Synopsis for Doctor Elise: The Royal Lady with the Lamp
Doctor Song Jihyun is considered a prodigy among Korean surgeons, known for her ability to save patients regardless of their condition. In her past life as Elise de Clorance, the impolite wife of the Emperor, her jealousy and greed led to the loss of her loved ones and, ultimately, death. Therefore, she vowed to save lives instead of destroying them.
After a fatal plane crash, Elise finds herself back in her old body. With her prior knowledge of modern medicine and now the chance to right her wrongs, she is determined to contribute to the empire as a doctor in this life. But will Elise be able to prevent her betrothal to Prince Linden of Romanoff, the man she had loved to the point of her own death?
