I love this drama. Whenever I look back at Goong, a smile will always somehow emerge on my face. I have rewatched it numerous of times and I always feel the same admiration for it whilst watching it. It isn't perfect, but is there a drama that is?

The main couple is extremely endearing. Their character growth and relationship isn't boring but extremely sweet. The setting is beautiful and the cinematography wasn't read more a slack job either. The music is my favourite among drama soundtracks, especially since I have no real interest in traditional Korean music. Nothing is really over-exaggerated and there are quite a few cheeky/funny scenes, predominantly in the first half of the drama.

The last few episodes did drag and there is a good reason for it; the drama became a cash cow and was extended for four extra episodes, which is the main and really only reason I'm not giving this drama 10/10.

If you haven't seen this and enjoy Korean dramas, then you should go watch it, like now.

This drama offers a lot of drama. Angst to the point of exhuastion. There are too many episodes which makes it feel drawn out. It is a bit funny in the beginning and the ending was cute. The entire cast was spectacular. Really loved the leads together. I'd probably rewatch this in a couple of years when I want to see the cast again. Overall this drama is amazing because the romance read more in the story does pull you in but it would have been brilliant if it had a shorter episode count.

    I have a hard time finishing this drama and I WANT to finish, but at this point I feel that this drama is dragging way more then it needs to be. Would of been better if it was 16 episodes.

    It's a good drama. The plot is cute, although a little dragging at times. I think the series could have been shortened a little and it would have been better. I really liked the love square, though. As a Yoon Eun Hye fan, I enjoyed seeing her so young and cute :)

    Though the "first night" scene is cute

    she is silly and lacks pride...he's arrogant, rude and I don't think they have much chemistry....and the second male leader I think is not attractive at all (he's not handsome, nor smart, nor funny...) so there's not any "competition" between him and the prince...It wasn't that bad, but wasn't good either, sorry.
