  12. 12 : Annie Says:

    I’ve been waiting for this series to air at KBS, unfortunately I missed the first 5 episodes (thanks to the previous drama “Several Questions that Make us Happy” :c) oh well…are the episodes complete at veoh.com? Are they English subtitled? I’m currently watching the first 5 eps. at DailyMotion, and I could not understand a single word that they say bec. they are in Chinese subtitles!!!:(

    I just hope this will be available in the Philippines…

  13. 13 : bla Says:

    kang-ji-hwan is superb in this series.. he is in a different league compare to his co-actors in this drama. he managed to be funny and very effective i delivering his lines while maintaining the seriousness of his role.

    I can say he is now the current best actor korea must be proud of, very excellent drama actor. I wish him luck to his career..

    you guys, should watch this drama, simply bcoz of his flawless acting.

  14. 14 : loulai Says:

    to annie, the episodes at veoh.com are english subtitled under the publisher lyptica but currently up to episode 12 only. i’ve been waiting patienly for the next episodes and its worth watching.

    i first watched kang ji hwan at Fireworks, but i just loved how he protrayed his role here ..serious or funny!

  15. 15 : Annie Says:

    ok, I saw it already…can’t wait to watch the next episodes… I agree with you Loulai, despite its underrated status in its own homeland the series is worth watching ü I like the way the plot is presented, because the comedy behind contrasts with the story’s gloomy setting…astig sobra!!!

  16. 16 : Annie Says:

    I noticed that eps. 13 onwards are not yet uploaded at veoh…are there other sites that stream the rest of these episodes? Sorry, I can’t help but not to wait any longer…although I’m still watching it at KBS World ü
    After watching ep. 11 last night, I became more interested in the romance bet. Suhyeon and Song Ju…and I was actually a bit surprised to learn that Suhyeon is the mysterious leader of the assassin group. I mean, I’m glad that he has’nt given up his ideals yet despite becoming a Jap official…I just felt disappointed to know in advance what happened to Song Ju..(gosh, I’m really into this drama!!!)

  18. 18 : Thafinest1 Says:

    I second what bla says!

    Kang Ji Hwang is so so wonderful in this series! I absolutely LOVE him here! I’ve never seen him in anything before eventhough I am a kdrama regular. But this role is made for him! It would not surprise me at all when he EXPLODES in the Asian market. He’s up there for me along with Uhm Tae Woong!!!

  19. 19 : Lyda Says:

    I just watch this drama last nite. And see that it is interesting. I started like like this drama more and more. It is comedy, romantic, mystery ..really good watching. Wan is so handsome. He got small small eyes like a criket. But I am so scare of him when he get angry. He shouts very loudy. I will be die if he yell to me like this. N Miss Na hahah is fit with him. She is so beautiful. At first, I think she is Lee Da Hae but when I look carefully, it is not Lee Da Hae. Hhahah I would recommend you guy to watch this Scandal in Seoul.

  20. 20 : Lyda Says:

    Oh and Miss Na if she do more make up, she will look more beautiful than this.

  21. 21 : Lyda Says:

    The sound track of this drama is also nice, not bad!!!!! I am looking to download it!!!

  22. 22 : Lyda Says:

    But I haven’t understand the whole story yet, can anyone tell me more? Y wan hate officer…so much? And the lady who own her organization…? y she need to do that? And Inho..is he a brother of Miss Na…? I just watch it for two time. what is the complict??

  23. 23 : ika Says:

    lyda… i’l try to answer your questions

    Wan hates officer Su Hyeon because he thinks su hyeon is responsible for the death of wan’s older brother. Song Joo, the lady, doesn’t own the organization, she’s just a member of it. as to why she entered, i forgot already, but i think it has something to do with Su hyeon. inho is not the brother of miss na, he is her student in her night classes.
    hope i was able to answer your questions… :)

    i just started watching this drama. it is really good. i like kang ji hwan’s character, wan. ji hwan’s acting is really good. hope everyone will watch this drama.

