I am a 90% fan of this drama, and since there doesn't seem to be a forum thread on it, I decided to make one.

I would be a hundred percent fan if it were not for a few things:

* the character of Jang Bogo is the most stupid character ever! also, I hate the way he treats Yum Moon. Even though I am a fan of Choi Soo Jong, I really have to wonder why he took this role.

* why does everyone "good" and interesting die at the end except Jung-hwa?

* doesn't Choi Soo Jong look like a shorty next to Song Il-guk and Kim Heung Soo? In fact, he's only taller than one actress in the drama: Soo Ae. Even Chae Si-ra and Chae Jung Ahn are taller than him!

Otherwise, this drama is great in my opinion. If you haven't seen it yet, it's on aznv.tv.

maybe...i don't know, but they can enjoy the yum moon-junghwa-jang bogo-chaeryung "complications"! And I don't really think whether you studied Jang Bogo in middle school for history makes a large difference whether you enjoy the drama or not....

Ya, see the early parts of the drama, then kinda skipped/skimmed through the middle episodes and I have to agree, the way the good guy treated the bad guy was tooo unbelievable.

Ending stunk too; yeah it's based on historical events but I guess the moral of this drama is " be stupid in constantly forgiving your enemy and you'll get your due reward"

My biggest problem with the drama was Jang Bogu's sidekick. The only thing the guy was good at was being probably the worst actor, being an ugly butt [email protected] and just being so annoying in every scene he was in--- I had to skip it after awhile.

Jumong is soo much better. The other drama I saw "Ballad of Seodunggu" had pretty decent storyline but I don't like the main actor. He was also in Forbidden Love and he's another bad actor.
