  2. 2 : Do Says:

    wooaaa super actors, waiting the drama

  3. 3 : Umar's Mom Says:

    uncommon korean drama’s story. it sound good. 🙂

  4. 4 : Joeun Says:

    song joong ki Fighting!!

  5. 5 : Mei Says:

    First episode later! Can’t wait to watch, refreshing concept this time.. Fighting to all the cast and staff! 🙆‍♀️

  6. 6 : MaxT Says:

    I Watched the first episode and it was not my cup of tea.

    Will skip this drama…

  7. 7 : Sam Says:

    So here’s the thing; that village don’t have electricity or running water which means no hot showers; no washing machine; no indoor plumbing. No refrigeration means food will go bad by the end of the day; and everyone is to do number 1 and number 2 in the bushes at the back of the family grass hut with dirt floor. Man, imagine the smell . . . and disease.

    Did I mention no tampons? There is no industry; no agriculture; no farming is allowed. Which means no milk, yogurt, cheese and no underpants cos there are no spindles to weave fabrics.

    Life is extremely hard for people living in those conditions, I barely scratched the surface describing how hard it is.

  8. 8 : Jody Says:

    Havent watched yet, l do believe the director will use creative talents to give us all a wonderful drama.

  9. 9 : Mimi mooo Says:

    WTF ( YES, what the f***) this show has good storyline and good cast, but it loses international audience and credibility when intro sounds AND looks just like Game of Thrones! If you are going to do that give it credit. I assume/hope you got approval to copy it. Know that’s common in Asia. If you did not know intro was copied you need to hire better people.

  10. 10 : Pjs Says:

    Just try the first episode… Uffff boring and confusing, weird… Skip skip skip….

  11. 11 : Kalyasiri Tan Says:

    Really LOVE

  12. 12 : sus Says:

    I couldnt understand the story.. to bad song joong ki here.. i watch this because of him..

  13. 13 : JL De Juan Says:

    I really LOVE everything. Still beautiful even the story happend hundred years ago. Really interesting different taste of genre. Great twist of story. Not the usual Kdrama. I Love it.

  14. 14 : Boring Says:

    Fell asleep 10mins into each episode… struggling to watch… sorry to the great cast. Skipping this one.

  15. 15 : annmasae Says:

    I stuck with drama and am really enjoying it now. It was confusing at first with all the different tribes but now it’s getting interesting.
    Great to see Song Jong Ki again. I had dropped my Netflix subscription but renewed once this drama aired. Unfortunately it does not finish until September. Wish it wasn’t so spread out.

  16. 16 : VERYWORTHIT Says:

    I got bored after watching the first episode too but i gave the drama a chance and i watched it until ep 6 now AND Y’ALL THIS DRAMA IS SO INTERESTING I HAVE TO PAUSE WHILE WATCHING BECAUSE MAN, MINDBLOWN. GIVE THIS DRAMA A CHANCE Y’ALL. YOU WONT REGRET IT.

  17. 17 : John Says:

    thumb down, it’s not as interesting as advertisement

  18. 18 : Kmc Says:

    Don’t know why so much negatives about this drama. I think it’s a great story and the casts did a great job on their roles. Can’t wait to watch it everyday on Netflix. Love the drama. 😊😍👏🏼👍

  19. 19 : nyrath Says:

    can’t wait next ep

  20. 20 : wafa Says:

    ya’ll need to stop judging the book by its cover! the story gets very very griping after few episodes just like GOT AND IM SO HOOKED TO THIS DRAMA

  21. 21 : sueanna Says:

    Don’t judge a drama, if you watch for 10 minutes or first episode only. This drama have amazing plot and interesting genre. Give it a try, every each episode becoming so much intense and interesting!! The plot unpredictable, make u look forward to next episode. So far, overall this drama is great! Highly recommended!!

  22. 22 : Marlexis Says:

    Hi Everyone,
    I am a University student doing currently my dissertation on how Korean tv drama influences potential tourists to visit Korea. I would be glad, if you could complete my questionnaire. It takes around 5 minutes to complete. Thank you and I appreciate it in advance. Please share it with other drama fans 😊
    https://uclan.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ahCGa6yzYRyDtYh

    p.s. I’m not sure why some dont like this drama, I liked it from the very 1st episode. Maybe its a preference

  23. 23 : Namshin3 Says:

    @Marlexis done answering your questionnaire. Good Luck!

  24. 24 : Miss Nanah Amah Says:

    I am finding it hard to continue this drama after his news but will continue because of Tagon and Tanya lol .

  25. 25 : N Says:

    I thought it’s gonna be boring BUT I’M WRONG! Y’all should watch this. Now I can’t wait for the next episodes to come out. 😁

  26. 26 : Kay Says:

    Arthdal Chronicles is one of my most anticipated dramas this year. It looks epic with an awesome cast and intriguing story. I can’t wait to check it out!

  27. 27 : Eunsom Says:

    “Game of Thrones” without the debauchery, incest, tits and bums.

  28. 28 : Victoria Says:

    This is a great drama so far, give it a try. Its a little confusing at first but it gets better once you start to process the tribes and everything going on.

  29. 29 : Randiticus Says:

    This is a GREAT series. Ok, I live in the U.S. and I have to read the subs, but with acting like this I don’t care. The story line is great with multiple twists that you can not see coming, then you feel kinda stupid realizing you should have seen it coming. I have seen alot of comparisons to GOT and other fantasies, but I do not see why people are comparing something so different. Nevertheless, I do hope people will give it a try and leave expectations at the door. Enjoy it for what it is and don’t be upset when it is not GOT season whatever!

