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 morewith 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..
I can't believe I used to hate historical dramas. After watching Jewel in the Palace however, I feel enlightened which ultimately made me watch this one. I am sooo glad I did.
story/plot line: I absolutely loved the plot, it was excellent and I didn't feel like the writer lost interest. It was all beautifully organized and over all brilliantly touching.
characters/ actors: Ok the acting in this was superb. You really read morefelt the emotions each character was feeling and they had some of the best crying scenes I've ever seen in a drama. The crying was so realistic and heartbreaking it made me cry. I really enjoyed that the main characters had ambition and willpower and that there was really no clear line about who was good or bad. There were times where you pitied and felt bad for the enemies and to me, that's realistic. No body is completely bad. Except maybe for her 'friend' in this. She was just evil. I've seen a lot of dramas where the main lead is hungry for revenge and sets out to destroy those who did them wrong but after watching this, it was refreshing because FINALLY we have a female lead who knows how to take revenge. After watching her exact her vengeance I was like 'and that ladies and gentlemen is how its done.' I wanted to see a little more romance in it but I loved and hated how they ended it. It was beautifully sad and realistic but at the same time infuriating to the point where I wanted to rip my eyeballs out. If you are a stoic person and don't cry through the whole series, be prepared for the last 3 episodes because I never once stopped crying through them.
music: everyone knows music makes the drama (that and the sexy lead actors of course haha) but while I still love and think the music Jewel in the Palace is unbeatable, this drama came pretty close. The person who did the music was never confused about what music was good for what scene and the music was so beautifully done it made every scene that much intense.
overall, i'd say watch this drama. You'll kind of hate yourself for watching because once again those last 3 episodes were killer but you won't regret it.
If someone could help I feel this is the same story as Kings Face but from different angle with the story about the artisan, but the king and princess seem to be the same and the storyline as well am I right or wrong?
Indeed, it's about the same historical period ( reing of king Seonjo and the battle for the Crown prince position with IM Hae, Gwangae and In Bin mama) but I prefered the way King's face treated the period with less episodes (23) but with a more detailed and consisstent storyline... I watched both because I wanted to check the differences.. If you have the time :)
Thanks I have since watched both and I agree Kings face did a much better job in less episodes and they gave Gwangae more credit for his accomplishments although he was eventually dethroned in history he did some good things.appreciate your response.
What I love about this drama is the ending. Nothing you would expect from a korean drama, filled with happy endings. The ending of this drama was a shock, totally not expected that to happen. This is not like any other drama I've watched.
I'm actually watching the series and who else wanted to punch the prince in the face at the beginning from epi 13? -.-
Jung lost everything because of him and he blames her for everything and what has become of her. It should have been the other way around.
did i miss something or that was really the ending of the show??? like in the end she FINALLY confesses that she love him (but dont say those words exactly) but she had to go back. i was hoping that prince gwang hae kissed her and tell her to wait i will win this war so i can come back 2 you. and the 17 years later i was hoping like where is everyone did the king and queen died, what about im hae where he go and the rest of the ppl what happen to them. it was like here king gwang hae all mature with a beard and imagining jung yi giving him a vase and stuff and that was the end...... man sorry if my thing is long im just disappointed at the ending that all......
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.
