as a summer school project. The contentment this assignment brings him is abruptly shattered when pieces of his everyday life begin to fall apart, and Yuta must soon find the balance between his old and new worlds.

Sartorial rivals Dol-suk (Han Suk-kyu), a master craftsman devoted to tradition, and Kong-jin (Ko Soo), an avant-garde upstart with rakish charm, cross shears for the position of the king’s tailor. High fashion and political intrigue weave together this sumptuous court drama, replete with scenes of rustling hanbok and sensuous embroidery.
