Hwarang (2016-2017)

Director: Yoon Sung-sik, Kim Yeong-jo
Writer: Park Eun-yeong
Stars: Park Seo-joon, Go A-ra, Park Hyung-sik

Revolves around an elite group of male youth called Hwarang who grow through passion and love in Seorabeol, the capital of the Kingdom of Silla.


Basically, Hwarang is a group of beautiful men that were supposed to look after Silla’s future. The plots also revolved around ‘half-breed siblings’ rejecting royal siblings.

Why see this drama?

  1. There are lots of beautiful men. They really are beautiful I felt insecure whenever they all get together.
  2. These beautiful men always bath together.
  3. They also love playing in the water–while doing the laundry, other work, and even when just resting by the creek–they tend to want to get wet whenever they are near a body of water.
  4. Of course, they have to have a k-pop performance–old Korea style boyband dance.
  5. Out of the three dramas I saw so far starring Park Seo-joon, I think this is the one where he performed best.
  6. I love the concept of the drama. The vibe/feel is similar with Love in the Moonlight. It’s light, cool, fashionable.
