56. Queen In Hyun's Man 인현왕후의 남자 (2012) Korean

Ji Hyun Woo, Yoo In Na, Kim Jin Woo, Ga Deuk Hi

Drama Rating: 7/10     Neck Score: A

One of the best fusion sageuks and time traveling type deals I've seen.  He's a scholar from Joseon times trying to restore Queen In Hyun to the throne and every time he "dies" he is transported to modern times where he meets an actress playing Queen In Hyun in a sageuk.  But every time he goes back and forth the time line is different, with different changes and memories and things getting messed up.  It's really cool.  Also, Ji Hyun Woo is hot.  I didn't think so at first, but he definitely grows on you.  His character is way hotter than him in this.  Also, this couple dated for a while because their chemistry was so good, but that didn't last through his military service.  Anyways, it's got a very intricate plot, with lots of different twist that can be taken because of the whole time travel thing.  And some very clever humor as well.  It does get cheesy in spots, but how else are you supposed to resolve something like this?  A bit of cheese is good now and then, and this one is really good.
