My favorite historical drama ever
24 September 2019 | by bilalkamaranSee all my reviews

My favorite historical drama ever. Song Joong Ki was a scene stealer even back then, so easy to see how he developed so quickly into a leading man. The second lead syndrome WAS STRONG with Yoo In Ahs character. Plot was familiar but very well done. Highly recommended if you aren't a huge fan of historic dramas, plot and OTP will keep you distracted from the hats :p
