The Last Princess

Synopsis: "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

Come in.

Young Master Jang Han is here.

Have you been well?

Hello, Princess.

No news at all. I thought

you had forgotten me.

Should we play a bit?

It's a song I wrote called

"The Rat."

Try to follow along.

You play well.

It looks like it's from Advisor

Han Taek Su.

He'd like you to wear it for the

event tomorrow.

What are you going to do?

Just set it on fire?

even wear a coat or not.

Just endure it for a while.

No pictures!

Princess, what is this about?

Is there something wrong?
