I'm not going to be particularly hard on this mini series, because I know it wasn't supposed to be a serious drama. It was just something fun and special for GOT7 fans. Overall, the story was cute, but kind of cliche. Girl meets boy, boy protects girl, someone has to die, etc etc. Don't attack me GOT7 fans, I'm just writing my honest opinion. Isn't that what reviews are supposed to be? Nevertheless, I think that the cliches of this drama were what made it cute. Plus the concept of Knights and Guardians was just too adorable. The ending was kind of rushed though, they didn't explain it well enough and I had to rewatch the end 3 times to understand what exactly had happened. It also seemed like they were trying to squish 3 different endings into one ending, as if they couldn't decide. The ending could've been better. Endings are always the hardest part to write. How does one wrap everything up but also leave the audience satisfied while also wanting more at the same time?

GOT7 is a musical group, so obviously their acting skills are not superb, but I think they did a great job despite the fact that they're singers. JB obviously has experience, but still.

The music was pretty much just all of GOT7's hits and a few others, so I already knew most of them. It was nice to have their songs playing in the background though, made it more enjoyable.

I don't really rewatch dramas/movies/etc, but since this was such a short and sweet series I'll probably watch it again if I have free time.

Although it seemed like I had nothing to say, I enjoyed the this mini-series. The only reason I gave it a 7.5 is because if I gave it a 8+ it would be like comparing it to big shot dramas out there like MLFTS, Healer, Kill Me Heal Me, Pinocchio, etc etc. Don't hate me. If you're bored and there's nothing to watch, this cute mini series will be perfect for you. :)

Honestly speaking, this drama isn't very good if you look at it technically and critically. The plot was a bit of a mess, and the story dragged on for the entire first half of the show. HOWEVER. I still really really enjoyed this drama. For some reason, I just kept watching without getting bored. As you watch more dramas you realize that your purpose for watching isn't just simply for writing a stone cold review, but for entertainment and relaxation. So, I'm going to look at it from both perspectives.

The plot of this drama was a bit...well let's just say it definitely wasn't the best. It didn't really have much depth, and a lot of things that were introduced the writers just never bothered delving into later on. Still, it was a single story kind of plot anyway. There were multiple obstacles that had to be overcome to reach the climax of the drama, but it was just that one event. Truthfully I think they could've done better with the fake musical. Even if it wasn't real, it should've at least made sense. They only showed like 3 minutes of it but I'm still thoroughly confused about 95% of it. It was still nice though, just a bit anti-climactic. I think the main thing that kept me watching is how utterly cheesy, cringeworthy (in a good way), and agitating this drama was. There were so so so SO many times when I found myself yelling at my phone or banging my head against the wall or punching my pillow because of how stupid or idiotic or frustrating the characters could sometimes be. Like just. WHY. Why would you do that. Do you need to go back to grade school. At any rate, you'll see what I mean. There were also warm fuzzy moments too, those extra cheesy lines or actions that make you what to scream and bite your lip and laugh maniacally? Yep, full of those. The love lines were pretty cute too, especially Joon Hee and Hee Joo, the most unlikely pair of 2011.

Oh dear the characters. Don't get me wrong, there was great acting in this drama. Yonghwa didn't disappoint, and Park Shin Hye was Park Shin Hye. It's just wow whichever writer wrote this drama needs to get strangled. Shin, the narcisstic prince, spends half the show pining after someone who obviously would never end up with him? Gyoo Won had pretty much no spine at all, and spent the entire time getting mad at Shin for no reason while he had to apologize every single time for something that wasn't even his fault. I don't think he's ever gotten genuinely mad at her once during their actual relationship. It's always been Gyoo Won making a ruckus over nothing. Not to mention, the both of them are so stupid and bipolar. I'd be spoiling if I gave reasons as to why they're stupid, but you'll see pretty soon once you start the drama. As for bipolar, well it's pretty much what it means. One moment Shin thinks this, the next he thinks this. One moment Gyoo Won says she hates Shin, 5 minutes later she smiles at him......OKAY. Are you planning to kill him with love? Cause it ain't gonna work. Lastly what you've all been waiting for, drumroll please......Park Shin Hye's kissing. Since I watched this drama after watching Pinocchio, I'll cut her some slack. She could actually kiss in that drama. Maybe she was tense and shy in her other dramas, but DANG that girl could not kiss. With a grand total of two (not) kisses in the drama, it was more like they were just brushing lips. I could stick a feather in between there seriously. And that deer in the headlights look for their first kiss? With both of their eyes open? Oh my god I had to look away. Seriously why would you open your eyes I do not understand. I mean her eyes were already big but when they were kissing (brushing lips) I could've sworn they were going to pop out. Just. Jesus. I mean I understand that Kdramas like to portray that innocent thing, but please director both of them are fully capable of a decent kiss, why are you torturing us like this seriously wtf.

The songs I really really really reaaaally loved. From You've Fallen For Me, to Because I Miss You, to Star, they're all perfect. I just love the OST for this. A definite A+ from me. Yonghwa's vocals are most definitely out of this world, so be prepared.

