    rose Says:

    this is very well produced. the actors portrayed their roles very well, except for one i thought was a miscast. i was most impressed with the young actors, like they had years of acting experience. based on a novel, there was a lot of sadness but i did not find any dragging scenes which would have made me quit watching. i think they did not use a lot of artificial tears, those guys were very good! the direction and screen play are well deserving for the baeksang best drama award the drama won this year. watching successively 4-5 episodes on one day, and continuing the next days until i finished it made me more appreciative of how the series was made. congratulations to everyone involved. needless to say, it’s a 10/10!

    One of my fave kdrama aside from the fact that I’m so in love with the lead actor Kim soo hyun!i love the historic period and traditions practiced in this drama which made to be up to date By the twist in the love story. Great actors and actresses. I shed millions of tears on this kdrama. 20 episodes were not enough to fill my thirst for more of this show. Good ending that justified the very intriguing start.
