This season’s internationale world trip heads to the Joseon Kingdom (modern-day Korea) in the late 19th century.
In part one of two, we meet the teenage girl (name unknown; I explain why in this episode) chosen to marry the teen Emperor because she had few connections and seemed easy to manipulate. AU CONTRAIRE, the woman known as Queen Min quickly proved herself to be more capable than anyone expected, least of all her arch-enemy, her father-in-law.
Reading recommendation: The Silence of Bones by June Hur
