Doesn't Cao Cao have that famous saying?
He said, "I'd rather betray the world than let the world betray me."
I have a saying too.
"I'd rather the world betray me, but I won't betray the world."

I have read "the romance of the three kingdoms" and there are definitely some minor differences, but most of them are understandable sacrifices in order to make the show more entertaining. Most of this show stays very true to the novel. If you have no idea about the story or just a general understanding i guarantee that this show will be enjoyable to you. however, if you are a three kingdoms historian you might be disappointed with how some of the characters are portrayed. For instance Liu Bei's character seems a bit shallow and boring compared to what i imagined, and Lu Bu is much less intimidating. but other than some minor problems with character portrayal it is a superb series worthy of being watched.
I believe a certain fan-sub group, that specializes in Wuxia dramas, is currently adding English subs to the series. Buy the DVD and check out the sub and I ensure you'll enjoy this masterpiece.
