Seo Hwi is a warrior. His father Seo Geom is a famous commander. Seo Hwi does not compromise when it comes to injustice. His life devolves into a hellish existence, but he still holds a smile. Nam Sun Ho is smart and a talented figure. Because his mother was born into the lowest class, Nam Sun Ho is looked down upon by other people. He wants to pass the military service examination. Due to a corruption scandal involving his father, Nam Sun Ho loses his dream. Making things worse, he comes into conflict with Seo Hwi over a misunderstanding.
I don't typically write many reviews on shows but I feel like going out and bellowing from the rooftops about this show. Honestly, it's that good. This might be the greatest story about friendship that I have ever seen. The bond between the characters feels so real. Epic battle scenes which had me on the edge of my seat. Betrayals which left me with more salt in my mouth than the Red Wedding (truly).
I don't want to ramble on too much but I have to give massive credit to the cast. The actors and actresses were exceptional. A lot of historical shows like this can often fail with overacting or poor dialogue but this was executed perfectly.
The only negative thing I can say is that it's subtitled and some people don't like that. I have friends who only watch dubbed shows who won't give this a chance but please, if you're one of those people please give this show a shot. You won't be disappointed.
