    Even after watching 4 episodes, I can't seem to find interest in this drama... It's not about the acting, the story lacks originality and depth for me, should I continue?

    Just watched 5/6 and the story gets more exciting as San meets her mother's killer and Won is being framed by evil political competitors.

    Shipping Eun San & Wang Rin so hard. Wang Won feels so "soft", not manly, sorry. So far it is beauty ^^

    Three minutes into episode one I loved it. By the end of the episode I was hooked.

    There we go again, falling for the second lead once more. Drama life can be really annoying sometimes. I'll try not to have high hopes; I'm simply counting on the developers to let the second lead live and find his happy place.

    I like getting to know Yoona's acting ability. I also like the feel of the drama it looks very authentic for that time period...pretty, but not too pretty, feels like it was filmed during that actual time.

    I am a SNSD fan and I always try Yoona's dramas bugt never finish it bc her acting feels awkward to watch but let me tell you that I swear I can feel her sincerity in this role I only watched a bit but her acting improved so much!

    I like historical dramas and all but I feel like many kdrama historicals these days aren't as good as they used to be but this one feels like quality I hope it doesn't disappoint me midway like most do

      Oh you didn't finish K2, she was not awkward in K2 at all. If you did, where did you think she was awkward? I binge through the show but she was stable from start to end. I thought PM & I was pretty good too when I watch it a while back. Didn't see thing else earlier from her.

    I'm going to watch this because of Hong Jong Hyun! TBH I'm not a fan of Yoon Ah's acting so I need to prepare myself for this drama.

      I've seen some of her previous works and so far, I haven't been impressed. I'll give it another go mostly because I like HJH.

      I thought I was the only one considering just watching for HJH... though I think I'll wait for more episodes to air first

    Another annoying crown prince, I'm not even interested in the development of this character. What hooked me is the evil guy and the brother's scheme and Rin's situation.

    After a second look at the synopsis I can see where the confusion is coming from. It's not all fluff. Here's the least spoilery additional info I can come up with:
    Won's mother comes from Yuan, so he's not trusted as an heir to the throne and his father shuns him as a halfbreed (and fears him as a future rival). There's a strong opposition against him in the court too.
    He makes an impression on Rin, who befriends him despite his family's animosity towards the prince and stays as his bodyguard and close friend, helping him to sneak out the palace to observe common people. That leads them to witnessing a tragedy one day - here lies the connection with the girl and a root of a possible conflict.
    San is a daugther of a wealthy nobleman. Soon, a marriage ban will start, so other family plots a scheme to meet her and make her fall for them before it happens. They aren't afraid to spill blood. San manages to make it alive, but she has to live in hiding from now on, switching places with her maid (a rumour was spread she's terribly disfigured after the accident) and leaving the city. She stays in a remote place run by a freethinking fallen high official of the court, where she eventually meets Won and Rin years later.
    So yeah, there's more to her than just being beautiful and rich, appearing one day and having good time in their company.

      In the second episode (3-4 in the Network broadcast), Rin's Father tells him to befriends the prince.

      And yes, the Synopsis is a bit of vague, but after the synopsis of Suspicious Partner, i can expect everything.

      Hm, maybe you're right. I only remember scenes with his brother now. It could be useful for them to have an inside man, but for now Rin doesn't side with his family.

      Lol at SP. But apparently they reached amnesia part eventually, I just didn't stick for that long.
