However, Kang To is unaware that his prey, ‘Bridal Mask’ is in fact his older brother, Lee Kang San (Shin Hyun Joon).

    Joo Won is real good for this drama comparing other dramas like Level 7 Civil Servant or Baker Kim Tak Goo..in fact all the actors in this drama were real good and Park Ki Woon who usually good in love stories with his sweet smile can really be a terror in this drama and was quite unexpected for me but overall the story was good and credit to the writer and a pity with quite a sad ending the part Mok Dan died and in fact on the whole the story was quite sad but exciting. I enjoyed the drama even though sad but at last they had their independence

    is this really worth to watch? i just started it this morning. and i can say that it has nice plot. although i really don’t watch the drama with old set up, but i think i’ll stick with it. others say that Joo Won is good in this drama. because for me i don’t like him in 7th Civil Servant. that’s why i switch to watch this Bridal Mask.. sorry for what i say… but it’s just my opinion.. peace everyone.

    After watching the whole episode of this drama,I think Gaksital is much better than Faith or Rooftop Prince.this fact is also proved by the high ratings.bt why cant ths drama b d best drama of 2012?I think tht it’s bcz of Joo Won oppa is less popular than Min Ho n Yo Chun.so,Gaksital cant beat Faith or Rooftop Prince.

    jury Says:

    @680 richard
    You are weird in here. Bridal mask is category of KBS drama which high rating in 2012 better than Nice guy, Equator man, Ohlala couple even though it’s not high as weekend drama like “Unexpected you”. And also Bridal mask is the winner in drama which has same time slot (SBS’s Ghost/ Phantom, To the beautiful you, MBC’s I do Ido, Arang and magistrate)

    I like Shunji – he seems like a nice guy and just wanted to love his Esther.
    But circumstances unfortunately turned him into a policeman.

    I like Joo Won also = he is a very good actor. I thought the actor who plays Joo Won’s brother did a great job with his acting.
