  2. Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi English Title: Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi Hangul Title: 어사조이뎐 Genre: Historical, Mystery, Comedy, Drama Director: Yoo Jong Sun Writer: Lee Jae Yoon Network: tvN Official Website: http://program.tving.com/tvn/inspectorjoy Episodes: 16 Release Date: Nov 8, 2021 Synopsis: “The Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” (literal title) is a historical comedy investigation drama about a young gourmet who ends up becoming a secret royal inspector (a undercover official who inspects local provinces to expose corruption) teaming up with a divorced woman who is searching for happiness. Together, they set out on a grand scheme to uncover the truth. Taecyeon will be playing the secret royal inspector Ra Yi Eon who wishes for nothing more than to open a small dumpling store outside the capital where the land is cheap. But he has a good brain that gets him through the state examination and even secures him a spot as an official in the Office of Special Advisors—a position normally reserved for only the most elite. Ultimately, he finds himself receiving secret orders to carry out missions as a secret royal inspector. Even though he unintentionally ended up following a career path that others would die for, Ra Yi Yeon’s real concerns are securing lunch time during work and getting off work right on time. When he gets home from work, he cooks dumplings for himself and lazily rolls around his room. However, the life of the lazy homebody changes when he meets Kim Jo Yi. Kim Hye Yoon takes on the role of Kim Jo Yi, a unconventional woman of the Joseon era who thinks that getting divorced isn’t a big deal. Three years ago, she got married with a gambling addict and mama’s boy, and needless to say, she led a rocky married life. She finally divorces the man after several complications, only to be met with another obstacle: the appearance of a secret royal inspector. The moment it seemed like her dream to begin a new life was crushed, her life was actually starting anew. Together, the unmotivated secret royal inspector Ra Yi Yeon and the reckless divorced woman Kim Jo Yi will embark on a journey to investigate and defeat corrupt politicians. The fact that the drama features a divorced female character who dismisses the Joseon era idea that a wife must serve her husband draws attention for its novelty. Source
  3. My Country: The New Age Hangul Title: 나의 나라 Director: Kim Jin Won Writer: Chae Seung Dae Broadcast: October 4 - November 23, 2019 Episodes: 16 Casts Yang Se Jong as Seo Hwi Woo Do Hwan as Nam Seon Ho Seol Hyun as Han Hui Jae Jang Hyuk as Yi Bang Won Ahn Nae Sang as Nam Jeon Kim Young Chul as Yi Seong Gye Plot Summary Review / Thoughts The cinematography and direction are pretty good amongst the sageuk I've seen. Yang Se Jong's character was one of the saddest I know in kdrama land. He's never had any break, always on the go, getting beaten up, trampled on and even poisoned. Hwi's characterisation felt less explored, and personality was more straight forward, it was not as interesting. While Woo Do Hwan's was much more compelling because of the emotional turmoil and inner conflicts he has with his ambition, Hwi and his father. All the while I thought Seon Ho would turn evil and betray Hwi (which he sort of did but with good reasons) like how other sageuk dramas would, but Seon Ho is not cold-hearted like his father. Due to his soft heart towards the Seo siblings, Seon Ho always found himself at the cross road. -- Spoiler -- Now, what I dislike, is the execution for the ending for Hwi and Seon Ho. What I do like is in the final scene for Yi Bang Won. He sits at the throne giving out a dry laugh, tears flowing out of his eye as he comforts himself he did well. The "he/you did well" had a deeper meaning to it in the story too. The scene rightfully conveyed the resignation of a king who sacrifices everything for power. From then onwards, Yi Bang Won became the loneliest person in the world—however this is his "Dae Yi". He therefore had to endure. It's what he owes to Hwi. It was a joy watching the sparks between the young rising actors Se Jong, Do Hwan acting against veterans Jang Hyuk and Ahn Nae Sang. Although I wasn't satisfied with some of the story-telling and sad ending, I really do enjoy the acting performances. There were some very memorable scenes that showcase their stellar performances. I particularly love the tension between Se Jong and Ahn Nae Sang's scenes. There was one scene that even Ahn Nae Sang later revealed he got a little scared because Se Jong was so immersed in his emotion that he told Nae Sang he really wanted to cut his neck, LOL! Another scene I really liked was when Jang Hyuk tells Nae Sang, Se Jong is under his protection. I find that scene very powerful. Overall I find the story insufficient in the depiction of Hwi and Seon Ho's characterisation, especially Hwi. And I was also disappointed that Hwi, being the mastermind, was not utilised well into the story-telling for the Strife of the Princes. My fave of this story though had to be Hwi and Seon Ho's friendship/bromance. There is also a little bit of romance between Yang Se Jong and Seol Hyun but it is not the main focus of the story and because of that it is not developed well. Jang Hyuk's portrayal of Yi Bang Won is awesome, and very different to the Yi Bang Won in Six Flying Dragons. While Six Flying Dragons glorified the Yi clan, this show portrayed them to be blood thirsty, ambitious political and conniving. Plot/Story: 8.5 Cast/Acting: 9 Production values: 8 Re-Watch value: 7 (I would re-watch certain scenes but to watch it all in full is hard due to the heavy content) Overall value: 8

Protocol dictates that he may keep a group of concubines at court, so his royal advisors select a number of women from high-profile families for the task. Among their number is Bu Meng , the daughter of a notable civil servant who dutifully serves the imperial family. But not everyone wants to be an imperial concubine – least of all Bu Meng! She does her utmost to avoid having to spend any time with the Emperor, contriving to avoid him whenever possible. Eventually, she finds unlikely friends among the other concubines, whose number includes a blubbering bag of nerves, a highly trained martial arts expert and a wily woman with plenty of street smarts. Still, Bu Meng is determined to spend as little time as possible with the Emperor. Irked by her behaviour, one day the Emperor picks a quarrel with her – and is surprised to find that she gives as good as she gets when she’s in an argument.
