Luckily, she was able khổng lồ reunite with Klặng Jang Han who gave sầu her solace throughout the film.

It was a heartwarming scene when she was found by Kyên Jang Han after so many years. Isolated, alone, và unaware of what has changed in the world, it is a bittersweet reunion for the two leads.

Final Thoughts

Son Ye Jin did not disappoint me in this film! Her portrayal of Deokhye seems like the role was made for her. She really deserves bagging the Best Actress award in Baekthanh lịch và Grand Bell baông xã in năm nhâm thìn.

Did this film make me cry? Absolutely. Ye Jin’s acting was spot-on making me sympathize with her character all throughout. Got to lớn mention Park Hae Il’s outstanding performance in this film as well! And yes, Ra Mi Ran nailed her performance as the most loyal court lady every princess could ask for.

Story-wise, it is indeed an enlightening yet heartbreaking film. I’ve sầu felt Deokhye’s desperation of wanting lớn come baông xã trang chủ. It made me underst& more how Korea was like under Japanese rule. Which I can relate lớn as the Philippines were also colonized by nhật bản during World War II.


Even though several parts of the film were fictionalized, its execution can make the audience feel like they’ve been with the characters baông chồng in the day. The film is such a fantastic approach for people interested to lớn learn more about the last days of Korea’s Joseon Dynasty.

Overall rating: 10/10
