This was a wonderful drama. It took me a few episodes to really get into it, but I stuck with it and was really glad I did. I once watched a Korean program on Kimchi. They said there are over 65 varieties of Kimchi. That was a few years ago, so I'm sure the list has grown. All the food in this drama looked delicious and the restaurant was so lovely. Someday I'll watch this again for that heartwarming experience, like coming home.
For the most part, I really liked this series. I'm a fan of Uhm Tae Woong and his superb acting abilities. But, as good as he was it was Lee Joon Hyuk who stole the show. His performance as the tortured Jang Il was absolutely chilling. I did enjoy Lee Hyun Woo as the young Sun Woo, ( He also portrayed Yushin as a teen in Queen Seondeok, with Uhm Tae Woong, in the adult role). However, I too did not like the way Sun Woo treated his girlfriend when he returned as David Kim. Too harsh, cruel! The sandy colored, punk hairstyle was terrible and made him look hard and older. That's why he looked younger at the end. I think his appearance was meant to reflect what was going on in his heart and mind.
Loved this so much! Really made me laugh, and cry. I loved Park Ha Sun. I remember her as the dying Queen from Dong Yi. This new side of her was such fun to watch. She's a great talent. Everyone else was wonderful and I will miss this as it comes to an end. It's good to have it here so I can watch certain favorite episodes with English subs. I highly recommend this. It's worth the watch!
