I really like this drama a lot. The storyline is great despite of 4 episodes cut from originally 24 episodes ๐Ÿ˜ฆ . But i think there are some plot that lack of attention and not too great ending especially Seol and Prince Yang Myeong ending (sorry for the spoiler for those who haven’t watch this drama) and i like their childhood story better than when they are grow up. My final rating for this drama is 8/10. What do you think? Do you like this drama? Your thoughts in comment are appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. And I’d like to recommend historical K-Drama to you. That is ‘The deep rooted tree(๋ฟŒ๋ฆฌ๊นŠ์€ ๋‚˜๋ฌด)’. The main plot is about invention of Hangeul(ํ•œ๊ธ€). This Drama is one of memorable drama to me.
