But I found the king's character becoming quite dramatic and slightly dislikable towards the end, which probably makes sense because the real King Yeonsangun was far worse. This drama took me back to those days and it was a good mix of a melodrama and a cute story. We do not know how the couple must have felt about this marriage.
Story: You'll find yourself getting excited every couple minutes and feeling the pain and happiness even though it never lasts for long with the characters.
Because of a power struggle, she experienced the death of her father and her own deposition.Next
The story is basically explaining the background of what happened in the first jewel in the palace episodes, minus the parts about the queen.
Prince Jungjong was only twelve when he married Dangyeong. Overall I would definitely recommend this, BUT if you are not a fan of extreme drama then this may be too much.Next
For my the outfits are the best parts of period dramas but I just felt like the scenes would be more pleasant if Chaekyung's outfits were more colourful.
It has no stone screen. She died a lonely and largely forgotten woman.Next
She was the first wife of King Jungjong of Joseon Korea.
He's matched with Park Min Young as Shin Chae Kyung, who I can say the same about. Even though supposedly the king's character is one of the "villains" of the story, along with many other viewers i found myself in love with him. It was even sadder that she was only queen for seven days.Next
Though a relatively small and traditionally isolated place, Korea has a royal history that is almost disproportionately rich in tales of palace intrigue, drama and tragedy.
There's humor, great friendships, some action, and of course romance, and what I thought was an interesting story of 3 people who's lives are controlled by their fate, in spite of their feelings. It's loosely based on historical events. But overall, this drama is my favourite sageuk drama of the year.Next
There are a few statues of tigers and sheep.
We actually go all the way back to childhood with the characters, and the journey to the end is more than just tears. Music: OST overall is quite emotional and cute but my favourite is the one sang by junggio and I still listen to it all the time.
By the time Lee Yeok deposes him he's completely insane.
