Recently, I've been into historical period dramas, although of course more for the personal stories it has rather than the political happenings. ehhehe I only started watching this recently because i dislike having tragedies usually, i don't like crying. but despite that, i decided to watch it because it seemed to have a good romance story and a lot of action. and i'm glad that i decided to go for it cos i enjoyed it tremendously.
All the characters really got to me, the villainous and yet fatherly, suyang, the pitiful shin myeong, the cheerful jong, the proud princess gyung hye, the mischievous and later vengeful seung yu, the strong and kind se ryung, their maids, friends and everyone. the chemistry was amazing between the leads and even the supporting casts.
i teared up some parts, i swooned at some parts, i cussed at some parts but in the end, the drama kept me wanting for more and i was fully satisfied with how it ended although of course, there were some who were not satisfied.
this is the first show of the male lead that i'm watching and although at first, he was ok for me, he really grew on me. it's not everyone who can show their feelings well but he did it so well just through their eyes.
but i'm the type who just enjoys a drama while watching and don't think of any other things or think too deeply. it's just a drama anyway. but oh how wonderful this one was. my hunger for historical romance periods hasn't waned yet so i'll be watching some more and there are many on my list to watch.
this is a definite recommend from me, you can find it complete on youtube, although there are some parts that are missing or doesn't work. then you can just google the episodes, there are many links out there, one is dramacrazy, i view on their wat link. enjoy!!!
below are two of my favourite osts for the show. love it. enjoy!
