While I have not finished this drama series (it is still currently being aired), I have enjoyed what I have seen thus far.

I did not care much for the early episodes with the young characters, though I do understand that these episodes were important so that you can understand the history of the characters.

Story
The story is different compared to the other dramas I've watched, though that doesn't mean there read more aren't moments that have that dramatic flourish of being almost completely unrealistic. However, in the 10 episodes I've watched, there actually hasn't been as much progress as I would have hoped being this far into the series.

Acting/Cast
Kim Bum, oh my goodness he is perfectly cast for this. The moment he makes his appearance as the older Tae Do you will swoon. Moon Geun Young as Yoo Jung Yi is also very good as she does translate the characteristics of the younger version of herself fluidly.

Music
I really haven't paid much attention to the music and so far the OST doesn't have a song I would want as part of my music collection.

Rewatch Value
This is a long series. I probably wouldn't rewatch it for a long time for this simple fact. Though Kim Bum would bring me back for sure.

I really liked the younger versions of the characters. I hate the step-brother prince, but I like the first lead younger couterpart. I think the younger main-leads had chemistry.


Story: 10/10 because I've never heard pottery was so important in Korean history.

Acting: 7/10 because younger counterparts were great. I thought the acting pretty good. It was not the best Moon Geum Young drama, but she did okay here.

Music: 9/10 because read more the music sets the right mood & the historical dramas I've watched have great OSTs.

Rewatch value: 6/10 because it's very long drama & there are parts where I won't watch again, but I would watch Moon Geum Young & Kim Bum parts.

Not my favorite drama of all time, but if you like historical, then go for it.

    Lee Sang Yoon's acting was great. Although the ending was disappointing but overall it wasn't a bad drama 8.5/10 is my rating c:

    Actresses I LIKED... at first !!...but tiring after watching them do the same thing in every role--->
    ---> i.e. Experts at being Pathetic and resort to pouting or Crying (loudly) as the only way they know to show loss/sadness : Moon Geun-Young.... Kong Hyo-Jin ... Park Shin-Hye .......
    .... (can anyone do 'Pathetic' better than those three?!?!)

    .... the 3 above need lessons in how to express sadness and solicit sympathy from the viewers w/out looking pathetic .... and... w/out pouting or crying every other scene !

    They can learn from Jang Na-Ra, who I just saw in "Fated to Love You"...
    She plays a super nice , weak , obedient , non-assertive , soft spoken woman .... .... she managed to portray her sadness , fear , and sense of loss... w/out Ever seeming pathetic ...and.... she only cried when in extreme pain .... Perfect realistic crying ! ...no wailing or bawling ...
    She gave DIGNITY to the doormat that is "Post-it-Girl" ...

    They also need a lesson from Janine Chang...Just saw 2 dramas w/ her....("Best Time" and "Le Jun Kai").... they should learn how to express fear and pain just w/ the eyes ! .... to express sadness even w/ a smile on her face...

    Sorry for the rant, I guess I'm disappointed in MGY's performance! ...

    had very good potential ...but .... half way thru it became repetitive and the plot did not advance until the last few episodes .... disapointing .... story and acting was so-so ... ....

    Kim Bum still looks so modern to me, whatever he wears or whatever his hairstyle is, his face is just so pretty boyish :')

    upset at the ending don't understand why she couldn't be with him. The show dragged on a bit from the middle to end. Started off good. Disappointed on the romance between jung yi(moon geun young) and prince gwang hae(lee sang yoon. Their should been more romance and chemistry between them. huh soo disappointing.

    This was an interesting drama for me to watch mainly for the part concerning the ceramic making in the Joseon era. Besides this aspect I found the plot to be quite typical and similar to other saeguks seen before and I also thought the ending to be quite unsatisfactory. I rated it 8 mostly because of the effort gone into producing 32 episodes and for the good acting of most of the cast.
