| Very good Korean drama
This will always be one of my favourite series. Mostly an admirer and fultoo fan of Hollywood TV series like Lost, Battlestar Galactica, 24, Prison Break, Smallville, etc., I've only watched and loved this non- English series.

Awesome music, nice action, great drama, enthralling characters... all make it into a must-watch TV series for all. Although it's mostly an imaginative and fictional recount of a real historical figure, the production values are v.good, and the best part is the acting of lead actors, and the soulful music embedded in almost every episode. The drama is engaging, along with impressive action scenes between the two leading actors.
