I was deeply moved by Emperor Lee’s poem before I was touched by his story. I saw a kind ruler who sacrificed everything for his people, but was humiliated by historians. I wanted to clear his name. Both emperors wrote their poems with blood and tears. I will let you feel their sorrow with your heart.
