Addictive Rating: 2
Synopsis: [Taken from wiki.d.addicts.com] The story of the secret love between Lee Hwon, a fictional king of Joseon, and Wol, a female shaman. Wol was born as Heo Yeon Woo, the daughter of a noble family who won the love of the crown prince, Hwon. Her enemies, jealous of her family's position in court, schemed against her and wrestled away her rightful place as crown princess and nearly takes her life. Years later, an embittered Hwon meets Wol, now a female shaman who has no recollection of her past.
What I have to say:
Kim Yoo Jung (pictured on right) is a young actress that swept me away in the beginning of this drama. I think she may be what reeled me in. The plot itself didn't feel quite as breathtaking as some other period dramas I've seen, but nonetheless it was still a fantastic drama. I am a huge fan of the soundtrack, too, which quite frankly, does help. The heavy romantic aspect of the drama made it melancholy at times, but it's a familiar ache that many people have experienced in some way (though likely not as tragically as what's seen in this drama) and can relate to. Definitely worth the 20 episodes!

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
