"The Last Princess" is both a drama and an action film that is based upon the life of Princess Deok-hye (1912-1989) who was born into Korea's last royal family in 1912 as the youngest and only daughter of the last King of Jo-seon, ex-Emperor Gojong and his concubine Yang Gui-in. 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. Two years before her birth, the Japanese Imperial Army surrounded Gwang-bok-gong Palace with artillery batteries with orders to shoot while Japanese officials inside the Palace coerced Emperor Su-jong's (King Go-jong's son) cabinet to approve Korea's annexation to the Japan Empire. After her beloved father suddenly died from poisoning in 1919 - allegedly by the occupying Japanese - the Japanese forced Princess Deokye to leave Korea and her family for an education in Japan - a move that started an endless spiral of disappointment, unfulfilled hopes and dreams, and profound sadness until she was able to return to Korea thirty-seven years later in 1962. The fictionalized portion, based upon Kwon Bi-young's 2009 novel, is seamlessly woven into the film and includes several fictional characters whose roles add to the drama, tears, action and excitement. Princess Deokhye lived out the rest of her years at Chang-deok Palace until she passed away in 1989. She is buried at Hong-ryu-reung outside of Seoul.

What a wonderful movie, one that had my heart in it's throat from the very beginning to the end. I was so moved by the storyline and the love between the lead actors. I've always admired Kim Tae-won's acting and I found him to be superb in this movie. His expressions, how he moves and changes his expression, really captured the image of the actor as a whole. The other actors also did an excellent job. The movie was based on the true story of a group of Korean men who were thrown out of Korea and captured by Japanese. This movie shows the Korean men's struggle and agony in escaping from Japanese captivity. I thought the movie was excellent. I was really moved by the story and the actors who played the characters. I could not find any fault with the movie. I can't say enough about the acting and the plot. It really moves and touched me. This movie is definitely one that I would watch over and over again. This is definitely one of the best movies I have seen in a long time.

I have seen this movie 4 times now and i've found out that this is a movie that will touch your heart. The film is full of the emotions that an ordinary person feels. In my opinion, the most memorable scenes are the ones that show the one that is depressed, the one that is mad, and the one that is sad. This is a movie that will teach you that there are others that have your problems but you are not alone. If you are a person who is trying to break out of your little world of emotions, this movie is for you. I highly recommend this movie to all people. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as i did. PS: Do not forget to watch the end credits!

I didn't have high expectations about this movie, since I haven't been following it in detail. But I was pleasantly surprised by the final product. The plot is not the most straightforward and the story is a little confusing. But the director and screenwriter managed to make the film flow very well. I'm going to watch this movie again. I would recommend this movie to anyone. 10/10

I am totally in love with the Korean movies and especially the movies in the Korean speaking part. "A Hero" is one of the best Korean movies I have ever seen and it is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen in my life. I am a huge fan of Korean movies. I like most movies, from Hollywood to Korean. This is the first time I ever watch Korean movies and I am just in love with it. I love everything Korean and this is my favorite movie. I also like the fact that there is a lot of fighting scenes. This movie has lots of fighting scenes and I love it. I love the actors and the way they talk. I love the music in the movie. I love the movie's feel. I love the story. I love how the director made the movie. This movie is the best movie I have ever seen and I am in love with it.

I've been anticipating this film for many years and when it finally did come out, I watched it again. I loved the film, I still do. The only part that I can truly describe it as is that the cinematography was amazing and the cinematography for the actors in the movie was incredible. The cast was fantastic and their chemistry was amazing. The story itself was good and it kept the audience's interest and attention. The background music was also fantastic and added to the film's atmosphere. I feel like this film does what I want a film to do, it provides the audience with a feeling of nostalgia and a feeling of sadness at the same time. I highly recommend this film to anyone who wants to enjoy a good film with great cinematography and a great story. I feel like it deserves an Oscar. This is a must see for any film lover.

This is the most powerful movie I've ever seen, as well as one of the most underrated. The films main theme is to show how the average Korean is discriminated against, where the government keeps changing the laws to cater to the interests of the people, but never seems to care for the real problems that plague the country. In the end the Korean society is brought to its knees, due to the violence and corruption, and becomes a brutal dictatorship, the people are just left without a voice. This film is so powerful, that even though I have to admit that the film was a bit slow at times, and it is a bit too long, I still love it, it has a message that many people in Korea may not get, but still. In conclusion, I love this film, it's a fantastic film, and it should be watched by all Koreans, and the world.

