KBS2 began airing Queen for 7 Days last week, a new Wednesday-Thursday historical romance that will run for 20 episodes. The drama stars Park Min Young, Yeon Woo Jin, and Lee Dong Gun. It is based on the historical figures Queen Dangyeong and King Joongjong, and the story of how Lady Shin became queen, only to be expelled from her position seven days later.
The first two episodes offer plenty of back-story into the main characters and promise plenty of court drama and a possible tragic love-story. Of course, Queen for 7 Days is competing with an already impressive line-up of historical dramas, so will it survive the test? I hope so.
