    So depressing! Guess they had to stick to history. What a cruel way to die – in a box. I’m left unsatisfied coz all the baddies esp the Minister of Defense didn’t die. This is a show that started well and went downhill ever since they replace the poster girl with the adult. Also it is a show where the baddies triumphs. I will NOT watch Sado in 2015. Don’t like sad endings. ..

    i did comment on this page almost two years ago. i had the desire to watch the series then. recently, i’ve watched the movie ‘the throne’, which is a contraction of the 24 episodes, so that’s that for prince sado’s story for me. i can’t be watching it again because it’s sad.
