Subtitles for English! Starts out kind of hokey, stick with it tho, ends kind of hokey .. but wow the over all story is fantastic lots of ups and downs and cliffhangers. This was up there with jewel in the palace. Don't let the first few eps fool you.. how a low borne girl gets her entry in the annals (well documented history) of the Josun dynasty. Min from jewel in the palace is the king in here. I think these series are so popular that public demand refuses to allow the original endings.. so they tack on episodes after the main theme has run it's course. Regardless i was so attached to the story and characters i didn't mind the additions. If you liked jewel in the palace this is one to watch too.. or if you liked this one jewel in the palace (54 1 hour eps) is one to watch. ahh now the withdrawal symptoms of exiting a fantastic 60 hour movie after you have fallen in love with all the cast.. great drama! worth watching! :) I give this 12 out of 10 stars!
