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

      wasn't she a concubine only though?
      /but is that relevant anyway? If the son of that woman was a CP instead, it wouldn't be because of his merits but by birth too. And that issue was even addressed within a drama, when San called two 'trainees' for not earning their positions but getting it because they came from an influential families.

      The one that was shoved aside was the concubine. She was the queen.

    I'm already loosing interest in the political bits. I realised now we don't have that many parties but many episodes to fill and the intrigue so far is borderline frustrating. The king will go down soon for the title to make any sense, won't he? The interactions between main three are still interesting though and looks like things are escalating quickly from the next week's preview.
    Don't scroll comments on myasiantv. I spoiled myself with the book's ending (but it may end differently anyway).

    /Forgot to add: 2nd female lead appeared this week and she's likeable so far. Both she and Rin are so cute and pitiful together.

    Even after watching 4 episodes, I can't seem to find interest in this drama... It's not about the acting, the story lacks originality and depth for me, should I continue?

      I'm really liking the story,but that's me,I would say for you to watch the next two episodes to be 100% sure that you want to drop,but If you're not enjoying I don't think you should force yourself.

    Just watched 5/6 and the story gets more exciting as San meets her mother's killer and Won is being framed by evil political competitors.

    Shipping Eun San & Wang Rin so hard. Wang Won feels so "soft", not manly, sorry. So far it is beauty ^^

      yes, I think it's lame that she's starting to feel nervous around the prince. I mean, I understand her feelings for the prince, but she should be caught between the two, at least. Rin has done a lot for her safety. I wonder if she'll be moved by that in the future. Won has too, but in her back, she doesn't even know xD basically, she's liking the guy just because he's funny xD

    Three minutes into episode one I loved it. By the end of the episode I was hooked.

    There we go again, falling for the second lead once more. Drama life can be really annoying sometimes. I'll try not to have high hopes; I'm simply counting on the developers to let the second lead live and find his happy place.

    I like getting to know Yoona's acting ability. I also like the feel of the drama it looks very authentic for that time period...pretty, but not too pretty, feels like it was filmed during that actual time.

    I am a SNSD fan and I always try Yoona's dramas bugt never finish it bc her acting feels awkward to watch but let me tell you that I swear I can feel her sincerity in this role I only watched a bit but her acting improved so much!

    I like historical dramas and all but I feel like many kdrama historicals these days aren't as good as they used to be but this one feels like quality I hope it doesn't disappoint me midway like most do

      Oh you didn't finish K2, she was not awkward in K2 at all. If you did, where did you think she was awkward? I binge through the show but she was stable from start to end. I thought PM & I was pretty good too when I watch it a while back. Didn't see thing else earlier from her.
