Average Rating:       (out of 3 ratings)


The Goryeo era in the history of Korea was marked by turbulent and difficult relations with the Yuan Dynasty in China. It is during this time period that A Frozen Flower takes place, with the King (Ju Jin-mo) organizing a special group of royal guards given the name Kunryongwe. He appoints Hong Lim (Jo In-sung) as the leader of this group, and their relationship quickly becomes one of captivation and intensity. As this relationship develops the Queen (Song Ji-hyo) stands in the background, keeping her eyes on both the King and Hong Lim. With political pressures from the Yuan mounting due to the lack of an acceptable heir to the Goryeo throne the King must make a move. Making a brash and disagreeable choice the King secretly orders Hong Lim to sleep with the Queen so that an heir to the throne can be born. Now the King, Queen, and Hong Lim must deal with the aftermath of the creation of a love triangle that is complex, captivating, and often dangerous.
