I really liked Kim Soo Ro (the Iron King) I think it is my 4th favorite Saguk <3
The story is about a man who was basically "taken" at birth - he lived believing someone else was his parents - while people fight him and his "different values" he fights back.
Cast: Ji Sung (Kim Soo Ro) I liked him a lot, I loved how he viewed things and how his beliefs never seemed to waver - he also had a strong sense of loyalty for one woman. there are two women in his life - one I didn't like (you'd find out later by watching the drama why she isn't acceptable) and the other woman who was always silently by his side (who I loved a lot) - I thought the romance between them was beautiful (even if it did get a late start by him - hers came early on).
Music: usual Saguk music - I can't really remember as it has been awhile since I've watched this drama now...
Re-watch Value: I really want to re-watch this drama at some point -

Either way I think this is a beautiful love story and development of a new land by Kim Soo Ro

I watched this drama only for Ji Sung. He was great, but the story dragged a lot for me. I knew the ending because I'm always curious to read the real life stories of historical fiction dramas while watching it too. The plot felt very true to life, but I wonder if they could have cut out a lot of scenes to help move the story along. I was bored. Frequently.

The chemistry between the leads was great, but it was barely there, so that was disappointing. I don't really want to recommend this to anyone because I felt I only finished because I had Ji Sung withdrawals after Heal Me, Kill Me and I ran out of dramas to occupy my free time.
