I’ve watched many Kdramas and many I’ve failed to feature. Trending series like One the Woman, which is now available in Netflix. There’s Mr. Queen which is equally very funny we’d burst in laughter non stop, rom-com I’m not a robot (one of my favorites), and list go on…
This new series- Under the Queen’s Umbrella (Korean: 슈룹) is an ongoing South Korean television series starring Kim Hye-soo, Kim Hae-sook and Choi Won-young. It premiered on tvN on October 15, 2022, and airs every Saturday and Sunday at 21:10 (KST). It is also be available for streaming on Netflix in selected regions.
My hubby (& Kdrama buddy) and I love period/historical dramas. They are remarkable, informative, beautiful portrayal of royal families and relay the life of Koreans under that era. This new series is somehow relatable, as a mom myself, raising children is the most difficult role in the world. The more for the queen during Joseon kingdom.
Under The Queen’s Umbrella is not the first Korean historical drama to focus on the precarious position of female royalty during the Joseon Dynasty, but it does emphasize the machinations that such uneven power systems provoked. Because most court women had no real power to affect change, some turned to duplicitous plots—from rumormongering to murder—to improve their station.Forbes
With new episodes released every week, you’re bound to cry, ache, laugh and worry for the queen and her sons, the grand princes.
