This great historical drama about the stormy life story of Hur Jun, a legendary doctor of the Chosun Dynasty.
Huh Joon was an illegitimate child of the governor of Pyong Ahn Do (a region in Northern Korea) and spent his days acting as the leader of a smuggling ring. When caught, his father arranged for Huh Joon and his mother to leave for Kyung Sang Do (a region in Southern Korea). This read moreis where he met the reputable Dr. Yoo and discovered his talent and interest in medicine and healing people. Soon his life started to make a complete turn from his sordid past and he went on to become the emperor's physician.

i had high expectaion from this drama since it was made by the same team who made jewel in the palace. i was dissapointed big time. some episodes are so dragging to watch, worthy of fast forwarding. i skipped a lot of scenes, some sub plots didnt even help at all.

acting wise, all actors did great. the love story between the two main leads were not fully developed, its acceptables since read more its not a love story but more on the struggle of hur jun becoming a doctor.

compare to jewel in the palace (which i rewatched 3times), i dont see myself rewatching this ever.

im planning to see the 2013 version as soon as i find a link for it.

    I dropped this drama not because it was not good, but because I got tired of watching the same dumb AT&T ad before each "part." It's unfortunate that this drama is available at only a few websites where they upload each Episode in 3 or 4 Parts. The drama itself is quite good although some "fillers" since it's a 64-episode drama.

      how's that? I started watching Hwang Jinyi, but after 2 eps, I decided not to continue. The age difference between Ha Ji Won and Jang Geun Suk is too much for me, esp he's a Pretty Boy … too bad because I like Kim Jae Won … maybe someday go back.

      I think I seriously need a break from Dramas, esp K-dramas.

      lol I'm not a big Saeguk fan I really need to super be into it to actually go through the torture of watching it. i have quite a few on my plan to watch, but Korean historical drama tend to give me a headache lol found them complicated. But once in a while one of them will bite me and I can't stop watching it. Hwang Jinyi is in my PTW since I watched the movie, I wanted to see how different the drama is.
