    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?

    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.

  3. 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…

    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.

  5. 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..

  6. 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..

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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..

  10. 110
    monterey Says:

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

  11. 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.

  12. 112
    jomz Says:

    thumbs down

    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!

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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!

  18. 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!

  19. 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..

  20. 120
    xiexie Says:

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

  21. 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.

  22. 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…

  23. 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.

  24. 124
    pink Says:

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

    bebz Says:

    the two lead actors are so good in acting.

  27. 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….

  28. 128
    celine Says:

    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!

  30. 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!

  31. 131
    choco Says:

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

  32. 132

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.

    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!

  40. 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 ))))))))

    eric Says:

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

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  44. 144
    celine Says:

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

    sil Says:

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

  47. 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…

  48. 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.

  49. 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

  50. 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.
