This drama is 100% politics but I loved every minute of it. It's a tragic memoir of the Imjin war. I loved Ryu Seong Ryung & Lee Soon Shin - they were my favorites on this drama (and their close companions). I liked Gwanghae during the first half but by the second half I was disappointed with his actions... :/
A great drama however, if you don't mind watching one that has read more zero romance. I cried a few times while watching it and cried at the end too :'( It's more sad b/c you basically see history take place before your eyes :'(

This drama follows the writings left by Ryu Seong Ryung about the Imjin War that he titled 'Jing Bi Rok' - and we watch this unfold before our eyes, the invasion of the Japanese army, the fights in the court, the actions of King Seonjo as he tries to hold onto his power and suspects everyone. The righteous leading of Ryu Seong Ryung & his followers, the Bravery & Heart of Lee Soon Shin, the anger of Prince Gwanghae, the secret "peace talks" between Wae & Ming, the deception of the envoys, the patriotic spirits of the Righteous armies, the punishment brought out by Seonjo b/c of his fear of praise being taken away from him....the Japanese internal struggle with each other, and Toyotomi's crazy greed for power.

Ryu Seong Ryung is a character I admired throughout the entire drama & I respected anyone who followed him & believed in him. Lee Soon Shin a man who no matter who asked what of him would only do what he felt was right - he never brought harm to his men. He was upright, brave, unyielding and strong of heart - another man to be greatly admired - without him who knows what would have happened in history... I loved his friendship with Ryu Seong Ryung ^^ Both of these men are so brave - they go so well together - definitely the best of friends <3 While watching King Seonjo all I could do was shake my head at his childish, and petty ways.... and there were several other great characters throughout the drama :)

Actors I have to give a shoutout to:
~ Kim Sang Joon (Ryu Seong Ryung), Kim Suk Hoon (Lee Soon Shin), Kim Tae Woo (King Seonjo), Jung Tae Woo (Cheon Ri), Choi Chul Ho (Lee Hang Bok), Noh Young Hak (Prince Gwanghae), Lee Kwan Hoon (Shin Myeong Chul), Nam Sung Jin (Lee Deok Hyeong), & Jeon Kwang Jin (Song Hee Rib) ~

I for one would re-watch this drama if time allowed. If you like historicals - especially factual based historicals then you should enjoy this one as we watch history unfold.

The only OST I remember is just an instrumental that came on at the beginning and during the drama - nothing spectacular but it fit very well with this drama.

    So apparently Darksmurfsub is now charging money for the subs :'( So I can't download subs from them anymore unless I pay... sucks... has anyone paid them? and does it make you pay for each subtitle or once you pay they stop asking for money?... This is the only site I found that even has subs available for this drama... I would be nice if someone had them uploaded to subscene...

    For those with AppleTV, it is now there under KorTV. They added KBS and it is there.

      dramacool has a huge selection, but their u/l videos are usually of lesser quality than other sites … so, I use them only if I am desperate to watch a drama which is only available there. Thanks.

      Some are. Some of videos of various quality. But their selection of full videos (not parts) is great! Especially with Japanese and Chinese dramas!

      Hmm they used to have it on subscene but it appears to be gone. However there's ann app called dramania (for android) and it has the whole show hard-subbed :) I'm only on ep 10 but i recommend it!

      I had it not so long time ago on my phone, but recently it stopped working for me - I saw new episodes but then I clicked on them, I saw no video... :/ Dramania used to be on google store but now it's gone.
      It is still updated? It is really working for you? Can you help me/us to find working version? ;)

      Dramania can be downloaded on a separate site (mobi24.net), however after checking the episodes are now gone from there as well :/ I have 10 eps downloaded so I could try and upload them somewhere but idk how to get my hands on the rest..
