“Black Knight” is a love story between a woman who is waiting for the love of her life and a man who is willing to do anything to protect his love. The story spans over two hundred years. Moon Soo Ho is a businessman with a pure heart, but he never shows his true colors to anyone except for Jung Hae Ra, a travel agent who has never traveled abroad. Soo Ho and Hae Ra grew up like siblings in Hae Ra's house, but they got separated later. They meet each other after they grow up and love approaches them as if it were fate. Will their love survive despite all the faltering events? (Source: Viki) Edit Translation

Everybody can't stop bashing on the drama. Guys, make your own advice and watch the drama, then if you don't like it, drop it. But don't ask people to not watch it.

For me, The drama was fine. An advanced reincarnation's concept. (similar to Goblin)
It's about :
-strong love
-jealousy,
- memories,
-hard life conditions,
- how far people are ready to go to be rich, why being rich ?
- travel , time travel,
-adventures
- work's life, work's motivation..
-and to love forever

The drama is so rich ! How can you hate it that much. Yea, I agree , the drama don't deserve a 8/10 but at least a 7/10. It's not honest to give it a 1/10 or 3.
The show started strong ! But was finally slow, sometimes complicated. The characters were well done ! Shin Se Kyung improve a lot, her chemisty with Kim Rae Won was not a joke.

The end was pretty interesting, he choose to live forever to keep her with him. I really loved the end.
As Goblin the drama was about Love through the time , and the Ost were pretty good !

This is a big, complicated story to get into. It's going to take the first 5-6 episodes before you are up to speed with what's going on so stick with it, it's worth it. The story is spread over two lifetimes, in the 1800's and in present day and I felt it was done so extremely well. The story in the present day moves along as they then cut to scenes in history to provide back story at appropriate moments, which are then re-reflected on later to provide reminders so you don't need to be worried about "how am I going to remember everything going on here?!" . I like stories that bring a mix of Joseon and modern day as I feel it adds extra depth and history to the story.

Originally chose this one because of Shin Se Kyung having enjoyed her work in another drama and this only helped enhance my appreciation for her work.

I did Initially think about dropping it simply because one of the reasons I am so interested in K-Drama's is to learn more about Korea and Korean history and this one kicks off in Slovenia. I don't have anything against Slovenia of course, and it actually does end up spend most of its time in Korea. Ultimately I really appreciated the visuals and the contrasting scenes from Slovenia as well.

Kim Rae Won, as the male lead, also pulled off the highly charismatic role brilliantly as well.

I found little to criticise in this one, it's a deeply emotional story that will have you reaching for tissues on a number of occasions and fill your heart with warmth on just as many. You're going to really get involved in all the characters and their stories, their feelings and emotions and the long journey some of them have taken to be where they are, which makes even the "bad" character(s) such that you can empathise.

I struggled with the ending to this one, it's nicely concluded but it left me a bit of an emotional wreck for a few days if i'm going to be honest. I get it, I love it - but line yourself up something warm and fluffy like What's Wrong with Secretary Kim as the dessert for this one.

He was her black knight, on so many levels. Totally recommend this without reservation.

My final words - Red Bean Bread right back to the cast and crew, that final slide was perfect.
