I'm not sure what the positive reviews are all about. I think this drama is terrible. I stopped watching at episode two. Its so sad, that its hard to follow and believe the story and appreciate the actors. I tend to like Korean romantic comedies, so that may be why, but I generally agree with the consensus. Not this time though!
I enjoyed this drama thoroughly and the acting talent of the leads characters. It did trouble me a little that the lead characters, who are of lower status, was more loyal to the king and his desires, than to their own happiness. That's hard for me, someone who lives in modern day America, to relate to, so it's not one of my all time favorites. Historical dramas tend to always place a larger story before the romantic relationship, which I'm not a fan of. Overall, great story and martial arts.
I enjoyed this when I was first getting into k dramas and even then, I felt like this story was watchable but lackluster. Since then, I'm encountered many more k drama rom com that are much more worth the time, like My Girl, City Hall, My girlfriend is a nine-tailed fox, secret garden, coffee prince... just to name a few. This was just a solid two and a half/three star... middle of the run dramas.
