I saw an interview with the cast on KBS world, and it looked like an interesting show, and I loved Sung Yu Ri in Snow Queen.

I haven't seen any historical dramas yet, only a couple movies. Should I watch one or two before giving this show a shot? I'm just thinking that if it's a comedy, there will probably be jokes and things I won't understand if I haven't seen some of the popular historical dramas.

Actually I'd recommend you see this since most historical dramas are so epic and grandly serious in theme, not to mention quite long in terms of # of episodes. I'm saying this having seen numerous historical dramas. My 2 all time favorite dramas are both historical (Jumong & Dae Jang Geum) but even so, I recommend this because it is different.

The comedy in this is pretty universal. There's rock n roll music and the night clubs have a totally modern flavor such as with girls on stage, and the "bookings" (waiters hook up guys with girls) which is just like current Korea is flat out funny. AND YES the acting has been wonderful!

Here's a DMV from Hong Gil Dong. The clip is the closing scene from ep7. So far the defining moment in this drama.

Song is titled "If" by Taeyeon from SNSD.

Subtitles by jihaeshi & myself :P

HGD has been framed for burglary, murder, treason and finally blackmailed to turn himself in or have the blood of thousands of innocent lives to bear as guilt. While waiting for the guards to essentially sacrifice himself, Yuri's character comes to try to save HGD. HGD can't runaway because then the king will start killing more innocent folks, not to mention what the king's brother's group will do. Left ep7 in quite a lot of suspense, enjoy.

I agree entirely with di_jb about HGD. I've watched up to episode 6. And, this drama is so good and definitely worth-watching. Don't worry if you're not into historical dramas because it's more of a parody. It is kitsch and hilarious. They have rappers & Las Vegas-style floor shows. (I swear that one of the girls was dressed like Marie Antoinette.) The timing of the humor is impeccable. Finally, the acting is great by the leading actors.