  24. 24 : Lyda Says:

    Thanks ika for answering my question. Yes, offer Su Hyeon. I forgot his name. And the lady name..what is her name??actullay I remember only Wan, who is really a handsome guy and Miss Na. hahahhaha.

    What esp is on KBS right now??I don’t no. But now Wan seems to like offer Su Hyeon…… I wonder wan love Miss na or another lady who is the student who want to go aboard with him…?She is no good!!Miss Na is better.

  25. 25 : Annie Says:

    Hi Lyda!

    The lady’s name is Cha Songju, a courtesan by day (and night?) and a secret independence fighter. She’s also the love interest of Officer Suhyeon ü. And the lady who likes Wan to go abroad? Nah, don’t mind her, she’s just an extra to the love affair of Ms. Na and Wan, hehe ü Wan is just faking to like that girl so that he can help with the organization.
    Right now in the Philippines it’s on the 14th episode on KBS World ü.

  26. 26 : Rowena Says:

    This is a very insteresting series. I am on episode 10 already. KJW and HJM is an unlikely couple, but there is magic in their chemistry. KJW is getting to be more good looking in every series that he stars with. I last saw him in 90 days. He made me cry. Here, he makes me laugh at his antics most of the time. He’s versatile in his own right.

  27. 27 : lyda Says:

    Wan was hit by a bad person. I watched last nite on KBS world. Will he die or not?

  28. 28 : juju Says:

    This drama gets better by the episode. Loved the acting. All the leads are great actors. Kang Ji Hwan rocks!

  29. 29 : Annie Says:

    To Lyda,

    What do you think? ü Sorry, I don’t want to spoil you, so just keep watching…I just have to say that something sad will really happen…Just finished watching ep.15 last night, and I think this is the gloomiest episode. I just have to keep my over-all comments for the meantime until I finish the last ep.

  30. 30 : Lyda Says:

    So sad so sad Cha song joo is shoot. I cannot complain inhno because what he has done is just want to protect his sister. This show us that before we want to help sb, we have to help ourself first. I think he is doing the right thing. But what happend next?what will be the end of this drama? so sad~~~Cha song joo die. She shouldn’t die like this. She is a good person…..

  31. 31 : ayong Says:

    i love his drama capital scandal.it was the best.it had comedy,drama,mystery,thriller,romance,murder,etc.i stayed up till 2′o clock in the morning to watch every episode.i fell for him at first sight.I LOVE CAPITAL SCANDAL-IT IS THE BEST DRAMA!!!!!!

  32. 32 : Annie Says:

    Tomorrow evening in KBS world will be the last episode…it would be a sad goodbye for me with this drama, because this is ONE of the best kdramas I’ve watched, and I’m surely going to miss this…I’ve been getting good reviews for this (and I’m still looking out for more)…apparently the show kicked off with high ratings when Songju got killed, so Songju’s death, I might say, had redeemed the drama ü

  33. 33 : Queen Says:

    This drama rocks!!! I love it!!! It has a mixture of comedy, drama and action. I recommend other people to watch it… I like all the characters especially Han Ji Min… Hehehe…

  34. 34 : Muugii Says:

    oh, i love this drama. for now it would be my No1. No2 Full house.
    I loved in this drama all leading actors, but i most liked character of Lee Su Heon and Cha Song Ju. and the chemistry between them is awesome and very mature.
    I recommend to all. MUST SEE DRAMA.
    I would rate 10 out 10.
    Costumes, story, leading as well as villian and support cast brilliant.

  36. 36 : HannyBae Says:

    Is this drama really good? the cover look weird. But since there’re so many positive comments, I’ll watch it!

  37. 37 : kwakwak Says:

    wow! people in every website i go to likes CAPITAL SCANDAL. although i haven’t watched any part of it, i have included it on every of my top favorite drama lists. is it really good?! o i think so, but i think i should have my own copy of it. is it for general public viewing?!

