Just curious, who do you all think is the best actor in this series?


Personally I think I'd have to pick either Kumwa or Mopalmo, although the guy who plays Jumong is a very good actor as well!

But man, whenever Kumwa get's really sad, it tears me up.

I agree that the actor playing Keumwa is the best actor. Even though he is physically shorter than most of the other male characters in the series, he has such a commanding on-screen presence that makes him stand out in front of the other characters. His conflicting character portrays much passion and power that makes you feel for him despite his flaws.

Although I would also have to give props to the actors playing Daeso and Yangjung. The incredulous expressions in their faces when they fail to kill or ruin Jumong cracks me up every time!

hahah yeah. The only reason I didn't like Youngpo as an actor to much because his acting was so over the top. Everything he did was always just so flamboyant and silly.

But that was also probably the role more than the actor. :-P

For me, yeah King Kumwa was one good actor with the sad parts. It was so tragic whenever he fell apart. Very realistic!

But Jumong was also a good character! His leadership skills were tremedous! Even as a made up character his loyalty and care for other jumped out of the screen at me! How could anyone hate him...he always looked so innocent!

Sosuhno was good as well. For a chick who fought and had time to raise her children well while establishing a new nation is impressive.

Last but not least, my very favorite, Haemosu! The drama wouldn't be as good if he hadn't been part of it! He truely was a great impact for me. I cried my eyes out when I thought he was dead and when he did die...well let's leave it at that! He was an amazing person, fighter, leader and master!

Im on 27,wow is this long. All the characters are good, but the guy who plays Jumong,goes from silly wimp to a fierce leader,very cool when he fights and shoots a bow. The women seem to hold back,I assume that is a cultural thing. The King is wonderful,but seems to struggle too. The hero was terriffic. Im waiting for the romance parts

i just finished watching jumong!!! took me more than one week to watch it from episode 1-81 lol
To me jumong is epic!!! best korean series!!!!



To me Young Po is more like the comedian in Jumong.. He did and said funny stuff in JUmon
Mopalmo is the best character because he's faithful and loyal to Jumong and i like the way he cries

The actor playing King Geumwa, Mr.Jeon Gwang Ryeol, is a pretty famous, superb, and exceptional actor in South Korea. He is most famous for playing Heo Jun, another classic by MBC which is very well known in South Korea. The actress playing the priestess, Ms. Lee Mi Sook, is pretty famous too, and she has starred in another movie called Besame Mucho and a SBS series called Love Of Flu with Mr.Jeon and Ms. Kyeon Mi Ri, the actress playing the Empress in this series. Ms. Kyeon is renowned around Asia through her role in Dae Jang Geum.

By the way, I forgot to mention, the actor playing Prince Daeso here, plays another prince in Mr.Jeon's Heo Jun as well, and is Heo Jun's patron in the series.

song il gook was here in Iran around 2 months ago.
Surprisingly, he and Suhsano aghashe are so popular here.The guy could hardly believe his eyes when he faced cheering crowds wherever he went. I myself like him too.His character in Jumong and Kingdom of the winds is one of a great ,leader,however, i was somehow upset by Emperor of the sea in which he appears as a wicked person.Anyway,he's the first and last oriental actor I've ever liked.

Kim seung Soo was also great as DaeSo, i think he portrayed his anger tantrums really well~
