Bridal Mask/Gaksital (korean drama)

Gaksital is a famous manhwa set in the 1930s, during the Japanese occupation. The hero, Lee Kang-to, is known as 'Gaksital' because he wears a mask to hide his face — one of those traditional play masks, specifically the rosy-cheeked one reserved for the female role, aka the bride. He's an unassuming young man in real life, but when he dons his superhero mask, he fights injustice and rights wrongs during one of the darkest periods of Korea's history.
i wasn't sure whether to watch this or not as it was a confirmed given that there was going to be much angst. and it didn't disappoint me in that area. there was enough angst to last me a lifetime. i'm going to be watching more light hearted dramas for a while now.
the story was so realistic, the osts are all so great, acting was fabulous. there were some really heart wrenching moments, sighh i'm writing this jus after i finished watching this, so i don't think i'm going to be able to say much.
only thing i can say is, this is a definite yes from me, i highly recommend it, it has everything from action to romance to comedy. you can just google every episode and find them online. i watched most of the episodes on epdrama and youtube. here are two of my favourite osts. enjoy!!!
