This remake after countless remakes of the popular Romance of the 3 Kingdoms novel certainly hit all the right notes. Although it may not have the depth of its predecessors, it makes up for it by a good script, directing, artistry and production quality. The 3 Kingdoms story can be very daunting in terms of its sheer number of characters and events. So for those who're already staunch Kingdom buffs, this series may disappoint as the scriptwriters took a lot of liberties on the original storyline. But for those who're just starting their journey into the chaotic world of the 3 Kingdoms, this series is a gentle and enjoyable introduction into possibly one of the greatest Asian historical novels of all time and a glimpse into the Asian cultural diaspora.
