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

Good morning, Department Head.


Good morning.

Reporter Lee, I haven't

seen many reports lately.

Look this over.

Oh, sure.

Thank you, Department Head.


Welcome, Department Head Kim.

The new government will

promote the 6th Korea-Japan talks.

Department Head, it's Japan.

Please transfer the call to

the Department Head's desk.

The call is transferred.

We found her!

We found the princess.

Did you hear me?

Where is she living?

I understand. We'll talk later.

Has she been found?

That's great!

Then you should go on the trip

this time instead of me.

Thank you.

Have a drink.

My child.

There will be a lot of good things in the New Year.


Yes, Your Majesty.

Your Majesty, we will shoot on

the count of 3.

One. Two. Three.


Agassi! Agassi! Agassi!...

[young lady]

Your Majesty, the news of your

disapproval of this union

seems to have reached the ears

of the Emperor of Japan.

And so?

We will arrange a date to travel

to Japan.

Telling me I should go kneel down,

can you still be considered one

of my subjects?

Can you still be considered one

of my subjects?

I am now...


Your Majesty's subject.

Your Majesty's subject.

I do not approve of a union

between Joseon and Japan.

This is for the sake of our people

and our country.

Under the rule of Japan, Joseon will

become even more rich and powerful.

Yes, it is possible everyone will


You 150,000. You 100,000.

Wan Yong, are you the second

or third wealthiest in Joseon?

Even if you desire nothing but

personal gain,

do you have nothing to sell

but your country?

You rotten fellows will leave

a dirty stain on our history!


Agassi, you cannot!

Please let me hide behind you.

Okay, my child.

I heard you sent a secret envoy to

the International Peace Conference.

That was stupid.

Please apologize to the Emperor

of Japan, Your Majesty.

Even if I die, something like that

will never happen.

Disrespectful fellow. Move out

of the way.

He said he was leaving for

Shanghai tonight, right?

Yes, Your Majesty.

After meeting Mr. Wu Dang, he

will convey your decision.

This will be our last chance,

so please be careful.


Did you call my nephew to

come here?

Yes, Your Majesty.

Let him in.


Come a bit closer.

You're quite handsome.

Who is this?

"Jang" meaning seal.

"Han" meaning endurance.

I am Kim Jang Han.

Jang meaning seal.

Han meaning endurance.

Your name is Jang Han?

Yes, Your Majesty.

You are the second son

of General Kim Hwang

Ah, head of the Manchurian

Restoration Army.

The death of your father must

have been a great blow to you.

Since you have taken care of me

like a father,

it has given me a lot of comfort.

Then why have you rejected

becoming my son-in-law?

To continue my late father's wishes, I

plan to join the independence movement.

I was thinking of retreating

to Shanghai.

Now the whole world will know what

things the Japanese have done.

But if things don't go well, I don't

know what may happen to the princess.

I would like for you to protect my princess

well, so she won't be killed by the Japanese.

Despite your young age,

I have decided it would be best for you

and Princess Deok Hye to be married.

Your Majesty, I have brought

your cinnamon punch.

Come in.


Father, look at this!

This is the painting I made.

What are you doing?

Don't come any closer.






What's wrong?


Father, what's wrong?


Father, what's wrong?

Father, please get up!

Father! Father! Father!

Father, what's wrong?

Father, get up!

Father! Father! Father!

The state funeral of King Gojong,

under the supervision of the

Japanese military chief,

was carried out in the Japanese


Suspicion that he had been poisoned

This incident became the root of

resistance against Japanese colonial rule.

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?

No. He wants it to be worn.


Princess! Princess!

Hello, Your Highness.



This way please.

These clothes are really


I was confused whether I could

even wear a coat or not.

Just endure it for a while.

No pictures!

What's going on?

It's the hope of Joseon!

Princess, what is this about?

Is there something wrong?

Did you not expect anyone else

to be here?


you didn't expect a Korean princess

to wear the kimono you sent over.

Bok Sun, you b*tch...

Is it unattractive?

Let's go, Bok Sun.

Is it unattractive?

Why did they tell us to come

if we can't take pictures?


Thank you.

Children, shall we sing the

princess a song?
