The K-drama depicts the life of Shin Saimdang, Korea’s most famous historical female figure, known for her art, poetry and calligraphy, and her love story with Lee Gyeom, played by Song. Lee stars in dual roles as a present-day Korean art history lecturer Seo Ji Yun and as Shin Saimdang. The drama also marks Lee’s comeback to the small screen, after nearly 13 years.

Saimdang will be broadcast simultaneously with Korea, and is to air every Wednesday and Thursday. The drama will be dubbed in both Mandarin and Bahasa Malay.


The Oh!K channel is available on Singtel TV as part of the Jingxuan and Inspirasi packs and on Singtel Cast in the Hallyu Pack.
