“Queen Im Hwa-Ryeong, a highly driven and spirited woman, gives up protocol and breaks all barriers to raise her princes and construct them into fine men who must prove themselves worthy enough to reign over the kingdom of Joseon.”
The Queen’s character is played by Kim Hye-Soo, a well-known actress for her work in The Hypnotized (2004), Tazza: The High Rollers (2006) and The Red Shoes (2005).
This period drama throws light upon two major aspects of the protagonist – a queen and a mother. A queen, who must protect the royal decent from outside competitors and a mother, who questions her children’s upbringing and her ability to transform and protect them.
