Ji Sang (Ji Sung) is a gifted seer, born with the ability to see into people’s pasts and futures. There are those who believe falsely that he has dark supernatural powers, thinking him possessed by ghosts. When he comes of age in the late Goryeo era, he becomes a scholar of divination, and a reader of geography, faces, and the like to tell fortunes — an area with much influence at the time. He eventually becomes a “king-maker,” who holds the key to a major political shift in the overthrow of Goryeo and the rise of Joseon. He help the General Lee Sung Gye (Ji Jin Hee) become the first king of the Joseon Dynasty.

Lee Jung Geun (Song Chang Ui) is Ji Sang’s rival. Hae In (Kim So Yun) is Ji Sang’s main love interest and Ban Ya (Lee Yoon Ji) is Ji Sang’s first love. (source: dramabeans)

    I think this drama is good in the sense of storyline and all, the only ‘wrong’ about this drama (why the ratings seems very low) is the Airing Schedule…

    Unfortunately, it happened to be at the same airing time of another drama which is quite famous for its ‘superstar casts’… like me, TGS vs. IMY, i quite wanted to watch IMY more because of Yoo Seung Ho (although sometimes I wanted to give up from that drama coz i am not liking where it is heading lately but, Yoo Seung Ho is so irresistible…)

    :-) just a thought…

    @clairerosean you missed some points there. Even if I Miss You is starred b idols like PC, YSH and YEH the drama’sratings are fluctuating.Recently it drops.It is not the number 1 K-drama, its Jeon Woo Chi for your info. The Great Seer have low ratings due to its slow attack. and majority of the viewers said that this is boring. Former rival drama of this one is Innocent Man which i believe is much worth to watch than this one.

    Great storyline and great acting.
    Hope more people begin watching it.
    Ji Jin Hee is great as the General.
    Kim So Yun shows her versatility in playing Hae In which is so different from her character in Prosecutor Princess.

    I want to give big applause to Ji Jin Hee-oppa. Jin Hee-oppa act unusual character on saeguk korean drama, more cheerful more handsome and more big smile for us to watch. Bravo oppa ^_^

    Wedaz Says:

    Don’t understand why this drama received low rating. I’m at episode 16, but though out the story, I did enjoyed it. So interesting to watch the conflict between characters. Perhaps due to the setting, I think not as grand as other historical drama that I have watched. Plus only a handful of ‘ stars’ and not that many well known actors played important roles. The plot is good, but the set/backdrop is bad. Really, most of scenes display inferior setting. Kudos to the scriptwriter!

    rhini Says:

    I’m a little bit confuse about the final episode. How about Lee Bang won, did he released from the jail too? and did the King know that it’s his queen who was behind the trap? after all, Did Lee bang won get his possission back as the crown prince again, because he is the beloved son of the King..
    Could someone explain it all to me…
