It hit me tonight as I was watching The Great King Sejong on the telly tonight (up to episode 16, but alas, it only shows on the weekends) how much it resembles the whole Eleanor/Henry II and their sons in some respects. Much more complicated, and based on actual history to boot.
King of Korea has a wife who's politically meddling, four legitimate sons -- eldest is a hotheaded braggart with an itch for war, second son is a pacifist without a political bone in his head, third son is the brains of the outfit, with a quickly growing sense of politics, and the youngest is too young to be much trouble yet. Then there's the former king, current king's brother, who has a concubine with the hots for the eldest son, along with a host of other complications -- including an illegitimate son with a mother who wants power very badly. Great fun to watch, night battles, lots and lots of gorgeous costumes, and a very different mindset. These folks are excruciatingly polite while verbally ripping each other to shreds.
