    Everyone has their own taste and preference in drama. I agree that this drama is a lil bit slow, but it has its own meaningful messages to give to its audience. Ruler drama is good as well, but it gives the viewers the twisted plots to make us curious to know what’s gonna happen next. But if you look on the bigger side of it, Ruler has nothing to offer to us other than twisted plots to make it draggy.

    And for your information, the actors and actresses here are mostly the experienced one though they may not be the “hallyu” star right now.

    This drama is one the best Korean drama. I like the way of presenting story back and forth. People who can’t handle a dark drama might feel bore watching this drama. As most of the Korean drama fan are younger and they will like the typical romcom rather than this type of drama.

    a very good watch! this is not a ‘run of the mill’ s.k. drama, so it’s really worth spending time to understand why three people met again at present time to settle unfinished business decades before, when the chaos of war would not allow them to be happy. there’s no point comparing this series with another that was aired at the same time, nor the actors who starred in both. everyone has his own likes/bias/prejudices/etc. etc. etc. enjoy when you can, and drop it when you can’t. also, i don’t know exactly what qualifies a ‘hallyu star’, but i consider the two male leads in this series as better actors than some guys called ‘hallyu’ stars. cheerio!

    I thought Sungkyunkwan Scandal was the best Korean drama among the ones I have watched, it made me cry and laugh and entertained fully over all. It comes second now to Chicago Typewriter, it is the best, no boring episodes and I liked how it ended.

    Second time being here, and i thought this drama was one of the most underated drama i’ve ever seen. This drama was way better than what rating says.
