    Some important notes about this drama
    I would like to offer some insights, if that's all right...

    1. While Han empire is portrayed as a brutal empire targeting innocent civilians, such practices were very common and not even seen as something despicable or outrageous. In fact, Goguryuh (the kingdom that the titular character will eventually establish) survived in its first few generations by doing the exactly same thing to its ...

    It's Epic, and Tragic.
    This is one of the highest rated Korean Dramas of all time, and has won multiple awards for good reason.
    It follows Jumong's mythical rise from a clueless boy to the Uniter of kingdoms. Interwoven are heartbreaking stories of love unrequited and cut short, friendship and rivalry, dirty politics and sorcery, vicious backstabbing, and bittersweet triumph. There is lots of war, excellent fights, ...

    The best drama I have seen
    I have watched a lot of dramas, and from different nations, but still, none compare to Jumong. Everything from the costumes, cinematography, the beautiful, natural settings to the cast is superb and of the highest quality. Some of my favorite scenes were of Jumong and Haemosu training together; the shots and music of this scene made me get goosebumps. I have purchased this series on DVD as a show ...

    Addicting Saga is Epic....
    To say I was apprehensive about watching such a time consuming drama is an understatement, but strong emotional performances, masterful martial arts and an enthralling soundtrack...... help make this brilliantly written saga....EPIC. Jumong reminds me a lot of King Arthur. King Arthur had his wizard Merlin and Jumong had Yeomiul. King Arthur had his Round Table knights and Jumong had his ...

    Best Korean Drama I have seen
    I am not a fan of Asian dramas, but I decided to look at this show and I have looked at all 82 episodes. Lets just say this show is captivating and sensational and once you start watching you will agree with me period.

    My view on the Korean series Jumong.
    I liked this series for the most part. I found it rather annoying they kept using the same music over and over again in the whole series. Another thing I noticed is the set size along with the background was rather small. I think they should have shown them in more sets/zones. You'll notice how they are almost always in the same areas sometimes with a different camera angle. During the battles ...

    Overwhelmingly remarkable on every possible level!
    Everything about this drama is brilliant and highly addictive period drama. I have actually watched the whole series twice. Every time, I am moved by the story line and the great portrayal of the character Jumong. There are a number of exciting twist and unexpected believable moments between the characters. The obstacles that Jumong experience were very practical and realistic. The characters ...

    Addiction! Hell Yeah!!!!!!
    This is the first Koreanovela that I love soooo much! I can't stressed anymore than that...

    Well, let's see:

    -I had multiple headaches and migraines due to lack of sleep just to finish watching the whole series
    -I barely eat because it gets in the way of me watching the series
    -I watched the series for almost 24 hours in a day (I might have had just 2 hours of sleep)
    -I am still watching ...
