Need a break from Yanxi Palace? We found a Korean drama you might like. Historical K-drama Hundred Days My Prince (also known as 100 Days My Prince) follows the story of a crown prince (Lee Yool, acted by EXO’s Do Kyung Soo) who, due to palace politics, was attacked and lost his memory.
Overnight, he went from prince to pauper with no recollection of his past. Before the accident happened, he had ordered all singletons above the age of 20 to get married by the end of the month. In a twist of fate, he took on the identity of Won Deuk and was forced to marry a spinster from a village, Hong Shim (acted by Nam Ji Hyun), who happened to be his childhood sweetheart – whom he had no recollection of, obviously.

Spoiler alert: Hong Shim was the daughter of a noble whose was killed due to a power struggle. She managed to escape and has been living incognito ever since under a different identity. She also didn’t recognise him as Lee Yool because they had been separated for a long time.
Sounds complicated but interesting? You bet. The show has enjoyed high ratings since its premiere in South Korea, claiming top spot in ratings among all the other programmes shown in that timeslot.
