All these reviewers don't really understand Korean history except few here.
31 May 2007 | by xelnangaSee all my reviews

Wow. I can't believe some of these reviews. Of course if you watch a dubbed version of a Korean movie, the acting's going to look and sound cheesy as hell.

The movie features a lot of very interesting sides of history that has never been revealed before.

Yes as someone has mentioned before, Queen Min was brutally raped before death. Japan in entirety did the same to Korea for about 35 years. How can you say that Japan was not the villain? They took Korean women, destroyed businesses, families and forced the Koreans to work under their boots.

This movie I did see some typos, but those are minors. These are some of the top Korean actors and apparently for those who think this was horrible acting, you will never understand. It's like reading poems by Pushkin in English. If you don't know Russian, Pushkin's poetry will sound very bad to you. But only those who know and truly understand Russian can comprehend and understand its beauty. I can say the same thing here. If you understand Korean and Korean history throughly, then you will truly know what a masterpiece this movie is.

And to all those who think that this movie is a nationalistic-hungry movie, whose director is out there to just "praise" about Korea, you are wrong. Korea was exploited by the Japanese and at the moment in the world, they are trying to hide most of it.

Shinzo Abe, the current Japanese Minister Official refuses to acknowledge for comfort women and apologize for what has happened in Korea... This is unacceptable.
