After 12 Weeks of laughter and tears this drama has come to an end. This was just an amazing love story between the King and JOJ. From start to the finish i was just memorised and in awe with this drama. The writers have done a very well done job (round of applause), also there are many Historical dramas about Jang Hee Bin but this one for me showed me who she actually was and not the evil person they make her seem out to be.

The acting was just lush Yoo Ah In is by far the BEST KING, every Monday and Tuesday i waited to see him, he will melt your heart. Kim Tee Hee also did an amazing job. However the story dragged on a bit for like 4ep but it picked up right away that's why its (1 point away from a 10)

Please, please, please please do not hesitate to watch this drama give it a chance you will love it as much me and the other hundreds who watched it.

THE BEST DRAMA FOR 2013 FOR ME :)

well where do i start?
First of all it was the longest drama i ever watched, despite this i never once skipped a scene i watched all of them. The story line was one of THE BEST historical dramas i ever seen, i loved every bit and never got bored. The way the story was told is like unlike any other, it takes you from the ending to the beginning. Actors suited their roles gratefully.

but but but but......

personally the last scene was so frustrating to watch i almost gave up. at the end it kinda dragged but, would i say 39 hours were worth wasted hmmmmmmm probably.

I would suggest people to watch this do not let the length of the epsiod e put you off

over and out :)

OK where do I even begin???

This was by far the best Korean drama no scratch that the BEST Asian drama I ever seen to date. I mean it was so captivating sometimes I forgot to eat ( yeah that is how addicted I got :) ). The story line was inspiring, funny and captivating. The actors did a very well done job in conveying their emptions well with their acting. The music was just amazing, i could not get it out of my head even if i try to. Personally, despite being 60 episode, you will never get bored because, each episode has its own story line and a new adventure for Dong Yi and her fellow people.

As always there can never be a 100% perfect drama out there so here are a few pointers i found a bit annoying.

*To muchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh bloody flashbacks, i will guarantee you there will be flashbacks every 5 min in each episode.
* The actors sometimes seem a bit lost while in the middle of filming, they just seem to stare out into space.
* sometimes it feels like the story line was a bit repeated.
*To be honest 60 episode was not needed they could have stopped at 50.

Overall, if you like Historical drams then this is the one to watch, it was witty, charming, charismatic and just lovely to watch.

Let me know what you think (",)

It has been a long time since i did a review, but i felt like i should do one for this. Unlike everyone i waited until its finished to watch it. For two whole days i was hooked. :) I am not gone talk about the story line and what not because everyone here has done that. DO NOT WATCH THE DRAMA BASED ON THE SCORES GIVEN HERE. WHY? because your expectation will be high and you might end up being a little bit disappointed. Almost everyone here gave this drama 10/10. For me it was 8/10. Here is why?
The story line is nothing special what made me want to keep watching this was the actors and their chemistry with each other. THE whole time i was on my toes and almost losing it in some points. Honestly 20ep was a bit long they could have finished it in 16. The last two ep were a bit frustrating because it left me wanting to find out what happened to the other characters nevertheless, although my satisfaction was not fulfilled it was nice to see a drama that keeps the momentum going. And the fact that there was some comedy also made this drama enjoyable LOVED Chang Wook here even better than in Empress KI. So good luck and enjoy the drama it is HIGHLY addictive.

This review could be taken either way so here it goes.

Before I watched this I read previous reviews and most of them gave it a 10/10 for almost every area of the drama.
For me this is how it goes.....
Story: The genera suggests melodrama and romance, this is OVER THE TOP melodrama drama i EVER watched in my entire be it Asian or Western. The amount of crying scenes in this drama is just to much. I skipped almost every scene after Episode 7. Although the love story and the twists and turns were catchy it was TO MUCH.

Acting: these people's acting would make you believe they are actually hurting in real life. All actors gave it 100%.

Music, was not bad

Rewath Value. In all honest dont waste your time watching it again, better off watching another drama.

Overall: despite receiving very good reviews from fellow MDLs, i think this drama was given to much credit, despite the great acting and OK love story it was just unbearable and to much to handle.

Please anyone that's planing to watch this, please let me know your thoughts message me on here. :)

Well here it goes.

THE MAIN reason i watched this drama was because of Lee Min Ho :). However, i found this drama to be up to scratch here are my reasons.

THE STORY: Queen In Hyun's Man and this drama have similar vibes to them (expect the woman lead is an actor and the setting is in the Josen era) any wayyy the story dragged on a bit i think 20 episodes would have been enough. It was a love story with some twists and turns added, as well as time loops. I got a bit confused at the end so i advice you watch the finale twice maybe three times lol.

CAST: The cast were just perfect for each role, they made you laugh, angry, cry, frustrated, worried, anxious and annoyed. Either way they all gave their best.

MUSIC: it was a bit dramatic and OK -_-

OVERALL: well, i kind of enjoyed it i guess i was expecting to much, but the story and the connections with each characters keeps you wanting to know more. I will again advice you to watch the ending at least to understand it, director and writers pissed me off at the end. they could have made it more clear for the audience :(

Enjoy and let me know :)

HHmmmmmmmm well here it goes

Jut finished watching the last episode like now, and i have to say i was dissapointed with the end. no point me giving you the story line becuse you want my opinion so read on.

