Joseon-era pottery was notable for its best quality and advanced baking method in the late 16th century. Baek Pa Seon, the woman of fire, was Joseon's first female potter and regarded as the dojo of Shintaro porcelain. Crown Prince Gwang Hae loved her deeply but had to let her go. This TV series depicts her early life in Joseon instead of Japan, where a shrine is dedicated to her.

Cast & Credits
it's about a girl who dream to be a ceramist but in her time no woman allowed to become one, so here we have a lot of struggling with some birth secret, a prince charming and some skillful childhood brother involved, well, nothing new, but with a lot of talented actors i expect more from this drama,the plot freeze at some point and trust me it's going nowhere, the characters have no development at all till the last ep, the relationships are worse, can u believe when ur childhood brother confess to you as a man and u never have the same feeling with him, the next day there will be no awkward moment?? they made it like nothing happen which i can't accept,
there are too many holes in this drama, first, jeongi's character, from a girl who knew nothing about making a ceramic suddenly being able to make the best one??
second, the prince, he was so brave and responsible as a child, but when he grew up all he can do is checking his father's mood, rather than think about his people he just focus on how to please him, and how can he always get fooled by his scheming brother?? first time, well, he's not prepared, second, he get caught off guard, third time?? he never learn huh?,
all the other characters are no help, no improvement in their character either,
this drama annoyed me so much, so i won't recommend it if you don't have time, but if you have so much time to spend you can watch it, it's all ur choice..
Story: As stated in the synopsis, the story revolves around Jung Yi, based on real life Baek Pa Seon, a fiery young woman who's life revolves around love ceramics, and getting herself into trouble, one way or another. Aside from a few slow episodes involving a lot of things about ceramics (which I personally liked as an artist) and a less than full-filling ending, the story unfolded with much anticipation and excitement.
Acting: Maybe I'm biased because I came into the drama to see more of Moon Geun Young because I adored her in Painter of The Wind, but I found myself loving the range of emotions that came across in all of the actors. I hadn't seen a drama with Kim Bum before but now I've started Padam Padam to see more of him. I may look into a drama with Lee Sang Yoon as well for his charming smile, but I digress. The supporting cast in many ways, were well beyond my expectations: expressing emotional qualities ranging from cold and detached to battered and desperate. I was most impressed Seo Hyun Jin as she portrait such a range of emotions in character and as an actress that her character Shim Hwa Ryung gave me chills.
Music: I enjoyed the music well enough, although I would have liked the vocal versions to be incorporated more often, and maybe a wider verity of songs in the soundtrack. It was generally appropriately timed for mood, but it didn't quite move me like the soundtrack of Painter of The Wind (can you tell I like that drama?).
Rewatch Value: I'm not one for rewatching dramas. But if a friend wanted to watch it with me, I'd at least watch a few episodes with them to get them into it.
Overall: 9/10 Not disappointing as a whole, and would most definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical dramas, art, or non-traditional gender roles. I just happen to like all three!
