    Am happy to know once again Lee Mi Yeon has a new drama series coming soon. I’ve been waiting to see her on t.v. again. her last drama series I’ve seen was, she played the role of the last empress of Korea killed by the Japanese. Now she’s back, I’ll surely watch this drama and hope the story is worth watching. Lee Mi Yeon, hope to see you more on t.v. in the future and more more…..more power to you!!!

  17. 17 : eugene Says:

    This drama is not bad but the female lead is so old and ugly. It would be better if they changed the main actress. She’s so old compare to the other casts.

  18. 18 : Koreaphile Says:

    Unfortunately some of the bloggers here are so stupid that I want to throw up! This is one fine Korean TV drama series that I have watched. The visuals, the music, the costumes, the actors and the actresses, the plot, the timing and the cutting and English translation – It is just a first rated drama series! Great work! Korea, you have hope and keep it up! My thums up.
