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.

This is one of many dramas that starting beautifully and end up badly, i was loving it till about 14 eps, then it goes repetitive and boring,

it's about a girl who dream to be a ceramist but in her time no woman allowed to become one, so here we have a lot of struggling with some birth secret, a prince charming and some skillful childhood brother involved, well, nothing new, but read more with a lot of talented actors i expect more from this drama,the plot freeze at some point and trust me it's going nowhere, the characters have no development at all till the last ep, the relationships are worse, can u believe when ur childhood brother confess to you as a man and u never have the same feeling with him, the next day there will be no awkward moment?? they made it like nothing happen which i can't accept,

there are too many holes in this drama, first, jeongi's character, from a girl who knew nothing about making a ceramic suddenly being able to make the best one??
second, the prince, he was so brave and responsible as a child, but when he grew up all he can do is checking his father's mood, rather than think about his people he just focus on how to please him, and how can he always get fooled by his scheming brother?? first time, well, he's not prepared, second, he get caught off guard, third time?? he never learn huh?,
all the other characters are no help, no improvement in their character either,

this drama annoyed me so much, so i won't recommend it if you don't have time, but if you have so much time to spend you can watch it, it's all ur choice..

Both have really strong female leads who have had a difficult past and hunger for vengeance. Also, they both pretend to be a man at some point in the drama.

    I was watching this religiously for a period of time, and then I dropped it about halfway through. Is it worth finishing? I can't decide

    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:

    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.
