    meemoo Says:

    I was waiting for this drama, the actors are great but the first EP was boring or their acting was boring not sure @@ I lost interest in this drama but I’ll try to watch the second EP even tho it’s clear that it’s a waste of time, the only good part was lee kwang soo thoT_T

    Hwarang is an awesome drama. I will watch this drama till last episode,

  29. 29
    Gugu Says:

    Every scene with Lee Kwang Soo, i either laugh or cry. I think he is the best scene stealer actor. Have watched till epi 4 and i do like how the story is heading. One definite point i dislike will be the hairstyles for Park Seo Joon and Hyung Sik. Hopefully the writer changes their hairstyles to bring out the best in them. Hwarang fighting!

    CoolBeans Says:

    The drama is worth watching for the good blend of comedy and drama.. Go Ah Ra and Kwang Soo stole the early episodes.

    Sedjn Says:

    At first i don’t have strength to watch this drama because it brings to many actors and i thought it just offer their face. But because PSJ minho and PHS promote this drama on 1n2d i started to watch it. After i watch until ep 4, my though just ‘why the rating is low?’ this drama has good story. Still talking about the king and his enemies but i still laughing so hard when the humor scene appeared

    Ryoseum Says:

    the young king character attracts me the most… in love with park hyung sik’s acting ♡♥♡♥♡♥

  33. 33
    Syue Says:

    Who is moo myung … what his background actually? Maybe he secret son of the queen or son of person who kill d late king?
    In ep 6… aro father meet the stranger.. the stranger said ” someone who should not be out the world”.. meaning everyone? Anything..

    Cant wait next week.. so curious…so excited…