  38. 38 : Lyda Says:

    Yeach~~ it is quiet interesting!! you all should watch it. The OST of this drama are all good should download and listen to them. Ok??The link is

    http://ejji03.multiply.com/music/item/2190

  39. 39 : kwakwak Says:

    well, it is a good news if it is really for general public viewing. the photos are really weird and makes it look like very DARK and for “adult theme”. but since many people are saying that it is really good, i think i should NOT miss it!! i will NOT miss it..

  40. 40 : Lyda Says:

    Hi Kwakwak I just noticed about what u said, the photo. I think it is weird too. They seem …… it is very difficult to say but I hope u understand. Hahahah

  41. 41 : nova from indonesia Says:

    basicly it”s a good story, diffrent from any other series i ever watch. but i dont like the setting of this series, is not feel real and i dont the ending because one of the woman caracter died, the series would been better if only the woman not died.

  42. 42 : pandabear104 Says:

    simple question………..is it worth my time. looks interesting enough but not sure if i would be satisfied.

  43. 43 : PS Says:

    It answer pandabear104’s question, it is definitly worth watching. This drama in set during Korea’s 40 years rule under Japan. Kang Ji Hwan act as a rich playboy who boast to his friends that he can woo any girl in the city. So they made a bet for him to woo the most conservative girl in the city acted by Han Ji Min. It is absolutely funny!!

  44. 44 : hhs Says:

    It’s a comedy series . . worth watching. My 1st show from this era (40’s). Mr Kang Ji Hwan & Ms Han Ji Min – a comical pair in this series..

  45. 45 : Hollywood Says:

    I caught a glimpse on one of the episode. Unfortunately, it was the part where the lady at the club got killed. I did not care too much for sad ending or action drama/movies.
    Too much fighting or killing, violence is not my forte.
    I like Kang Ji Hwan in Be Strong Guem Soon.

    I give this a try since you guys loves it.

  46. 46 : Elmer Says:

    I love this drama 😉

    Great drama.

    Greate costumes of kang ji wan! esp. the hat! 😉

    highly recommeded!

  47. 47 : krissyang Says:

    This is definitely worth watching. The two leads, KJW & HJM, are an unlikely pair but with their superb acting, great comic timing and chemistry, they managed to pull it off! The other two leads are fabulous actor and actress too… Definitely one of the better shows recently…

  48. 48 : grace Says:

    this drama is one of the best this year..

  49. 49 : grace Says:

    i can say that CS is one of the best drama i ever saw this year…weeee what nice genre

  50. 50 : Hollywood Says:

    I finished watching this series, not bad. Funny and very entertaining. However, not as captivating as some other dramas.

  51. 51 : SUNG YU RI Says:

    I REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE THIS DRAMA!!!!!!!!
    CAPITAL SCANDAL MAKES ME FEEL EVERYTHING, LAUGH AND CRY.
    ESPECIALLY FOR KANG JIHWAN, I THINK HE IS THE BEST ACTOR, HE CAN MAKE LAUGH N MAKE ME CRY AND OF COURSE MAKE MY HEART JUMP EVERYTIME I SEE HIM. FOR ME, THIS IS THE BEST DRAMA I EVER SEE.
    CAPITAL SCANDAL FIGHTING!!!!!!!
    KANG JI HWAN OPPA…….SARANGHAEEEEE

  52. 52 : aynur Says:

    Wow!!! Amazing mix of drama & independence movement. One if the best.

