    Mi Poong Says:

    Watched the first two episodes. Something missing. I don’t know if it is the script, the casting or the directing. Si Wan gave an awesome performance in Misaeng but in this drama, the characters are not all that interesting for some reason.

    The girl’s father going to such extremes to protect his daughter and his business was an interesting idea in the plot, but a betrothal could have remedied the threat. Given that wasn’t a viable option for reasons not revealed to us, I’m hoping that the rest of the story will keep me interested.

    fara Says:

    Eventho the rating is low, I personally think this drama is nice and interesting. The relationship between the three main characters is sweet. Yoona play her role so well and natural, I can’t imagine another actress can take her shoes as Eun San. Kudos to Yoona!!

    Nonuts Says:

    @Kinglovers. Yeah. It’s in the synopsis that they both fall in love with the girl. I expect the prince will get the girl in the end but not without carrying the weight of guilt for being instrumental in his friend’s unhappiness.

    Anny schuller Says:

    I wonder if the crown prince prefer Eun san than Dan.. Dan is lovely, nice and beauty…so sad if she go to Yuan… can’t wait to the next episode… yoona n siwan great couple

  33. 33
    Richard Blezzer Says:

    Why the rating so low? I like this drama especially the main actor and actress.. but I’m feel sad with Dan and Rin.. I think the crown prince will choose Dan to be the crown princess to save her from his mother…but he still want to get his true love with Eunsan

  34. 34
    Yan won Says:

    Can’t wait for next ep !!!! Daebaaak !!!!

    Kinglovers Says:

    Crown prince will confuse which one of them to be his wife. If he choose Dan, maybe Eunsan have to go to Yuan. Hard choice to do !!! Can’t wait for next eps.. Hope crown prince choose Eunsan & save Dan !!! Crown prince \(^_^)/

    Rachel Rich Says:

    The crown prince upset cause he didn’t know anything about Eunsan and wang rin keep say nothing. Won and rin fighting. Rin feel sorry for Eunsan cause the crown prince choose Dan. Eunsan got punishment from the queen cause she and her family lying and she have to leave

  41. 41
    Kinglovers Says:

    OMG, Won choose Dan to be his wife !!!! Because he want to save Dan, What about Eunsan? Dan so pretty, but I wish won married with Eunsan… they looks like perfect couple… It’s all because of Rin !! Rin didn’t say the truth to Won… if Rin said all about Eunsan, maybe Won can take different path..won & san will be together…

    Khan won Says:

    I LOVE MONDAY BECAUSE THE KING LOVES… hope Wang Won and Eunsan love each other !!!!

    mamie Says:

    Good drama. great character. wondering why the rating not so good in korea

  45. 45
    Mei Mei Says:

    I think both Won and San chose friendship over love. San didn’t want to cause a rift between Won and Rin.
    Won chose Dan as the Crown Princess so that Rin won’t have to leave for Yuan.

  46. 46
    Park Wong Says:

    Poor Won…he didn’t get his love… so sad to see Won… he is so kind to his friend… actually I don’t know which one of them get San heart?

  47. 47
    Caroline Says:

    I think know why the rating is low cause they didn’t want her crown prince didn’t get his love (San) and because Rin falling love with San too…They think his best friend and his love decieve him many times..

  48. 48
    Hilary Says:

    You are right. I think that too. Looking forward Won and San together

  49. 49
    Nonuts Says:

    Have to say Park Hwan Hee is devastatingly beautiful. She reminds me of Song Hye Kyo.

  50. 50
    Nonuts Says:

    If San ends up with Rin it will be because Won loves them both. That kind of love would elevate the story. Afterall the heart chooses and there is little one can do about it when it comes to love. I really like the friendship between Won and Rin.
