A masterpiece
14 March 2011 | by vivianadevaSee all my reviews

I have just discovered this TV show and I just couldn't stop watching it till the end. It is a true epic masterpiece that has you completely fascinated. It has everything one may need in watching this kind of series: both funny and sad moments,amazing fighting scenes, great actors, amazing script, mythology, friendship and true love. And the soundtrack is also exceptional. I just wished that I could see more of Damdeok and Sujini in the last part of the series, and I think this is one of the rare times I cried at the end and also every other time I re watched the episodes. Because the truth is that this is one of those shows that you can watch over and over again, never get tired of it and still watch it every time like it is your first time. Absolutely amazing masterpiece. It is worth watching again and again and again and again.
