I think I’m too late to watch this Korean TV Series but I after watching Dong Yi and became interested in Korean history, I think I should watch Queen Seondeok too and get addicted to every episode. This Korean drama is about a story of a beautiful queen, who has to give up her love to save the people and thus, leaving behind many brilliant achievements. At first, Deokman feels in love with Kim Yushin but after she became a Queen she started to feel in love with Bidam. She tried to hide her feelings to Bidam but she can’t fight her feelings, so she agrees to marry Bidam with a condition that Bidam will abdicate the throne after she passes away. Queen Seondeok is also willing to abdicate the throne to Chun Chu and live with Bidam in Usan. But their love story was a tragic, they can’t be together because Bidam is already enemy of Silla, he died in-front of Queen Seondeok while Queen Seondeok died from heart disease after 3 days of his death.
