We start to hear announcements for the Fall lineup of Korean dramas on Netflix as the Summer comes to an end. The Queen’s Umbrella, a historical drama starring Kim Hye Soo, is a highly anticipated k-drama series for fans. Here is everything we currently know about Netflix’s The Queen’s Umbrella season 1. Kim Hyung Shik is the director of the upcoming South Korean historical drama series The Queen’s Gambit, which has received international licencing.
What is The Queen’s Umbrella’s storyline?
The Queen’s Umbrella’s plot is thanks to Soompi:
There are some troublemakers in the palace who give the royal family nothing but headaches and who are about to become legitimate crown princes. Im Hwa Ryeong, their mother, is the spouse of a powerful king. She is, however, a prickly, sensitive, and irritable queen, as opposed to exuding an air of elegance and grace. She became more at ease as a result of everyone continuing to irritate her. She is a queen who occasionally swallows her pride and has even been heard swearing! She faces hardships every day of her life, but she perseveres because she loves her kids.
Who are The Queen’s Umbrella’s cast members?
Popular actress Kim Hye Soo has already appeared in two Netflix Originals, Hyena and Juvenile Justice, since making a comeback in Korean dramas. For The Queen’s Umbrella, Kim Hye Soo will star in the lead role of Queen Im Hwa Ryeong.

While Kim Eui Sung will be remembered for his time on the Netflix Original series Arthdal Chronicles, he will be remembered most for his role as Yong Suk, the extremely selfish COO of Stallion Express in the South Korean zombie-horror Train to Busan.
