    Ha ji won looks too strong and assertive
    yoona is too skinny and bland
    han jimin played capital scandal already and she looks too old
    Park min yong is too cute
    Lee Yeon Hee has a wooden face

    So this actress is not soo bad. It is a good thing for the show that she is not very popular and not very cute.

    GHSforever Says:

    Thanks for saying that. I agree with you. Finally someone who said it.
    Just because some people ship him with Uee, doesn’t mean he should always do a drama with her. It seriously gets out of the hand.
    People should not judge an actress based on her prettyness.
    The drama itself should be the most interesting not the cast. Of course you can be excited because of the cast but the main focus should be the story and the acting. As for that the acting, the acting of the girl is pretty good.

    ruzz Says:

    i’ve watched ep 4…crying..crying….

  10. 135
    GHSforever Says:

    She is not that great as Ha Ji Won, Han Ji Min or Han Ga In but these actresses work in this business for quite a while, while she is new and young.
    Besides for a ROOKIE actress, her acting is not that bad especially the fighting scenes are well-made.

    kdfan Says:

    we get more details of Kangto’s past to understand his motivations. still i think it’s too extreme to kill innocent people just to catch gaksital. what a great ending to ep 4!

  12. 137
    tey Says:

    i understand why kang to so cruel at ep 3, but some idea with Kdfan(136) why must kill innocent people to catch gaksital. its too extreme for me
    but whatever he did..i give two thumb for Joo won’s acting skill..great, great

    anyhow love triangle will gonna interesting..

    now i start to watch ep 4..

  13. 138
    Luvjw Says:

    Ayunani90 Says:

    Love Joo Won so much…

  15. 140
    tey Says:

    guys i’m confused , after watched ep 4..i find that the woman (mokdan) who kang to used her to catch bridal mask actually his first love from his childhood.. and the knife is Kangto’s was gave her when their childhood.
    but mokdan thought the knife is kimura sunji as owner, also thought that kimura as his friend(first love) that separated when childhood ?? why to be like this?? is it right or i just misunderstand??

    The story getting better n better, more interesting.. so stop talking un useless about the lead actress.. just focus the story.. very very good ..at all

  16. 141
    tey Says:

    I think episode 4 is the starting point changes Kang to be a good character. he found that the conflicting feelings that mokdan is his first love and he began to suspect that gaksital is her own brother..is so hard time for him..

    once again Two thumb for joo won..he good in any character..always make us love n care to him and shin hyun joon so great here..love his acting

  17. 142
    kdfan Says:

    @tey no, mokdan does not think that shunji is the owner of the dagger. shunji was the japanese boy she met at the hospital when she was young, when he was trying to save his nanny. he knew about the dagger bec he saw mokdan praying to meet young master.

  18. 143
    tey Says:


    oooh i see.. ha ha ha ya he is japanese, how i’m so confused, thanks for remembering me.. ya i found that at ep 2..what the reason why she has friendship with sunji..
    so this is the way why kang san always try save her, right?

    i guess ep 5 will more interesting..love triangle already start..

  19. 144
    oscar Says:

  21. 146
    kdfan Says:

    @tey i dont think kangsan knows mokdan is the girl from his childhood. I think he will save anybody in danger just so happened to be mokdan.

    jelly Says:
