After finishing King Gwanggaeto the Great I have the feeling that I watched a action movie that lasted over 92 hours. Even if the first quarter was a bit too loud for my ears, after I become "immune" to the excessive screaming of all the male characters (I also lowered the volume) I focused just to follow Damdeok in his path to become King Gwanggaeto.
I liked also that the plot was not concentrated just of Damdeok and Goguryeo, but the fight over power was well presented and for the main enemies of Goguryeo, Houyan and Baekje.
The strategies used in battle were amazing and gave me the impression that things could happen in this way.
From all historical dramas that I seen, Lee Tae Gon was the actor that fit the best in the role of a powerful king.
All the actors did a great job, especially that the act was centered on the gestures and facial expression.
The fact that the story is about a great man and a great ruler that really existed is another reason for watching!
A masterpiece of Korean history!

This review may contain spoilers
I have rewatched this drama for about 3 times already. I need extra commitment to finish this drama at first but it got better after 10+ episodes. The bgm is not for my ears, I need to adjust my speaker several times throughout one episode bcs it is so loud. Not to mention how the support actors are really good at screaming.

As for the story, I feel like watching superhero story in historical version. Enemies come and go, our main lead is there to beat them.

I like how the main lead is potrayed as someone upright, brave, decisive and tactically smart but has soft heart and loves his people. Someone you need to become your leader nowadays. He has all the qualities to become leader, tho it is way too good to be true in reality.

Some people would find this drama is boring, especially if you love thriller. No, this drama is not for you. I, in the other hand, am not someone who like that intense feeling, I would rather find out the spoiler to the end than to withstand my curiosity. Most of this drama is about war, so don't ask for deep romance.

I love the conversation the most, no bluffing and very inspirational.
