    One of the most-awaited and most-discussed/hyped dramas. I’m sure it will be amazing–writer & director never disappoints. Hope a lot will support this just like their previous works. Looking forward to watch.

    I wonder how the Korean netizen would react with this drama of Lee Byung Hun after his scandal. I don’t really like this time, I prefer very old or very modern, not in this middle. But if it’s a nice movie, I’d love to watch.

    Kim Tae Ri is why I’m watching this drama. Her last movie “Little Forest” was a nice little postcard flick that I enjoyed very much.

    A lot of money spent on the first episode and it is impressive. The cinematography is beautiful.

    The production team didn’t do enough research for this drama, they the WRONG AMERICAN FLAG. At 1871 US didn’t have their 50 stars on the flag.

    Lee byong hun- i can stomach him in action type but not in love story. I don’t care about his scandal but then I can’t see him being so lovey and faithful in a love story drama.

    This is high budget drama, i like it, but not love it for now, let see next episode..

    Tattoo Says:

    Oh ooh !! Wrong era American flag and also wrong military uniforms depicted??

    Just as well I lost interest in watching Lee Byung Hun’s works just as my respect for him eroded after his scandalous behavior.

    Hyeongnam Says:

    At episode 3, still a lot of reminiscing. But I like the song at the end (“The Day”). Up to the chorus it is really, really good, but he drops the ball in the last half of the song when the melody aimlessly waffles on offering nothing but banality.

    The characters are not pulling me in but I love the atmosphere. Every scene is beautiful.

    Some lyrics from Park Hyo Shin’s “The Day” OST of this drama.

    In spite of the cruel sunshine

    The spring was beautiful on a bloody field
    The petals bloom red

    On the day when all winds stop

    The day when I’m allowed to yearn for you
With a heart of stone, I will call you
