Why did I love it

I remember a time when I dreaded watching historical fiction. It was this drama that changed my perception of the historical genre. From its intense love story to the ugly power play. Many points in the drama made me question how we humans consider power as more important than relations. In all, the drama had a good mix of love, romance, power, and broken relations.
