    Another bitchy role for Lee So Yeon. Looks like her beat roles fit her personality. You love to hate her and I do.

    Kim so yan Says:

    Yes, I heard the Lee So Yeon is a super bitch, in movies and in real life. That is why she is so good at playing bad people. You can tell it in her face. She seems like a selfish individual.

    Nadege Says:

    Was the relationship between the king & joj love as “joj live in love” portrays or was it sort of business as “dong yi” portray?

    According to history she harmed her son (crown prince) moments before she was to be poisoned!!! Due to that her son was sterile & ill through out his 4 year reign. When he died, Dong yi’s son succeeded him & reign for 52years. If that is true about her harming her son then I am more apt to believe her machinations in “dong yi” then “joj live in love”. But I am still confuse about the king’s love for her and/or dong yi. Did he love both or one of them (if so which one)

    Best historical drama i’ve ever watch.. Besides the moon that embraces the sun. Im so excited with this drama because its based on true story. Except the ending.. King jeongjo reign after his brother conspiracy at 1724 but they make king jeongjo reign at 1694. And sook bin died at 1718. But still i love every scenes of this drama.. It proved that good people will stay long. So many conspiracy and i love to see how much king sukjong love dong yi and all of their sacrifes for each other. Must watch!!!

    Carmarie Says:

    I loved this drama and has watched it three times since it first aired.

    The king was in love with both JOJ and Dong Yi. He was in love with JOJ first; however, her insecurities, jealousy and lust for power caused her to do some wicked thing; therefore, she lost the kings love and eventually her life.

    minmin Says:

    Have watched 3/4 of this drama.. very good drama but at episode 42, I feel like slapping Dong Yi and the writer for this ridiculous part. I can accept that she wants to see justice for her father and brother’s death BUT she is already a Royal Consort and has a son, a PRINCE. How can she just act on her own like she has no responsibilities and accountability!

    minmin Says:

    I watched Jang Ok Jung just before this series and realized how different Dong Yi was portrayed in Jang Ok Jung (Dong Yi’s role and story was downplayed in JOK). While I enjoyed Jang Ok Jung, I like this series Dong Yi much much better – maybe the best I’ve watched so far. The cast was good. Kim Yoo Jung was very memorable as the child Dong Yi. And then Ji Jin Hee & Lee So Yeon’s acting was superb.

    tigerb Says:

    i’d like to watch this, but if some comments say that the life of this woman is also depicted in ‘jang ok jung’, then it would be confusing as which story to believe. although the writers of both dramas take part of history and expound on it to write a story, their different interpretations cannot be impressive anymore. so i’m lulling on the idea of watching this.