Yes, I was a fan of 'The Kingdom' before. I don't regret. I'll say that, I like this movie so much, that I actually feel a bit sick. I think that this movie is a great masterpiece, and if you're a movie lover, you should see it.

Korean actors and actresses are being recognized with more recognition and respect, especially for their performances in Hollywood movies. The roles in this movie are very diverse, from historical dramas to comedy. This movie was made by the Chinese director Zhang Yimou and the Korean director Park Joon-sung. The Chinese director Zhang Yimou is a well-known Asian director and actor, and his movie is also very successful in China. This movie is also very well-made and full of emotional moments. If you're a Korean, you will definitely enjoy this movie. I also found this movie very well-made and realistic. I highly recommend it.

Maintaining the spirit of the original story, this movie follows the path of human-animal bond and human-animal unity, while reflecting the importance of "love" between a person and a companion animal, and the potential for reconciliation. A heart-wrenching and sometimes emotionally charged story of interspecies and cross-species harmony, the film transcends historical borders and borders of culture and religion and the actor and the actress are able to express their feelings with heart-felt dignity. A well-deserving and award-winning film that has earned an international reputation for its relevance in changing the views on such issues as interspecies relations, cultural diversity, and the importance of the relationship between a human and an animal, the film could be a cause of hope for the future. A must see.

I never had the chance to watch the previous Korean film in the Trilogy, "The Divergent", but I do know that I'll probably watch the next Korean film. I've never been a fan of the Korean film industry, but I have been a fan of the Korean film industry for a long time. That's why I'm not surprised that the film had been so good. And I'm not sure why some critics would criticize the film. I think the movie is highly enjoyable. The story is very good, and the characters are very interesting. I was really excited to see the film. When I first saw it, I was really surprised by the characters. It was a bit more serious than I expected. The actors did a great job. The young actors in the film have been doing a great job, and I think they will be doing even better in the sequels. My favorite character is Kai. He is probably the most interesting one in the film. He has this strange attitude towards the world and the people. He is very caring and kind. Kai is the one that drives the movie and will probably be the one that people will talk about the most. The movie was also very good in showing how different humans are. When you are in a different culture, you can't see everything and it will be very difficult for you to see things that others don't see. It was interesting to see that each culture is different, even though they are all very similar. I really enjoyed the acting, and I thought the film was very well made. The directing and cinematography were also good. All in all, I thought that the movie was extremely well made. I think the film is highly recommended for any Korean film fan. I also think it is very important to support the Korean film industry, because they are the ones who will make the sequels for The Hunger Games and Divergent. I believe that we should be going to theaters to watch the films like these. This will help us to understand the themes and the details of these films better. If you haven't seen the films yet, go to your local movie theater and go to see them, because you won't regret it. I also think that it is important to get to know the actors, because they are very important to the story and to the characters. I think that this is what we're missing in our own culture, because we don't understand them very well.

I'm not going to lie. This is the best Korean movie ever. The acting was very realistic and true. The story line was awesome. I can't explain the drama in this movie. I think it was very good. I didn't even know what the story line was. When I watched this movie, I couldn't help myself. It was full of emotion, so I'm not going to spoil it for you. If you haven't watched this movie yet, I recommend you to watch it.

I really liked this movie and I really do not know what to write about. I can watch it again and again and I never get bored. The story is good, the acting is good and the movie itself is a good movie. Don't expect anything new but just enjoy this movie with your family or with a friend. Just a great movie.

I watched this movie and found it a bit hard to keep up with the plot, it really is a very complex one. I will not give a detailed summary, as that would take more than one viewing. This is a very intense story, one that will keep you on the edge of your seat and glued to the screen, and no matter how many times I see it, I can still get caught up in the story and find myself thinking about it. I also find this movie to be extremely exciting, the fight scenes are intense and not to be taken lightly. The plot and the characters are really not to be taken lightly either, as it really is a very disturbing story, as it involves a lot of violence and gore, it really doesn't stop the story at all, even though the story may be disturbing. I have been watching this movie for years now and I still find it extremely interesting and I will watch it again and again, and I don't see how I can watch this movie all of a sudden without thinking about it.

