The story of a beautiful queen, who has to give up her love to save the people. A biopic of Queen Seondeok, who was born a princess and later became the ruler of Silla, leaving behind many brilliant achievements.
loved this!! I think this was the only series wherein I liked all the characters even the antagonists!! Almost all of the main characters were so smart and wise that it was so entertaining to watch their political wars and power struggles especially Deokman's and Mishil's fight for the throne. At first, I didn't like the character of Deokman but as the story progressed, I found myself admiring her and cheering for read moreher success.
I only have two complaints for this drama though; first was the romance side of it. I didn't really like the characters that were paired with her. I didn't hate them, I just found myself rooting for an alcheon x deokman pairing all throughout even though I very well knew that it wouldn't happen. Hehe... Anyway, I'm just in the minority so you might actually like the love story part of it since most people do. :)
My 2nd complaint was the ending. I just think that they could have ended it better. I know the number of episodes was actually extended from its original plan but somehow the ending felt a little rushed and it seemed like there were missing scenes that should have been shown.
However, all in all, I think this was a great historical drama that left a deep impression on me. Plus, the soundtrack is good! It added to the tension and excitement of the drama!
unforgetable, Just love this drama...I really liked the child's acting who played for the role of deokman..and i really liked the character of mishil (My fav character) but no doubt each and every actor/actress was amazing,62 episode seems boring?? No not at all, every episode captures your heart and make you watch more and more..even i have downloaded all episodes and whenever i get bored i just play it and enjoy it.Just read morehoping for some new drama like that..
They both have: smart female protagonists who dress up as men in the beginning of the story; intricate planning and court intrigue as they battle their way to the top; multiple love interests; etc.
Empress Ki is a much better fighter than Queen Seon Duk as an individual, but Seon Duk was up against a more intelligent foe and had some brilliant planning.
While everyone cheers in their respective guild, I was cheering for BIdam of nameless guild not because I pity him, its because he's awesome..That first step,its like he's saying "Im the dark horse and I will kick your ass". ! And I like his dark feels, its like jedi force feel.:) That awesome fighting skill.. hmmm.. he's very complicated character. dont' know what he really thinks..
I'm at episode 19 now, and so far, I do like the drama, but I'm not very impressed. The actors are awesome though. But after what happened at episode 18 (nope, no spoilers) maybe the story will get more interesting for me.
I'm only at ep 9 but I'm so irritated at something... I know this is dramaland, but STILL damn it, I really feel the need to address this, not really a spoiler but read at your own risk: So, she grows up in the middle of a group of boys as a girl disguised as a boy... her chest grows, she gets her period every month, her voice doesn't break, she has to sneak to thebathroom and to have baths... FOR YEARS... and no one ever notices? Never? Ever? HOW? lol
Didn't Yushin notice, but he just kept it a secret that he knew?
I can't remember properly because I'm so far into the drama now lol but I get what you mean, I found half stupid and half entertaining with the fact tbh.
Is this based on the real biopic of Queen Seon Duk? I mean being abandoned and she had to go through hardship plus being a Hwarang? If it's a true story, then this Queen is beyond amazing. Sorry i have no knowledge about history of Korea
I'm on episode 30 right now. i didn't expect to say this but...overrated! (so far, hopefully it gets better).
There's so many characters who look the same so it's kind of confusing. Deokman, for instance, looks more like Mishil than she does her own mother.
