Moon Embracing the Sun

A beautiful love story between Crown Prince Lee Hwon (Kim Soo-hyun) and Yeon-woo (Ha Ga-in), who are destined to be together but the course of true love never runs smoothly, especially for this couple that are driven apart by forces conspiring against them within the palace.

To prevent the Crown Prince from marrying his true love Yeon-wol and marry her relative, Bo-kyung instead, the Queen Dowager orders Nok-yeong to find a way to eliminate her.  Yeon-wol soon develops a strange illness and is expelled from the palace, losing her title as Crown Princess and shortly thereafter, her memories.  When she returns to the palace eight years later, it is as as Shaman Wol, appointed to assist the King with his “illness”.  Being at the palace helps trigger her lost memories and she soon realises she is back in her rightful place – at her true love’s side.
