    i love this drama i watch it so closely just like a student who revise his or her lesson very thoughtfully . i enjoyed watching it for the second time than i did in the first time ,because now i know many korean words that helped me to enjoy watching this unique drama . what amazes me in this drama is the way that shows the greatness of the koreans in those days , theres chemistry ,physics and even biology represnted in the manufacturing beautiful colors from natural elements and how they react with and change color with certain substances .physics is shown in the movement of things affected by the prusser of the wind and so on .. i ll cherish this beautiful drama in my heart and many thanks to the beautiful actress who acted the role of shin yun bok and made a legend of this creative artist .. please keep on airing such distinguished drama

    Lorem Says:

    The main character had no redeeming qualities to speak of, it was difficult to warm up to her. She seemed to be inept at responding believably, to events unfolding around her. And left a trail of destruction in her wake. It suggests to me the writers were brain-dead.

    This rates near the bottom of my least liked KDrama.

    Lorem Says:

    I’ll take off the other glove now and add; the sapphic subtext was one of the things that irked me about this production. And the moral turpitude I guess comes from its principal author, made it difficult to endure. There was contrived sentimentality but little to back it. There were several moments of; “Wha the..?”, “Huh?” and “Aishh!”.

    I came to KDrama’s recently, and have found a source of wonderful entertainment I can recommend to family and friends. We get mostly hollywood and local shows. But I can honestly say KDramas are better in that, they don’t assault you with cynicism and gratuitous sex. Oh and that misguided notion encouraging you to go change the world into something better. That would be like encouraging the inmates to take control of the correctional facility and fashion it to serve their whim.

    This show, did not do it for me but I learned a few more korean words ..hehe.

    Lorem, geez, you recently discovered Korean series and already felt to be such an authority to give this really insightful comment. Sapphic? Did you notice that the series is in period style. Did you make the effort to do a little series on this? No? Pitiful. You would have discovered that this is an award winning novel converted into a drama series. The lead actress is ‘inept at responding believably’, would you know of a better Korean actress who could do better? Have you seen her other works? How many Korean series / movies have you seen so far? You are watching these to improve your Korean? Big words coming from a newbie like you are irresponsible and not constructive at all. It would do you a little good to extend your experience before feigning authority. If not, then leave the comment section for those who know what the heck are they talking about.

    Eli Redondo Says:

    The film is wonderful except for the main actress. She is not believable amasquerading as a boy. She is puny and looks like a girl dressed as a boy.

    Elsa Gomez Says:

    I am watching this drama because I like Park Shing Young. He is a great actor and sexy too even tough he has to wear the traditional clothes and that funky silly hat.

    Elsa Gomez Says:

    The dean of the art school is alwsys the same mesn guy in every traditional drama. Se guy always??? He must be the only actor they can hire to play all these mean parts. How can that be? He plays it so well that I can hate the old goat in every drama!!

  20. 120
    Elsa Gomez Says:

    This is a very beautiful story of the history of Korea and is the best Korean traditional drama I have seen so far!!!!!

    Hello, I am in Nigeria. I totally love the series. I stumbled on a few episodes. For those saying that d main character did not play the role of a boy well,I did not know d character was a girl even after watching many episodes.
    Please, how can I get the full series? Please can anyone assist me?

    moonLOVER Says:

    @whinny yes i do agree with you. Main actress portrayed her role well. I forgot YB is a girl. That’s why moon moon got best couple award 🙂

    @eli redondo are you kidding me? I think there’s no way to say it’s great drama without main characters? LOL it’s the funniest joke in the world 🙂

    joana Says:

    i like this drama.honestly speaking i dont quite like moon geun young but she did an excellent job in this drama.of all the dramas that i have seen where females pretend to be males,this is the best.the plot was good and so was the chemistry.i’m not a big fan of huge age difference in relationships but this one worked.i didn’t understand her relationship with jeon yang bcoz at first it looked she really loved her and also am not happy with the ending.it left me with so many unanswered questions.but all in all worth watching.

    @Lorem You’re a homophobic bigot. And “misguided notion encouraging you to go change the world into something better. That would be like encouraging the inmates to take control of the correctional facility and fashion it to serve their whim”? Really? Would that REALLY be like encouraging inmates to control a correctional facility?
