Set in the early 19th century. Goo Hae Ryung works as a historian. Female historians like Goo Hae Ryung are generally looked down upon because of their gender. Yet, Goo Hae Ryung fulfills her duty as a historian. She gets involved with Prince Lee Rim.Written by
The introduction to the show's plot, all the background information and getting to know the characters makes up 25% of the series. Getting through that wasn't easy in my opinion. But when the actual story finally started (as in the prince and the historian meeting for the first time), I was HOOKED. The characters are great and really funny most of the time, yet it didn't feel ridiculous in any way because they were still dealing with some serious topics. I'm not sure how accurate the historical side of the story is, but it didn't seem implausible to me.
The ending was kind of rushed in my opinion, but see for yourself.
In conclusion: don't stop watching if you're struggling with the first few episodes and definitely don't let the somewhat ridiculous title of the show fool you. It's such a good series that deserves to be watched.
