This drama series reunited actors Yoo Ah-in and Shin Se-kyung who previously starred together in the 2012 drama Fashion King.

TitleEdit

The Korean title of the series is in Old Korean. Nareushya is a native Korean word, which means nara oreuda (날아 오르다) or "soar up to the sky" in modern Korean. Thus the literal translation of the title is "six dragons soaring up to the sky" (여섯 마리의 용이 날아오르셔서).[8]

PlotEdit

The story tells about the foundation of the Joseon Dynasty in Korea and ambitions, success and conflicts of several real and fictional people, with a focus on the young prince Lee Bang Won.
