Dong Yi

I'm wondering if any of you watched Dong Yi already? For people who do not know what I'm referring to, I'm talking about the Korean historical currently the HOTTEST drama in South Korea. It is a true-based story which revolves around one of King Sukjong's concubine's tragic life.

Storyline of Dong Yi
The drama typically is about a slave girl whose father is the chief of Sword Fraternity which is formed to protect the lower cast people. However, one of the minister from the South Faction accused the Sword Fraternity for killing the nobles. The main culprit turned out to be not the Sword Fraternity but the minister from the South Faction. This slave girl ended up losing her family and being chased by the police officers for being a criminal's daughter. She ended up working from a salve to a palace maid in the palace. During her stay at the palace, she met the King and ended up becoming one of his concubine.

I mentioned this because I'm going to write a song after watching finish this drama. I find the main character so pitiful but at the same time, she has a very strong personality. Such a sad story! If you are interested, you can go and watch this super nice drama!
