The Last Empress (2018) is a kdrama about a girl named Oh Sunny/Empress(Jang Na Ra) who ends up becoming the empress because Lee Hyuk/Emperor(Shin Sung Rok) tries to cover up his crime of killing someone.

Later one of the people who the Emperor thinks he killed Na Wang Shik/Chun Woo(Choi Jin Hyuk) changes his looks and comes back as a bodyguard for the emperor to seek revenge for his mother.

Overall I enjoyed this drama until the end chemistry between the leads was good, and I would like to give credit to Shin Eun Kyung who played Empress Dowager Kang Eun Ran she did a fantastic job as the villain in this kdrama. 

Overall the story was good, but they left out Choi Jin Hyuks character towards the end but other than that the everyone in this cast did a good job acting in this modern constitutional monarchy based fantasy setting. 

I would recommend anyone who likes Action/Revenge/Comedy/Romance/Melodrama types of kdrams to watch this one for sure.
