OK, I read the reviews first, so no surprise at the mature content.

At first I thought the story line would be a bit cliched...typical love interest and jealousies etc. So, I was pleasantly surprised by the realistic emotions and feelings that the main cast leads the viewer as the film progresses. True, I thought stars like Jo In Sung and Song Hi Hyo would not have needed to bare all for read more such a film as this - and I don't believe there was a need for so many such scenes - but they bring out the emotions.

The way the film was shot - use of color, close-ups, music and visuals - was top-notch. I especially loved the way the eyes and the face were used as instruments for conveying urgency, passion, fear and anger. The fight scenes also get a thumbs-up.

I came across of this movie accidentally on TV. Since it's rare to watch Korean movies on TV i thought i would give it a try. i was watching it with my parent and thought they're not fond of Korean movies they said they really liked it.
Plot was interesting and acting was superb. My jaw dropped when i saw that sex scenes. Koreans always have problems with kissing scenes and man read more to man scenes done with such a high quality was really surprising.
Everything in this movie was unique. Story, acting, music, even fight scenes... everything was done well.
I really liked the movie and i would recommend it to those who aren't against of watching man to man scenes but love interesting and original movies.

A very tragic and sad love story, deserves a watch!!

Both films involve a love triangle of some sort riddled with high tension, jealousy, and royal scandals.

    I didn't like the ending, but not because it was bad executed. I don't like such endings in general. And in the middle I think it was repeating itself a little bit.
    But the rest of this movie, was just spectacular. I had goosebumps watching! The acting was great!

    It's an alright movie. I liked the story and I'm always a fan of historical settings. I have to say though, the sex scenes were a...a bit much. At first they may have contributed towards the emotions and concepts the film wanted to convey, but soon it became just plain unnecessary tbh. After a while they no longer felt like they added substance to the movie at all, and dragged on for far longer than was needed, thus becoming redundant. There were so many more important things that could have been shown instead :/ But despite that, this is still a pretty good movie. The actors especially did a great job portraying their roles. And Joo Jin Mo really suits playing king roles~ I find it amusing how he's a Goryeo king both here and in Empress Ki :D
