This drama is based on 1999-2000 MBC drama series “Hur Jun”. Because of the similarities between the two main characters of the show, “Hur Jun” has often been called as male version of “Dae Jang Geum”.
The story is set in Joseon Korea, primarily during the reign of Seonjo. The story covers a time that is approximately 50 years after the death of Dae Jang Geum (the reputed first female doctor of Joseon Korea). It depicts the dramatic life of historical figure Heo Joon who wrote the oriental medical textbook “Donguibogam” and became physician for King Seonjo. Kim Joo Hyuk will plays Heo Joon in this drama.
Yoo Ui Tae (Baek Yoon Shik) plays Heo Jun’s mentor who is the single greatest influence in his life. Meanwhile, Ye jin Ah (Park Jin Hee) plays a lady who lost her parents at a young age but was raised by Yoo Ui Tae, and grows up learning medicine from him as well. She eventually becomes a royal nurse and works alongside Heo Jun and falls in love with him. Yoo Do Ji (Nam Goong Min) will plays Yoo Ui Tae’s son.
