In korean drama world, historical setting are must watched. I'm not really a fan of historical dramas but there are some that capture my heart, so here it goes.

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

If you're looking for a fresh story line, numerous goodlooking oppas, historical romance, conspiracy plot, this drama is for you. Hae Soo is a 21st century woman who gets caught in a solar eclipse and is transported to the Goryeo Dynasty, which ruled Korea from the 10th century for nearly 500 years. Suddenly, Hae Soo finds herself in the royal palace, where she comes across Fourth Prince Wang So. Adding to the drama are other princes in the palace with their own unique personality and agenda. Lee Joon ki, Kang Ha neul, Ji soo, Nam Joo hyuk, Byun Baekhyun made this extra feels cos of their presence. This drama is for the strong hearted. I repeat, strong hearted. It has everything you could ask for including action, romance, handsome princes, drama, and so much intensity. The drama was both epic and tragic. Get ready your tissues for Scarlet Heart will seriously break your heart to million pieces and until now, I am still shattered.

Moon Embracing the Sun

Set in the Joseon dynasty, two brothers find themselves falling in love with a female shaman, who does not remember her noble past. Lee Hwon is the Crown Prince, but he finds the role a burden to bear. He would rather have his older, more talented brother Yang Myung play the role, but because Yang Myung is an illegitimate child he has no right to the crown. If you're still not convinced, Kim Soo hyun is in this drama (my 1st ever drama to watch with Soo hyun) and I tell you this is the sh*t.

Moonlight Drawn by the Clouds

In an attempt to give men great love advice, Hong Ra On disguises herself as a man -- but things take a weird turn when she unknowingly gives advice to the Crown Prince and begins to fall for him. At first I only watched this because of Park Bo gum but while watching this drama, it hit me. We have a fantastic couple that were all kinds of cute at the heart of the drama backed by a solid story. They are just pure adorable with a thickened story during latter episodes.

Sungkyunkwan Scandal

A girl disguises herself as a man to get into Sungkyunkwan University where she finds herself drawing the affections of several of the other students. Sungkyunkwan Scandal is a fun drama on so many levels. I also think it’s one of the perfect dramas for someone new to historicals. It’s never too heavy and really focuses on the relationships of our scholars. I really enjoy dramas with girls disguising themselves as guys. (To the Beautiful You and His Beautiful!!!)

hwarang image

Hwarang is about the original Hwarang warriors of Silla who are young, elite, and known for being beautiful. The warriors include a man from the lowest class of Silla named Dog-Bird and the hidden King Jinheung who secretly joins. The men also both fall for the maiden Ah Ro. This drama is based on real hwarang, young, handsome noblemen who were skilled in the fine and martial arts and who were tasked with protecting Silla. What makes Hwarang extra special is the beautiful men of Silla. No joke. This show has so many beautiful faces that it is almost painful. Park Seo Joon, Park Hyung sik, Kim Tae hyun (V), Choi Minho, and Do Ji han are just a few of the dazzling visuals that graced the screen. If nothing else, a drama fan could simply indulge in the pretty after a long day and be perfectly content. Just like Moon Lovers, this drama is filled with good looking leads that would swoon you off your feet.
