The list of Korean Sageuks

Q. If you don’t mind me asking, can you recommend some good sageuks?

Well, I don’t know what kind of Korean historical drama/movie you would like. (Trendy? Traditional? Political? Romantic? Timeslip?) So, I made the following list of Korean Sageuks (mostly since 2000~) in chronological order. You can pick up anything you want. :)


★ = Good for beginners (You don’t have to know much about Korean history in advance)
◯ = Daebak (popular in South Korea. More than 30% viewership ratings on TV, or over 7 million tickets at the box office.)
◉ = Hallyu hit (popular in foreign countries)
↗ = Timeslip genre
♡ = Romance-centric, or Erotic
◀ = My favorites

Title in Bold + Italic  = My recommendation

Queen for 7 days (2017 KBS)

Watched the first episode of Queen for 7 days 7일의 왕비 (2017 KBS).

Forget the historical facts. Don’t compare this with Rebel : Thief who stole the people 역적 : 백성을 훔친 도적 (2017 MBC). Then you can fully enjoy it as a typical romance drama. It’s easy to follow. You don’t need to know about historical background information at all.

Actually, I don’t know why this drama should bring King Yeonsan and Prince Jinseong (King Jungjong) from the history. It would be much better to make it a Sageuk fantasy romance of a fictional king like Moon that embraces the sun 해를 품은 달 (2012 MBC).

In other words, Queen for 7 days (2017) is not for Sageuk nerds but for romance fangirls. I think it is a well-made romance. Enjoy it.
