  1. You really, really should watch Six Flying Dragons all the way until the end! I started with the historical shows. They have the action I crave, but the romance stories are something that I really enjoy (much more than traditional chick flicks)–I get teary eyed quite often! My first show was Queen Seon Duk (2009). i was hooked! Some of my favorites all time:

    Arang and the Magistrate
    Blood (2015)
    Empress Ki (2013)
    Fated to Love You (2014)
    Goblin: The Great and Lonely God (2016)
    Grand Prince (2018)
    Gumiho: Tale of the Fox Child (aka Grudge: The Revolt of Gumiho) (2010)
    Hwarang (2016)
    Hong Gil Dong (2008)
    Iljimae (2008)
    Jewel in the Palace (2003)
    Jumong (2007)
    Kingdom (2019)
    Kim Soo Ro (The Iron King) (2010)
    Mirror of the Witch (2016)
    Rebel: Thief of the People (2017)
    Slave Hunters (Chuno) (2010)
    The Age of Blood (2017) Korean *****
    The Crowned Clown (2017) Korean, tv ****
    The Flower in Prison (2016) (Korean, tv) ****1/2
    The Great Doctor/Faith (2012)
    The Joseon Gunman (2014)
    The Kingdom of the Wind(s) (2008)(occurs after Jumong)
    The King’s Woman (2017)
    Tree With Deep Roots (2011)
    Warrior Baek Dong Soo (2011)
    Yi San (2007)

    Jang Hyuk is my favorite actor and Slave Hunters would probably be my favorite (followed by Jumong). However, Jewel in the palace is a big surprise. It’s about a woman who becomes a cook in the king’s kitchen and later the first female doctor (Dae Jang Guem. based on a true story of Joseon Dynasty). I have no one who will listen to me either! I’ve begged my wife and son to watch just one episode or to trade–I’ll watch anything they want me to in exchange for them watching my stuff, but they hate subtitles! Note: this is a partial list, I’m hooked!


    1. Oh yes! I am so excited by this amazing list! Thank you so much!!
      I’ve watched quite a few of these but definitely not all of them (and actually there are quite a few here I don’t even know about at all!! Will definitely be going to check them out now – thank you!).

      I’ve also been wanting to watch Slave Hunter for ages but never got around to it, so I am bumping it up on my list now. Thank you for the suggestion!

      I really love all the historical dramas too, it is amazing how much you end up learning when you connect all the dramas together as well, and start to understand the history a bit better! Korea has such a fascinating history, and once you start watching these it is impossible to stop!

      I think my very first ever historical drama was Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and I slowly started to become hooked on the historical ones after that. They are so good, with so much danger and adventure and plotting and romance. I just adore them!

      And gosh, they make me cry all the time! πŸ™‚
      I hope you are able to one day convince your family to join you in watching them! Good luck!
