Visits to imaginary worlds and beyond
I bought this drama more by chance, I wanted to buy another one and then suddenly I saw this one and decided to give it a try! And I have to say it has quickly become one of my favorite kdramas so far. It’s a time-traveling story of a modern doctor who is abducted by a warrior out of the past (Goryeo Dynasty) to save the King’s wife, who had been hurt in an attack. I’m normally not so much into romantic love stories, but I simply loved how the relationship between the warrior and the doctor evolved. What I like so much about this drama is how the characters develop. So for example at first I didn’t like the modern doctor at all, but she really matured over the episodes and became quite sympathetic to me. The same about the king, who seemed so insecure and annoying at first but became one of my favorite characters throughout the drama. The growing relationship between him and the queen was also heartwarming. There are so many interesting and likeable characters in here, not only among the protagonists.
And then I also found all those intrigues at court interesting and liked that some of the characters have magical skills, and I loved the music a lot, too. An interesting fact is that some of the characters really existed in Korean history and also some of the events depicted in the drama are part of Korean history. I’m not going to write more in detail so I won’t spoil it for anyone, just to say that I absolutely loved this kdrama a lot and that it made me feel very touched and moved by the story :-)
