Okay, at long last I'm catching up on the timeline project. I've added all of the recent information that you guys were nice enough to post here; great stuff, all very helpful and very much appreciated. Next I'll add the latest information on the 2014 series, and after that I'll do a round of Google-searching to see if I can fill in any of the missing information where the orange font is used.
Well as of right now I've done about everything I can do with it for the time being. Info on 2014 and 2015 series is added, and I filled in a couple of missing morsels I found online. So consider the thing up-to-date for now.
I did find a possible new source for information. Somebody who can read Korean started a database for the wiki-d-addicts site:
He did include links to the sources he used. Some of them are either very meager or are no longer online. He found a Korean Wikipedia list of historicals; I can't read the thing but it doesn't look all that complete, which surprises me. Looks like he relied heavily on my list--which is fine since he credited it. Anyway, the database is unfinished but I'll go through it gradually and see if I can find anything that's missing here. And I'm citing him here in advance, in case I do find anything.
Wow. I really enjoyed reading this thread. Very impressive, Ajk. I'm a little intimidated to say anything here, but *in a very small voice* should "Bridal Mask" be added to the list? I only noticed that it was missing cuz it's on my "to watch" list.
Thanks animerika! Very glad to have any information that fills in any of the gaps. I couldn't find a synopsis for Mimang online so I added the series at the bottom of the timeline, in the more-information-needed category. Also I took a quick look at parts of the video that you were kind enough to share, and it looks like the Japanese colonial period so that's what I indicated, just as a guess.
Not only is Chae Si Ra a lead in that one (we know her here from Iron Empress), but one of the supporting players is the guy who's playing the lead in Jingbirok. So how about that for a coincidence. Anyway, I added your information; thanks again.

Done; added the information as best as I could to fit the format. Thanks again animerika...this is an ongoing project and it will probably never be perfect, but it continues to get better and as far as I know it's the best list of its kind that isn't written in Korean. Anything else you turn up, I'll be glad to get it.
