If you like a historical drama then this may be for you. Moon that Embraces the Sun is different story that is made for a younger crowd but still a good story. Great acting and visuals.

Both male protagonists have lost their Crown Princess at the beginning of the drama, there is no time travel, but it is an historical romance

- Amnesia, though the genders are switched.
- The crown prince falls for a common/poor girl.
- The crown prince remains loyal to his childhood love and does not consummate their marriage to the crown princess.
- Both crown princes have enemies within the palace plotting to take them down.
- Both crown princes have a certain wit to them / really intelligent / not dumb.

They are both really good drama. You will learn how to forgive and love the people around you. I highly recommend it.

For those who can't get enough of their Kim Soo Hyun fix. This is one of his previous drama which is worth watching.

Both are romance historical dramas with happy endings. Similar part of plots - evil girl steals identity of the good girl and the main character keeps looking for her.

Both are historical dramas and they were centered around the royal family. They also contained a story in which the king's wife was jealous of the king's love towards another girl. They also had cute and funny, romantic moments.

Both are historical dramas set in the joseon era with fantasy elements (more so in moon sun than rebel). Both have the same vibe of sincere love, fight against corruption. But while The Moon that Embraces the Sun centers around the royals and nobles, rebel is more down to earth with story revolving around the normal folk aspiring to make a change. I love both dramas but feel Rebel has that something special that brings authenticity to it that I have yet to find in any other historical drama (that I've seen).

Both dramas about dark magic and also a historical drama also same actress acting as evil queen mother.

both are about kids that fall in love and are separated because of an "evil" family member (father/grandmother) to meet again after a long time when they got old.. also some young actors are the same (Yeo Jin Goo, Kim So Hyun) and I think both are great dramas with a very sad story :)
