The LONG PILL:

While gender-bender sageuk dramas have been explored in the past, this series offered a fresh take on the plot since the FL has to survive and succeed in disguising herself while training to become a eunuch. In a segment of the society full of men during the Joseon era, she must exert her best efforts to avoid being caught. It also skilfully incorporated serious political discussions by giving it a light twist, since the ML concealed his plans and capabilities by doing various mischief.
Hard Pill to Swallow
There are other pairings that deserve more airtime in this drama, especially the bromance between the ML and the secondary leads.
