    Where you get the idea about the writer? if the actor fail no one will expose it to public, for the drama sake. If the writer really change the script it’s more make sense because the charracter more interesting to public it’s not about the actor.
    If the drama fail it’s not only because of one actor, even if all actor/actress good with the drama can’t be success, how many drama with great cast fail in rating ??? Look at drama with no popular name success like Baker king n The Chaser

    @mauricia
    yeahh..just like what I feel when watching this drama..I personally like the the storyline & their cinematography was really beautiful but it’s very sssslowwwww that makes me decide to stop watching this..If it’s moving more faster, I might love this drama to bits

    @eny
    Where did i get the idea about the writer??? if you think i making up the story and you wrong… it is true story. if you just watch QSD recently (not at 2009) most likely you don’t know ’bout this. where did i know UTW considered failed??? even the man himself knows ’bout that, in one of his interview UTW said sometimes he want to banged his head againts wall because he do not understand why people hate his acting in QSD (he must have read all those negative review at QSD forum).
    drama with no popular names got succeeded??? why not??? if the story was good and the cast acting also good there is high chance the dramas will got high ratings. back at 2009 before QSD aired UTW more popular than KNG but after the drama KNG got more fame, popularity,fans and praised here and there or with last year case LSG more popular than UTW but equator man beat K2H (proof that cast popularity alone doesn’t guarantee success).
    so back again with my question, you highly praise this drama saying the story is interesting, one of kind and different than other drama, the cinematography was so good, there is a lot beautiful scene and the cast just perfect. then why their ratings is soo low??? there has to be something wrong ’bout that right??? either is writer faults, directors faults or actor faults…

    @eka
    from what i understand about the interview you mention, i can see that many viewer make a bad comment about his acting, not many viewer see the different between not interesting charracter n bad acting. i’m not gonna figh about whose judgement right, because i read comment about his acting in QSD in one site that always update about drama, many say his actng is good as Yushin but his charracter not well written compare to KNG

    I already say about my prediction about the rating, the competitor which is I Hear your voice is unique n fresh n this drama have different story too but the theme about power n crown is done many time so not many people interested to see n I say the cinematography is good but i see many of the viewer didn’t like the camera movement which is slow, n i think i say the cast is good not perfect, i guess nobodies perfect. Sorry if you don’t agree, peace

    Btw, I really like Kim Nam Gil more than UTW ,I just regard UTW as good actor but not really follow his drama, I like KNG other drama too like Bad Guy n Shark, So I guess I’m not bias

    @eny
    same in here, sorry if my word offended you. it is funny though, why would we fight because of UTW while neither of us is fans or antis ㅠㅠ.

    I like UTW’s acting and he still looks good at 40. He may not be very handsome but he has charisma. Song Il Gook is also the same. I just started on episode 1/1 and I like it.

    LWin Says:

    The show is so slow. I can’t understand why director wanted to drag the scenes, turn the camera for so so many minutes. It can be finish with 18 episode if it is in normal speed. The story is not bad and the acting of main and supporting cast is good. At the end director killed the two main cast to finish all the tensions (very convenient; its ok because there is no way out). I like Kim Ok Bin and Uhm Tae Woong as he is my idol but I do not like this drama because it is too slow; waste of time.

    @something
    This drama will get better rating if not broadcast when IHYV at its peak??? Well, first of all this is not the only drama that compete with IHYV… how about MBC Queen of Classroom, their ratings maybe not high but they are among best 20 program.
    Second, if it is true that this drama got so low in ratings merely because IHYV then why even after IHYV ended and new drama aired, this drama still in last place???
    At the end whether one drama got high ratings or not it solely depends on the drama itself, you shouldn’t blame air time for this. Maybe this drama got failed simply because audience already get bored with these revenge theme ( KBS “Shark” theme is also revenge, so too much revenge this summer i guess.) audience love to watch drama like IHYV or Good Doctor because the theme is fresh and new (+ great actor of course) as simply as that. so there is no guarantee if this drama not compete with IHYV then they will got better ratings, because if audience really think this drama are good and worth to watch they will make some effort to watching even though they have to back and forth between IHYV and this one.

    I KNEW IT HAD TO END LIKE THAT, AFTER ALL HATE AND ALL THE CRAZY PEOPLE, I WAS EXPECTING THIS END…..THERE IS NOT ANOTHER WAY TO END THIS DRAMA, IN MY OPINION WAS A GOOD END.

    Hanako Says:

    It was a good start but a bad ending. The ending is disaster when the main actor was killed by his step brother everyone only starred no action done no emotion and rather slow in certain parts that made the drama not worth to watch. And the PM and the step brother with their cruel intention to remain powerful still lives so the story isn’t logic at all. So sorry on the whole very disappointing drama

    Jyj fan Says:

    This drama fail because it wants to be a poetry but did a very lousy
    Job at it. I like charming UTW. I chucked when they mention Kim Yu shin and Bidam from queen seon duk. He is always the poor guy who could not get his princess! Choi min su was a surprise treat. I’ve heard of him, thought he is a has been but he is still good in his craft. All the acting was ok, the palace and streets were too empty, I don’t know what the script writer and the director was thinking. The pace was awkward. It was unpleasant to sit through it. If not for the lovable actors I would have left after a few episodes.

    viandra Says:

    This drama is refer to the real history from go goryeo in su dynasty era, yeon gaesomun really killed the king just because he felt unexpected to the king’s idea.. The unhappy ending just that’s what the history wrote that actually we can’t change the past.. The story just good but the story line I agree to all the comments its too slow..

    Alot of people when watching Korea Drama they don’t follow the story line or the history of the movie. instead they look at the romance and action in the movie. I really love this story but I wouldn’t say its the best for me though. My dad and my big bro is watching it. let see what happens then.
