10 Best Historical Dramas

By in News posted Oct September 27th, 2014 No comments
10 BEST HISTORICAL DRAMAS
Historical dramas run the gamut from comedy to brutality, sometimes all in the same drama! Counter to the normal K-Drama, a historical drama can actually provide a little bit of education. While I won"t pretend that "The Night Watchman" or "Book of the House of Gu" is real, they do have as their backdrop a real period in history, which can provide an interest in learning more about that era. They can also provide a rich visual feast and show you things you simply won"t see anymore. Whatever the reasons, the historical drama is an important K-drama staple. Here are my picks for the 10 best!




CHUNO
Pure guilty pleasure, not unlike the barbarian movies of the 1980s. "Chuno" is about a Joseon-era slave hunter who finds and recaptures slaves because of a slave that burnt his house down, killing his family
