Korean Tour De Force Redefines the Historical Drama
27 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This entire series is an exceptional creative achievement in all respects. The screen writing, character development and cinematography all combine to make one of the best viewing experiences I have ever had. I first became addicted to the excellence of Korean film and television when I watched the superlative "Dae Jang Geum" (Jewel in the Palace) series. Jumong equals and possibly even exceeds that benchmark series. I have watched many Korean films and television shows, most of which are very good. Jumong is as good as it gets. The show is a loose dramatization of Korean history and the efforts of Jumong to unite the kingdom and then drive out invaders. The character development here is truly awesome with about 20 significant characters that the viewer will come to know very well indeed. Actor Song Il-Kook's charismatic portrayal of Jumong is right out of an Errol Flynn swashbuckling adventure. This actor has an on screen presence and possesses a supreme confidence that simply no longer exists in American cinema. Supporting characters So-Sun-Oh (Hye Jin-Han) and the androgynous and ever deadly Sayong (Soo-bin Bae) enrich this story beyond words. The plot is truly Machiavellian and develops in a way that often grays out simple good and evil. For those equestrians out there, and I know there are many, you are in for a treat. You will see work by all of the actors on horseback that has has not been seen since the heyday of American Westerns of old. Each actor was trained with and kept the same animal for the entire series and it shows. Song Il-Kook sits a horse like he was born to the saddle and the many riding scenes in this series demonstrate a high level of horsemanship. The costuming and the various scenes at court or in battle are something to behold. This is the very highest quality entertainment that the viewer will find anywhere. The entire series is well worth buying and keeping to watch again and again.
