Production Credits


  • At the press event, co-scriptwriter Jung Kyung Soon revealed that while the inspiration for the drama came from Empress Ki, creative liberties were taken with the heroine, whose name, Ki Seung Nyang, is fictional.
  • Joo Jin Mo was initially slated to play the historical King Chunghye of Goryeo, but controversy over fictional liberties being taken with the historical figure resulted in the decision to nix the initial hero for a fictional Goryeo king instead.--Source
