A Joseon scholar loyal to Queen In Hyeon gets entangled in political conflicts during his time. When he is about to be killed by an assassin he ends up travelling more than 300 years into the future where he lands at the set of a drama showing exactly the time he came from. There he meets the actress playing Queen In Hyeon.
Queen In Hyun's man may be the best time-travelling show out there and one with possibly the sweetest romance as well.
For most shows, time-travel is a means to an end, a way of getting the characters together and with no real set rules. This show is different. Time travel is not only governed by clearly laid out rules, but there are consequences to it that tie back to both the romance, but all the other storylines as well. Plotwise, the show is quite strong.
And for once, the romance is simple and sweet. There are no jerks, no noble idiots, no tears for the sake of tears. The leads treat each other like equals, tease one another and genuinely get to know each other. In a land full of jerks and cold-hearted men, this is refreshing to see.
Queen In-Hyeon's Man may be getting raves of reviews, but their all worth it.
A smart and disciplined man from the past travels to the present so that he can meet a woman who would change his destiny. The woman is famous for her work, but also a flashy and spoiled being who is revealed to also have good feelings.
Both are fantastical romances, with life or death consequences. They have magical elements, with Queen In Hyeon's Man being a time travel drama and My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho having a supernatural/magical character. Characters in both dramas struggle to adjust to modern times and conventions. Not to mention the couples in both are really adorable. If you want a cute supernatural romance then go for My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho.
