Both historical romance dramas by the same writer. But Faith involves time-travel.
Recommended by scarletlover1
Very similar in all aspects:
- Goryeo under Yuan rule
- Yuan Prince/King
- Love rivalry between 2 male leads
- Physically strong female lead that gradually becomes entangled in romance and politics
- Serious plot

    Rhis is the only drama that I like yoona's acting. HJH is a very versatile actor, from villain to 2nd male lead. He suits being protagonist and antagonist. But hopefully he'll land a lead role soon. ISW on rhe orher hand os very charming but i think the most developed character will be Wang Rin.

    This is the only MT drama i like from all 4.

    What if San doesn't end up with either of them? What if she dies? I wouldn't want that to happen but it is a possibility. That can be the big twist. Nobody gets the girl :( I really don't think San and Won will end up together. I wouldn't mind if they ended up together but he is a would be king so I doubt that San would actually become his wife/future queen or consort. I just want Rin and San to end up together, like really bad. This is like that chinese novel, where the girl is married to the guy but the king also falls in love with her and she does like the king but in a non-romantic way and loves her husband. The king wasn't a main lead but TKIL gives me this feeling that Won will try to keep San with him no matter what but San would only love Rin.

    And I would really love to see Won as a crazy, psychotic king like LDG from Seven Day Queen. If Won just becomes a predictable character with like longing for San and stuff, that would be really boring. I would love to see Im Si-wan act like a crazy king like he did in one of the previous episodes.

    Just make RinSan true and I'll be really happy after my heartbreak over Scarlet Heart/Moon Lovers.

    As always lmao at people who think she even has a possibilty to end up with the second lead, he is the second lead for a reason lol. I don't get why people watch for the second leads, the romance is always between the main leads.

      Well, if it follows the book it's based on, you might be in for a surprise...

    I'm sure the majority ships Rin, but if San really does end up with Rin, it would certainly not be a happy ending, especially given what has happened so far. Maybe the novel started differently, but based on the drama, Won and Rin's friendship and Rin's loyalty is too high + the fact that drama is really pushing for Won x San, so I can only see San ending up with Rin if something bad happens to Won, either he dies or is unable to be with San for whatever reason. This is actually very likely to happen considering how many enemies Won has. He's a pitiful main character and if he goes down, the drama probably will not end happily.

    I'm so attached to the characters in this drama that I only wish everyone is happy in the end, but I can't see a world where that's possible with Rin x San. Rin should've told Won sooner that he liked San if this were to become a healthy rivalry.

    My favorite thing about this is the focus on friendship, even though it's a bit one-sided right now, most (great) historical drama have very little of that. Rivals, or even brothers, usually start betraying/fighting each other right from the start.
