What would you do if the mere fact of your birth gives you no standing in society? Hong Gil Dong is the illegitimate son of nobleman Hong Ah Mo Gae and his concubine, which gives Gil Dong no legal standing in Joseon society. With no opportunities to do any legitimate work despite his brilliance, Hong Gil becomes the leader of a band of smugglers who steals from the rich to give to read morethe poor. Hong Gil’s contemporary, Lee Yoong, becomes the tyrannical King Yeonsangun who oppresses the lives of the common people. Hong Gil saves the life of Song Ga Ryeong, who becomes a young widow after her husband is killed by the king. Ga Ryeong dreams of getting revenge against the king at all costs. The king’s faithful consort is Jang Nok Soo, who secretly can’t forget her first love, Hong Gil. Can Hong Gil champion the rights of the common people on his path to becoming Joseon’s first revolutionary activist?

    Daebak! I only saw ep1 as soon as this aired because there were so many other good ongoing dramas back then that I couldn't keep up here. But as soon as the others ended and I had time for this, I couldn't stop watching and I caught up so fast. So good!

      It's going to be 30 episodes total. Not sure why Viki would say otherwise?

    Episode 16: if you want to know the story about Chae Hwa and Goo Chun, go watch King's Daughter Soo Baek Hyang :)

      Dong Yi, Princess man(first 4 episodes are quite boring though but one of the best), Deep rooted tree.

      All in all the best sageuk writer is Kim Young-Hyun. She wrote Jewel in the palace, tree with deep roots, Seondeok, SFD..all great dramas.

      I also liked Iljimae (with Lee Jun Ki) and Warrior Baek Dong Soo. There are a lot of great martial arts scenes :)

    Is the sister now Jung Da Bin or the other girl that wants to get close to Noksoo? I don't get which one it is.. and JDB isn't credited or anything, the sister's actor is unknown both here and asianwiki.

      I'm pretty sure it's intentional that we don't know for sure quite yet. Usually kdramas are pretty good at making that we know things that they want us to know ;)