  30. 30 : Fauzi Says:

    Im waiting for this dramaaa

  31. 31 : -Autumn- Says:

    The story is confusing but is a great drama too. I have hooked on it and can’t wait for the next episode. It keeps me in suspense at the ending which has made me to continue to watch the next episode, sacrificing my sleep. I agreed that the story is a bit confusing especially those character names. I have to read the episode write up to understand better. The season 3 has to wait till Sept. Ugh, I am so anticipated for the ending. I want to know what happened in the end. Are Eunseom and Tan Ya together? Did they successfully brought down Tagon’s power and united the Aseudal nation?

  32. 32 : pia Says:

    i just discover about this drama .. already watched in in 2 days epi 1-10..haha.. what can I say very interesting ! cant way for epi 11/12 on 6/7 july then wait for sept…. I like eun som more than saya.. hope last part of the drama , eun sum will be more air time!!!

  33. 33 : hermannie Says:

    This drama is still on going. Why was it included in the recently concluded category?

  34. 34 : Fado Revere Says:

    Song Joong Ki’s whisper voice (as Tagon’s son) is over the top when others are speaking normally in the scene. I fear I might go mad before the end of this drama.

    I’ve loved Kim Ji Won since her High Kick days. She’s put on weight here . . . still lovely . . . I wondered if she might be a new mother. She practically had no drama appearances in 2018 save a cameo in Mr. Sunshine.

  35. 35 : marianne Says:

    One of the best kdramas ever. SJK is really good in choosing his project. All of the aspects of this drama is very well done and very realistic and jaw dropping.

  36. 36 : Jaline Gilioti Says:

    I loved Arthdal ​​Chronicles. Since the day I saw about the launch on Netflix. I’m Brazilian, and that makes us see all kinds of dramas. Kdramas are fabulous. the history and culture embedded in the series is interesting. For us Christians who know the beginning of things. Knowing a bit more how the birth of another nation is based and its culture is totally interesting. And, Soong Joong Ki is really beautiful! Cheering for Eun Sum and Tan Ya (Eunseom and Tanya, in Portuguese). Already anxious for part 3 that will only be in September (crying). ♥️♥️

  37. 37 : Olayemi Says:

    Hello, I am Nigerian, Arthdal chronicles is the best Korean drama I have seen. I love the fact that the plot and storyline is quite different from the regular ones. Kudos to all the casts and producers, thank you for such a wonderful drama, please I need more of this. I cant wait for season 3.

  38. 38 : N Says:

    I’m already done with episode 12. I seriously can’t wait for the rest of the episodes to come out! It’s already so good! When will September come :<

    The ratings should rise higher when they release it on September!

  39. 39 : Sarah Says:

    Excelente drama lo ví en solo dos días, ya espero los siguientes episodios para septiembre, sé que existimos diferentes expectadores, pero denle chance si la verdad si esta muy buena la serie, ah sido algo muy diferente a lo que eh estado acostumbrada a ver en dramas coreanos, es muy adictiva por eso sí recomiendo que a los que no les pareció le den un chance más .
    Song joong ki es impresionante como interpreta ambos papeles, me ah impresionado más que en sus papeles anteriores, gran actor, Todos en general.

  40. 40 : Angel Ndi Says:

    This is sooo original. The first episodes might bore you but the twist is unimaginable. I watched it because of the cast and ended up loving it sooo much. Now i can’t wait for part 3 of it. This is literal torture. Where part 2 ended almost killed me for real.

  41. 41 : rima Says:

    i love this drama is great and cool and the Story and they actors are cool and i wsih it end with happy end not bad :);)

  42. 42 : JEREMIAH YOMBO Says:

  58. 58 : Gea Nendra Alinka Says:

    when the 19th episode aired ?

  59. 59 : titawells Says:

    do they have plans to produce and continue this series?
    This has a great storyboard, hoping for it to continue…

  60. 60 : Dana B Bradley Says:

    I’m waiting for a continuation. It is really entertaining and i hope that there is another one.

  61. 61 : Mari Says:

    I am waiting for the continuation also. And the waiting is killing me. This is one awesome drama. Kudos to the writers, director and actors.👍💖.

  62. 62 : bdn9385 Says:

    The idea of second coming terrifies the elites to their bones so they would not allow this kind of drama to continue. Further, the analogy of this story is very close to portraying the true coming of Christ which the elites have been trying so hard to hide from the public.

    The Games of Thrones is another good way of telling about the coming of Christ in the person of Jon Snow but they would not allow him to become the King he should become but instead, they would want a replacement of Jon Snow in the form of Bran Stark and Sansa alongside which is like the representation of Rome or Queen Elizabeth of Britain; A religious monarchy.

    So I guess this korean drama is something that actually concludes Eun Sum and Tanya to be the heroes of this drama and this two actually represents The Son of Man (the chosen one of God) and the Tanya her bride or the church of God. Tagon is actually like Nimrod or Lucifer or the dajjal or the Antichrist.

    Unless they pattern the ending of this korean drama to the one similar to Games of Thrones, they will never allow this to continue. The elites are very afraid to this kind of plot in any movie or series because this is what God declares and the elites are in total disagreement with it.

  63. 63 : Resty Says:

    This is not kind drama like Usual…This is so goood, And i am wondering how many part it will be? I finish 3 parts in a strike..
    Damn now im dying.