I was waiting for this drama with excitement juts like everyone else, ep between 1-18 juts keep you on your feet every week i had to wait with tension of what would happen to the characters. this drama had wit, charisma,laughter, pain and a lot more.

However.....

ep between 19-21 it felt like the writer did not know what to do with the story, they confused the hell out of me to be honest, it was like Fashion King where the ending did not make sense at all. It wasn't your typical K-Drama ending. But i enjoyed watching it to say the least. Oh and at the end the acting was like just awakard and painful to watch :(

At first i was not sure about this drama. I saw it had a lot of good reviews but it did not appeal to me. However, once i started watching it i could not stop, i was done with the drama in like 3 days :)

Story: Although it was your typical poor girl rich boy fall in love concept it was pure masterpiece. I mean the story did not drag out completely each episode was just great.

Cast: each character was just hilarious in their own way, i was not bored even once, there was not a character i hated (unlike some dramas)

Music: Although it used mostly Western music it suited each seen very well

Rewatch: YES YES YES YES YES

I just found out this RIP to Lee un who played Hwang Min Yeop, it was a very unfortunate accident . :(

After debating for like what seems to be ages i decided to watch this drama, then half way through i just wanted to bloody give up here is why....

Characters i have never imagined that a single person could face so much hard ship and still keep going. Me by just watching it i felt sp frustrated for the characters i almost broke my laptop lol. Ta Kau was just truly an amazing character he came back when ever he got dropped. In Sook if you think Gu Jun Pyo mother was evil loool think again this woman was just there are no words to describe her evilness. Ma Jun, what kind of person can be so spitfull, angry, bitter, emotional wreck and still act like human? be the judge of it once your done. Yuk Shinn i DId NOT LIKE HER end of you will know what i mean.

Plot: it was dramatic, every single ep there was misery, twists, laugh, anger. while watching this drama i felt all the emotions under the sun and almost gave up because i got so angry at the writer, some of the events were just unreal, then again it a K-drama of course you was gone get twists and the lot.

Music, only like one song to be honest they could have done better.

Overall, if you are an impatient person dont bother because you gone end up breaking something, as the story develops relay slowly and you will get bothered by the events happening. for me it has defo gone up to my top 10 K-drmas glad i kept on going. :)

First and most i watched this Drama from the reviews it got and i thought why not try it. Here it goes.

The Story: A story about a boy who wanted to make his dreams come true of owning a store. This individual goes through a lot of problems (involving rich chebole family) throughout the drama what happens well i will leave that for you to see :)

Actors,apart from the supporting actors the main once seem to be a bit awkward between each other. Han Tey Hang gave it all his when it comes to the emotional scenes and you could feel his pain and suffering, but for Jin Shim it felt like dry wood to be honest i didn't connect with her at ALL.

Overall: After episode 20 this drama just took forever to get to the point and when it did, it left me scratching my head. I fely like i missed a whole episode. I think the writer was trying to hard in my opinion to reach that melo-dramatic-over-the-top story line. It was funny at times but i kind of wished i didn't waste my time on it :( enjoy and let me know if i made the wrong judgement of this drama.

There are a lot of mixed reviews about this drama. Personally if your thinking watching this drama based on these reviews please do not be put off because it was such a great drama until ep 14 and then it picks up and then it drowns deep in the blue sea.

The story line had everything sadness, happiness, comedy (a lot of it), frustration, anger and confusion. But the last two parts lets it down i think it was due to rushed ending. They wanted to wrap up al of the answered questions. Also, there were some repeated scenes but in different ep which made the story to drag out and lose development. However, the acting was just AMAZING i have no problem with the actors and the emotions they portrayed. Would i watch this? probably not.

Give it a go, you will enjoy the first 14 or so episodes.

Well where do i began??? it started very well and the location they chose were exciting which made me wanted to watch even further. in my opinion this has nothing to do with fashion to an extent. it felt like it had a very week story line and sometimes the actors looked awkward and uncomfortable. There were scenes which made me laugh and sad but i wouldn't watch it again.

I had high hopes for this drama to be honest. The first 5 parts, then it got a bit emotional in the middle then afterwards it dragged on. I think 16ep would have been much better.

The story line was about 3 different couples and there different relationship problems, family acceptance and other dramas. It does tell what reality is like for couples nowdays, but for me it dragged on for agess.

to be honest i was more attracted to the supporting role's characters's relationship, every week i tuned in just to watch them. Watch this if you have a lot of time to spare and your board.

This drama was the best i have watched yet and trust me i have watched a lot of Asian dramas.

The plot, although a cliché it was very interesting and made you wanted to watch even more. There were bits where it got a bit boring but every drama has that.

The music is the BEST i loved it so much and it goes well with each situation that happen.

The cast were great cant complain, expect some characters existence was irrelevance.

Overall 100% worth watching. :)
