I've never written a review here before, so let's see how this turns out ^^ This is my 2nd historical drama, first was "The Moon that embraces the sun". Honestly, this one was way more enjoyable to me.

I'm not that fond of cross dressing shows/dramas (Hana Kimi, Ouran, etc..) Not even Coffee Prince was that great to me, I guess You're Beautiful and now this have to be the exceptions. However I don't want to compare it to You're Beautiful since the storylines are completely different, despite it having a girl dressing up as a boy.
I loved Park Min Young in City Hunter, and just randomly started watching this drama because she was in it. In my opinion, this drama is one of the
best that there are, even if it is not known as much as Boys Over Flowers or You're Beautiful.
All the actors were GREAT!! This drama introduced me to amazing actors which I will continue to watch from now on. The characters stayed in my heart, and I wish I could have seen even more... "Hey, I'm Gu Yong Ha! ;) " I'll never forget that line or his cute winks. I'll miss Geol-Oh's hiccups and his charm. Yeorim... So lovable.. Funny and silly, yet smart and caring too. I'll miss him.
Lee Soon jun and kim yoon hee's romance was really great, and I loved how it all progressed. I loved the pace of the story, for me, not draggy at all. The romance was great as well, even though prioritizing other important things in the story. (Which I found very interesting, the whole Geum Deung ji sa) I loved the character development of each character (especially Lee soon jun. His character may have started off a bit dull, but he turned into a very epic person :D ) The literature was beautiful (the writings, quotes and sayings stated) and I'm a big literature freak so that was inspiring for me. *.* I learned a lot about Korean history too.
The ending scene was hilarious!! I can just say that xD Though I wanted some more things to be cleared up, I still liked it. Recommend this drama if you're starting of to Historical dramas, like light romance, depth scenes and lovable characters. Definitely going to re-watch this drama in the future, and now, I look forward to watching Rooftop Prince to see more of Micky Yoochun's acting. ^_^
