There's something about saeguk movies that always feel rushed, and this movie was no exception. There was so much more they could have done with the story and the characters. The romance between the queen and Kong Jin was nothing great and neither was the king's sob story. What really made this movie great was the relationship that developed between Kong Jin and Dol Seok ( I was rooting for you, we were all rooting for you! How dare you? ). Their friendship/rivalry was really what drove this movie, and it was interesting until the very end.
I honestly watched this movie for the clothes; I'm a history geek and I wanted to see the history behind Joseon fashion. So I didn't watch with very high expectation...thus I wasn't disappointed. As for the actors...I'm not a huge fan of Park Shin Hye's acting but wow, she did a great job in this movie. As for Go Soo, this was my first time seeing something by him. His character was extremely likable!

I really enjoyed this movie. I loved the actors and felt that they were casted very well for this film. The story had me honestly crying and smiling. Go Soo acted his part very well, and it was quite easy to quickly fall in love with his easy going personality (Though it also helped that he is also attractive). The rivalry between Go Soo and the head tailor was cute and annoying at times. Though it seemed more like an one sided rivalry to be honest. Also I loved the clothes!!! They were so beautiful, especially the dresses the queen got to wear.
I would recommend this movie and I'll also rewatch this movie. There are scenes that are worth rewinding
