Insu, the Queen Mother (인수대비, Insudaebi, literally "Queen Insu") is a 2011 Korean series starring Chae Shi-ra, Ham Eun-jung, Kim Young-ho, Kim Mi-sook, Baek Sung-hyun and Jeon Hye-bin. It's loosely based on historical events.

During the fifteenth century, King Munjong of Joseon is ill. His son Danjong is too young to rule, and his brother Suyang is plotting to take the throne. A noblewoman named Han Jeong — better known as Queen Insu — marries Suyang's son Ui-gyeong and gets increasingly involved in the political plots in the palace. As time goes on she becomes part of a fierce power struggle between herself, her mother-in-law Queen Jeong-hui, and her daughter-in-law Queen Jeheon.

The series can be watched on Viki with English subtitles.
