I really like this drama a lot. The storyline is great despite of 4 episodes cut from originally 24 episodes 😦 . 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! πŸ˜‰
