    @Admin: it’s Confucius, not Confusion (see above).

  2. 2 : Armiora Says:

    I’m going to try and watch this for Cha Eun Woo. Let’s hope Shin Se Kyung’s acting has improved…

  3. 3 : Fighting SSK Says:

    Watching for shin se kyung 🙂 I’m always looking forward to your dramas. I seriously hope those internet bullies keep their cruel and mean comments to themselves and if they don’t I hope they meet mean people like themselves in real life who put them down every step of their life. Fighting SSK

  4. 4 : Sara Says:

    Im so excited for this drama and looking forward for a new historical for Shin Se Kyung. She is truly one of the few Korean actress who looks amazing in historical.

  5. 5 : N Says:

    Can’t waaaaait! I’m watching this because of Cha Eun Woo! 😀

  6. 6 : Cleiton Silva de Moura Says:

    Always supporting Shin Se Kyung, she is good and this drama will be nice.

  7. 7 : Bukola Says:

    Can’t wait

  8. 8 : Marlexis Says:

    Hi Everyone,
    I am a University student doing currently my dissertation on how Korean tv drama influences potential tourists to visit Korea. I would be glad, if you could complete my questionnaire. It takes around 5 minutes to complete. Thank you and I appreciate it in advance.


  9. 9 : Kay Says:

    I’m really looking forward to this drama. Shin Se Kyung and Cha Eun Woo look beautiful together!

  10. 10 : Neno Says:

    Can’t wait for Shin Se Kyung new historical. I love her in historical. She was the best face for these traditional Korean customs. No other actress can compete with that.

  11. 11 : Namshin3 Says:

    Shin Se Kyung is an excellent actress. that’s why she gets the best leading men. love these two leads.

  12. 12 : Fado Revere Says:

    I get so annoyed when English translators use the word “skies” as substitute for the word “heavens”. Why don’t the use the correct word. One might think these translators are living in a Orwellian virtual reality.

  13. 13 : Tess king Says:

    @admin..There are two Jung Hwan in the character listed , I guess the other one should be Jung chan since I saw him already in the first episode ..

  14. 14 : Diane Says:

    This drama is not being shown in Redlands, California. Instead MBC is showing Radiant Office!!!!

    I was looking for to Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung!!! It’s a nice change from present to historical kdramas!!!

    I didn’t even get to see the end of One Spring Night. Just got to see 16 episodes. It was taken off the air.

  15. 15 : Drama Fan Says:

    @ Diane —

    Same thing is happening here in the Chicago area as I mentioned to you on the One Spring Night sight.

    On top of that, when Blessing Of the Sea finished, they are now airing Special Labor Inspector Jo which just finished airing May 28. I thought that was a great drama, loved the story and cast, but who wants to see all these re-runs???

    If they are going to show re-runs why don’t they show some dramas from 10 years ago that maybe people have not seen???

    Wonder what is going on with MBC. It is going down hill as far as I am concerned. I am not happy about this at all.

    Wonder how many people are watching Everybody Say Kungdari that is airing around 8:00 a.m. Monday – Friday???? I have not seen any of it.

    I don’t have time to watch all these shows on the computer.

  16. 16 : Sarasa Says:

    @Diane and @ Drama fan, I’m not sure if u have Netflix, but it’s being aired on Netflix. I watch it there. However, I do watch many other dramas at kissasian and dramafever. U can check both sites to watch the newest dramas for free.

  17. 17 : Paoare Says:

    Dramafever has been taken down!

  18. 18 : Laurent Says:

    I dont think i will continue watching this drama,, i think its too boring both the character or the storyline, not much progress…
