Hello and welcome!
Another drama that really quenched my thirst for sageuks. Shin Se Kyung in my opinion is the Queen of Sageuks, she has been in so many that she is just s great for every role and this is no different.
Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung
Cha Eun Woo
Shin Se Kyung
The story takes place at the beginning of the 19th century. Goo Hae-ryung is a noble lady who became a historian, who tries to fight gender stereotypes as her work is often looked down on. She meets Prince Yi Rim.
I feel like the best way to start this review is to say how much I ‘hate’ the ending aand yes I am using the word hate. The first 39 episodes were so amazing but the ending just fell flat for me. It very anticlimactic, I was really expecting a lot more, considering the fact that I have been enjoying this drama all along.
So Prince Dowon grew up in a secluded portion of the palace, his face only know to a few selected people. Then the crown prince decides to hold an examination for the first female historians in history who would record the inner working of the female palaces.
Anyways Prince Dowon a popular romance writer (using a secret name) encounters Goo Hae Ryung and their romance kindles from there.
There are a lot of very funny and also extremely sad scenes that got to me. To some extent I loved this drama. I don’t know if this is one I will recommend because of the flat ending but if you go into it with no expectations then you won’t be disappointed.

My husband and I are watching this show, and we love it! We’re only 6-7 episodes in, I love the costumes, the pacing, the characters, everything about it, it’s just a perfectly pleasant and enjoyable show! Sorry to hear the end is kinda anti-climactic, but also nice to know it’s a show that has a definitive end.
It has a definitive end and now I realized that my expectations were just too high 🤭🤭
