  • Took a few episodes to get good but damn!
    It took about 5 episodes for me to really get into this but wow I've been watching this all day recently. Amazing series.

    HOWEVER, just want to clarify that this is NOT historically accurate. One reviewer said (s)he learned a lot about Korea's history. While it is agreed that Jumong founded Gogeuryo, anything else besides that is speculation/there are no historical records from that time (we're ...

    Great Drama! One of my all time favorites
    This drama was just one word. Amazing characters and amazing plot. The story was deep and entertaining. Dont let the 81 episodes scare you. Each episode was amazing. I loved the fact that this is a historical drama and that many of the events actually did happen. I learned so much about Koreas history.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Love the Jumong series
    I can't say enough about this drama. I really love it.
    It's one of the best drama's I've seen.
    All the characters are great and contribute to my delight of this series.
    The music, the clothing, scenery, everything is great.
    I'm really into it, as if I were actually there.
    The day I finish the 81st episode, will be a sad day for me.
