    Hanako Says:

    By Logic, this is a good drama. Exciting, thrilling, romantic and in many ways I think it is one of the best Historical drama this year, regardless whoever the actor is. All actors & actresses were excellent and a bit of comedian in it, every drama has its own kind of gimmick, the ghostly part is good too, and I think I enjoy the drama and will also rate it as one of the best historical this year.
    And also the best love story this year is She is Lovable, Fated to Love and You are all surrounded. Congrats to all these drama writers and producers. Ganbate!! Omedeto!

    I like Jung IL woo since i first watched him in “take kare of the lady” and i so love all his dramas. While i so like him, i think his chemistry with Go sung hee is not good. I wished to see him, in a new drama with a better actress.

    Rose Says:

    I just saw Ep 12 on the 25th. I like the story line and have been enjoying the ghosts that are around Lee Rin. I wish they would have been more involved in the story though.

    I thought it was funny when Sa Dam told the Prime Minister about the dragon that was to come. The Prime Minister had NO idea what Sa Dam was talking about. I thought wait till he sees the dragon in action.

    OK OK OK Says:

    if not for Jung Il Woo, I wont be starting to watch the Night watchmen.
    I also like 2nd male lead Jung Yoon Ho (TVXQ) lead actress Go Sung Hee.

    But 24 episodes is too long and draggy. I keep falling asleep @ ep 22,23.24 because the story keep repeating and repeating until i find it very bored & it takes me a few weeks to finish.
    20 episodes will be good – cut off those repeating scenes…………..

    Finally i manage to finish & luckily its a good ending drama 🙂

    Now going to watch 2nd episode of SPY 🙂

    utada Says:

    I only started watching this because of DBSK’s Yunho. He has so many fans in Germany. We love you ^_^

    The male lead is okay.
    Go sung hee is a horrible actress!! blank dead eyes, poor sageuk dialect, fake crying scene, wooden and stiff….she’s so bad that she can’t act her way out of a barrel.

    shannon Says:

    minmin Says:

    BAD BAD BAD. It was really boring and we just couldn’t wait for it to end. I read some of the reviews of this drama and they were really bad and I have to agree. The storyline was BAD! Bad acting, bad story (writer’s fault), bad direction and production. It’s like anything goes with this drama – can transport from this world to the underworld – no need to seek out how to find a portal to go there. Sadam has dark powers but how come only selectively used vs. using it to full extent to control and eliminate. Really crappy drama. The lead actress Go Sung Hee cannot act. Kim Sung Oh aka Sadam – his character as well as his acting was bad!! Wasted our time watching this!!!
