Queen In-hyun's Man (also known as Queen and I) is a 2012 historical-fantasy Korean drama which depicts the story of ancient scholar, Kim Boong Do (Ji Hyun Woo) who time-travels into the future and meets present day budding actress, Choi Hee Jin (Yoo In Na from Secret Garden, Greatest Love and Arang).
During the Joseon era sometime year 1694, noble-born Kim Boong Do takes upon himself to support the reinstatement of Queen In Hyun (Kim Hae In from Arang), who was deposed and replaced by Lady Jang (Choi Woo Ri), the concubine of King Sukjong (Seo Woo Jin). After having preventing an assignation plot against Queen In Hyun, Boong Do earned the ire of Minister Min Ahm (Uhm Hyo Sup from Silenced), who then orders his men to kill Boong Do. Incidentally, household servant Yoon Wol (Jin Ye Sol from 49 Days, Temptation of an Angel) holds unrequited love towards her master Boong Do and gives him a talisman to protect his life.
Year 2012, modern-day Seoul, amateur actress Choi Hee Jin receives a much-awaited career break in an upcoming historical drama “New Jang Heebin” where she is set to portray the role of Queen In Hyun. Unfortunately, she casts alongside her much-dreaded arrogant ex-boyfriend and celebrated playboy Hallyu star, Han Dong Min (Kim Jin Woo) and the condescending popular actress, Yoon Na Jung (Park Young Rin).
Back in the Joseon period, Minister Min Ahm’s co-conspirators attacked Boong Do but the talisman from Yoon Wol miraculously teleports Boong Do to present day Seoul, where he meets Jee Jin whom he initially finds absurd for misrepresenting herself as Queen In Hyun. Soon Boong Do and Jee Jin develop a friendship as Hee Jin helps Boong Dok in knowing about the key events in Joseon, thus giving him the opportunity to change unfavorable events each time he travels back to Joseon period. In the process of working together to tweak history, Boong Do and Jee Jin falls in love but encounters the challenges of maintaining a relationship separated by 300 years.
During a special fan meeting to celebrate the ending of Queen In-hyun's Man, Ji Hyun Woo made a surprise public declaration of love for his co-star, Yoo In Na. Eleven days later, In Ha confirmed their relationship on her radio show.
