    Hi Korean Drama Lovers,

    I am hooked to this drama (The King n I)…i bought the whole series….with English sub-title…..its really interesting and I am into episode 43…..getting more n more dramatic….lots of murders n tears….hicks..hicks..hicks,.
    looking forward to getting the new drama “Chuno” ????

  29. 29 : JR Says:

    The time line of this historical drama and another, “Dae Jang Geum” overlap. These stories show the king–who flips his wig in the later episodes of this story–as the same king in :Dae Jang Geum” , but with a totally different personality, to say the least, There’s also a Jang character in this story toward the end who is the polar opposite of the saintly Dae Jang Geum as well. Anybody have insight on which story is closer to historic truth?

  30. 30 : mutiara Says:

    this drama was wondreful.. i love historical drama!

  31. 31 : mel Says:

    hmmm… i want to watch this movie…. i think this movie so interesting…
