Tap Into Koreas Rich History: Reasons To Watch Lee Je Hoons Anarchist From Colony

The early 20th-century was a period of serious unrest in Korean history. At that time, the two Koreas were one and Japan occupied the nation. Although tragic, such a rich time period provides so much fodder for cinema, which is something that Director Lee Joon Ik taps into. This director is known for diving into period films and was behind the camera for Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet and The Throne. In Anarchist from Colony, powerhouse actors Lee Je Hoon (as Park Yeol) and Choi Hee Seo (as Kaneko Fumiko) join him to tell the tale of Park Yeol, a revolutionary activist and poet. Beside Park Yeol was a Japanese woman just as strong he, Kaneko Fumiko, and together they worked with their fellow activists to pave the way for Koreans.

A young woman (BoA) prepares for the end and isn't looking to start anything new in "Autumn Sonata". But a young man (Lee Hak-joo) who falls for her won't let her go and love grows between them. Although I'm not a huge fan of melodrama, this trailer really makes me want to explore their relationship with them and see what happiness can bring at the end of this woman's life. 'Cause that's what it's all about, right? Living what you have to its fullest.
