During historical times, an elite group of handsome youths known as Hwarang were created by the Queen (Kim Jisoo) to protect her seat on the throne of Silla. Her son, Prince Sam Maekjong (Park Hyungsik), who little to anyone’s knowledge, is a Hwarang himself using the name Dwiji. The Hwarang – Moo Myung (Park Seojoon), Sam Maekjong, Soo Ho (Choi Minho), Ban Ryu (Do Jihan), Yeo Wool (Cho Yoonwoo), and Han Sung (Kim Taehyung – BTS’ V) – are trained in self-confidence, self-defense, and self-control throughout the drama. While being in Hwarang, Moo Myung’s side-mission was to impersonate Sun Woo, his best friend and the older brother of Ah Ro (Go Ara) – a young maiden who hasn’t seen her brother since she was little – requested by their father An Ji Gong (Choi Won Young) to protect Ah Ro from finding out the truth of what happened to her brother and to keep Moo Myung’s identity secret in order to stay in Silla. Watch how the love triangle between Ah-Ro and two handsome men unfolds. Who will get the girl? The cold prince, Maek Jong? Or the handsome Hwarang, Moo Myung?
