This great historical drama about the stormy life story of Hur Jun, a legendary doctor of the Chosun Dynasty.
Huh Joon was an illegitimate child of the governor of Pyong Ahn Do (a region in Northern Korea) and spent his days acting as the leader of a smuggling ring. When caught, his father arranged for Huh Joon and his mother to leave for Kyung Sang Do (a region in Southern Korea). Thisis where he met the reputable Dr. Yoo and discovered his talent and interest in medicine and healing people. Soon his life started to make a complete turn from his sordid past and he went on to become the emperor's physician.
Cast & Credits
acting wise, all actors did great. the love story between the two main leads were not fully developed, its acceptables since its not a love story but more on the struggle of hur jun becoming a doctor.
compare to jewel in the palace (which i rewatched 3times), i dont see myself rewatching this ever.
im planning to see the 2013 version as soon as i find a link for it.
