This high octane, quick paced historical saga will leave you on the edge of your seat. I watched it years ago when it debuted on television, and it seized my attention each week. Empress Cheonchu's rise to power was laden with hardship and many trials which emboldened her on to become Goryeo's premier empress. Her devotion to the two loves of her life showed a softer side to her otherwise brusque persona. Her obsession to build a strong Goryeo through military might and terrtitory expansion strengthened her position and resolve by keeping her enemies at bay. Her accomplishments were vast, as well as the pain and loss she endured to see her vision become reality. This saga has all the elements you look for in a historical drama; suspense, love, passion, intrigue, treachery, and betrayl. So sit back and relax and enjoy this cornucopia of excitement.
