Based on a fictional book about a Robin Hood in Korea,Hong Gil Dong, this drama is very loosely based off of that book and the time it was set in.

Hong Gil Dong is the bastard son of a minister. He spends most of his time lazing the day away and taking goods from the various merchants. However, a local monk think he’s destined to be more. Hong Gil Dong, for his part, really dislikes the injustices in this ranked world.

Heo Yi Nok has returned to Korea, fresh from China. She’s an upbeat, naive and carefree girl. She’s been living with her grandfather for the last few years. They both are merchants looking to make a fortune back in Korea.

Lee Chang Hwi, however, has been told since he was young that he’s the rightful king of Korea. He bumps into Heo Yi Nok. This initially causes misunderstanding between them, but over time his heart is softening towards her.

Meanwhile Heo Yi Nok and Hong Gil Dong are developing a friendship that feels like (at least to Yi Nok) that it could be more.

As the question of rightful succession comes into play, Hong Gil Dong and Yi Nok are forced to take sides.

    Just finish watching this drama. I like all the main actors
    Kang Ji Hwan as Hong Gil Dong
    Sung Yu Ri as Heo Lee Nok
    Jang Geun Suk as Lee Chang Hwui

    But my heart broke for Jang Geun Suk the most. And the theme song “IF” makes me cry as soon as I hear the 1st word..

    It was a real good drama but very unexpected ending. Why should one broke the heart of Jang Geun Suk, because of his looks? In a drama one must not choose the looks if he is going to be a person who wants power to become a King. For that position it is greed and power. Hong Gil Dong and his men helped Chang Hwui in many ways even risking his own life so why did Chang Hui destroyed Hong Gil Dong’s People and their territory? No security? Afraid someone steal his throne? All of them had their sufferings. Hong Gil Dong, Yi Nok also had their bad past and sufferings not only Chang Hwui. He changed because Yi Nok prefers Hong Gil Dong? So I do not liek the ending as it is not as logic as the whole story was good till the last episode spoiled the whole drama..Pity!!Honto ni Kawaiso ne! But all the actors and actresses were fantastic in this drama …Especially all those main characters

    i watched this drama because the first episode was well done. i got hooked, although the story is loose, but the actors were good, the portrayal of the monk was weird, and a mixture of action, romance, comedy, etc. the depiction of two narrow worlds, one with a king and peasants, the other when everyone is equal, was imperfect, as no world is perfect. i feel sad for a young king, could not win his love and found he was a victim of manipulating people, but his resolve to be king, rightful as it was, made him stronger and proved that he can be king in the end, so too bad for HGD and HYN and the resurgent gang. the leading actor and actress were good in their roles, and JKS had a restrained acting being a king. he was better in ‘hwang jin yi’, comparing his roles in a period drama. i’ve watched many of his work, and the guy can really act. it’s a good watch!
