For Drama Fans
11 December 2018 | by creation_jonesSee all my reviews

This is definitely a drama, but not overly dramatic to the point of being ridiculous. I love the unique story line that birthed many complex relationships. The visuals fit the title of warrior poets, as the main characters were all both lovely and strong. To accompany that, the scenes provided laughter, tension, suspense and romance that we expect from a drama, but with added twists. The show was definitely a crescendo, so please don't stop with the first episode.

9/10 because this is not a show heavily reliant on immaculate costuming and high budget world-making. It is just a great story with great characters and beautiful actors.
