1884 - Jejoongwon (kdrama 2010) An historically accurate portrayal of the fall of the Joseon Dynasty, starting with the failed Gaspin Coup and the subsequent tensions with Emperor Gojong, the Japanese and Chinese. Against this backdrop, the drama focuses on the introduction of Western medicine to Korea, challenging superstitions. At odds are the two male leads, one a butcher from the outcast class, the other a yangban (aristocrat) student. Excellent all around! ~ s.e.t.
