This week we saw an intense new historical Korean drama, a creepy new DramaFever Mini, and a fascinating historical Korean film. Next week we can look forward to quite the variety with one new Chinese drama, one new Korean drama, a truly unique movie, and an adorable new variety show! Let's review!


1. The King's Face

Starring Seo In Guk , Shin Sung Rok and Jo Yoon Hee

Though Crown Prince Kwanghae (Seo In Gook) is the son of a concubine and has always had the question of birthright looming over his head, he is eventually deemed the approved successor to the throne. But shortly after his father's passing, the royal edict is destroyed, giving the Northern faction the opportunity to contest his rule. Without any piece of evidence that can confirm his legitimacy, Prince Kwanghae must rely on the only thing that connects him to the royal bloodline: his own face. When the Crown Prince's claim to the throne is threatened, he must rely on physiognomy — face reading — to foretell his future and prove that he is the one true king.

Following the suspected murder of King Munjong, Nae Kyung is summoned to use his powers of deduction to solve the conspiracy, one which may result in more deaths of royal proportions. Faced against treacherous Prince Sooyang (Lee Jung Jae), can he prove appearances can be deceiving?

4. Lady Daddy

Starring Lee Na Young and Kim Ji Suk

Ji Hyeon (Lee Na Young) is living the life of a beautiful and successful photographer, but none of it compares to finally realizing her dream as a post-operative transgender woman. But just when she’s finally settled into the life (and body) she was destined for, she’s reminded of her past life when a young boy named Yoo Bin (Kim Hee Su) claims Ji Hyeon is his father. On top of juggling her new beau Jun Seok (Kim Ji Seok), Ji Hyeon embarks on the greatest challenge of her life as a father-turned-mother.
