Title: Tamra, The Island / Tempted Again
No. of Episodes: 16
Broadcast network: MBC
*This is a period/historical drama
This drama which is based on a comic is unlike your other heavy sagueks/historical dramas. It’s lighter in plot, but still managed to carry the genre quite well.
Basically, the drama is about Beo Jin who met a castaway, William and hides him from the villagers to prevent him from being caught and punished. (Tamra is actually Jeju Island, where in the past no outsiders in allowed to come in and villagers are not allowed to leave). An exile gets send into the village and stays at Beo Jin’s house.
If you ignore the first 10 minutes of the first episode, the rest of the drama is really enjoyable to watch. I was reluctant to watch it at first as it looked like nonsense, but when I watched it, I’m glad I did because it was great.
This drama might not be a big budget heavy saguek but it’s definitely worth watching. 🙂
Anyone who loves saguek should watch it!
