Korean dramas sparked my interest in Korean history. After watching the Yi San series, which is based on the life of "the Royal Grandson," I wanted to learn more about the events leading to the death of Crown Prince Sado. My interest led me to this book. This valuable historical document has come down to us thanks to the memoirs of the wife of a crown prince in 18th century Korea.
This novel was written over an eleven-year period by Lady Hong, the wife of Prince Sado, to show her grandson, King Sunjo, that her family was not at fault for the death of Prince Sado. Although she does not outright say that it is King Yongjo's fault for Prince Sado's death, she certainly implies that it is the King's fault because of his inadequacy as a father.

Memoirs of a Korean Queen provides a rare example of writing by a Korean woman during this period, and an equally rare view of her life and the lives of those around her. Two hundred years later, Lady Hong shines through as a thoughtful, intelligent woman whose life was circumscribed by the custom, culture, and Confucianism of her time-the same custom, culture, and religion that provided her with the strength to endure.
