Lee Kang To (Joo Won), the younger brother, is a rising star in the police force and works with the Japanese police to capture ‘Bridal Mask’ a mysterious freedom fighter who fights for independence wearing a traditional Korean bride’s mask. However, Kang To is unaware that his prey, ‘Bridal Mask’ is in fact his older brother, Lee Kang San (Shin Hyun Joon).

    it’s an action-packed ep 1. i like the fast pace of how the story is unfolding. and i like the era, it’s fun and the costumes are sharp. the dog ahjussi from Dummy Mommy is the dummy brother! and oh..oh.. i think i know who gaksital is when they did a close up on the masked face. which i think is why Joowon then took over and became gaksital!very interesting!

    tey Says:

    Daebak..got high rating, i hope it will more higher for next ep.

    ep 1 was amazing and very interesting, full packed action..
    joo won doing the best here..no doubt for his skill..amazing..he can play good any character even that antagonist he always make everyone fall in love.
    i guess gaksital is his brother..and joo won will take over after his brother death? as gaksital? cant wait for next ep..ha ha ha

    try to watch it 15 mins…..I think it’s not my prefered…continue I DO,I DO sajalah…

  20. 70
    swift Says:

    I think the writers have put too many love interest for the leading lady, I can see at least 4 guys, Kang To, Kang To’s older brother, Kang To’s best friend and the leading lady’s young master.

  21. 71
    Micc Says:

    I am a little confused. In episode one, was the guy with the mask Kang To’s brother?

  22. 72
    Micc Says:

    In the above synopsis, “Lee Kang To appears to be outwardly dim”, shouldn’t that be Lee Kang San?

  23. 73
    kdfan Says:

    @swift was Kangsan interested in the leading lady? I didnt notice this part in the show. i think the young master and Kangto are the same person.

    @Micc yes i think the masked guy Gaksital is Kangsan pretending to be mentally challenged to hide his secret identity.

  24. 74
    KDaddict Says:

    I just watched the 5 min highlights. The action sequences r fantastic. Looks interesting. Will wait another week to catch 4 eps together, so that it won’t be confusing, as many of you said.
    I think JW takes over as superhero when his brother dies. And then there is the girl to protect, isn’t there?

  25. 75
    Micc Says:

    Yea, I think the young master and Kang To is the same person.
    And KDaddict, it’s smart to wait and watch more episodes together.

  26. 76
    GHSforever Says:

    It is obvious that Kang To and the young master are the same person. I don’t think that the leading lady likes Kang San, I would rather say that she admires hiim as a person.
    In the second episode I can’t believe that Kang To tormented Mok Dan and even slapped her in the first episode. But I like the fact that our hero is not a ‘perfect’ man but has a past history.

    admin Says:

    Micc (72),

    We just updated the synopsis. Please take a look.

  28. 78
    swift Says:

    When I mentioned love interest of the leading lady, I meant that there will be four guys interested with her but she will only be looking for the young master which I guess might be Kang To’s brother.

  29. 79
    swift Says:

    Kang To’s friend is looking for Ester who is actually the lead lady. My guess is that four guys will end up liking her. If my guess is right, the young master is Kang To’s older brother.

  30. 80
    tey Says:

    @ micc
    same idea w/ u , i guess he is Kang To’s brother act as gaksital and
    Lee Kang To will take aver as gaksitar after his bro dies.

  31. 81
    tey Says:

    @micc @ swift @Kdadict@kiky

    guys..so glad find you here..lets give support for our handsome Joo won ,
    his act i think will more adorable here..no more doubt for his acting skill..

    kdfan Says:

    @tey wave wave
    @swift i just finished ep 2. Now i know what u mean about Kangsan being one of the guys liking Mokdan. But i still think the young master is Kangto bec the screen always zooms in on the knife whenever there is Kangto scene with Mokdan but there is also a possibility that it is Kangsan.

  36. 86
    tey Says:

    im curious who is the man who come to Kangto’s Father died ceremony..??
    is he Kangto’s father still live?? or who??

    kdfan Says:

    the enemy mentioned that when they assassinated kangto’s father, one of his subordinate who was a trained soldier survived and got away. possibly he was the one who was at the memorial service..

  41. 91
    swift Says:

    But why is it that person who was at Kang To’s father memorial looked similar to Kang To’s fatcher???

  42. 92
    tey Says:

    ya look like Kang To’s father, if not him why he came to KT father memorial, what for? but still not sure too..better just wait the next episode.who is he

  43. 93
    kdfan Says:

    Really? I did not see the face clearly.. Hmm n the mystery thickens..

  44. 94
    thao Says:

    well, first of all, the beginning is perfect done and the lead hero and heroine are not disapointed us at all. i love both characters potraying just like that

  45. 95
    Alexandra Says:

    agree with thao..just happy for the perfect beginning, action looking good, and joo won doing so well..

  46. 96
    Lee12 Says:

    i just disappointed for lead actrees.. not well known and not quite pretty.. i think uee more better than her

  47. 97
    Lee12 Says:

    but i will stay watch bridal mask, joo won doing so well here. after he did well at Baker king & ojak brother, curious , how well he is in action drama. !!!

  48. 98
    Ruzz Says:

    try to watch next week

  49. 99
    swift Says:

    Anticipate that this drama will focus mostly on the Koreans retaliating against the Japs and in the midst of that there will be conflicts of love (love triangle) interest of the lead lady with the Kang To and his best friend.

  50. 100
    tey Says:

    i guess so..it will be conflicts (love triangle) between Kang To & kimura sunji & the woman (mokdan)..it will be HOT conflicts, right??

    @Lee 12
    to be honest, i dont like the lead actress too..:) but let go it..forget the lady just focus to the story & Joo won, im sure joo won able to bring this drama to the Top, no doubt
