Dan-Bi (Kim Seul-Gi) is a senior high school student. She has a special ability which allows her to transport to anywhere on rainy days. For her university entrance exam, Dan-Bi can’t deal with the pressure and runs off to a playground. Without knowing why, she goes into a puddle and finds herself transported to the Joseon period. There, she meets Lee Do (Yoon Doo-Joon). He is a young King of the Joseon period. Lee Do is in a difficult situation due to droughts and the spread of an epidemic.

Yoon Doo-joon – Lee Do
Wahh…i loved this tv movie! i wished this was an actual kdrama with 16 episodes so that i can savor the relationship between Lee do and Dan bi. What i loved most was not only the relationship between the two but also the friendship they shared. i thought they were the perfect match – to think a future king would listen to a high school student in the modern times. The movie focused on the past times and how Dan bi helped saved ancient joseon from drought using her high school math skills. if you think about it, we really have come a long way, technology is so advanced that a high school kid failing math can actually become a renowned and respected genius in Joseon. as for all time traveling shows, as much as we want them to have their happy ever after, it’s impossible so the next best thing is to see Lee Do lookalike in the modern world. I see what they did there, the guy at the bus scene was actually the lookalike but Danbi never noticed him. What could have been better? if the modern Lee Do actually had a crush on her before or will it be creepy if he was an actual descendant to Lee Do?
Kim Seulgi, as usual, is so charming and effective in her role as Danbi. And Doo joon has improved and looked so handsome.
I am too late to wish for a second season but i guess i can just rewatch this movie.