  53. 53 : pocholo Says:

    I want to share with you who I think should have won the major awards for last year’s kdramas. I managed to see a couple of year-end award ceremonies done by the major networks but I don’t agree with most of their choices. I know those awards are mostly self-serving so I think my choices would be much fairer considering I have to make the choices on all the networks’ output instead of just one. Admittedly, my choices are also only based on the ones I managed to see but I’ve seen a lot last year that’s why I have the confidence to dish out my own version of kdrama awards for 2007. One more thing I want to add is that my choices are based on dramas that are only 24 episodes or less. I don’t have the will or the patience to sit through those 50plus episode dramas, so no Jumongs or Jewel in the Palace for me. Some of you would probably not agree with these choices but here they are:

    Best Supporting Actor: Kim Gab Soo in When Spring Comes
    I have seen him in three dramas last year but here is where he excelled the most. Playing a sleazebag, con-artist but modern-day robin hood, lovable rouge of a dad, he managed to be convincing in the two-sided role. He gave a memorably touching performance in one the court scenes in this drama.

    Best Supporting Actress: Moon So Ri in Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi
    Thanks to reincarnation, most of the leads here had to play two roles and Moon So Ri was good in both of hers. Playing a bloodthirsty, fight-hungry warrior in the first episode she then turned into a calm and collected priestess in the rest of the drama. Her acting was so surprisingly understated which I find refreshing to see in a Korean drama.

    Best Actor: Park Shin Yang in War of Money
    What made War of Money so compelling was that the lead actor played his role with great aplomb. Park Shin Yang has treated us, the viewers, with respect by giving us his all. He’s in almost all the scenes or he’s never far away. The scene in which he was hysterically trying to get all the coins his mother’s thrown on a shrine was really moving.

    Best Actress: Lee Mi Yeon in Crazy for You
    The drama would have wallowed in the mire of soap fodder if not for the acting skills of this woman. She is such a classy actress in the mold of Jeon Do Yeon, Lee Young Ae and Kim Jeung Eun. Was it just me or has everyone already known this? I only ever saw her in one film, Typhoon, and that was such a thankless role. In here she was outacting everyone in sight. This actress doesn’t even need lines. All she has to do is close her eyes, shed a tear and we could already feel her pain. Understated yet powerful acting, very impressive.

    Best Drama: Scandal in Old Seoul
    This drama didn’t get the audience it deserved because it began when War of Money was already halfway thru its run. I have a soft spot for comedy and this kdrama has really caught my imagination. Some of you might probably think this was a safe, wholesome, fun but not challenging drama. But did you know that it’s tougher to do a comedy than a drama? What I like about this drama was that it was a period piece that isn’t set in the Joseon dynasty. If that isn’t tough enough for the producers then turning it into a comedy certainly has. If there’s an award for casting directors then I’d dish one out for whoever’s responsible in getting the cast. It was simply bang spot on! Everyone suited their roles, from the leads to the minor players. This drama has given the viewers a rollercoaster ride of fun, laughter, a few tears with action and suspense thrown in. That, with all those elements, the drama actually worked was short of miraculous. There’s was a movie last year that did their promotional photos in tribute to this drama. If that isn’t a big nod of approval then I don’t what is.

  54. 54 : stellar Says:

    This drama is really special. Watching it, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll worry, you’ll feel suspense, you’ll anticipate, you’ll cheer… You’ll do all these & more…

  55. 55 : pinl Says:

    yeah, i agree that this is one of the best drama 😉

  56. 56 : JimWang Says:

    I can not agree with Pocholo pick on response #53. It is ridiculous for “Capital Scandal” to be the best drama of 2007. It disappoints me a lot. It is a waste of time watching and waste of money buying the DVD.

    People say that this is a comedy, but it is not funny at all. The guys in the show acted like they were having fun but that all for the comedy part. Nothing can really make people laugh. A good comedy is that actors are not laughing but the audience are laughing.

    The best comedy for 2007 should be “I Am Sam”. If you want to laugh out loud and have a good time, go watch “I Am Sam” for the second time. And the best drama for 2007, of course, is Bae Yong-jun and his fantastic drama “The Legend: Tae Wang Sa Sin Gi”. If people watched “The Four Gods of the King” and said that they did not like it. I would consider them crazy.

