    it’s a very good watch. the last episodes were more dramatic than the first ones building up the story. as usual, the veteran actors delivered well. this is the first time i’ve watched L, and i thought at first that his character was lame, and lame he acted, but in the last episodes, he was superb.

    So sad, I don’t want this drama to end. 🙁 The drama has grown so much on me. It was beautifully written. Superb acting by all the actors especially Yoo Seung Ho. His acting never fails to impress.

    This drama is very highly recommended! 🙂

    I like both leads and I have high hope that this will be a very good drama but at the end I am slightly disappointed. The acting is good but the story is a bit lame. I keep waiting for the crown prince to do something smart to defeat the villain but nothing like that happened. The crown prince made many decisions to get himself killed but only survive because of luck. I wish the hero to be a little bit smarter than that.

    Definitely in my list of top favorite historical drama, alongside Jewel in the palace, the moon embrace the sun, Jumong and the legend.

    Despite all of the drama flaws and controversy, this is indeed a high quality drama.

    The whole idea of the story, the perfect cast, the cinematography, the music, the sound effect, the powerful yet heartwarming lines of the crown prince absolutely make this drama very recommended to watch.

    Great job for all the cast and production staff. Kudos to the cinematography director, music director, sound director. As for the writer, for first project in historical drama, it is quite good. Hoping that you all will be a better writer and will wait for your next improved writing also.

    Ruler: Master of The Mask (RMOTM) OST and BGM | A Transient Wanderer Says:

    […] Ruler: Master of the Mask or Emperor: Owner of the Mask is my latest watched drama. It is a drama I have been waiting for since a long time ago after both @wow_kimsohyun (as Han Ga Eun) and Yoo Seung Ho (as crown Prince Lee Sun) confirmed as the main leads. […]

    I was looking forward to the end of this drama.
    But now that it has ended, I feel somewhat sad.
    I really love this drama.
    Love Kim So Hyun 🙂
    Has been loving her since she was younger and act as a younger version of the main character.
    And will always support her next project.

    Love this drama and I dont feel bored watching it because every scene is intense. I love the character of Hwa Gun, her love for the Prince is selfless, I feel sad that she die.All actors are the best and also the soundtrack is cool.
