What is the plot of Under the Queen’s Umbrella?
Soompi claims that the plot of Under the Queen’s Umbrella centers around a group of troublesome princes who are about to assume the title of legitimate crown princes and cause a slew of problems for the royal family. Their mother Im Hwa Ryeong is a powerful monarch’s spouse. She does not, however, exude an air of elegance and grace; rather, she is a prickly, sensitive, and irritated queen. Everyone continued to upset her, so she felt more at ease. She is a queen who has been heard swearing and occasionally swallows her pride! She faces challenges every day of her life, but she keeps going because she cares about her children.
