    Oh, Eileen—U and I are on the same page of the music! I soooo want to wring Fengba’s non-existent neck! I used to know a guy who could do what he does—lie like crazy while looking soooo innocent.
    AS FOR THE REST—
    And these guys are a blood-thirsty bunch for sure!
    Did ANYBODY besides Damdeok ever become king WITHOUT murdering somebody? Asin murders and takes the crown.
    Murong Xi murders [even if he intended to get his brother] and Murong Bao gets the crown. Maybe Asin should watch out!
    Makes you think elections are a good thing. U can stay alive if you’re voted out; so U don’t have to get murdered, at least MOST of the time.

    P. Quinones Says:

    Yak Yeong: Too bad the historical record ignores the women so much. I’d like to know what happened to Damdeok’s first wife in real life.
    SECOND TIME I WANTED TO SLAP DAMDEOK & ASNI across the mouth: she takes the arrow that was intended to take Asin out. and
    JUST LIKE A RAT MAN: Damdeok & Asnin start shedding tears. Where was all this noble feeling when she was trying to make them see reason and realigy and keep them out of war? Neither of those two rats deserved her! I’d have liked to see her walk out on BOTH of them!

    @ P. Quinones Says >>> DOYONG or first wife of tamdok does not exist in korean history ,that character is created by writter which is the same as (ku un) who was not the son of prime minister but one of the kogoryo nobles family whom imigrated to hoyan by force when kogoryo were invaded by murong (the founder of hoyan ) and grew up there.

    dazzleaz Says:

    I just can’t stand the directing of this drama. Everybody is shouting at each other, even during war. Must they speak at loudest tone every time? The battle scenes were too slow, lack of dramatic music. Not much swords fighting,but verbal war.

  14. 214
    Werty Says:

    Hilarious scene every time the Emperor of Houyon held a court meeting. He always yelling when he speaks. Houyon court meeting actually, but just a narrative of what has happen to Damduk or Goguryeo. Sometimes fun to watch sometimes boring

    kdrama freak Says:

    when can we expect to see Lee Tae Gon in tv drama again? Hopefully it will be in modern and 20 eps series? I notice he is always in long drama. Can’t wait to see his acting again.

  16. 216
    Werty Says:

    I’m rooting for the love story between Damdok and Seol Ji, not with Duyong. No chemistry between Domdok and Duyong.

  17. 217
    Doe Says:

    Anybody knows the real name in real life of the actress who played “Ari”? The Khitan lady, brother of Gurchin who died and taken care by Yeo Seokge, who became a Cheongun member?

    Delilah Says:

    Can anybody tell me which episode Sagal Hyeon and Doyeong died? The story is good but somehow too long so I skipped some of the episodes. I’m now at episode 78 and I wanna watch how they died. Please anybody?

  19. 219
    Delilah Says:

    And also can anybody tell me what happened to the queen, Yak Yeong?
