a marvellous mini series (if that's the correct term)which enthralls right from the start and never lets go. In it's 36 or so hours, it seldom puts a foot wrong. The performances from some of the actors including female are hard to gauge in particular the two leading men, and the leading actressess ie Oh Yoon Ah as hye ap, who i nominate as the sexiest female read morecharacter I've seen in a long time, and we never even get to see her legs. Then there is Choi Jung Won as Princess Yeon, who is full of grace and serenity. But I have no doubt that the best performance comes from Jung Jin Young as king yuri. plaudits also to among others Kim Hye Ri as as Lady Mi Yoo (Yeo Jin's mother), and Han Jin Hee as King Daeso. yes, there are faults. There is plenty of fighting, but very little blood. At one stage, i thought a character who was being executed had survived. it looked like the excutioners blade had missed him. but no, he had been killed. when one of the main characters is killed in a rather inhumane way, and his friend has the oppurtunity to treat the instigator in like manner, he doesn't. perhaps it's to do with korean tv restrictions. the two leading male and female characters are not without fault. At one stage, she poisons someone, and he has a tendency at times to kill people who are no threat to him. perhaps it was just one person, i can't temember. i see those as positive aspects of the series. When one of the lead characters dies, my heart broke. and i cried like anthing. That is one of the great strenths of korean movies and tv dramas; the emotion they can get from you, and also how they involve you in the stories. highly recommonded without reservations
Where to start..... I loved it guys, you will all love this. Love, Politics, War, Action ITS ALL THERE! you will not be bored i guarantee that. One thing i can say for your sure is that Koreans know their history and i`ve developed a strong liking for it. The Actors were good but the Main leads were GREAT! Jung Jin Young as king yuri i give you nuff ratings ma boss, read morevery strong actor and have been a fan of you from watching Dong YI, keep it up. Princess Yeon YOUR NOW MY GIRL LOVE YOU. Do Jin nu seh a word mi boss u get standing ovation just keep it up. haven`t watched Jumong yet, but im now sure to watch it after seeing this. Anywayzzzzz enough of my glorification n ma native tongue go and watch it i highly recommend it.
I was expecting something good based on the comments but I experience more of a wtf is the thoughts behind all these extremely stupid decisions, the fighting scenes just goes to totally silly levels that is completely unbelievable. The acting is good but the characters leave much to be desired for.
a good drama , but too much tragadies that will make you think why did i watch this drama, if you have watched jumong then this is like a continuation part...but compared to jumong this drama is not that much impressive....
