I had a terrible experience with Sword and Flower, when I started this series. I set my expectation quite low, so I didn't disappoint myself too much. However, I thoroughly enjoy this series. This is what Sword and Flower should have been. The lead actor and actress will have you rooting for them throughout the series. SPECIAL recognition has to go to Mao Lin Lin playing her role as the queen, Feng Xiao Lian. She in the same category as Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon). When every single female I've talked to about this drama hates her, she's done her job. Production wise, they have good sets, locations, cinematography and customs. Only thing annoying is the high use of make up. I clearly understand the HD filming, but sometimes the faces are just caked with make up that it takes away from the actor/actress dialogue as you focus on the make up instead.
Great series. I love the supernatural plot line. A mix of X-Files meet The sixth Sense, as the leads solve some stories. I thoroughly enjoyed the OST too. Only thing that I would have liked is a different female lead. Gong Hyo Jin just doesn't do it for me, nothing wrong with her acting per se. It might just be how her make up and custom was done.
Great plot story with with supernatural inventiveness ala "What a Woman Want". Love the Court room drama, that always intrigues me. What turned me off is the age difference in the relationship. Please, can we get a guy who is bit older, more of a match for the lead actress? It should not take away from the main plot line with an older guy. Support actress Lee Da Hee is SUPREMELY Sexy, to me anyways. Overall a nice drama.
