Bit too long
4 October 2019 | by elissa-65229See all my reviews

For some reason, I found this drama a bit long winded and hard going. I loved Six Flying Dragons, which in a way precedes this story, being about Sambong and the Secret Roots (or Hidden Roots in that drama), which is central to this story. Great cast, some overacting at times, I felt. The latter episodes were by far the best and very moving at times. If the overall pace had been a bit faster, I probably would have enjoyed this more. Pleased I watched it.
