Sungkyunkwan Scandal

It started in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, a 2010 Korean historical drama depicting the life of the Sungkyunkwan scholars during the Joseon Era. The drama focused mainly on the life of the Four Sungkyunkwan Scholars called the Jalguem Quartet or what the fans called them "Joseon F4" and Yoo Ah In was one of them. He played the role of Moon Jae Shin, a moody and rebellious scholar.  It was the first time I saw Yoo Ah In and then and there he caught my fancy.

And the government calls you a hero?
