The Crowned Clown is a South Korean historical, melodrama series filled with romance. The show was initially released on the 7th of January all the way back in 2019. It ended on 4 March 2019. The show was broadcast episodically. While this show is not as popular as it has a rating of just around 7 in IMDb, it is still a pretty great show.
We found it interesting and we do recommend you to watch it. The fans of this show are already looking forward to the second season though. But given the track records of the Korean TV industry not updating their series for the second season, it might be highly unlikely that the show will be back for the second season.
Anyway, The Crowned Clown was originally developed for the tvN Korean network by a director named Kim Hee-won. The show was not as popular initially and it is also not acclaimed. But still, the show went solid on Netflix and it might have a second season coming because of that Netflix Fame!
The Crowned Clown Season 2 Release Date
The Crowned Clown Season 1 was first released on 7 January 2019 and lasted on 4 March 2019. The series was first broadcast with 16 episodes on tvN. Fans now want to know if the second season is dropping. So, what’s the deal? Is the second season coming? Let us find out!
It has been 2+ years since the first season finished airing. And we still don’t have the info on the second season. There is no official announcement at least. The show will probably not come for a second season as it was not that popular anyway. Even the 10/10 series don’t get a second-season treatment in Korea!
The Crowned Clown Season 1 Plot
As we mentioned, The Crowned is a historical drama and it also has some romantic comedy bits. It is a remake of a South Korean film named Masquerade. The story is centered around a king. The King in the Joseon Period of Korean history has a look like who is a Clown. The King desperately gives the throne to the clown. He does this to escape the evil powers that threatened the Royal Family. It’s a cool plot, right?
Anyway, at the end of the show, the clown actually becomes the King of that period. He does this to save the kingdom after the real king escapes the throne. This is a major twist and the political drama also has a love triangle between the Previous King, the current king, and the queen. All of these twists and multiple plot points make this show a worthwhile watch!
