THE LAST PRINCESS (K-movie 2016)


“Princess Deokhye (Son Ye-Jin) was the last princess of Korea. Under Japanese colonial rule, she is taken to Japan as a hostage. With the era’s harsh conditions, she struggles to maintain the hope of the Korean people. Jang-Han (Park Hae-Il) is a fighter for Korean independence. His mission is to bring Princess Deokhye back to South Korea and he also loves her. “

This is based on the real-life of the last princess of the Joseon Dynasty of Korea. The events of her life might be more or less portrayed accurately in this movie, but I can’t help to like it from beginning to end. It’s quite emotional to see the pain of people who went through under Japan’s rule and colonization. It’s very hard to watch while keeping your eyes dry.

I praised the performances of all casts. The two leads superb acting to their characters drawn you to be engaged, entertained, and compelled by the story. I don’t mind for the few flaws as they are forgivable (like some scenery is not on period time). Even so, this historical movie is worth watching for.

Verdict: 10/10
