This drama is set during the reign of King Sukjong in the Joseon dynasty. The story mainly focuses on Dong Yi. She is intelligent, charming and a person of noble character and whose destiny is to outshine all those who are against her. At a very young age, she loses her father and older brother who were framed. Dong Yi never forgot what happened. She is determined to clear their innocence at first and enters the palace by working for the Bureau of Music. She then turned into a Lady Investigator. While doing all these great things, Lady Jang, the king's love and a woman she trusted, turns out not to be who she thought she was. Dong Yi becomes a maiden to the Queen and moves the king with her prayers for the Queen who suddenly falls ill. Dong Yi becomes a royal concubine and bears the king a son who later becomes King Yeong-jo.
This is one awesome historical drama!! One of the best I've seen, even though I barely watch them because they take to long to get to the story. This drama has me coming back for more. This drama consists of many twists and turns and keeps its watchers going and going. This is a true story to some extent except there are no records of her past so the beginning is most likely fake but it's still cool. I love how the series is going so far and I can't wait for more episodes.
I really just don't like Lady Jang at all. At first I thought she was nice and I thought that there was a typing error in the synopsis. I was dead WRONG! She and her brother are EVIL!! I mean just evil! These two actors played their parts well. I was so aggravated that I felt like I should jump into the computer screen and kill them myself. Everyone knows that you are into whatever you are watching when you feel like you have to jump into the tv or computer screen and try and kill the person yourself. This drama is that good!! I would recommend it to anyone!!
