This drama is based on 1999-2000 MBC drama series “Hur Jun”. Because of the similarities between the two main characters of the show, “Hur Jun” has often been called as male version of “Dae Jang Geum”.

The story is set in Joseon Korea, primarily during the reign of Seonjo. The story covers a time that is approximately 50 years after the death of Dae Jang Geum (the reputed first female doctor of Joseon Korea). It depicts the dramatic life of historical figure Heo Joon who wrote the oriental medical textbook “Donguibogam” and became physician for King Seonjo. Kim Joo Hyuk will plays Heo Joon in this drama.

Yoo Ui Tae (Baek Yoon Shik) plays Heo Jun’s mentor who is the single greatest influence in his life. Meanwhile, Ye jin Ah (Park Jin Hee) plays a lady who lost her parents at a young age but was raised by Yoo Ui Tae, and grows up learning medicine from him as well. She eventually becomes a royal nurse and works alongside Heo Jun and falls in love with him. Yoo Do Ji (Nam Goong Min) will plays Yoo Ui Tae’s son.

    I suppose this is the best drama for the year 2013 (well, as far as I have watched). The story line is good and the performance of the lead characters are remarkable. The phasing is not boring considering I’ve already watched the previous Hur Jun and I am quite familiar with the flow of the story. The director and the script writer are commendable. Two thumbs up for all the effort. Keep it up.

    It’ just a sad to know that this drama did not get a high rating.

    The extraordinary drama ended on Wednesday 29th October 2014. For almost a year I was at home dot at 7.00PM. A fantastic serial to watch with excellent dubbing in Hindi. I have missed quite a few episodes initially because of ignorance. I am at pain that the glorious serial ended.It added value to my life.

    Request DD Bharati to restart telecasting some time in 2015, preferably from January itself with a bit of advertisement for wider communication .A must see for every student studying medicine as well as practicing doctors.Compared to serials aired these days, this is one of its kind that the entire family can watch together.

    Need to know where to find the all episode DVD. Any movie on the subject with english subtitle? Any book ?

    Hats off to DD Bharati.They deserve national award for their exploration of the subject, dubbing and telecasting the drama that produces far reaching impact on Indo Korean relationship. DD Bharati should invite the team of actors to India for some kind of felicitations

    Two guys are in love with Ye-Jin, Do-Ji and Lee Jung Myung. She barely talks and can only love Heo Joon even though he is married. I know that it is the part she has to play, but she never has any expressions on her face. The only time her face lights up is when she sees Heo Joon. She said she would do anything to be a nurse at the palace, but she didn’t know what she was signing up for. Jung Myung tried to tell her not to be a nurse, but he didn’t explain the reasons why she should not. Jung may have thought she was to delicate of a person to hear what is expected of a nurse.

    Heo’s wife has had a hard life, but Bless her, she never complains. She is cute.

    I am not sure if Jung Myung should have told Heo Joon that Hy-Jin was in love with him???? What can he do about it???? Leave his wife for her??? Now he has to be concerned about that.

    Those 2 guys that worked for Dr. Yu, Jang Swe and ? were let go because they were doing bad things, how did they get their-selves into the Palace to work??? And especially for creep Justice Heo.Suk?? And he and Do-Ji are hooking up to ruin Heo Joon. Unbelievable!!!

    Koo II-Seo is something else. Always has her mouth going, she doesn’t know how to shut up.

    Rose Says:

    Do Ji screws up, and then he wants everyone to help him get out of it. He went to China, but didn’t learn anything about how to become a better human being.

    Didn’t Do Ji’s mother and wife find out the reason he went to China??? Do Ji’s mother blames Heo Joon for all the bad luck her family is having, but she has no idea how disgusting and abrasive her son is. He went to China for having relations with a nurse. I thought every one knew that, but it seems Do Ji’s mother, his wife and the 2 girls that work for them didn’t hear that news.

    Heo Suk, Dr. Joon’s brother, is another evil disgusting man.

    Ryan Says:

    It was only a matter of time that love sick Ye Jin would get Dr. Heo in trouble. She made it obvious that she was in love with him.

    Interesting that the King can’t pick his own wife!!! Who wants to be King when you can’t do what you want, and have to put up and listen to those ministers, some who only care about their own gain.

    I thought the first Queen was pretty. But the concubine and her brother were a piece of work. Glad Dr. Yu finally decided to become a man who became honest towards the end of the show instead of trying everything he could to be at the top, idiot.

    I don’t care for Koo Il-Seo’d daughter who is in love with Dr. Heo son. Think he could do better.

    Second time I have seen this show, and thought it was very good.
