This is also the first Korean movie I've watched, it wraps up nicely without the stereotypical American Hollywood ending. I loove the designs and the fashions in the Joseon-era drama and the orcchestral score.

Enjoyed watching this as well. Not sure how accurate it was but still an interesting look into Korean history. Interesting plot, beautiful clothes and artistry.

This was my first-ever Korean film! I really enjoyed it! It was subtle, scandalous, tragic, full of colors and very interesting. Definitely not something I am used to watching, but would recommend!
