I see that this doesn't have a review yet so here is one. I'll try not to make it long but I can't promise anything, so please bear with me or not whatevers I don't care... okay here I go!

Story- The plot is like any other historic drama; there is betrayal, political intrigue & war. But I guess this has a small twist, it is center around Gye Baek. On how read more all the secrets & lies of the royal court change Gye Baek's life; separating him from his love and turning him into a great general.

Acting/Cast- As for the cast they all did very well. I like all the actors however I'm very impress with the kid actors. Two adult actors stood out to me, one being Song Ji Hyo. I felt that she really became her character. The other person is Hyomin, even though she didn't appear often; the times she did she impress me especially in her big scene.

Music- The soundtrack was nice and went along great with the scenes. I especially believe that the song "Do you Know" by Yang Pa, fits perfectly with one of the main themes of the drama.

Rewatch Value- is 7 because I don't rewatch things often but this one I would, since I really enjoyed it.

Overall if you want to see how a royal court's lies & betrayals changes a person's life & destroys a kingdom or if you just want to see a good drama, check out Gye Baek!

"Gye Baek" is, overall, a great drama.

I will start talking about the story. The drama is set during The Three Kingdoms Period. It tells the story of General Gye Baek of Baekje, which is a very well-known hero of Korea.

The story is very interesting, never boring, and the actors did a great job, but I couldn't help but hating some of the main characters. I didn't find a love story read more which was interesting enough to catch my attention. Perhaps that's the main reason I can't give this series a global mark of 10 points.

The music is quite nice also. When I was watching the drama I didn't notice it very much, but after finishing it and listening to some of the songs included in the soundtrack, I was surprised with some nice songs.

I think it has a high rewatch value also. The main problem is that it is quite long, so I wouldn't watch it again right now, but probably in future I would feel like watching it once more.

    I'm at ep 2 now and I'm like: 'Oh, this soundtrack, it sounds familiar, doesn't it?'
    That feeling when I realized that it was also in Six Flying Dragons <3.

    OMONA I found the drama so boring. :( Hated everything about it with the type of characters I hate the most. So cliché and the solemn acting I can't stand!!!! Arghhh... Regret watching it.

    I like this drama but just don't like all the deceit in the family and how they are all so hungry for power. I know it's a drama but it seems all Asian dramas no matter where they are set end up the same . Korean history to me is mind boggling the killing of brothers , mothers everyone that gets in they way of their power. I have now read a lot of Korean history and it seems that the dramas that claim to be true historical sites are true to form. I know all history has its evil stuff so no judgment just saying.

      I haven't seen this yet, but I'm thinking about it. I've watched several historical dramas and movies in a row. Sadly, if you watch Historical dramas from any country, from any time period, there will be deceit, hunger for power, and filled with greed. I don't like it either, but that's what the world has been filled with since the Beginning...

      You are right I have watched a lot of Kdramas and Cdramas , not much else but they killing of family for power I have not seen as much in other history as Korean and Chinese drama. But I am not that informed on history aspect of other countries. The way of the world is what it is you are right.
