Sungkyunkwan Scandal

Today is a drama review!

  • Title: Sungkyunkwan Scandal

  • Genre: Period, romance, comedy

  • Episodes: 20 

  • Synopsis: Sungkyunkwan Scandal is set in Sungkyunkwan University in the late Joseon era during the reign of King Jeongjo, revolving around the exploits and love stories of four youths. When her younger brother's illness worsens and their family is in danger of being evicted from their house for lack of money, Kim Yoon Hee enters the school under his name, disguised as a boy in her desperation to support him. There, she becomes friends with the intelligent and upright Lee Sun Joon, the playboy Goo Yong Ha and rebellious Moon Jae Shin. 

  • My Review: I really liked this drama. It was funny and cute and the historical aspects were interesting. Towards the middle, I fast-forwarded alot of it because of the political aspects. However, what made this drama special for me was the last five episodes.Kim Yoo Hee and Lee Sun Joon's relationship is so sweet and cute and I really loved watching them together! The best part of this drama is the characters! All of the characters are so interesting. You can't help, but fall in love with the main four (Goon Yong Ha and Moon Jae Shin were my favorites! haha). Despite how completely different they are from one another, they managed to build such a strong friendship. The supporting characters are also fun to watch as they were usually pretty funny. The political aspects of the drama bored me because I'm personally not interested in politics, but overall it is a very enjoyable drama.
