Synopsis

Deokman (Queen Seondeok’s childhood name) was born as Princess Cheonmyeong’s twin and a member of the Silla royal family, but a prophecy leads to her abandonment as a baby. She was later brought back to the Silla place, where she joined forces with her twin sister to oppose Seju Mi-shil, a royal concubine, court lady and high ranking official second to the King who wanted to seize power. Mi-shil devised sinister plans to have the two Silla princesses exiled from the kingdom. In a secretive battle she assassinated Princess Cheonmyeong, but Princess Deokman shrewdly enlisted the help of General Kim Yushin and eliminated Mi-shil, who had been planning to conduct a coup d’état. After that, Princess Deokman thus became the first female ruler of the Silla kingdom as Queen Seondeok.

Production

It was filmed on location at MBC Dramia located at Cheoin-gu, Yongin-si in Gyeonggi-do Province. Where other historical dramas such as Dong Yi, The Moon Embracing the Sun and Jumong were also filmed.[13]

Trivia

The series adopted a significant artistic license with regards to the portrayal of historical events so as to accommodate the dramatic storyline. Notably, the reign of King Jinpyeong was compressed by over two decades such that in the series, Queen Seondeok was born within a year of his coronation. Accordingly, the preceding King Jinheung’s reign was extended by a similar period, with him being depicted as an elderly man at his death. This allowed for Lady Mishil and other prominent figures during Jinheung’s reign to be involved in events concerning the Queen during her time as Royal Princess.
