Ok where to start. i started watching this Drama becuz of Queen seonduk and i was curious to see what this version wld be like. To be honest it was good, just a little above average. However it fell down in a number of areas for me. I did find it a bit drawn out in some episodes and that's rather funny tho becuz the ending seemed rushed. I mean major battle scenes between Goguryeo and Tang was rushed n kept on a small scale. Anyway i know $$$ probably caused that, historical Dramas can cost a handsome penny. With all said it was a good drama that explored and explain Korean history to me for that time period. It basically surrounds the unification of Korea under the Silla kingdom. Showing what major players like Yusin did for the country, for that aspect well done. CHUN CHUN & YUSHIN carried this drama rather well, i missed Mishel wen she was dealt with.( she is a very interesting character). you`ll find a lot of battle scenes, politics, very very low romance for its main push was the history. Anywayz take it in small doses but its a good drama.
