In the Joseon era, Kim Yoon-hee masquerades as a boy to earn a living as a book transcriber. Her family's dire circumstances and the encouragement of a noble's son finally drive her to attend Sungkyukwan University, forbidden for females.
A woman, jealous when her friend steals her first love and marries him, lies that she is married too. The lie ensnares a hotel president who goes along with the lie for his own reasons. Will the lie become reality?
The first few moments of "Tamnaneun doda" may seem childish. However, if you can get past it, this drama takes off to the sky!
Humor! Action! Suspense! Romance! Amazing acting! Cuteness! See the history and culture of Jeju Island and see the beautiful scenery! I can not say enough good things about this drama.
However, beware. This drama is very controversial and can be offending. Which may be why this drama is given 10 stars by some and 0 stars by some others. The only minor thing I will complain about is that the drama loses some momentum two-thirds in. A thrilling ride nonetheless.
Comedy in Korean film is rare. Especially in dramas. The only other Korean dramas I've seen that pulls it off this well is "Full House"(2004) and "Lie to me."(2011) This alone and the fact that "Tamnaneun doda" breaks new boundaries, I give it 10/10.