  57. 57 : pocholo Says:

    To Jim Wang: I liked ‘I am Sam’ a lot! Told you, I have a soft spot for comedy. I like the fact that KBS is more daring in commissioning original and unpredictable dramas. You wouldn’t see a drama like that in MBC, never mind SBS. But like the other quirky KBS drama ‘Evasive Inquiry Agency’ that I enjoyed, ‘I am Sam’ isn’t quite there yet, if you know what I mean. I don’t want to start pointing out what’s wrong with both these dramas lest KBS stop venturing into these type of dramas on the basis of less-than-impressive ratings. Yes, I’m afraid, Jim, that you and I are in the minority. Don’t think even the people who share their opinions in koreandrama.org would be heaping praises for ‘I am Sam’ either(or am I wrong?). Anyhow, can I also suggest that you give ‘Capital Scandal’ another go? I don’t want to go on again about what I think about this drama except that this is one of the few dramas that wholly works. I chanced upon koreavision.wordpress.com recently and they mentioned the top kdramas for last year. It was ‘War of Money’ for SBS, the ‘Legend’ for MBC and ‘Capital Scandal’ for KBS. I think they got it just about right.

    I loved the ‘Legend’ so much that I refuse to slag it off unlike my Korean seonsaengnim who laughed at the sight of Bae Young Jun looking like Gandalf at the very first episode. Jim, you have to admit that the Lord of the Rings has been a big inspiration for this drama. My Korean language classmate even said the battle scenes are reminiscent of BenHur(I said sorry, too young to remember that) and rehashed Star Wars’ Darth Vader(well, at least, I could vaguely remember that). The producers’ imagination has ran amok and has thrown everything in from everybody else’s book but they all seem to work because, hey, I was hooked!!! But if you make ‘ME’ choose between the three dramas above I’ve already said who I’d go for. I think Capital Scandal is funny(contentious to you, I know), classy, but most importantly, original.

  58. 58 : JimWang Says:

    to Pocholo:
    It is always enjoyable to read your comments here. I have a couple of questions. What kind of language is that in koreavision.wordpress.com? And something is wrong with their top dramas of last year.

    The three TV networks give out the end of the year awards every year. However, the awards are given to the stars only, not to the people work behind the scenes. That is why it is called ‘the Performance Awards’. The awards are given to best actor/actress, new stars or old stars. They don’t give awards to individual dramas, directors, writers, musians, etc.

    Please check in the soompi.com. Check the articles dated around 12/30/2007 for ‘KBS 2007 Performance Awards’. You will also find the awards for SBS and MBC too.

    this drama rocks!!!!!!!

  60. 60 : jangerr Says:

    This is most definitely one of the best dramas for 2007!!! Kang Ji Hwan & Ha Ji Min are so cute together – they have such great chemistry. Best of all is the storyline which is so original. Not the typical love triangle or square that you see in kdramas…

  61. 61 : mulan Says:

    I enjoy reading various comments. Have a nice day to all of you.

  62. 62 : eevee Says:

    one word for this drama: priceless!

  63. 63 : drama queen Says:

    A drama thats in a way a waste of time. It was ok in a way but not really that good that would worth your time, the girl lead is really not convincing, the male lead is really good well dress, support was better.

    All in all i would not recommend this drama. I give it a ** out of ******

    X.O.X.O.

  64. 64 : Cindy Says:

    I am still watching this drama and so far, I am enjoying it! Does anyone know the song that Kang Ji Hwan sang on the stage of the cafe when he was feeling drunk and sad?

    Such a nice song! Thanks in advance!

  65. 65 : mingky Says:

    I love Kang Ji Hwan so much. This is another good drama of his. He is so cute. I just love him.

  66. 66 : Goong Ju Says:

    It was an average drama. Storyline was quite normal & simple but i enjoyed it. KANG JI HWAN’s acting was awsome. I watched many of his dramas before & i think this drama was his best work so far. Love Ryu JIN’s acting too. Anyway bravo for all the casts

  67. 67 : dovejewel Says:

    i have watched exactly 25 kdramas and none of them could surprise, make me laugh, or change moods as well as Capital Scandal could. And i agree with SUNG YU RI… Kang Ji Hwan is AWESOME!!!!

