Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: In the Edo era during the reign of the third shogun, a mysterious smallpox epidemic affects males only, causing the number of males to plummet to one-fourth of the population. The roles of males and females are reversed. Women run businesses and politics. A young girl takes the seat as the heir of the shogunate and becomes first female shogun. She is Tokugawa Iemitsu (Tabe Mikako). When Iemitsu turns 16, the pure-hearted Madenokoji Arikoto (Sakai Masato), who heads a temple, is threatened and forced to return to secular life. Together with his disciple Gyokuei (Tanaka Koki), he becomes one of the 3,000 handsome concubines that wait on the shogun in the inner palace.
It's Plot Caught My Eye...
I actually think that the whole female and male roles being switched sounds pretty interesting!! and the whole 3,000 handsome concubine thing sounds pretty nice to me!! I’m not really familiar with the cast, but hopefully they add to the cool plot. Idk, this one just popped out to me because i think that it would be cool to watch a drama on the edo era focused on strong women roles, rather than the warrior thing. OTL so when i get off of grounding for having a dirty room, i will def check this one out haha
