Top 6 most charming portrayals of queens in Korean historical dramas

The following characters are the most gorgeous queens in some of the most famous Korean period dramas. 

Korean historical dramas not only make waves thanks to interesting and unique storylines, but also impress the viewers with iconic and stunning visuals of the cast when dressed up as Kings and Queens. The following queens are the most outstanding examples, who are guaranteed to capture the viewers’ hearts with their beauty and aura! 

1. Kim So Yong (Shin Hye Sun)

Shin Hye Sun must be the one-of-a-kind queen of Korean historical dramas because of her character’s unique and witty personality in “Mr. Queen”. Due to having her body possessed by the soul of modern-day chef Jang Bong Hwan (Choi Jin Hyuk), queen Kim So Yong (Shin Hye Sun) turns into a completely different person with a great sense of humor. Not only is she not afraid to “clap back” at King Cheoljong (Kim Jung Hyun), but she also has a passion for “flirting” with other women. 

2. Jang Ok Jung (Kim Tae Hee)

Although not achieving high ratings as expected, “Jang Ok Jung, Living by Love” still left many impressions on the audience, especially with the stunning appearance of Kim Tae Hee in the role of Jang Ok Jung. In addition to the captivating portrayal of a royal noble consort in the Joseon dynasty, Kim Tae Hee is also appreciated for her gorgeous beauty when wearing sophisticated designs of hanboks.

3. Kim Sun (Kim So Hyun)

Despite only having a special appearance in “Goblin”, the impact of Kim So Hyun’s role in the hit drama is no joke. She plays the young and beautiful queen Kim Sun from Kim Shin (Gong Yoo)’s past. Kim So Hyun’s character breaks many viewers’ hearts because she has to go through a sorrowful and tragic life.

4. Ki Seung Nyang (Ha Ji Won)

“Empress Ki” is one of Korea’s most well-known and high-quality historical dramas. Ha Ji Won‘s performance as Ki Seung Nyang, a woman caught in a love triangle with the Emperor of Mongol Empire and Wang Yo – the head of Goryeo dynasty, played a significant role in the drama’s success. Ha Ji Won expertly transformed herself into a beautiful, gorgeous, and powerful Empress. This is also one of the actress’s most memorable roles in her acting career.

5. Kim So Hye (Han So Hee)

Han So Hee once overshadowed the female lead Nam Ji Hyun in the historical drama “100 Days My Prince” as she was so beautiful. Han So Hee plays Kim So Hye, the wife of Crown Prince Lee Yool (D.O.), in the drama. Despite being more attractive than the female lead, Kim So Hye was neglected by her own husband as her character is only a supporting role.

6. Oh Sunny (Jang Nara) 

“The Last Empress” is set in a time when Korea was ruled by a constitutional monarchy. Jang Nara plays Oh Sunny, a musical actress who suddenly changed her life and became the Empress. Oh Sunny is not only beautiful, but she is also very smart, wily, and courageous in her attempt to overthrow the corrupt royal regime.