  68. 68 : stellar Says:

    I really, really love this show… KJH & HJM may not be the best looking thespians but they are definitely very good in acting & have excellent comic timing. The rest of the cast was superb too! All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable show!!!

  69. 69 : Imay Says:

    I like the storyline, though I think its a simple love story in revolution era but it has a few surprises towards the ending.
    KJH played very good maybe because the role suited him well, but I dont know.. its kinda weird for me seeing him coupled with HJM. The other roles are also good. I’ve specially fond of Han Go Eun’s, she’s really good.
    Overall its a good and enjoyable drama.

  70. 70 : Lumi Says:

    I liked that this drama is different from most. It does have its flaws, but it is very entertaining. Love Ryu Jin. Always a fine actor.

  71. 71 : Meeky_Girl Says:

    the story line is good and i like the character of Kang Ji Hwan in this drama..he is so cute~ however, i dont reli like the match btw KJH and HJM..they just dont match at all…tat is the disappointing part in this drama…HJM is too short and petite to pair up with KJH…looks weird~

  72. 72 : ct Says:

    Love this drama! All the leads were superb!

    Kang Ji Hwan is definitely in his elements here with his excellent comic timing. Han Ji Min is simply adorable. And despite what some have said, they may seem like an odd couple with the big difference in height but they were definitely convincing together…

    Ryu Jin, as usual, is in fine form. His acting is almost flawless. Last but not least, Han Go Eun is smouldering here…

  73. 73 : ST Says:

    I love this drama. Watched it so many times. I love the soundtrack too.

  74. 74 : whimpq Says:

    ermm.. after i read these comments then only i realized the ‘height factor’ that made some of you dissatisfy.. i watched few times but just cant see it.. seems like their chemistry had successfully cover the weakness before my eyes.. hehe i recommend

  77. 77 : d.kamsah Says:

    I agree about Kang Ji Hwan’s performance. He have excellent talent that never found in other actors. He can translete his role as well with his varrious expression, face, eyes, and body language. And I have difficulty to compare him with other because he is a few actor who can act in varrious genre with velocity as his role. Not only talking about his face or perfect body, for this reason, the analysts will see from other view, and its very trouble if public in Korean can’t see it. His movie’s and dramas absolutely have strong idea and storyline too. So I will ask how come? How Korean’s view to see it. I suggest to his producer and management to promote him in abroad (MUST BE TRY) . He will more be accepted by audiences. Not only in triangle country japan-Korean-China, but more larger areas like Asian country at all to prove it. Kang Ji Hwan, you are brilliant, so do best and work harder. I a m sure will be success, you have uniqeness as difference. Hope we can see your show in my country, Indonesia. Ciao!!

    I saw Kang Ji Hwan for the first time in this drama. He’s super cool and great looking guy!!! Man, I hope I can see his other drama as well.
    Both KJW & Ryu Jin are looking really great in this drama ^o^

  79. 79 : faye Says:

    I really love KANG JI HWAN. I had watched this drama last April 30, 2010. I hope i could also have a love class with him! haha..I envy Na Yeo Kyung when she hugged and kissed Kang Ji hwan! I love you Kang Ji hwan! I hope we got to see you live here in Philippines! Jiayou, hong gil dong! Saranghae sun woo wan!

    i wanna watvh this..

