Queen For Seven Days is a story of love between a lady called Shin Chae Kyung and her prince. Their love in this drama is so achingly sweet, and yet devastatingly sad. 😍😭 This fiction sageuk drama is based on a true story, which makes it even more heartfelt. Their real-life love story (mostly folklore) can be found in the net (in Hangul).
From day one, Queen For Seven Days is known as a drama with tragic love story. And those who know the real story, will also know why. I signed into this drama knowing for sure I will cry my heart out like what I did in Uncontrollably Fond and Oh My Geum Bi. And what I can tell you is, ALL those that watched this drama ended up crying along the journey and particularly at the end. Crying doesn’t mean weak. For this drama, crying means celebrating their sweet beautiful love until the end of time. Although the drama is not 100% true to history, for us living in 2017, getting to know their love story that happened over 500 years ago means their love stood the test of time. For that, I’m in awe!
Oh Yes!!! My Korean drama addiction is still going strong. I’m more selective/fussy this year when choosing what I want to watch. In total, I watched 12 Korean dramas and another 6 which I ditched because I couldn’t stand them.
There are 3 K. dramas which I considered the BEST in my 2015 drama watch. Two were aired this year and one was aired last year. All this 3 dramas have something in common. They are underrated dramas.

I’m currently diggin’ Healer. Who’s with me?
I went into this drama without any expectation. I knew it would be good because Song Ji Na wrote it but I didn’t expect it would be THIS good (two thumbs up). Who’s Song Ji Na? She’s the brilliant Korean writer that wrote Sandglass and my favorite Faith drama.
I’ve seen Ji Chang Wook previously in Smile Again – not really impressed with his acting there and am not really a fan of Park Min Young. While I’ve never watched any of Yoo Ji Tae dramas. BUT right now I’m really loving the three of them. They make a very nice trio.