When I first heard that there was going to be a Korean film in theatres here in Korea, I had a feeling of excitement that the whole nation would be re-engaged in a good, well-made film. But I was wrong. I had the feeling that the film was trying to be too much of a masterpiece to be judged by the Koreans, so they lowered the bar for the Koreans to really enjoy it. But that's a minor complaint. This is one of the greatest movies ever made and it has many things that make it stand out. First, the beautiful cinematography. The camera work is so beautifully composed that it is absolutely incredible. The color and lighting is just right, and the overall look of the film is extremely cinematic. I've seen plenty of movie trailers and there's nothing that I would compare it to other than that. The story is good. I wouldn't say it's "intelligent" or anything, but it is well-paced. It's not a story that can be adequately explained in a few minutes, and that's a good thing. I liked the way the story was told. It was told from the point of view of Kim Jong-Il, so the viewer knows a little bit of what he went through. I like the way it was told because it makes you feel for him. There are many things that are shown from Kim's point of view, and I really loved that. When the film begins, I didn't know what to expect. It starts with a shot of a nuclear missile being tested and a huge explosion, and that's about it. I didn't know what to expect, but I guess it was good because it started off well. I was very surprised by how well the film was directed. The first half hour is almost silent, so it's not the most exciting thing in the world, but that's the point. There is no need to tell the story because you can see it in the first half hour. The second half hour is also very, very good. I don't want to say that there is a lot of action, because there isn't. The action is very restrained. I'm not sure why that is, but it works really well. The character drama is also very well done, and I think that is very important. I think that it really shows the importance of the North Korean system. I don't know why, but I think that it's important. The two main characters are extremely important to the plot. They both are very important to the story and the characters are also very important to the plot. You don't really know what's going on in their minds until the end of the film. The casting is also really good. You know very little about Kim Jong-Il, and he plays a very important role in the plot, so that really helps. I also like the way the actors and actresses are chosen. I'm not sure why they're chosen, but they all seem very appropriate. The thing that really stands out in the movie is the music. It is very unique. There is a very powerful mix of classical and modern music and it works perfectly. The use of modern music and the classical music is also

With over 5 years of being a TV director I must say that "The Sunflowers" is one of my favourite dramas. It is a story about two young girls from a poor background and how they overcome their situations. It has a great screenplay, superb acting, stunning cinematography and is one of the most meaningful dramas of the year. The plot involves the changing of the past when the two girls grew up and their mother left them. The mother of the girl who was the centre of attention and the son who didn't want to leave home even though he was afraid. The movie makes you think about life, love, friendship and the deep power of love. It's a movie about hope and the tragedy of losing someone close. It is a beautiful movie with heart touching scenes and a powerful story. The cast is spectacular. Choi Joon Hyuk and Jang Dong Hyuk as the main characters are very good. The acting is not top notch but is excellent. The two young stars who are of Korean and South Korean descent really shine and are perfect in their roles. The actress playing the mother is not a star but she did well. I love this movie and I'm glad I got the chance to see it.

As the author of "I'm a Teenage Soldier", this movie reminded me of "I'm an American Soldier" by Justin Chang. A lot of the dialogues in this movie are from the novel, "I'm an American Soldier". I also think it is a good movie. It is a very different movie. However, it is different from the novel in many ways. The story line is different. Many people may think it is a movie based on a novel. However, the plot is very similar to the novel. The screenplay is the same as the novel. The characters are the same as the novel. But they change a bit. There is one thing that is different from the novel, the character of the enemy. In the novel, the enemy is portrayed as very mysterious, but in the movie, it is shown as a hero. However, it is still a hero. The hero is the villain, and the villain is the hero. I think that is a good change. Overall, this is a good movie. It is different from other Korean movies. However, I would say that it is an average movie. However, it is different from other Korean movies.

One of my favorite movies of all time. I first saw this movie in first grade and it made me a huge fan of Korean film. Now I have seen the second half of the movie in college, and I still love the movie. The acting in the movie is so natural, I would go out of my way to find it in the US. The direction is fantastic. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of Korean films and Korean culture. I've even seen it on DVD. This movie is one of my favorites and I've seen it dozens of times. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves movies and want to see a great film.

This is a very good movie. It's the best Korean movie ever made. It's the Korean version of The Bourne Ultimatum and is very similar to that film. It also has a good story, great acting, good story line, and is a good action movie. This is a very good movie, and it is the best Korean movie ever made.