  85. 85 : nikky_p_28 Says:

    Wow!!! I was backtracking KDrama listing like crazy, looking for one particular KANG JI HWAN’s drama profiles. I was stalking this guy who shot an arrow though my heart after watching his excellent performance as HONG GIL DONG, thus I found his previous CAPITAL SCANDAL drama, a drama he starred in right before HGD. So with my 5 days off, I barricaded and confined myself in my apartment like a cave woman to satisfy my curiosity. And oh boy! did he delivered! I can’t believed I’ve never seen this guy before in any of the drama I’ve watched. He is so talented! He has probably the most powerful expressive eyes I’ve ever seen. And when he smiles, sigh!!! you get this warm fuzzy feeling permeates your whole being. I never tried drugs, but this must be it. It induces such strong reactions from you that you want it again and again. Not to mention his good looks and charms is only icing on the cake. What got me the most is the velocity of his acting, He can switch from drama to comedy in a blink of an eye with no effort at all. He got me carried away and brought me to his LA LA LAND in a good way, that I forgot a world exist for a moment. The scene between him and Ryu Jin as Soo Hyun got me crying 2X!! I would have never dreamt that a bromance between these 2 would reduce me to tears, but they had me bawling my eyes out. A 2 sided love story set in the early 30’s in the middle of a politically charged era. It was so light hearted that the politics become secondary in the story. It was more of the story of their lives that got affected by the revolution. These 4 characters were delivered beautifully with amazing chemistry between all the casts. I can’t forget Han Go Eun as Cha Song Joo words: she said a country maybe embroiled in a revolution that feel like it is winter but Love still blossoms like a spring. Or KJH’s as Woo Wan’s outrageous declaration of love to Han Ji Min as Na Yu Kyung “It may take one person to go on revolution but it takes 2 to make love, so lets make love” (“,) This had me laughing. There were a lot of funny and wonderful words play in this drama that I thoroughly enjoyed it. highly recommended even though you’re not a KANG JI HWAN fans…but after watching him here, I doubt it if you’ll not turn into one.

  86. 86 : hansel Says:

    @85 nikky_p_28

    Wow!!! You’re really a KJH fans thru and thru (me too).
    Love this drama too. It has a nice story and soundtrack and the chemistry was just right. The colors of clothes he wore in this drama was so ludicrous and no one would be caught dead wearing them, even in that era but for some reason he pulled it off and it looks good on him. Highly recommended indeed. Very good romance drama in the middle of politically charged 1930’s Seoul.

  87. 87 : eugene Says:

    I love KJH since watching Be Strong Geum Soon. This drama is definitely a must watch. Kang Ji Hwan and Han Ji Min. I love both of them

    live in happiness ryu jin.

  89. 89 : jan 10 Says:

    Hi !

    This drama is make me excited , sympathized, sad and satisfied with happy ending.Every body should watch it.I like the performance of all actors and actresses in this drama.KJW has a sweet smile . So, I cannot forget his smile make me happy.Ryu Jin is handsome and manly .Both actresses are beautiful and great acting.

  90. 90 : Liz Says:

    I like this drama a lot. The story itself is different. Even though it revolves about the Korean Revolution. I wasn’t bored at all. It is because of the cast are great.

    I really don’t like Han Ji Min ‘s appearance. She’s such a beauty when she dressed up. I wish they made her much attractive than her current state. It’s a shame.

    Kang Ji Hwan is a great actor. I’ve always admire his funny, cool look.

    Ryu Jin is also one of the best actor I’ve watched.

    It’s just a pity why they have to kill Han Go Eun . I wanted her to live on with the rest. Such a beauty and dangerous character. I’m really impress with her acting

    If any of them are replaced,The drama will not be as funny, and eye catching as it is ..

  91. 91 : wilma Says:

    Eventhough the story is a period drama,its very interesting…its a worthwhile…

    The casting was indeed a good choice…that made the series more appealing…

    Kang Ji Hwan is a great actor,ive always like him in a funny and cool guy than on a drama typo…..and his character as a funny guy here in this series made it more watchable and worth it….

    Ryu Jin is as cute and an excellent actor as always….

    Last episode is a emotional whirlwind where go eun died and all sorts of things starts to wrap-up….

    It was another endearing and good series ….

