    To say I was apprehensive about watching such a time consuming drama is an understatement, but strong emotional performances, masterful martial arts and an enthralling soundtrack...... help make this a wonderfully entertaining saga. Jumong reminds me a lot of King Arthur. King Arthur had his wizard Merlin and Jumong had Yeomiul. King Arthur had his Round Table knights and Jumong had his brotherhood, etc...

    Also recommend "Kingdom of The Winds", which is the story of Jumong's grandson and also stars Song Ill Gook.

    JUMONG is one of the best korean drama i have seen until now because it has everything: action, romance, history, music, drama, a very well made plot and intrigue and everything is combined in a beatiful story that has to be seen by everyone who is in love with asian dramas.

      only on ep 2 but it's great but alot of violence that is cruel but what do you expect from a Historical?

      Are you finished? How long did it take you?

      Yea from the beginning he's an immature person and his brothers treat him harshly but he'll soon mature and become a GREEAAAT man. There's a lot of violence in historical dramas which is realistic IMO, that's how it was in the past.

      It took me less than a month! 25 days or something :)

      It's not that good, I was frustrated after 60 ep, the romance after their marriage was so ridicule, and I can't understand why, a little love in this period don't alter the storyline, why they have to be so lame about their love, we can presume one answer about their cold relationship after marriage : bed problem lol

    So much epic. Watch it !!!
  • shiroi-ookami Feb 27, 2013
    I've watched it out of curiosity because it played a major part in the korean wave. I'm very critical when it comes to hyped movies and dramas, so my expectation were high. But I was surprised how addicted I became and how much I enjoyed this drama. It truly deserves the hype and every recognitin it got. Excellent cast, nice soundtrack without being too penetrant, great acting from everyone (which is usually not the case in most of dramas), good pacing and execution. The plot never felt dragging despite the huge numbers of episodes. Through this drama I got to know some fine actors such as Song Il Gook, Bae Soo Bin and Han Hye Jin.
