I am really enjoying this show. Lots of intrigue, beautiful costumes, and wonderful martial arts. SPOILER ALERT:............YIKES I just watched up until the last 5 minutes of episode 24, and had to turn it off! I could not watch this bleeding horror.....I don't know how the hero will live with himself after this........I am afraid to begin episode 25, because of the recap. And he has to go mad, I know I would. What am I going to do? Will wait until morning when I am psychologically stronger to tune in. - OK got up my nerve and tuned in. Glad I did. One of the best final episodes I have seen, everything is resolved. Really an excellent series.
Jang Hyuk, Jang Hyuk, Jang Hyuk. But, cannot go over three stars. I have seen four episodes. The first two were very good but episodes 3 and 5 drag somewhat. Too much farting and butt jokes. The martial arts scenes are in darkness, or just stop and start, and slow mo video tricks, not nicely choreographed and rehearsed. Is the show a saguek, comedy, romance, melodrama? It doesn't seem to make up its mind. Costumes are good, cast is great. Story starts out fun and then sort of stalls I will continue to watch and hope for the best, but not holding my breath until the next episode. Episodes 7&8 got better. I wasn't bored or turned off by the silliness, so I will raise the ratings if it continues.
The plot feels too contrived, but it is entertaining and keeps you watching for the first two episodes. Hyun Bin is just worthwhile watching period. After watching ep. 6, this could be the last time, I don't know. The suspense (stalker) plot not all that gripping. Has its charm, but it is so so so slow. Trying but my determination is dying, this one is just not doing it for me. Stupid writing. Cheerleading for a circus tryout? The show is a about a circus troupe, but never see a circus act. Insults your intelligence.
