The documentary investigates what happened to the funds of Gojong of Korea. The general consensus is that Gojong had fought to preserve Korean sovereignty, but was betrayed from within by traitors amongst the elite. He had a friendhsip with Homer Hulbert, an American Methodist missionary who became a crusader for Korean independence (he was expelled in 1907, the same year Gojong was forced to abdicate, signifying the de facto loss of Korean sovereignty). He returned to South Korea, after Korea's partitioning, and died there.

In recent years, the Royal Family have received something of a higher profile due to the visibility of Prince Seok (Yi Seok or Lee Seok) and also the popularity of royalty-themed dramas on TV.
