“Bossam” in the Korean title refers to a customary remarriage procedure that took place during the Joseon period. At that time, a widow could not remarry. A single man or widower would kidnap the widow and marry her. Some of the kidnappings were agreed upon in advance and others were by force. This procedure was known as bossam.

  1. 1 : Lemon Says:

    Super excited. Cant wait this drama..

  2. 2 : sammie Says:

    Looks like this is going to be sweet and touching romance story.

    Actor Jung Il Woo ? Name sounds familiar. I wonder whether he’s Prince MyeongYang of Moon Embracing The Sun drama?

  3. 3 : Kaleem Ullah Says:

    Bossam: Steal the Fate Episode 2 With English Sub Online Video

  4. 4 : OK OK OK Says:

    So far at episode 2. Nice 🙂

  5. 5 : Cheorin Says:

    Why did the King refer to Princess Soo Kyung as Hwa In?
    What’s with that?

  6. 6 : AnCe Says:

    “…when Ba Woo kidnaps by mistake princess Soo Kyung, who was daughter of Gwanghae-gun and a blue widow.”
    what does “blue widow” mean?

  7. 7 : Cheorin Says:

    Good drama.

    I was never a fan of Jung Il Woo, but in this drama he is very good. Yuri and he are perfectly cast.

  8. 8 : Cheorin Says:

    So, how traumatic and devastating it is to find out your own father would throw you away for political gain.

    She can’t go with the brother-in-law, his family won’t take her back. They will kill her. They’ve already sent out assassins to find and kill her.

    She’s obviously destined to be with Ba Woo and Cha Dol.

    Looking forward to the next episode.

  9. 9 : Cheorin Says:

    Very nice.
    Up to episode 8, just great.

  10. 10 : Cheorin Says:

    Ba Wu’s real name is Kim Dae Seok. His grandfather was the father-in-law of the previous king, Seon Jo. So, he was a noble whose family (the men) perished by public execution presumably at the behest of the current king the father of Princess Soo Kyung whom everyone refers to as Hwa In. Yea, confusing to me too.

    The king’s efforts to hold on to power is making him a touch deranged. He was willing to sacrifice his daughter’s life to advance his political power which is being undermined by Lee Yi Chum father-in-law to the princess.

  11. 11 : YDG Says:

    Very nice and entertaining. The male child actor playing Cha Dol is so adorable and acts so well. Must watch drama.

  12. 12 : Charles Y. Oishi Says:

    Ep 11. 1:08:19, “rebars” that are commonly used for construction are being used for torturing instruments. “Rebars” were used during that Joseon era? ha-ha

  13. 13 : mn2021 Says:

    atleast they make it 20 episodes, from 16. since for me, the romance plot is still lacking, and it already shows late when it’s already after episode8… in my opinion, its already lack of romance if it’s a total of 16eps, and the romance plot already shown when its still episode 8 above. they did not even shows there love on a mutual kiss in the plot. (in respect)

    #a true writter&director is a really talented if they really show their pinpoint on what plot they give.
    “historical romance.” for me, the romance plot is still lacking, although it’s already in episode 13….

  14. 14 : Cheorin Says:

    #13 I respectfully disagree given their respect and adherence to moral codes of conduct, a kiss happens when their commitment to each other is either formalised (marriage) or is deep enough to be akin to a conjugal union. Lets see how the kiss develops in the 2 episodes . . . lol!!

    We are used to our modern day morality which celebrates “lust”. However, the passion associated with lust dissipates sooner than the agreed-upon commitment to the conjugal union (marriage) as evidenced by the high divorce rate.

  15. 15 : Horizon Says:

    What is a blue widow ???

  16. 16 : mn2021 Says:

    my gosh, what will happen now, that cha deol mother is alive?

  17. 17 : AnCe Says:

    I asked that and no one answered, from what I understand in the drama…a “Blue Widow” seems to be a Bride who never consummated her marriage because her husband died. I’ve seen some of this “blue widow” in K-dramas mostly historical dramas…an example would be from My Love From Another Star…the first time Do Min Jun came to Earth.

  18. 18 : OK OK OK Says:

    Now at episode 16. Still very nice 🙂

  19. 19 : Horizon Says:

    @AnCe : oooh okay… thank you very much 🙏👍

  20. 20 : Tan Hui Ling Says:

    Okay .. I will watch it for these comment sound interesting
