It started out all over the place, but now as of episode 8 it is coming together and I am enjoying it very much. It helps if you have an idea of the historic beginning of the Joseon dynasty. YAI is wonderful. He looks like a teenager in this drama and he is really putting everything into each and every word. Most of the actors are doing great, but, (sorry for venting here, but I just have to) I admit, that I harbor negative vibes for Shin Se Kyung, (golly how does she get these lead roles, who does this girl know?) I just cannot get past her wooden, shallowness and placing her in a drama with the stunning Jung Yoo Mi, who is so great, just makes her seem even worse by contrast. Part of this is not her fault though, that biting scene was just such a completely lame and stereotyped girl/boy fussing scene that the writers seem to contrive to make her character annoying as well. Up to episode 36, just gets better and better.
Funny, romantic, surprisingly touching. Well done.
Haven't watched it yet, but trying to imagine Shin Min Ah fat and out of shape......wondering how they did it, may trick photography.
