Sry for being slow in writing this review. Wanted to post it with the others when I started this blog but was not able to. As I only managed to refresh my memory on this drama after watching it a second time, I am posting it now. It is still good watching it now and then.
Queen In Hyun’s man (2012) 仁显王后的男人
Genre: Time-travel, Romance, Action
Enjoyment: 10/10 Pace: 9/10 No. of times I watched it: 2
starring Ji Hyun Woo as Kim Boong Do and Yoo In Na as Choi Hee Jin.
Plot: The drama about a classic scholar who arrives 300 years into the modern times (year 2012) from the Chosun (year 1694) through time warp and meets a delinquent actress. Park Boong Do (Ji Hyun Woo) is a scholar who had supported the reinstatement of Queen In Hyun when Jang Heebin’s schemes resulted in her being deposed and replaced as King Sukjong’s queen consort. He travels 300 years into the future of modern Seoul and meets Choi Hee Jin (Yoo In Na), a no-name actress who is expecting a career renaissance through her role as Queen In Hyun in a TV drama ‘New Jang Heebin’. Whenever he meets danger in Chosun year, he will end up in the modern time due to a talisman he carries. He falls in love with Hee Jin. He also intelligently uses the time-travelling ability to help the king get rid of the evil courtiers.
Why you should watch: This is another drama that leaves a deep impression as the events unfold. They have great chemistry. By the way, they were actually real life couple. The plot is brilliant and it is different from rooftop prince as Boong Do travels to and fro between the past and present rather than staying in the present. The perspective is also different as he is not a crown prince but rather a scholar who wants to help Queen In Hyun after his family is executed.
