In truth, her sad and tragic life was shaped at the highest levels of the Japanese Imperial family and its government, and carried out by their Korean collaborators - a path that led to Japanese political ends at the expense of her personal happiness.

21 January 2017 | by bishwajitnepaliSee all my reviews

This is about history of Korea. The whole movie depicts the Gyeongbokgung palace events and more struggle of the Princess. This is one of the most watch movie of 2016. It does not matter where you are from the dynasty existed and the actors have beautifully presented the character.Thank you so much to the crew of "THE LAST PRINCESS". This is so beautiful.God bless you all team. This is one of the genre that I like and you all will love this so much.I have been so influential with this movie.The act and the directorial is so perfect.The story of the movie is also very good. If you have watched Hackshaw Ridge by Mel Gibson and this one. You will find this movie so much better. It carries your tears at the end and move you away.I hope this team will come up with again another movie that makes people of Korea remember what is there in Korea that still exists to last forever.
