As both a poet and a courtesan, HWANG Jin-yi was a woman ahead of her time who embraced her work and life with gusto, and become a role model for women in the 21st century. Her only love, however, was a man nobody ever knew. The man she chose was compelled to abandon his identity and cross class lines.

a deep appreciation for a deep introspection in human's heart
21 September 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

such a beautiful and touching movie! i was amazed how they presented an artist's heart, and an artist's calling. i enjoyed so much watching this movie and i appreciate the tenderness and deep understanding of artist's conditions, not only during that time, but in our times also. i am also a bit sad because not so many people understood the message of the movie. there is some criticism concerning some minor mistakes. anyhow, i would like to express my gratitude and to congratulate the team and the actors who played in this drama. there were no bad people. there were people who were hurt, there were people who sought for healing their souls. and the art, the pure and true art is able to do it. i believe in this message of the movie. thank you!
