    Elsie C Says:

    Hmm. I’m not too impressed or keen to watch this drama – too long and looking at the pictures, I may not like the actor. Give me Dong Yi anytime. Dong Yi is the best Korean drama I have ever watched. Love the king and Dong Yi characters. I bought the DVDs and keep going back to watch certain scenes. Anyone out there haven’t viewed Dong Yi MUST see it. You will love it!

    Kim G Says:

    I am from the Caribbean and have no connection to Korea or the far east. I became addicted to Korean historical drama through Jewel in the Palace shown on local TV (I bought DVDs) and have since seen Dong Yi and Yi San via streaming online. The action and stories are tremendously moving; the costuming, details of the culture, politics and religion, food, lifestyles of all levels in society from those times were so very interesting and captivating. The fact that much of the story lines are rooted in actual people and events makes it that much more compelling. I cried like a baby in episode 62 and 73 and 77 of Yi San, which Is my all-time favorite show. I congratulate the directors, actors and all involved in sharing these gems and this historical culture with the rest of the world.

    I love Yi San. The story is good. Lee Seo Jin is the best. I start liking all his drama after Yi San.
    Who gave birth to the prince that became the king after Yi San?

    i am agree with peter: Jewel in the palace+Dong Yi=Yi San

    Kim Says:

    77 episodes and not one kiss?!? There was not enough romance between Song Yeon and Yi San. Dae Su was on screen twice as much as the lead actress. This was more about two best friends than a love story. I had to skip over 10 episodes because the story line just got too repetitive and frustrating. I’ve watched many dramas and there was just not enough chemistry between the lead couple. Song Yeon was just not a big enough part of the series. Least favorite drama so far. And the costumes…. Seriously yarn on the officers hats?

    Watercolor Says:

    I’ve tried watching yi Sam a couple of times and then give up watching it…I really liked how Lee Seo Jin played King Jeongjo…I think he did an excellent job. I especially liked most of the characters and actors that played the parts. However…one character I found that gave me the most frustration was Song Yeon. I found her character in Yi San was just wimpy unlike Dong Yis leading lady. Dong Yi had a backbone and knew how to use it wl but still manage to be sweet and endearing. However, Song Yeon was spineless and it seemed she liked the king more than he liked her. I find these situations kind of annoying because that’s not a beautiful love story…that’s tragic and annoying! SONG YEON!! Quit being so dim witted and spineless!

    Anyways, I think the writer did a really good job on some of the story line of Yi San and the dialogue was intellectual and fitting for that time period. BUT the romance was really…really lacking. This was one of the reasons why I stopped watching Y San–besides Song Yeon’s annoying character–that it would get utter boring just watching politics about 3/4 of an episode. It’s nice to have some of it but not when it takes up most of 77 episodes. Also, in this day and age when people are apprehensive about watching a woman becoming a concubine and this show lacking romance with all the concubines seemingly added in well…this show could get some thumbs down. Unlike Dong Yi where the king had concubines but he only added them and his only foolish mistake was Jang-Ok–she was a witch. Dong Yibwas the last one and you could actuallyb see how much he loved her through the events that occurred. For those who have not watched either Yi San or Dong Yi and considering this one I would reccomend Dong Yi the most but if you really want to watch this one go ahead. But I DO reccomend watching this one first so you won’t get your hopes up if you watch Dong Yi first and Yi San second. That’s what happened to me and many others. However, if you don’t care for romance and like watching shows filled with corrupted douchebags trying to take hold of the government than this is for you!;)

    duygu Says:

    Congratulations to all of you…We as the Turkish people like many of your tv series, Yi San is the example of these…
    I especially enjoyed while watching the dialogues between the old and new secretary,Hong and Jeong.However,my favourite one was Hong , he was very interesting and different character, the scenarist mentioned him very well with the help of Han Sang Jin’s role skills. I also appreciate the beautiful voices of the professional Turkish theatre players that gave special spirit to the characters.The nature was charming and I wonder how you acted in such a cold wheather,probably using plasters. I think we feel close ourselves to your tv series especially to the historical ones, because some of the fundamental islamic ethical principals are indicated,also the Koreans are really special for us that we never forgot the friendship of them at the world cup match.Best wishes and good luck…
