… And the rest is history. Itching to watch a new historical drama? Listed below are my top picks for historical Kdramas. Historical dramas are truly one of my favourite types of dramas as their plots always seem to based around conspiracy and vengance of some sort. If I miss one of your favourite dramas make sure to write a comment below to let me know!
The storyline of Faith is something I would dream about. Who wouldn’t want an handsome man to bring you back into the past? As usual, this is another super hit by Lee Min Ho. It’s really good drama and I was glad the main lead isn’t some prince or king this time.
-4) Rooftop Prince
Rooftop Prince was the first historical drama I watched and I really loved the plot line. The acting in this show is really well done and I honestly was not expecting the ending. However, this is an amazing drama that takes a few episodes to get addicted. I advise to not judge the drama based on the first episode. In my opinion, the first episode is not really that well done but the story does get WAY better in the second episode.
-3) Sungkyunkwan Scandal
Gender bending stories have also been my favourite and Sungkyunkwan Scandal is not exception. This show is the perfect balance of comedy and romance with a dash to action and mystery. Honestly there is an undeniable charm of this show that cannot be overlooked. The acting is fantastic but personally I loved the supporting characters than the lead couple. I will warn you that there is a high possibility of falling for the second lead in this drama.
If there is one drama that I could watch over and over, it would be Hwarang. The reason I started watching Hwarang was because V (from BTS) was acting in the show. But honestly once I started the show I fell in love with the plot. The storyline is similar to something you would read in a novel. Also, I LOVED the supporting cast who made up the Hwarang group (which were mostly men *wink*). The only part of the show that makes it come second, is the character of the female lead. The female lead can be a tad annoying with her crying in basically every episode. If you have never seen an historical drama, I highly advise you watch this one!
-1) Scarlet Heart Ryeo
I think many people can agree that Scarlet Heart Ryeo is one of the best historical dramas ever! Not only is the cast stunning, but their acting is unbelievably good and the storyline is amazingly bittersweet. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but I will say this, this drama will make you shout, scream, smile and laugh. Trust me, even if you are not a fan of historical dramas, this is one kdrama that you don’t want to miss out on. Plus, to have so many handsome princes in one drama is certainly a treat.
