    My all-time favourite kdrama! The male and female main characters in this drama are absolutely awesome, and the girl’s so cool… This drama triggers deep feelings and makes you think about it lots afterwards, and the fighting + music is freakin AWESOME!!!

    So full of emotions. The lead actors and 1actress gave a fantastic performance giving life and worth to the characters they portrayed as well as a deep appreciation of the story. The lead female star was awesome and believable in her performance. The production design was something to rave about also. Good drama!

    first time watching epic drama and i must say it is totally different from other k-drama i used to watched. the drama is full of action pack and emotions. it took me quite sometime to understand the whole storyline though :(

    salute to the 3 main characters which enlighten every episodes. the OST are also fab. highly recommended for those who wish to watched diffrent genre of k-drama. give it a try as you won’t regret it!

    gah! i was looking for this the longest time but the link doesn’t work or its not available anymore T.T

  6. 6 : Dolly Says:

    This drama is quite depressing and i really cried at it. Especially the last part when she knew that the one she wants to kill is her real brother it makes her heart breaking so she’s trying to cover him up but its too late!!!!! hu! hu! hu! hu! Try to watch this drama…….

  7. 7 : Julie Tan Says:

    Hi, just watched Damo. And… just I expected before this serial is totally sad. I cried A LOT watching last episode.

    Eventhough it was sad kdrama, but I felt this one was very good, better than I saw BAD LOVE. Three main characters’ performances were totally good. If I was a jugde of drama competition, I might be hard to choose.

    Though I hate Hwangbo Yoon for not trusting Chae-Ok. But the part when Jang Sung Baek knew about Jae Hui from Hwangbo Yoon and he got very shocked was very touchy.

    Ha Ji Won’s part was not much different than character NamSoon from Duelist, and the plot was almost the same. The lady detective tried to investigate a conterfeit gang.

    She’s not a cute actress. I found every part she played to be a person with a character, like Soo Jung (Memories of Bali), NamSoon, and of course Chae Ok

  11. 11 : magsie Says:

    very good drama. i love it very much. pls watch this

  12. 12 : hana yoori Says:

    Damo was good in the beginning. Then, it kind of went downhill as it went on. Why did they all have to die? Why couldn’t the commander and Chae ok live? At least let someone live and not die for nothing. It kind of disgusted me that she falls in love with her brother, but then, I also understand she felt this strong connection with him. Can’t really blame her. Overall, it’s a movie I would watch only the beginning of because the ending sucks.

  13. 13 : samia Says:

    ok well i still havent finished this drama but i think its pretty gd and for all you people who don’t know where to watch it then go to http://www.mysoju.com it has all kdramas with very gd quality

  14. 14 : Stela Plamada Says:

    I was disappointed by Damo, because Jang Chae-Ok not really loved by Commander Hwangbo Yoon. I think this is drama in the end, Chae-Ok was cruel to Hwangbo Yoon, and as Jang Sung-Baek. She is proud and wants to get results at any cost. Hwangbo Yoon really loved her, and dies because he loved her. It’s shocking because Chae-Ok falls in love with her brother …. I felt sorry for the suffering of two brothers, but most Hwangbo Yoon’s suffering touched me ….. he was a wonderful man, almost perfect…Overall, it’s a movie !

  15. 15 : anoop Says:

    its a great k-drama, worth watching ….
    i love the music in this very much….
    just want to know where could i get the music, the one comes near the green valley in 7th ep its awesome……

  16. 16 : angeljad Says:

  23. 23 : eugene Says:

    I love Lee Seo Jin and Ha Ji Won in this drama. Love this drama so much!!!

  24. 24 : calLypSoo Says:

    This drama is very beautiful. Ha Ji-won did the drama excellently. The drama is very sad because the love between Chae-ok and Commander Wangbo is forbidden because she was born as a low class. In the love between Chae-ok and Song-baek is also forbidden because they are sister and brothers.
