Time Consuming, but well Worth IT !!
25 January 2015 | by sayef20See all my reviews

OK, so I am American. This was the first K-Drama I watched. I absolutely loved it. Everything about it from the plot, to the acting, to the scenery. Amazing. This show meshes love into a political account and makes it just amazing.Each character has their own thing you like about them. It even made me cry, like I never cry. The soundtrack is also amazing LOL. You find yourself taking sides in each situation and even just falling in love with the masterpiece of the plot. This does follow history some what. But yea 11/10 Every episode makes you want more and more. Absolutely amazing. I will definitely re-watch in like 5 years. LOL I wish there was more
