Rating: 7.5/10 (6 votes cast)

Yi San, one of the top rating dramas in Korea right now. This drama is simply amazing and reflects some of the best and worst times in Korean history.


This drama is about the life of King Jeongjo, Joseon Dynasty’s 22nd Monarch, who is remembered in Korean history as one of Korea’s greatest Kings who loved the people and reigned for the commoner, not the high-class people.

The drama starts with the King’s early years in which he befriends two children working in the Palace who are later expelled. The king of Joseon, Jeongjo’s grandfather at the time puts Jeongjo’s father, the next crown prince, in a box with no food or water because he fears that the crown prince will rise up against him. Jeongjo wants to save his father and begs his grandfather to save him with the help of his two friends. The drama then skips forward to Jeongjo’s adult years when he and his friends re-establish contact with each other. Throughout, the Jeongjo’s position as then Crown Prince is threatened by palace intrigues.

While still the Crown Prince, Jeongjo begins to fall in love with one of his childhood friends, Seong Song Yeon, the daughter of a palace artist who died when she was very young.
