Hwang Jin Yi is raised in a temple and lives with the monks but has always been in search of her birth mother. The monks wont tell her the truth. In one of her expedition, she sees the gisaengs dance and decides she wants to become one to learn the dances. She then discovers that her mother is herself gisaeng and her father is a noble man who rejected his paternity…

This drama is really well done. It is the true but fictionalized story of Hwang Jin Yi, the most famous gisaeng from Joseon Era, from her childhood up to the moment she becomes famous. She lived under the reign of King Jung Jong, 11th ruler of Joseon Dynasty. I think watching the movie Hwang Jin Yi, starring Song Hye Kyo, would be a good complement. I find her story quite sad though.
Beautiful hanbok, hair styling and ornaments all along… I loved the scene when Jin Yi performs the geommu on the sand bank in front of the mistress. Very nicely filmed… This drama gives the occasion to discover various traditional dances like geommu, geomgimu, hakmu, etc… Very good performances from Ha Ji Won, Kim Yeong Ae and Kim Bo Yeon. I also liked the funny gisaengs, Jeong Kyeong Sun and Song Yi Wu. I wish they would have lasted a little less longer on the first love part but overall great drama…
