  36. 36 : Mike Chen Says:

    Many Chinese american love to watch King Se jong. It’s a great series and has a lot of good character lessons for everyone. The actors and actresses are very good and of high quality.
    Please make it available in english subtitles so I can purchase and get more of my friends to watch

  37. 37 : Kaibern Says:

    The Great King Sejong is excellent – I enjoy it very
    much and get to see it with the English Subtitles and have
    been watching the Korean Dramas for a number of
    years now. The Iron Princess is still the best
    history based one I have seen so far, but the
    Great King Sejong is becoming a favorite as well.
    Most of the dramas have great casts, good
    story lines (even if repetitive at times) and a good overview
    of the culture and customs and are a must to

  38. 38 : Kaibern Says:

    Correction: Iron Empress — sorry

  39. 39 : Adi Says:

  40. 40 : rose dizon Says:

    I am hooked to korean history, watched QSD Jumong, Kingdom of the Winds, Dae Jang Geum. But what I recently learned about King Sejong, the greatest Asian King ever. I want to see this koreandrama but I am having difficulty in finding it esp with english subs. Please whoever is willing enough to do the english subs, I would appreciate it very much. King Sejong is a great leader, who knows how to tap and discover potentials of his people even those from the lower ranks. Bless his soul.

  41. 41 : janet Says:

    Where is the english subtile. why only chinese. do you think all people will understand chinese language. commonsense. can you upload it with english sub. coz we’re addicted of korean drama! Thank you so much!

  42. 42 : janet Says:

    Tekenote: I like this korean drama Co’z from QSD to the great sejong. queen seondeok niece king tejong moyeol is the father of sejong. hahaha. i’m not a korean but i really love to read the history of other country.

  43. 43 : Chunyi Says:

    King Sejong was a great king because He came from the Seonggol clan, though his father king Tejong moyeol (Son of Princess Cheonmyung, the Twin sister the Great Queen Seondeok) lose the title of being a seonggol and only posses a jingol title so his son King Sejong posses the same title too he is still became the Great King.

    I love tracking the korean history and the people behind their History though I hate History Subject before.

  44. 44 : Vlas Daniel Says:
