    God, I wish it was a different actress. I love Ji-Sub and Kye Sang but I never care for Ha Neul in drama, she was good in movies, but she fall short on long term project.

  6. 6 : autumn Says:

    I agree with you. I feel that So ji sub suit a smaller size actress…. Kim Ha Neul look too tall.

  7. 7 : white flag Says:

    i never seen ha neul in drama before, i know that she was the lead in “on air” but i didn’t have the chance to watch this series.anyway the important thing is that our “so ji sub ” is in this drama 😀 and who knows , may be ha neul be great and suit her role very well.let’s not judge her now..

  26. 26 : nining Says:

    love korean drama much,,

  27. 27 : dramalover Says:

    Hey, I just watched the first episode of this drama series online…I think it’s got a good start. I liked it better than the other drama series called “Brother in Arms” (전우) which is also new. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen So Ji Seob in any drama series. You know when I was in the army I’ve talked to a veteran from Texas who fought in the Korean War and how he visited Korea again in 2002. He told me how much Korea had changed in the last 50 years. Just goes to show you how the Korean War wasn’t just a war fought by Koreans… Anyways, I hope this series develops well with a good storyline. BTW, I watched the drama online at Jemibox…google it and see for yourself

  28. 28 : ontak Says:

    i love korean drama,, can i have a download link of this?

  29. 29 : hachi Says:

    hi, just want to know how you looked this drama if on the website you said its just on Korean and it dosen´’t have any subs in english, please let me know cause i’ve been looking all over for this drama and i can’t find it on english.. thanks bye

  30. 30 : belle fry Says:

    Would love to watch this movie with eng sub….mainly because the best actor and so good looking SO JI SUB is in this drama!!!!!!Please have eng sub!!!!!

  31. 31 : Belle Says:

    Storyline is not logical. A girl (Soo Yun) who does not marry yet (even a married woman who does not have any child yet), how can she have any milk for baby? It dramatizes illogically. Thumb down! Bye!

  32. 32 : christine Says:

    i have watched the 1st and 2nd episode and its beautiful, i believe its going to be the best drama for year 2010.

    i love kim ha neul, she is a beautiful, talented and graceful actress. From what i have seen so far, both of them ie so ji sub have very good chemistry, they are so engrossed with each other, so in love… perfect couple…i love their kissing scenes so natural…..

    cheers to yun kye sung…his acting is beautiful too…

  33. 33 : mutiara Says:

    I love korean drama!!

  34. 34 : jane Says:

    I’ve wahtched ep1 + ep2…..the acting skills of the 3 leads (so ji sub, kim ha neul, yoon kye sang) are very good. Kim Ha Neul impressed me the most though. She is so pretty even with less or without make up.

    I liked the breast-feeding scene, Kim Ha Neul looked like an angel with her smile.

    And Ji Sub – Ha Neul make a very cute couple!

    This drama is so amazing with beautiful view, beautiful music. Thumbs up to Road No. 1

  35. 35 : Puji Says:

    I Love So Ji Sub…
    Can’t Wait to Watch It…

  36. 36 : jen Says:

    i wish also it was different actress,i dont lyk kim haneul,i agree he suit a smaller actress lyk han ji min,love cain and abel.

  37. 37 : christine Says:

    why leave negative comments?

    kim ha neul is the best actress and they hve chosen well! both so ji sub and kim ha neul compliment each other and have very good chemistry?

    i have seen ep. 1-4 and definitely a versatile drama and i will support all the way…

    so ji sub, kim ha neul and yun kye sung are versatile actors and they hve done a great job and played their roles well.

    its the greatest drama for year 2010!

  38. 38 : lyn Says:

    i stop wtchng til ep.3 i luv so ji sub so much,but 4 me he has no chemistry 2 the lead actress.

  39. 39 : cacai Says:

    im so addicted of so ji sub and yoon kye sang but when i saw kim ha neul i lost interest.

  40. 40 : Alghie Says:


  41. 41 : ma hye ri Says:

    yeh, look, this drama is NOT good.
    prosecutor princess is the best drama of this year
    KSY is better than Ha Neul. Medical student does not have basic knowledge that girl, women do not have milk to feed baby unless after they deliver baby.

  42. 42 : christine Says:

    kim ha neul, you are my favorite actress and your performance in Road No. 1 is beautiful…

    disregard those negative comments, they do not know how to appreciate such awesome performance from you, so ji sub, yun kye sun and the rest of the crew…. cheers to all who are involved with this beautiful drama.

    i have been waiting patiently for the episodes to come out and so far it has been really worth viewing and will definitely follow to the final episode….

  43. 43 : AMEIR Says:

    hi!i’m from iran!thank you for series & So ji sub is best actor!

  44. 44 : AMEIR Says:

    this film is very goooooooood

  45. 45 : Suzy Says:

    Hey, just wondering did so ji sub die??? cos i know at the beginning of the show they only show the other lead actor….

  46. 46 : Rae Says:

    I love SJS but why why the actress have to be KHN , why her..she look old.. There are so many actress in Korea …why her. Because of her , I am not sure to watch this drama but I love So Ji Sub….if the actress is some other lady…this is will a good drama

  47. 47 : jennifer Says:

    i agree w/u rae,of all korean actresses y KHN i dont lyk her also i am a fan of SJS but bcuz of the female lead im not interested 2 watch road 1.

  48. 48 : christine Says:

    those who anti khn are just jealous of her …..

    i believe all the actors and actresses have proven themselves and their performance was great…versatile and splendid..simply beautfiul

  49. 49 : julie Says:

    where can you see this series?

  50. 50 : juno Says:

    so ji sub soooo hot..but i dont like d chemistry between him and khn,.i will continue 2 wtch road 1 only 4 so ji sub..oppa fighting!

  51. 51 : saky Says:

    Many ways to calm the baby (doll, toys, brace baby in arms, etc…), why khn chooses to simulate the breastfeeding ?
    Any medical student tries that in real life now? The girl who knows she does not have any milk but she acts as if she is the woman in the postpartum period & she simulates the breastfeeding to calm baby.
    If baby cries due to hunger (not due to other reason), breastfeeding with no milk cannot stop the cry for long because there is no milk & baby is still hungry, then baby keeps crying until there is no energy left to cry.

    Breastfeeding here just gives baby the false hope of milk.

    It is NOT the art but it is such a STUPID IDEA even in the period of war, even to calm baby. Storyline is NOT good. Kim Haneul over-acts. I am not interesting in this drama any more. DISAPPOINTED!

  52. 52 : abbie Says:

    ahh, another War movie… i am not a fan of it. however Kim Ha neul is my most favorite actress, maybe someday i will be able to bring myself to watch this series.

  53. 53 : christine Says:

    no offense meant but in times of war, when you don’t even have enough to eat..where can you find dolls, toys etc,

    my opinion i do not think it is a stupid idea but more of a mother nature or women’s instinct when a child cries automatically you will try to soothe the baby the mother nature’s way …infact i think that particular scene was very beautiful..

    and khn did not over-acts my dear, she was just acting according to the script ok…..

  54. 54 : BlueRose Says:

    OMG! I try it. It dramatizes slowly. “SPOIL”: I saw he opens the door & he sees she (khn) is doing the breast feeding. No scene shows baby is crying before the breast feeding, so NO REASON for women’s instinct automatically doing breast feeding. No scenes show the baby is afraid of something so NO REASON TO CALM BABY . All is just your imagination.

    Do u read Eng. sub there? Do u understand Eng.sub? The English sub. shows she says …generally, mother of baby leaves baby there & (it seems that baby like latching to her & fall asleep) baby latches to her & fall asleep.

    Why she does not just hold baby in arms, sing a song to make baby falls asleep?
    Why she does the breast feeding or simulates the breast-feeding when she does not have milk?

    I agree it is not the art too, it is the over-acting, the illogical exaggeration. The drama will be better without over-actings. I hope drama will improves.

  55. 55 : Seung-Hee Says:

    Please! be nice! please do not continue to argue, all are friends. I support & like this drama.

  56. 56 : cathy Says:

    Rating is too low , first 4 episodes are very stupid , boring triangle love story most of my friends skipped those episodes but from epi 5 , very
    interesting , believable , touching war drama , i personally enjoy it very much .
    Comrades is another good war drama too .

  57. 57 : wilma Says:

    right, first 4 episodes are very stupid , boring triangle love, I do not see ep.5 yet, but I’m tired & not sure I’ll continue or switch to other drama, PP or PT both are better than this drama?

  58. 58 : blabber gal Says:

    Yep,I absolutely agree.So Ji Sup is much more compatible with Han Ji min.There is a strong chemistry and evident comfort between them on and off the screen.Their poster pictures show more natural poses too.I’m watching this drama for So Ji Sup’s brilliant acting and charismatic gaze.

  59. 59 : neth Says:

    yeah me 2 i agree also so ji sub and han ji min have a great chemstry,how i wsh they r couple n real life.lets support our so ji sub oppa fighting!

  60. 60 : Suzy Says:

    This drama is pretty intense, i dont think its boring or lousy at all, instead i LOVE the effects as well as the plot, So ji Sub, Kim ha neul,yoon kye sang both have chemistry, i mean u have to watch more episodes to feel it man…how can you conclude that this drama is not worth watching when u have only watch like 3-4 episodes??? And whats with the baby….its just a scene la…chill man…Anyway if u did watch after that scene shows why tae hoon fell in love with so yuen…cos he feels that she is like a mother to him, a mother whom he did not have a chance to protect…..Both actors and actresses put in so much effort that i feel as if i am just right there infront of them when i’m watching it, love the battle scenes!!!!!!! anyway i really hope its a good ending…though im pretty sure its not….. haizz

  61. 61 : just me Says:

    So many negative comments abt KHN. I think its more to jealousy.
    For me, they hv choose the perfect casts… KHN. Is versatile actress.
    And if complained about breast feeding scene…do protest to the writer. She is following to the script.

    @ ma hye ri, I do love prosecutor princess, and damn hot Si Hoo. But this is weird to compare such a light comedy drama with this kind of war drama…
    To be honest either, KSY looks older than Si Hoo..but afterall ma hye ri got a personality that u can’t hate… Hahaha…such a funny woman…

    I love SJS also with HJM in abother drama ( forget the title, SJS. Is a doctor who got amnesia) . HJM is so cute.
    But hate KHN bcoz obsessed with this couple is so pointless…


  62. 62 : dewi Says:

    Sorry, it is not my cup of tea too. The start kinda boring, who cares the rest. Many other dramas are waiting…..perhaps, u r obsessed with haneul……honest either, KSY is pretty, younger, better than kim ha neul, So Ji sub is not good as kwon sang won in movie 71-into the fire. yea…. recommend prosecutor princess for anyone like light comedy.

  63. 63 : wynona Says:

    so ji sub oppa,u r my favorite korean actor,hope your rumor with han ji min is true,luv u both.

  64. 64 : wynona Says:

    so sad the ratings so low,i still love so ji sub fightng oppa!your fans will suport u always,saranghe

  65. 65 : corinne Says:

    i love sjs and yks,i am fnish wtchng cain and abel,great drama,hope that sjs and hjm will reunite n another drama,for yoon kye sang,im currently wtchng who are you,i adore him pairing w/go ara despite their age gap,they match well.good luck 2 so ji sub and yoon kye sang hope this drama will get high ratings.

  66. 66 : Ellaine Says:

    SJS, YKS, plus KHN… Yum yum..
    Not a fan of war drama… I prefer comedy romantic than this drama, but the cast…olala… I should give it a try…

    @ Dewi, honey, I like KSY too in PP.
    But pls don’t compare actress/actors here. U may offend others which not necessary…

  67. 67 : mika Says:

    Some of the comments here are so pathetic, especially the ones complaining about the breastfeeding scene, KHN didn’t write this so why blame her? its not even bad, you guys are just finding excuses to hate on Kim Ha Neul, Its obvious its out of jealousy,as if u guys will have chance with SJS, get real! Most of you are shippers of another actress that’s why..You can’t deny SJS-KHN chemistry its so natural, u can tell the kisses were real ..Stop with the jealousy we can see-through your post..PATHETIC!

  68. 68 : sonic Says:

    This drama is so good..And it just keeps getting better..To those who dont want to watch it, its your loss! They perfectly cast all th actors, everybody is doing a wonderful job acting..I must say KHN looks great for someone not wearing any make-up, her skin is flawless..Those who say otherwise is just jealous..Also I noticed most of the negative comments were from shippers of SJS-HJM, this is a different drama you are not the one to decide who SJS acted with or wants to date, u can’t force whats not there..

  69. 69 : King Says:

    To those who like this drama, enjoy it yourself, dudes, my standard is higher. KHN’s skin is flawless to u, but she is dull in my eyes. U dream to have a chance with SJS, so u think everybody dreams like u. Dudes, feel free to date or marry him. He is not my type. U think others r jealous and I suppose they think u have low taste. My opinion about the first half of this drama: it makes me sleep so I have to see other drama to wake me up….ha…ha….. Bye dudes!

  70. 70 : christine Says:

    actually i did not want to post again after hearing all those negative comments but thanks to mika and the rest of the guys n gals who support this drama… i m back again!

    yes the drama is getting better and better… KHN performance is beautiful and the chemistry between her and sjs is just perfect especially the kissing scenes which is so natural and sweet…

    kudos to all the actors and actressess, your performance is just great.

  71. 71 : wynona Says:

    i am avid fan of sjs,i already watched all his drama,2 be honest i like his chemistry with han ji min,no offense meant to all khn fans,its just my opinion.

  72. 72 : jeboi Says:

    just wondering y the ratings very low,whats the reason?maybe korean people are not fan of war drama or maybe the chemistry between the lead actors,pls dont argue,but i think its free 2 comment here.

  73. 73 : Blabber gal Says:

    How is it possible that Road No 1 is getting better when the viewers’ ratings have been consistently low (below 10) from episode 2 onwards? What determines the popularity of a drama is first n foremost the storyline,next the cast and last the actors’ acting skills. I may be an ardent fan of SJS but personally i find the storyline rather dull n longwinded and the pairing of SJS – KHN does not create as many electric sparks as that of SJS – HJM in Cain and Abel. Though i must admit that all the three main actors are veteran actors with superb acting skills. All i can say to the whole cast is ” Don’t lose heart n hope for the best till the end! “

  74. 74 : sonic Says:

    Isn’t it weird that most of the negative comments came from the shippers of SJS-HJM fans of Cain and Abel??? That says much why you see a lot of negative comments about the chemistry of the lead..And they even try to blame the low ratings for it,how ridiculous! if u don’t see any chemistry it is due to the storyline and the editing of the drama, u can’t blame the acting, because the acting is superb and natural. Also u can’t compare 2 different dramas and compare the chemistry, especially when this is a war drama, the mood is different..

  75. 75 : blabber gal Says:

    The ratings of a particular drama reflect the viewers’ feedback.The higher the ratings of the drama,the more captivating it is in the eyes of the viewers.So,if the ratings are consistently low,then the drama has not really captured the hearts of many viewers.There must be some elements in the drama which the viewers dislike.They could be the storyline,the mismatched cast,the actors’acting,etc.The viewers have every right to voice their feedback and state the obvious.Saying that the Koreans don’t like watching war epics as much as other genres is probably true.However,another war epic which is concurrently being telecast, COMRADES , has surprisingly scored much higher ratings than ROAD NO 1.So, what makes the latter fare more poorly than the first?

  76. 76 : sonic Says:

    What are you really trying to say? You are being unreasonable, the number of viewers doesn’t always reflect how good the drama is..There could be many other reasons why the ratings is low..the main one is because RN1 was up against Baker King who already got big followers from the start, you can’t expect them to switch to RN1 when they already started watching Baker King..About the mismatched cast, who do you think could play this well? And the acting, how else do you want them to act? What is wrong with it? Some of the comments here are full of biases..And what is the state the obvious? What is obvious? Tell me what do you think is the reason the drama is doing poorly?

  77. 77 : sheena Says:

    guys pls stop arguing i’m kinda cry now when i read all the arguing pls support to our fave so ji sub..i love his actng so much,he has a passion when it comes to acting..i love him so much…PEACE

  78. 78 : Vah Says:

    Big budget, well-known casts of this drama draw a lot of attention before it is aired. If this drama is really exciting, the viewers must be increased gradually.
    Baker King gets less than 30% when this drama starts & now Baker King gets less than 38%, so what the rest of viewers see? This drama still can get ratings up to 50% if it defeats other drama & shows on the same broadcast period.
    The fact, this drama starts with rating above 11%, then, ratings go down. It even can’t keep its own viewers. It disappoints its own viewers who support it from the start. I try it because of its advertisement of casts, … but it disappoints me. Storyline must be adjusted, casts are not hot & acting is poor. I still do not see any exciting part of this drama. Sorry! I agree with someone: “All i can say to the whole cast is ” Don’t lose heart n hope for the best till the end! “

  79. 79 : Goobuny Says:

    Don’t worry; next drama of my fave. SJS will be successful! Whoa, ….rumor that SJS will pair with beautiful, young Yoon Eun-hye in drama LOVE SONG. It sounds so good! I’m waiting for them & skip this drama. I love Yoon Eun-hye so much from Goong. Their chemistry will be a lot better, whoa strong, handsome man with sexy, hot lady. Whoa,….so hot….so hot….can’t wait….

  80. 80 : sonic Says:

    Don’t hide behind the bushes, admit it you don’t like the actress for a certain reason..That’s where the hate comes from..Don’t use the ratings as an excuse..Also the reason why the ratings went down after first episodes was because of the fast-paced of the drama, but that doesn’t mean the rest is bad, because it really gotten better, too bad to those who didn’t wait..Also you couldn’t blame the actress for her acting, compared to the actors she had little scenes, most of it are flashbacks so it feels disconnected..Don’t try to make it seem the ratings is low because of her, didn’t u know her last film 7 Grade Civil Servant was a box office smash, obviously people loves to watch her..as for the chemistry of actors, the kisses were as real as you can get, unlike so many other korean dramas..

  81. 81 : jeboi Says:

    blabber gal i agree with u,fighting!

    Hey guys,

    give them a break, Road no. 1 is good even though the rating show otherwise….i mean personally i dont think viewership rating is soo important in deciding whether the drama is a hit or not…i have love those dramas where their ratings were not even in the top 10….anyway, i have a Qn, is this drama 20 episodes or 16??? I read in Han cinema that this drama is 16, but it shows 20 here….i hope its 20 though, cos now its already showing episode 12, and thats where the drama gain momentum…to end at 16 is kinda rush….any idea which no. of episodes is correct??

  83. 83 : maureen Says:

    after i read all the comments here,and tried 2 watch road 1 and cain/abel,and compare the chemistry between the actors..n my opinion so ji sub had strong chemistry with the petite woman of cain/abel although she s not very pretty compared 2 khn,but i lyk her simple looks.i do not see also any xciting of RN1,nevertheless i will continue 2 watch RN1 cuz i lyk so ji sub so much…sooo hot actor!

  84. 84 : jen Says:

    the ratings consistently low because of SJS-KHN pairing,there is no chemistry at all,so boring very dissapointed.

  85. 85 : celine Says:

    my so ji sub oppa..ive always support all your drama…who is your partner in your next drama?hope you read this mssg…hope this drama get higher ratings in the next episodes…goodluck and godbless.

  86. 86 : Blabber gal Says:

    I see that some of you have echoed the same sentiment as mine.Let me set the record straight.Jealousy?who are we as viewers to be jealous of?Should we wish to worship and exalt Kim Ha Neul/Han Ji Min/Yun Eun Hye coz we are an ardent fan of hers or verbally assault and censure other actresses coz we loathe them,we should not reproach one another for doing so.It’s our rightful privilege as viewers to express our personal views n preferences.As far as drama ratings are concerned,we must accept the fact that high rating dramas sell like hot peanuts.Most of us are ardent fans of SJS n we have done our best to support him by watching his latest drama.However,we are here to make Personal comments on the drama n voice our Candid n Subjective feedbacks based on what we have Obviously seen with our Layman’s (not film critic’s) eyes.The viewers’ Positive n Negative feedbacks work as an indispensable yardstick for the ultimate fame n success of actors/actresses.That is the harsh reality of the glamorous n ruthlessly competitive entertainment biz that every actor/actress has to endure n live with.

  87. 87 : sonic Says:

    how pathetic! do you seriously think korean viewers, we are talking about korean viewers in korea here, consciously did not watch this because they don’t like the pairing?,I don’t think so! Its just you jealous fangirls in the net who thinks this way..Your opinion is not everyones opinion so don’t make it as a fact..About the leads chemistry, you can’t compare it with another dramas chemistry when they have a different scenario..This was war themed whereas th other one was modern, on this drama they didn’t really show the whole process of falling for each other while the other one your comparing they did, of course u wuld see more chmistry there, where as on this you just see them loving each other so much already, you didn’t see the development of love..but from what they have (storyline) you can definately see chemistry there..You guys are just so used to the typical love-hate before falling for each other thing korean dramas usually have..

  88. 88 : mimeko Says:

    whoah! lotsa envious fangirls in here. must be tough being a celebrity

  89. 89 : yuu and ai Says:

    many negative comments huh..so i decided 2 watched these 2 shows,and i found that cain and abel more interesting than road 1,who’s jealous?it s free 2 xpress our comments here,2 all SJS-HJM shippers i am with u guyz.hopefully road # 1 will gain more viewers,go!ji sub oppa dont lose hope.

  90. 90 : jen Says:

    ji sub ssi,saranghe..stop arguing ok..we r all so ji sub fans here lets support all his drama.lets pray that rn1 will captivate the hearts of the viewrs,and the remaining episods will get high ratings.

  91. 91 : Suzy Says:

    Ya…lets just watch the drama…..enjoy the process man..like i said if you already have the mindset that its not as good, blah blah, then of course the more you watch, the more you will be fixed on it…though it is right for us to view our views but mocking and targeting the chemistry of the actors and actress is just not right…you think they didnt make effort in acting??? from the way i see it, they have put in 110% man….personally for me I LOVE IT…you guys can argue…but then you will have missed out the whole point of the drama…anyway the drama is coming to an end…so chill out man, lets just continue to watch and support the actors! btw…i prefer kim hanuel with yoon kye sang…lol..dont bash me! Soon Yeon & Shin tae hoo…weeeeeeee

  92. 92 : blue Says:

    Haih, like u know what is chemistry…
    Say it loud, I didn’t like KHN, I prefer HJM. Why they picked KHN instaed of HJM ? Whyyyy?
    See ?

    Stop blaming the low rating coz of they lack of chemistry…

  93. 93 : celine Says:

    all i can say is i loooooooove sojisub…sooooooooo muuuuccccchhhhh.

  94. 94 : ivy Says:

    lol..what happened here? this reminded me back when initial pix of RN1 started coming out, when i saw those intimate scenes and kisses of SJS-KHN,i thought “this is not good for KHN, I can see now the reactions of fangirls”..I knew this would happen to her, very predictable of the fangirls to be jealous..poor her, she’s getting the blame..Personally I think all the actors are doing a wonderful job with the acting and the chemistry is good. It’s just the storyline and editing is not that perfect..I am sure if this drama has a better plot the chemistry would be more obvious to see..

  95. 95 : Dandelion Says:

    Yeah,what do you know about chemistry between the opposite sexes? Have you experienced such chemistry in real life yourself? Who is jealous of who? As if you know what all the koreans think.Neomu saranghaeyo JI SUP-JI MIN COUPLE!You are the sweetest couple on earth!Ji Sup oppa,himneyo….

  96. 96 : celine Says:

    i’m an avid fan of so ji sub ever since,whoever he paired wid any korean actresses,still hes the great actor and always my fave actor in the world…and i love him more when she paired to han ji min, 1 of my fave.korean actress..now i love them and wish them that they’re rumor is true,but 4 me sjs-hjm chemistry are so good rather than sjs-khn chem..sorry to pro khn but thats my opinion and only my opinion…i love korean artists too like lee young ae,ji jin hee,kang dong won,lee byung hun,song chang ue…but of course i love more sjs-hjm.

  97. 97 : younggun Says:

    Why is this infiltrated with SJS-HJM shippers? This is a Road No.1 discussion, get over yourself, their drama is done, don’t try to fill this with comments about your shipping preference..We didn’t come for your shipping,we’re here for RD#1..Stop the arguments guys..And FYI to those who said that people don’t like the pairing, speak for yourself, I quite know a number of people in Korea who are into this pairing

  98. 98 : naomi Says:

    @IVY lmao I’d thought about that too, after seeing the endless kissing scenes they filmed..must be hard being KHN, seeing her history with her past co-stars she had a pretty hot list of male co-stars which eventually became hallyu stars as well, she must have made tons of anti’s now after every drama/movies she made with those hot actors..you know fangirls can be vicious when it comes to their man lol

  99. 99 : sjsfan Says:

    hope this drama captivate the heart of korean fans,poor rating so sad,kim ha neul and so ji sub supporters where are you guys?im sure your switching watching kim tak go king of baking,i saw the rating of this drama so high rating…gudluck road number 1

  100. 100 : noli Says:

    why do the HJM fan have to ruin this? we don’t care about your idol.this is for Road No.1..move on!

  101. 101 : Dandelion Says:

    A number of people in Korea = how many? Have you checked the number of people in korea ( and ELSEWHERE ) who are Not in favour of this pairing? Their drama Cain And Abel may be done n over with but it has made more lasting n profound impressions on the viewers so much so that we find it difficult to forget or get over it.I guess you are right: we should be discussing about Road No 1 here.Sorry but I will still root out for SJS although I find this drama very dull. Maybe it’s not my cup of tea?

  102. 102 : non's Says:

    For me, they are prefectly FINE… Kim Ha Neul is a TOP actress, they need her name, her acting skill to perform in this drama… I hv nothing against Han Ji Min, but since this is another story of SJS, I hope people stop degrading KHN just because of silly excuses to keep dreaming on SJS always partner with HJM.

  103. 103 : blue Says:

    KIM HA NEUL, hwaiting!
    People just jealous…
    I think whoever partner with their beloves so so much SJS will get the same…
    Feeling like they can perform better than the actress…
    Ha ha ha…

    I’ll continue watching this for Ha Neul… For Ji Sub n Kye Sang. For their hard work to play their best in this very tough project…

  104. 104 : Dandelion Says:

    Is ‘Jealous’ the only word that the socalled KHN fans can think of? You have no right to accuse us the viewers in general of being jealous. Of whom? Yet one of you said earlier that we are here to discuss about Road No 1. When we express our frank opinions and voice negative feedbacks such as the mismatched/incompatible pairing of $JS-KHN,etc,you retaliated by calling us ‘jealous’.You can’t expect us to make positive comments all the time.Personally, I couldn’t care less whether SJS – KHN are becoming a real couple or not.It’s none of my biz and none of yours too.

  105. 105 : sonic Says:

    You can’t blame us for thinking “jealousy” is the reason for the KHN hate when a lot of them had to brought up and compare the chemistry to HJM..why do they have to brought up HJM into this, if their intention is not against KHN??? Obviously there is a reason..

  106. 106 : sonic Says:

    I forgot to add, why do you always talk about the “Viewers” ..we are talking about the jealous fangirls here in the net, whose comments full of biased..no one said anything about the Viewers as in Korean viewers being jealous..

  107. 107 : Dandelion Says:

    Coz i’m one of those viewers who is here to chip in their frank opinions about the drama. As for mentioning HJM, it’s my right as a viewer to compare SJS’s costars in his recent dramas. I wonder why korean fans of SJS can be so fanatical n jealous of KHN? OMG.It’s a fact though that the pairing of SJS – HJM has garnered an enormous overseas following.

  108. 108 : celine Says:

    jealous of who?common guys…we we’re only expressing our opinion here..to those who are affected well it your lose..goodluck sjs-khn.

  109. 109 : sonic Says:

    who looked afffected? the fact that you had to keep mentioning about HJM on this, when she had nothing to do with this drama says it all..and PLEEEAASE your fact is not everyones..whatever! I aint arguing anymore , its useless..

  110. 110 : monterey Says:

    Oh yes!, guys just focus on the drama..

  111. 111 : jomz Says:

    this drama is boring….i’m finished now watching ep 1 and 2 on mysoju,i will not continue watching this drama anymore…i do watch now dong yi i love the korean historical than korean war,bye bye.

  112. 112 : jomz Says:

    thumbs down

  113. 113 : Suzy Says:

    To Blue: As if you know what Chemistry is, plus in the first place i did not imply that i knew what chemistry is, just mentioned about their acting effort..oh man, dont misinterpret me alright, sorry if there is a miscommunication..and for your qn on why they chose HJM, how in the world would i know why they picked KHN instead of HJM, i mean with you writing this, its obviously that your upset that HJM is not SJS co-star, man, this is just a drama for goodness sake, dont need to be so intense man about who/why is one another co-stars

    I agree with the rest of you all, lets just focus on this drama not on the other shippers of another drama, am liking what noli said in post no.100, “we don’t care about your idol.this is for Road No.1..move on!” yea lets just move and enjoy the drama man, its ending soon!

  114. 114 : blue Says:

    @ suzy, I don’t get it why u think I replied to you. My bad, I should write @ Jen actually…
    She write like this :
    the ratings consistently low because of SJS-KHN pairing,there is no chemistry at all,so boring very dissapointed.

    See ? She blamed everything to “no chemistry”… Which for me is so biased reason…
    Well, I’ll support road no. 1…
    Like I said b4, this is very tough project… They put so much efforts to bring us the most realistic war drama…
    I don( care with the rating… As long as I can enjoy 1 drama, its story n etc… Rating is just for fun to add…

  115. 115 : danish Says:

    Sorry, this is road number ten, not number one. It does not worth to spend time. I understand it is hard for fans of khn to accept that her performance is not good in this drama. The truth is not rosy. But, it is bad to say other viewers are jealous just because u can’t accept the negative comments of her acting.

  116. 116 : jen Says:

    hey guyz,although im an ardent fan of sjs-hjm shippers,i will continue 2 watch dis drama only 4 ji sub,i didnt want 2 argue u guyz,its just my opinion,@ blue PEACE!

  117. 117 : christine Says:

    i just watched episode 13 and wow more kissing scenes betweeen khn and sjs hahaha i guess more anti khn will get pissed off…

    no chemisty…no way man! the way they are kissing each other no one can deny that they lack of chemistry well i guess only those who are jealous of her will deny it lor…

    this drama is a once in a life time, only those who appreciate this sort of drama will love it and me for one will definitetly watch to the end and hopefully the ending will be a beautiful one …khn n sjs will always be together…

    khn will always be my no. 1 actress and she is one of the most versatile actress in korea!

  118. 118 : christine Says:

    oops i forgot …who cares about the ratings only those who are anti-khn will keep harping on this rating…

    sjs did mentioned in one of his interview that he is not worried about the ratings most important of all they did their best and act according to the script and in fact all those involved believed they have performed well without any mishap and injuries ….

    i too believed they have performed really well and despite the low ratings, i still believed it is worth watching, those who are not interested, its their loss!

  119. 119 : miyaki Says:

    Now, I gotta comment, I’ve been just lurking but seeing the comment about KHN’s acting not good,I gotta disagree on that..Whoever said her acting is bad is just plain hating, I gotta say compared to a lot of he actors here she did the best on acting, considering she even had the least scenes, she did her part well..

  120. 120 : xiexie Says:

    I see more kissing scenes..I can see more KHN hate coming soon lmao

  121. 121 : dom Says:

    omg, stars & 13 billion won just like this; it is the shame & the waste of money. It is the loss of time to see it.
    Evaluate the drama only base on the kiss & chemistry? Some argue that there is chemistry between leads & kissing scenes is real, then they conclude the drama is good. Such the shallow minds & that comments do not convince at all.
    I do not buy any comment. I try this drama & it is so boring. I can’t sustain & I stop seeing it.
    Viewers hate haneul because she kisses SJS? Omg, it is the thought of an autistic teenage. I’m sure autistic teenagers will continue to nag anybody who puts negative comment about haneul.

  122. 122 : choco Says:

    Woohoo, KHN’s performance not good ? Really ? Unbelieveable…
    As far I know, she is one of actress that recognized for her acting skills…

    The low ratings maybe because of this kind of war drama… Mostly people would prefer to romantic comedy, romantic, than a serious drama

    Seems like TOP stars like them, Sjs, Khn, Yks can not hold much attention…

  123. 123 : Haky Says:

    Many dramas, movie during period of war are very interesting, famous & hot, hot & i love them. Anyway, this one is too dull to continue. I do not know much about Korean actors, actresses but casts here do not impress me. Bye. If u say this one is the best & all r top stars, my God, the standard of evaluation is too low & too easy. See it yourself.

  124. 124 : pink Says:

    forgetable drama…no taste at all..try to watch other drama than this.

  125. 125 : ram Says:

    me too i better switch the other drama..than to continue til the end.i love the acting of the cast but the story is too lousy.

  126. 126 : bebz Says:

    the two lead actors are so good in acting.

  127. 127 : Dandelion Says:

    Btw Sonic, thanx for your tip.Baker King is indeed very entertaining.No wonder the majority of Korean eyes are glued to it.oh,it also stars Kim Eugene,who is one of my favourites.No offence to Road No 1. I just want to thank Sonic….

  128. 128 : celine Says:

    though i love my so ji sub but i switch now to another drama like dong yi and kim so roo..bye bye 4 a while my oppa see you again on your next drama.

  129. 129 : romeo Says:

    this is too unfortunate, if not for the mistake of pacing and editing this drama would’ve been very promising..i still commend the casts for the wonderful acting..i hope they get awards for the acting atleast, i can tell they worked hard!

  130. 130 : Tazza Says:

    Thanks Dandelion, I switch to Baker King too. It is enjoyable. I’m sick with this Road number… It seems that casts of this road put in efforts. However, work hard does not equal work well. Sorry!

  131. 131 : choco Says:

    @ haky, mind to at least mention war drama u watched that interesting, famous, hot & hot n u love them ?

  132. 132 : Suzy Says:

    To blue, ooo yea so sorry my mistake thought u were replying to me, now then i realised that u werent referring to me, sorry to jump into conclusion, anyway continue to support the actors and actress!!!!! Aja fighting, only left a few more eppys…

  133. 133 : blue Says:

    No probs, suzy… No offence taken… =)
    Let’s support road no 1…
    A few weeks to go…

  134. 134 : romeo Says:

    that said i will still continue to watch this drama and support the actors and actresses

  135. 135 : Suzy Says:

    :) yes lets support them all the way, btw wont it be ending next week? its not a 16 episode drama? or 20, i;m kinda confused, btw anyone know whether there are any sypnosis for the latest episodes? tooo eager to wait for the subs…haha, thanks

  136. 136 : hyuna Says:

    i love this drama. great acting!

  137. 137 : anna (frm: Philippines) Says:

    this drama is really great, I love the story very much. I love so ji sub, kim ha neul and yoon kye sung. their acting is superb. i cried a lot with the previous episodes. I’m sure these 3 lead stars will get an award. I’ll recommend this to others. Thanks again and still waiting for other episodes to come. sarangheyo, so ji sub, kim and yoon kye.

  138. 138 : noreen Says:

    this drama is very unique..realistic unlike other dramas..thumbs up for the acting!

  139. 139 : ManCalledGod Says:

    Yehhhh….. No doubt, this drama will win award of the worst drama of the year & its casts will win awards of the worst actor & actress. Yehhh…… i’ll vote for them for the above awards. This drama is so boring. Some positive comments here make me waste my time to try it. Farewell!

  140. 140 : Adbi Says:

    No, noooooo )))))) awards belongs to Rain, Lee Na Young & drama RUNAWAY. Both drama “a man called god” and “road number one” will get nothing. This drama is bad, bad ))))))))

  141. 141 : eric Says:

    how stupid was that! you were talking about giving an award to a drama you haven’t even seen, such bias..

  142. 142 : Towu Says:

    Worldwide, people, critics can predict what movie, drama will hit before it is going to theatre based on famous casts, famous directors, trailers, etc…. It will hit or not is…wait and see…. It seems that fan of Rain expect Rain’s drama will hit and fan think “road number 1” is too bad to compete for any award.

    It is STUPID when giving any award for a drama that many people do not want to see & ratings are always too low. It is stupid when giving any award to drama at rank 11th to 15th . Don’t loose your hope for award, try to lobby for any award. Good luck! Politics can bring award for this bad drama.
    The acting of casts is BAD. I switch to other drama now.

  143. 143 : celine Says:

    the ratings of this drama is poor getting lower and lower..while king baking get higher and higher…well the acting of the actors are great i think its the storyline.

  144. 144 : celine Says:

    so ji sub you are my fave korean actor..but still i will support you til the end of this drama.

  145. 145 : wynona Says:

    oppa although ds drama s a flop,i will continue 2 support u and i wl w8 ur next drama.tke cre always

  146. 146 : sil Says:

    hm…. waste time to see this……. synopsis sounds good but drama is not good as well as acting….

  147. 147 : julian Says:

    Heck, biased biased people giving comment of how bad ths drama without even bother to watch it… Such a childish..

    The acting of these three main cast is outstanding. No doubt…
    Maybe its just the storyline too slow, n feels like draggy…
    well, what;s u expect from a WAR drama anyway…

    To be honest, I don’t like Taegukgi also, though I must rise my thumps for JDG n Won Bin acting…

  148. 148 : Kang Says:

    I think viewers are not stupid to continue watching drama that they do not like unless they want to support their favorite actor. I do not support any actor & I’m tired with this bad drama so I drop it today. No bias, it is just because this drama is TOO BAD. I guess they drop drama because they do not like it too. To me, storyline is not bad but casts act poorly & it drags.

  149. 149 : rei Says:

    how can some ppl comment how bad the drama is when they didn’t even watch the rest of the drama..the storyline may not be as thrilling as Baker King but what do you expect this is based on real life, unlike unrealitic fantasy drama, this is real life situation, of course it would feel a lil draggy but its not about that, its about the story and the realization of war and what the ppl had dealt at that time..i must say the actors and actress did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.despite its lil errors in phasing this drama is still good and worth watching..deserves awards for acting and cinematography too

  150. 150 : christine Says:

    i totally agreed with you rei…

    i support this drama 101% and i really admire their performances especially khn, sjs and yks and infact all those involved in this drama have performed very well under such “uncomfortable” conditions…

    this is a war and romance drama and for me a very realistic one as I believed our grandparents have gone thru during the war…

    those who are not impressed should just try and asked their grandparents or grand-great parents what they think of the drama

    its indeed one of the most touching war and romance drama i have seen.

  151. 151 : frane Says:

    done w/ epis. 6-16 for a span of a week.. This drama is really good.. I cried for like 6 episodes.. I love the OST’s.. Myung ho! I missed you cute little angel.. can’t wait for the next episodes, I am sticking w/ this one.. Hwaiting!

  152. 152 : Suzy Says:


    yea i would have to agree with you frane!!! very touching movie…another 4 eppy more, fighting!!!

  153. 153 : amanda Says:

    i dont know but it feels like Pearl Harbor movie to me

  154. 154 : glee Says:

    Does anybody know who’s the doctor that Shin Tae Ho (YKS) is dating in ep 18?

  155. 155 : Suzy Says:

    Not sure who, maybe she is a newcomer….shin tae ho moved on with her already?? :(, though i preferred him with soo yoon….haii

  156. 156 : Kosj Says:

    This drama is the worst one I have ever seen. BYE!

  157. 157 : nyla Says:

    OMG, the chemistry on this drama is overflowing..i can’t help but smile and feel giddy everytime Jang Woo and Soo Yeon are together..The feelings look so real..ahhH

  158. 158 : sarah Says:

    Im gonna miss this drama..aww almost done. i love this drama, too bad it was very underrated..people needs to watch this..

  159. 159 : blue Says:

    enjoyed watching this drama. gonna miss jang woo and soo yeun; such special characters..the casts did a wonderful job, hoping for an award despite its poor ratings, they deserve it!

  160. 160 : christine Says:

    definitely the best drama i have ever seen!

    i m sure gonna missed this drama but I can watch again lor..

    khn and sjs’s chemistry is undeniable, the best and they have already accord the highest award from me lah.. i simply love their chemistry and really did a very impressive performance so touching and yes so real……

    yun kye sun also did well! congratulations to all of them.

  161. 161 : Suzy Says:

    What was the ending?? spoiler please….the eng subs are not out yet…isit a happy or sad ending?? thanksss

  162. 162 : glee Says:

    Hmm, I would say it’s a sad yet beautiful ending. Shall not divulge anymore or it will rob you the joy of watching it! Then again, I guess the message of this drama is that war is painful and costly.. And I suppose the producer wanted to make this point through the ending..

    But don’t worry! Jang Woo and Soo Yeon still ‘got together’ in the end.. though not in the way you would expect.

    You really should watch it the soonest the subtitles are out!

    PS. Does anyone know where did Jang Woo disappear to after the bridge incident? Why did he appear on the raft only 60 years later?

  163. 163 : Gadi Says:

    Bad drama…. just the waste of money & time….

  164. 164 : Suzy Says:

    Thanks glee for the spolier!!! one thing to ask, so does that mean that during the sepration….she was with Shin tae Ho??? hehehe, cos i actually preferred him to jang woo….no offense..thats my view…I went to watch the last eppy even though i dun understand what they were saying…

  165. 165 : nick Says:

    wahh..i miss jang woo and soo yeon

  166. 166 : baba Says:

    perfect cast,classic characters (jang woo and soo yeun) perfect OST, great love story, historic storyline, beautiful cinematography..totally underrated such a shame..deserves an award

  167. 167 : adks Says:

    let me finish your writing…….deserves award of the worst drama, the worst casts in decades of Korean Dramas….

  168. 168 : Suzy Says:

    Cant wait for the drama to come out in DVD, btw any idea if the OST is available to purchase it? Lol….ya nick, agree with you, miss soo yeon and jang woo, though i am sastified that she has shin tae ho with her…hehhee

  169. 169 : Nola Says:

    Like Jisub said, this drama may be underrated now, but in the future this will be a classic drama..with 2 very memorable couple and that is JangWoo and Soo Yeon; they are like the Jack and Rose of Korea..

  170. 170 : Kokopuffs Says:

    wow! looks like they cut this drama off at 16 episodes (instead of the original 20). appears thet KBS show “Legends of the Patriots” kicked their butts in the ratings. I guess there is a difference in war dramas.

  171. 171 : Suzy Says:

    wow Kokopuffs, sorry to dissapoint you but in reality there are 20 episodes, maybe you should check your facts first before actually commenting, though you are correct on the ratings part..I guess everyone has their own different mindset, to me this show ROCKS….thats my view….lol..

  172. 172 : Suzy Says:

    Hi all,

    sorry to ‘spam’ here, but finally i have finished watching Road No. 1 and am here to just give my 2cents worth of review…haha First off, to those who loves war drama but hates romance, then perhaps this drama is not for you. Like the catergory of melodrama, to me this drama fully portrays romance in these war drama.

    The drama plot to me is alright, although i think i dont really like is there is toooo much killings!! Lol, so many really good characters died in this drama :(, now i know its a war drama….but still maybe they could have left some alive…like Sergant Kwon??? oya anyone knows his real name? Anyway, all the actress and actors really did their roles and it is evident that they put in a lot of effort in their acting. SJS, YKS and KHN, really good job here!!! Graphics and special effects were great as well, the bombings look realistic! great effort by the production team!

    Though, which why i’ve no idea why the ratings didnt show it though, i guess once again, different people have different opinions and perhaps also due to other dramas competition.. Lastly, to those who really wanna give this drama another shot, do go for it, comradeship and love, basically i thinks what the director was trying to go for. Not forgetting the effects of war and stuff.. I guess like what SJS mentioned on him not giving up on this drama…yea i guess only time will tell whether it is successful or not, but Aja fighting.

    Not going to give away too much spoiler, but the only part im quite discontented abt is the period during the 60 years…its too vague, thought the director would wanna give us some update of what happen…but am satisfied with the ending la..nothing to complain about..its just too vague..haha to me it would seem that both YKS and SJS got their girl…hahahaha

    In my opinion, i would give it a 4/5 rating, dont bash me please..but i did enjoyed this drama, hehe, thanks for reading, and sorry if its too long.

  173. 173 : BarbieDoll Says:

    WTF, 4/5? really??? quite the pedantic fanboy. lol

  174. 174 : Suzy Says:

    yup really,though im sure u do not agree on that judging by the way you commented…im not here to change opinions just here to give my Own review, at least i dont go around labeling people, that would be too childish of me man.

  175. 175 : Kokopuffs Says:

    OMG, can you say “bitter”? You go Barbiegirl. we love you for telling the truth. aja fighting.

  176. 176 : Suzy Says:

    “bitter’, everyone here is entitled to tell their version of ‘truth’ anyway, no one is stopping them. LOL

  177. 177 : Dandelion Says:

    @ Suzy : That’s not what happened in this homepage when the drama was first telecast.You would not be labelled “the jealous fan girl” as long as you rolled out “the positive truth” about the drama.It’s plain ridiculous to expect everyone who drops by this hmpg to be smitten by the main cast n sing praises of the drama.
    How can the drama become “successful” in future when at the time of airing it was already “a flop”? The viewership ratings do indicate the viewers’ taste n preference after all n the ratings hv plunged to rock bottom as the drama drew closer to the (VAGUE?) end.But I admire So Ji Sup’s attitude toward his last project which has turned out to be a socalled white elephant.Instead of wallowing in self-pity n despair,SJS seemed to know how to find solace in his own failure n get ready to move on.Bravo oppa!HIMNEYO!

  178. 178 : Suzy Says:

    wow…chill relaz man,its just a drama… appreciate all of the frank and honest truths and opinions….Yea i will have to agree with you on :”it’s plain ridiculous to expect everyone who drops by this hmpg to be smitten by the main cast n sing praises of the drama.” as mentioned before this place is for everyone to air their views either negative or postitive, so no hard feelins man.. Yea, agreed that SJS attitude is encouraging! cant wait for his next project! wishing the rest of the cast a success on their next project!

  179. 179 : christine Says:

    hey suzy, you have my support.

    i love this drama
    i love the on/off chemistry of the 3 main cast khn,sjs and yks…
    yeah you can said that again, i really enjoyed the drama especially khn and sjs … i hope they will become a real couple!

    despite the low ratings and negative comments, i dont really care as i really enjoyed the drama and the fact is i dont mind watching it again and again cos i just love watching khn and sjs’s onscreen chemistry..

    i know i know those ppl who don’t like the pairing may think me ‘nuts’ but its one opinion so don’t get heated up ok!

  182. 182 : kdramalover Says:

    I don’t get at the end, where did he go for 60 years? Sailing? Anyone can explain this……

  183. 183 : Abbie Says:

    Hi Suzy

    I, myself i have not watched this drama eventhough i love both main characters but i hate War movie/drama in general. However, i do enjoy reading your comments especially @Suzy 172. i coudn’t help to burst out and laugh when you said “now i know its a war drama….but still maybe they could have left some alive” hahaha…

    thanks for the laugh

  184. 184 : delilah Says:

    Hi, I’m from Malaysia and i’ve watched hundreds of Korean dramas. For me, Road No. 1 may not be the best, but it is very interesting indeed, and i would very much recommend it all the fans out there.

    The story line is beautiful and the plot is exciting plus the actors brilliant acting. There s more actions and less romance compare to other Korean dramas, and though i’m a romance drama lover, I’m far from dissappointed. Road No. 1 will give you a new perspective on Korean dramas which you’ll find refreshing and different from the typical korean dramas.

    Happy watching.

  185. 185 : Suzy Says:

    Thanks christine!! haha, lol abbie, thanks for even reading my review! am glad that it made u laugh, hahaha, but i really wished they wont kill so many good character still, LOL, hehe, ok now its off to I am Legend! wat other dramas are u watching now??

  186. 186 : donnamari16 Says:

    I’ve watched this drama for 20 hrs non stop..it is a very good film. Koreans knows for being heroism, love for their country and countrymen even their lives will astakes, they will shed blood for the sake of Korea. It is inspiring one that the men and women of Korea will protect, love, live and die for being free. SJS is a very good actor! I cried watching every episode and on my thought that we are so lucky enough that we are not in the generations of world war and now we are all enjoying the so called “freedom” no matter what country, race or color that you have just lets have PEACE and respect to everyone! GOD BLESS! >>>@ suzzy ty..:)<<<

  187. 187 : delilah Says:

    I’Ve watched Road No. 1 and also Comrades, and Road. No. 1 is wayyyy….. better than Comrades. I really do not understand the low rating. For me, though the ending is not as how I would want it to be, but than it could’nt be helped if this story is based on true event.

    still, Road No. 1 is the best!

  188. 188 : carmen Says:

    I just finis yesterday the last episode, for those korean kids this will be a good drama to wash has some of your history, I know today they do not want to know anythin about war–nobody like war, but this is a good history on how one of their road was posses bu S-Korea…it was sad but good ending

  189. 189 : Zodd Says:

    Awful awful drama. Good thing it flopped.

  190. 190 : bee Says:

    i don’t get it, why it got low ratings???

  193. 193 : Darryl Says:

    the 2nd best south korean drama in my book. first one is IRIS.

  194. 194 : NeesHa Says:

    i really enjoy watching this drama though i don’t like war scene..
    everything’s just fine!
    i wonder how it got underrated…but i guess war is not a good setting instead..
    still i must respect 4 those hard works of actors and crews.. ^^

  195. 195 : avocado Says:

    I think the rating very low because the targeted audiences is not clear. For the drama war, I think there are too many love scene..but i think the ladies won’t feel this drama is their appetite because there are many bloody scene too…
    I prefer Shin Tae Ho in this drama because he doesn’t just follow what he want..he is a man with honour…comparing to Jang Woo that always do anything because of Soo Yeon..while there are another thing that should be his responsibility…And I love Tae Ho let the girl and also let go all of his grudges…I think while Jang Woo gone, he doesn’t married with Seo Yeon but just look after her..ohhh.. Tae Ho..you’re trully a man..
    YKS…great acting!!!!

  196. 196 : e Says:

    @Richard (215),

    Do the official site/other site have your detail? Please show us. Thanks.

  217. 217 : kay Says:

    that was such an amazing drama *_____* im still not over yet !!!! i still would like to clear up the ending though so i understand it more… D: so S P O I L E R A L E R T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    when jang woo disappeared.. where the heck was he for 60 years ?! :O i find it somewhat odd that he just suddenly floated back to south korea after 60 years :\ maybe he was part of the north but wouldn’t they kill him by then because he was the captain of the south? D: i mean, between those years he could’ve snuck back but why 60 years? D: such a big gap.. i dont really understand..
    and it’s a shame that su yeon died before jang woo had a chance to meet with her again D: i was so heartbroken omg … after all they went through i was still hoping that he would at least see her after 60 years LOL
    ahhhhh >< and another thing … on the bus with tae ho(very end), did jang woo pass away because he suddenly went all limp as if he fell asleep but he was reunited with su yeon in his 'dream' .. i cant tell if he was just sleeping or he actually passed away. it has been bugging me ever since i finished watching LOL any guesses?

    overall it's a shame that road number 1 had such poor rating D: IT'S SO UNDERRATED !!!! thats because when it came out, there was a lot of competition along with it :\ it's really a shame… because i thought it was really REALLY good despite how fast pace it was but i actually prefer fast stories than slow ones where they drag out the plot. it was so touching and the feelings were sooooooo real *___________* sometimes i even forget that these characters and events were fictional (for the most part i guess). .

    goodness.. i love so ji sub's work. ALL his movies, dramas , etc.. so effing good .he truely is talented *_______* im sad that road number one ended and i wish there was season 2 D: but that means it would be a continuation of the war which wouldn't be great lol still.. im still sooo attached to this story.. ill never forget it .

  218. 218 : kay Says:

    (a continuation of what i thought about the drama.. just a review i wrote somewhere else but might as well share here too ~)

    i thought this was an amazing drama and it exceeded my expectations of it. i don’t even know where to start .im still so attached to the story and characters *__* when i first started, i was pretty biased because so ji sub was in it (AND I EFFING LOVE HIM LOL) but after finishing this drama, i walked away satisfied and not because so ji sub was in it but because this drama was genuinely really really good.

    some may say it’s too fast or some parts didn’t make sense (eg. the breastfeeding part which i even thought was strange because she didn’t have a baby=no milk but i guess it was a way to soothe the baby?) BUT i actually LIKE fast paced stories. i absolutely hate stories that drag and develop after 5 or so episodes. road number one got straight to the point. there wasn’t enough time in the beginning to develop connections with the characters because everything was thrown at us at once but it was understandable because that reflected how war time was. everything happened so fast and no one had time to stop and breathe. it wouldn’t make sense if the story moved slowly because that would ruin the feeling of how the war was. that’s how i interpret the pace of the drama.

    a lot of people also do not like KHN’s acting but i disagree completely. how many of us here can cry so tragically like that ? let’s be honest–how many of us can actually pull her character off ? i can’t imagine how hard it must’ve been for KHN to really understand her character…how many times she had to review her script and change her mindset completely. and reminder, it was during a major event–the cold war. no matter how many stories we’ve heard or how much we study about its history, it’s NOT the same as actually physically being there during that time. KHN had to absorb everything in and try her best to become Soo Yeon. as an actress, she’s still learning through experiences so you have to remember and acknowledge that at least.. :\

    many people are also blaming the actors and actresses for certain parts that didn’t make sense or seem confusing but remember guys… it’s not their fault LOL they didn’t write the scripts.. it’s unfair to blame them for it when they didn’t have any control over it.

    war movies/dramas/stories are tricky. it’s a sensitive topic . i loveeee war movies and i thought this drama was extremely good. it was so touching and the emotions were so real . i keep forgetting that these characters aren’t real and most of the events did not actually happen. it’s just a shame that this drama is sooo underrated… maybe their target audience wasn’t right. maybe it’s because of their competition. maybe not that many people enjoy watching war films. there can be a number of factors but CERTAINLY NOT the fact that it was poorly filmed or the actors/actresses sucked. i refuse to accept that because it’s not true at all.

    i almost want to write a letter and have them rebroadcast this drama just to see if reactions would be the same or different LOLL seriously.. people are really missing out. i can’t emphasize that enough…

    don’t watch only one episode and jump into conclusions, make assumptions or judge. stick around and actually watch a couple more and THEN say something about it. watchiing only one episode isn’t considered ‘trying’. don’t be so quick to judge. this goes for everything else.

    OKAY LOL I’M DONE. this was a long rant/review . HAHAHAHA it just bothers me when people nit-pick about every little thing BUT barely even made an effort to give it a shot.

    road number one was beyond extraordinary and i stand by that :)

  223. 223 : Irene Says:

    I was afraid to cry thats why I didn’t want to watch it. But i gave in because I love the cast so much. It sure made me cry A LOT! But as I expected I would love it. Just didn’t want to be a cry baby. Its a must see. LOVED LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie. Every cast member did their best.

  224. 224 : Irene Says:

    It’s definitely not a bad drama in any way. I think most people couldn’t handle the deep feelings portrayed.

  225. 225 : Agnes Says:

    It’s really touch my heart & soul, no just the story line – love between Jang Woo & Soo Yeon, especially Jang Woo & Tae Ho, rival in love but like brother.

  226. 226 : isaac nartey Says:

    i simply loved this drama. everything about it moved me from the beginning to the end. it is truly a masterpiece.

  227. 227 : Jason Sud Says:

    What is it about the main actress? She’s really not pretty yet they use her in romantic dramas. Besides, her speech is always slurred.

  228. 228 : Mia Andriyani_Indonesia Says:

    Road No. 1 is good and interesting drama,, and this drama describes fighting of love, friendship, and loyality of our country,, good job for all crews, actors and actress,, and the main is the writer of the drama,,,

  229. 229 : toronto Says:

    WOW. wow and wow. Amazing drama. Amazing drama. A must see. I love you SO JI SUB. You’re SUPER HANDSOME AND AMAZING. My goodness, you’re one sexy man. I love Choi Min Soo as well. A masterpiece and a must see. Wonderful. Thank you to Jo Si Sub, Choi Min Soo and Yoon Kye Sang. Love this drama soooooooooooooo much….

  230. 230 : zarima Says:

    this kdrama is one of a kind.. love it.. two thumbs up…. so suspense and what a love story they have,, really a good one..

  231. 231 : Valerie Says:

    Road Number 1 is just a meaningful picture showing the effects of war, post traumatic distress syndrome and the sufferings of lovers separated. I still do not understand why the ratings were low and this drama did not win any award. I would have given all the awards for this drama. Best actor, best actress, best drama, best director. simply swept all the prizes. Keep it up So Ji sub. Please do not bedisheartened. You had a story to protray. It is just that the public has forgotten about the war how tKoreans sufferred. I remember as the Malaysian rubber prize shot up blecause of this war.

  232. 232 : Valerie Says:

    So far that I have seen So Ji Sub’s dramas, I find that it has dealt with alot of issues.
    “Sorry I love you” dealt with children sent for adoption overseas and abandoned on the streets to fend for themselves. This must be true otherwise the director would not have dared portray this.
    “Kain and Abel” dealt with sibling jealousy and how it can take a very severe turn.
    “Road Number One” is such a good drama in that even though the budget was high, it honoured the people of South Korea at that time whilst the rest of the world slept and Malaysian rubber tappers were so rich that they bought refrigerators even though they had no electricity to store their clothes.
    “It happened in Bali” was also a tragedy stemming from a culture which must match wealth with wealth and be blowed with love.
    I have not seen “glass slipper” to make any comments but it must be equally good.
