The Flower in Prison in one word - Once you popped you can't stop.

The teaser cover depicts a lovestory but its more than the kind of love that most people are looking for --eros. But its not eros; the lovestory will be molded by inner beauty, respect, intelligence, perseverance, compassion and wittyness of female lead. She has depict of what a man really look for a woman - she does not have to extravagant, in make ups but its being with sense of helping others even when you were left with nothing; its being useful. The female lead is not just happy but joyful. She has lots of issues inside - where she came from, her family line, why her mother has to be stabbed and chased to death; yet it didn't stop her from growing maturely.

She makes use of the "useless" and encouraging them that there's life more than money and power. Saeguk setting but better than Robinhood. You don't have to study in best school but work your best to learn and make use properly of what you learn. Use it to help and not opressed the weak.

Love all the characters and I am drawn to the men who are link to the lead female. They each have their own story to share with this witty young lady (a) Tae Won - he owns her heart (b) The grandson of her mentor - he's drawn to her sense of justice and (c) the innocent king - drawn to her tactician and strategidt thinking and now her martial arts.

Even the ladies that hate her because the women are behind because they cannot cope with her compassion and wittyness.

I so like this drama. I'm hooked and encourage to be liked her - works hard, not slacking, helpful and strategist.

I LOVE historical dramas so its a given that i watched this one too. On the scale it holds its own, i still prefer the princes's man and ljimea to this one but if you enjoyed the before mentioned you will enjoy this one as well. It is a invigorating, exiting and generally pleasant to watch i caught myself laughing out loud on several occasions and the acting was superb "Aigooo" i do love all the little side stories as well, as it shows us just how corrupt the legal system can be. it also gives you a better overview of what you had to endure in those times. so this one is a thumbs up from me!