    Really liked this drama.
    But the writter was so cruel by killing Cha Song Joo, she was my favorite character!!!
    Cha song joo was the characted that most impacted me in this drama, and Han Go Eum did such a great job!
    Sorry for those ones that think this commentary is wrong, but if my lover dies I would have died too, and when cha song joo died she told lee soo hyeon to live happy, how could he in life live happy without the person he most loved!! Oh, the writter was so cruel doing this to the ones that like cha song joo character.

  99. 99 : cheng Says:

    Dont know why always in some dramas the second pair is the one that most impact, but in this drama the best love part for me was cha song joo with lee soo hyeon, too bad cha song joo died… =(

  100. 100 : JJ Says:

    i just started watching this last night & i really think it’s a good drama besides that i luv the two actors kang ji hwan & ryu jin! they’re both excellent actors in the field!

  101. 101 : JJ Says:

    @nikki….LOL same here…i luv KJH too since save the last dance drama! likewise after watching him in be strong geum soon i had this urge to see his previous projects like this one which i started last night & i think i’m hooked on this too! ryu jin is another sweetie too bad he’s always getting the second lead! sigh sigh!
    i enjoy reading your msg! :)

  102. 102 : JJ Says:

    i’m now on epi 13 & i’m so impressed with kang ji wan’s acting in this drama…awesome actor…he’s v v convincing when he was crying in epi 13 confronting lee sun or ryu jin, it’s hard not to cry with him!
    kang ji wan – you rock! luving this drama the twist & turn of the story is remarkable! i highly recommend this!

  103. 103 : JJ Says:

    @nikki_p_28 wow well said, i enjoyed reading your msg here….u know since i saw kang ji hwan in save the last dance in a v small role in that drama, i fell for him since then! with so many kdramas i’ve watched the only second one that i saw of him lately was lie to me and this drama got me into stalking kjh again, then i looked for his old projs like be strong geum soon where my admiration for him turned into some kind of marathone KJH drama watching then if that’s not enough i watched him after than in my girlfriend is an agent & hong gil dong will be in the queue definitely….he’s an amazing actor….i also cried in that scene with ryu jin & kjh after finding out the truth about the death of his brother! i must admit i wasn’t expecting this drama to be this good but i also highly recommend this to anyone who hasn’t seen this! it’s as usual with kdramas addictive — i also enjoyed the three actors or in their role here as publishers are super funny! this drama is well made & it’s too bad it’s only 16 episodes coz i can’t seem to get enough of it!
    all the actors played & delivered well in their particular roles! i’m not sure if KJH won an award here but if not, they should have given him the best actor award! he’s good & versatile in acting be it drama or comedy! i hope he’s got another drama after lie to me coz he’s a delight to watch!

  104. 104 : JJ Says:

    i’m almost finished watching this drama & i really enjoyed it however i wished that cha song joo didn’t die here, she didn’t even get tried in court, it was a senseless killing but up to the end she was a hero, covering up for her loved lee so yeon! nice drama, i highly recommend this! good actors and i liked the three funny publishers too :) LOL they cracks me ev.time they’re on screen! kang ji & ryu were v good in their roles as well as the others i must say!

  105. 105 : Meileen Says:

    This series is next on my list…at first I was kinda hesitant watching Hong hil dong but it turned out to be good and worth watching. Already watched Coffee house, secret agent & Lie to me…I love KJH! Hwaiting!

    Very good movie in old fashion way. Main actor perfection with this movie as well as” Lie to Me ” Not sure about Coffee House, as I have not watch that movie yet. Kang is a real good actor and salute to him. On the whole the whole team were good, there were at times sad, romance, comedian but the movie is about revolution. You won’t regret watching this movie!!

    I Lyk this drama very much.I luv KJH playful character.HJM is also very cute.However I thnk the director & the producers made a mistake.isn’t it too modern for the 1930’s for example Wan’s parents house.& some of the clothing and make up.I dnt that that’s wat it was lyk in the 1930’s.

  114. 114 : zarima Says:
