Ji Sang (Ji Sung) is a gifted seer, born with the ability to see into people’s pasts and futures. There are those who believe falsely that he has dark supernatural powers, thinking him possessed by ghosts. When he comes of age in the late Goryeo era, he becomes a scholar of divination, and a reader of geography, faces, and the like to tell fortunes — an area with much influence at the time. He eventually becomes a “king-maker,” who holds the key to a major political shift in the overthrow of Goryeo and the rise of Joseon. He help the General Lee Sung Gye (Ji Jin Hee) become the first king of the Joseon Dynasty.

Lee Jung Geun (Song Chang Ui) is Ji Sang’s rival. Hae In (Kim So Yun) is Ji Sang’s main love interest and Ban Ya (Lee Yoon Ji) is Ji Sang’s first love. (source: dramabeans)

    you are definitely right when you say i should “eat first to know the taste”. Thing is, sometimes, drama with very high ratings in Korea are’nt that famous in foreign countries, for example: My Name is Kim Sam Soong.
    But you are right, there are lot of awesome dramas with low ratings

    45@Hanako…..it’s a pity that you don’t like kim so yeon……i don’t really like her in ‘all about eve’ but i never like the drama ‘all about eve’ after all so i don’t really bother about her acting in it….But i can see in IRIS and in prosecutor princess, she’s quite good an actress…i really like how serious she took her acting…..for me she’s good. In this drama, at first i don’t really want to watch it because Lee Yoon Ji took the role as the ex-love for the hero beacuse i love lee yoon ji. However when i know that kim so yeon will take the role as the main love stream, i decided to take a tour…..hope it will be nice……………

    I’m only on Epi. 4 & I hope their ratings improve for those who really like this drama. I think this drama has great acting, but I haven’t connected with or have an affinity with the characters they portray. If i don’t care about what happens to the characters, what’s the point in watching? Will watch a few more episodes & hope I can like somebody. I really miss Faith.

    Is it strange to be rooting for Ji Jin Hee? I think the other actors and actresses really does not pull me with their acting.

    I’m gonna watch becoz of Ji Jin Hee.. MMuuaahhh

    glace Says:

    I like this drama because I think it shows more history than “Faith” did. So, I’m mostly enjoying the history and hope it continues. The actors are okay, but I especially like Ji Jin Hee and am most curious about his story.

    A Great Fan of History Says:

    This drama is the continuation of The Soldier (God Of War) korean drama tv series wherein Yuan dynasty (Mongols/China) invaded Goryeo (Korea). Yuan Dynasty controls Goryeo by appointing King who will be loyal to the them and dethroned whenever shows a sign of rebellion.

    King Gongmin (appointed King Goryeo) rebels against Yuan Dynasty but can’t produce a succesor/child so he adopted Banya Son (Monino) later King U. Yuan Dynasty was crumbling because of the new Empire Ming Dynasty has risen. King Gongmin was a Pro-Ming so he was assassinated by General In-Im (Anti- Ming) and appointed King U as king.

    King U ordered General Yi Seonggye to attack the Ming Empire but he refused to obey instead he returned to Kaesŏng and, after overpowering the royal court’s defenders and removing (then killing) General Choe Yeong, Yi Seonggye usurped the throne from Goryeo’s Dynasty and took control of the government. King U was deposed and replaced with his son King Chang, but only one year later both of them were poisoned, and replaced with prince Gongyang.

    swift Says:

    No wonder in the drama Faith, the High Doctor was worried when she saved the live of Yi Seonggye, as he would later kill Gen Choe Yeong. Also, the High Doctor could not bear to tell the Queen that she will not be able to produce an heir.

  15. 65
    swift Says:

    This drama would require much patience to watch and understand the plot. The storyline is rather twisting (hitting around the bush) with much of plots that centres on the relationship of Gen In Im with high prietess plus the Seer himself in trying to find his mother. Since this is going to be 36 episodes, there is much more story plots that the writer will be dragging into the drama until in the end when Yi Seonggye will be the key person determining the future king.

    kramden Says:


    I agree with you…watching this drama really need a long long patience…unlike other dramas the build up is too slow or to set up the plot of the whole story and characters seems to long… so i find now the reason why this drama seems to suffer a low rating even though the cast are really good and famous…..actually while watching this drama sometimes i want bang my head in the wall haha..

    Thank you for the historical info #63 @Great Fan.. Very useful.

    I too am a fan of history and period dramas. I love the court protocols mainly because of elegantly it is structured to support a hierachical order whose function it is to protect its people. Something not understood today nor taught.

    But I would concede that such a system would succeed only if the king were truly pious. Power corrupts as you well know.

    The drama is not holding my interest as much as expected. Maybe because I am a little put off by the plastic in some performers. Hardly suited to period dramas. But thankfully there aren’t bleached blondes, pierced nose rings or rap music.

    jenna Says:

    Hope the rating will get better… But I will watch it anyway, don’t care about the rating. Fighting .. Kim So Yeon !! You are the reason I watch this long drama.

    unknown unknown Says:

    In episode 18, did I hear correctly that the King’s mother said that the King is only 40 years old? How could that be or did I get it wrong?

    Kat Says:

    We are enjoying this drama, LOVE Ji Jin Hee and the actor playing Mok Ji Sang. Sorry to see ratings are low, can anyone tell me if the 36 episodes have already been filmed? I would hate for this one to be cancelled without seeing all 36 planned episodes.

    Somethings I do have to shake my head at, how does a ‘great Seer’ not know his foster father is reporting things to the bad guys? How is the Seer’s mother, the Princess, so clueless about so much? LOL

    It is still fun to watch, glad they have put as much humor in this as they have.
