Written by The Grand Panjandrum

Immortal Yi Soon Shin
11 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is awesome!! This is the BEST show I have ever seen on TV or in the movies. And to know that it is actually a part of history is even better. The acting is excellent and the music is great! I only wish they would come out with an OST. Kim Myoung (YSS) is such a wonderful, moving actor! It's no wonder he won the 2005 Korean Drama Best Actor Award. He certainly deserved it! All the actors/actresses are great. This historical drama is a MUST SEE for everyone from beginning to end. My kids even enjoy it! It's that good! You go through so many emotions when watching this show! And the music during the battle scenes is awesome! It really gets you into it and fired up!
