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.
The story is different compared to the other dramas I've watched, though that doesn't mean there read morearen'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.
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.
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.
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.
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! ...
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.
Okay let's set the facts straight. Tae Do dying was lame, purley lame. Never once I thought a character would need a more emotional dying scene than Tae Do. But this... honestly... No! And then you get this Ending. SHE WAS KIDNAPPED BY THE MING!!!! NOT THE JAPANESE!!! AND SHE IS NOT STAYING THERE!!!! SHE RETURNED!!! SO WHY NOT (if you are already at twisting the historical facts) TWIST IT SOME MORE SO SHE RETURNS AND WE GET A HAPPY UNREALISTIC LOVEY DOVEY ENDING. GNAH!. And I swear they should have concentrated much more on the japanese war, and let the major plot happen there, this would have been a lot more interesting. What an unsatisfying Drama
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.
