Here are just a choice of the real-life girlsthat experience been the topic of k-dramas. The list comprises two queens, a concubine, a calligrapher, a porcelain artist and a courtesan.
Hwang Jin Yi was once a courtesan or gisaeng. She changed intoprobably the mostmost renowned gisaengs of the Joseon Dynasty and lived throughout the reign of King Jungjong. She was beautiful, witty, wise and independent. She was known for her capacity at dancing, writing poetry and composing.

Some say she poisoned Queen In Hyun and laughed about it. After seeing a vision of his dead queen the King discovered her guffawing or so the queen's death. He killed her relatives and supporters. Altogether 1700 folks were killed and after that he decreed that a concubine may just never change into a royal consort. Jang has been portrayed through Lee Mi Sook, Kim Hye Soo,Lee So Yeon, Choi Woo Ri and most lately Kim Tae Hee.

Queen Seonduk governed Silla, one of the 3 Kingdoms of Korea from 632 to 647. She was the nation's twenty-seventh ruler and its first queen, also the momentfeminine ruler in East Asian history.
Under her reign, literature and art were championed yet her reign also integratedthe standard political infighting and violence. The queen has been portrayed by Lee Yo Won and Nam Ji Hyun in "Queen Seonduk" and Park Joo Mi and Hong Eun Hee in "The King's Dream."
"Empress KI" was also a true woman though the drama starring Ha Ji Won took liberties with the story.

She was the mummy of Biligtu Khan Ayushiridara and he did ultimately take the throne after much plotting and political maneuvering. After her son ascended the throne she went missing.
