Firstly,for those who don't know,a Kisaeng is a e in late Joseon.Beautiful women who were also talented in dancing,singing & playing different musical instruments.Totally they were for entertainment of high ranking men.most of the times,Kisaengs were from low ranking & slaves.
And second,I have seen maybe more than 100 historical Kdramas...so some parts,some small parts may be inspired by them & seem familiar to you.Thanks for reading!
Third,Special thanks to Moon-Walker for the beautiful poster.