I will definitely re watch this many times before it gets too old for our time and turns into a grainy mess of pixels. It's a nice drama that really aggravates you and gets you involved, which I like. It's better than sitting there staring at a screen for 16+ hours with a blank look on your face hiding in your dark cramped closet right?

Overall, this drama was really refreshing. Although it wasn't the best ever, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Be prepared to yell and scream at the stupidity of all the characters, and cringe from cheesiness. If you'd like something that you can just watch lightly, without too much angsty stuff, give it a try. There will be crying though, but don't worry it'll pass. You'll most definitely LOVE the OST, so be prepared to sing along. ^.^ (And yes, I am watching it in 2015. You've gotta watch all the old ones so you can enjoy the new ones right?) Wow this was loooong, for the people who actually read through this, thank you and I hope you watch and enjoy the drama :)) Yonghwa, Shinhye fighting!

I actually happened upon this show on accident. Dramafever was glitching out on me, and instead of playing the next episode of Warrior Baek Dong Soo (great historical drama by the way) it played the first episode of Healer. Man, did I get sucked in. After finishing the first episode I had to force myself to finish WBDS before eagerly starting the second episode.

Now, before you get all judgey judgey with me and skip this review because I gave it all 10's, you should finish reading my review :) I don't just toss out 10's whenever a drama slightly moves me. Although I may not be that much of an experienced watcher, my personality in general is just very picky. Therefore, no I did not just randomly decide to be nice and give all 10's on a whim. This drama is truly amazing. KBS, you deserve a pat on the back. I think just by looking at the ranking of this drama, it's safe to say it's one of the best dramas of the past decade. Hell, it even broke the 9.0 mark. Kudos to all the writers, actors, PD, etc etc who made this amazing drama happen.

I actually found the story to be quite intriguing. It starts off as just a story about a night courier and people he's somehow connected to, but it branches out. You would think that the entire drama would just be about Healer and his love life with the female lead, but no. The supporting cast got just as good of a story. There was the main storyline, and then there was the story about the previous generation that was slowly unveiled throughout the series. The one fatal weakness of writers these days, is one way or another there are always parts that drag on. But not with this one. This drama always keeps you on your toes, and problems are never left open and unsolved. I find that a lot of writers tend to forget about the problems they created early on, and then towards the end of the drama they go "Oh right! Better write that one back in. Darn, should've used that for the middle episodes." Thus, the dragging middles and the rushed endings. So, if you're worried about it dragging, don't even fret my friend. KBS got yo back.

The cast was PER. FECT. EVERYONE was amazing, not even joking. A good writer can't create a great drama without great actors, and that's exactly what this drama had. First let's start off with Park Min Young. She's actually been getting a lot of hate lately because of how she looked in the drama, but let's just take a moment to let that sink in. How she looked. How she looked?! Yo, just because someone does not look like a Victoria's Secret model does not make them a bad actress. I don't see Behati Prinsloo getting Oscars. Why? Because she's not. an. actress. The character of Chae (Choi?) Young Shin is an anti-social girl who is not the least bit concerned about her appearance. Her only friends are her father and ex-convicts. You think she would be buying Naked palettes and Coach bags? I really hate how people automatically start judging actresses and actors based on their looks. Like hello? What's their job again? Oh right. TO ACT. If their job was to look pretty they would be models but guess what? They're actors. So stop judging Park Min Young just because her character wore loose clothing and applied minimal makeup. She wasn't even ugly in the drama. Honestly, I think she's a great actress and beautiful one at that. Now onto Ji Chang Wook (swoon). I might be just a liiiiittle biased but he really is an exceptional actor, one of my favorites. He's portrayed both hero and villain, and I think that really helped him improve his acting. I've never watched any of Yoo Ji Tae's dramas, but now I'm definitely a fan. I absolutely LOVE Park Mi Kyung. Like LOVE. By far the best ahjumma actress ever. She's played elegant and rich, poor and mute, and now hacker and essential hobo. I love her so much, she's just so dynamic. It also seems as though she's never embarrassed, because some of her outfits in this drama....WHEW. Ji Won To did a really great job too, I bet seizures are hard to fake haha.

Nothing really stood out to me music wise, but the reason I'm giving it a 10 is because the music was just so appropriate. Whoever did music selection and editing really has taste, because the music came right on time, and fit perfectly. It made you feel happy when needed, made you feel sad when needed, and most of all gave you so much feels you feel like your heart is going to explode.

Overall, watch watch watch watch watch make SURE to watch this drama. I don't care what lengths you have to go to, but this is a must. One cannot call oneself a dedicated watcher if you have not watched this. However, like many people have previously stated, don't let this be your first drama. As a first drama, it's exceptional and great and amazing...but other dramas can't compare. After finishing this, many dramas will fall short of your expectations. Therefore, you have to watch something that's inferior so you can both appreciate this drama and later dramas. I know, I know, my amazing review has you on your toes wanting to watch this drama, but endure it. If you're just starting out, I recommend My Lovely Girl, Monstar, and Heirs. Not that these dramas were necessarily bad, they just started out good and got slaughtered by the writers. Oh and one more word of advice, if you're just starting out don't watch a melodrama. There will be too much crying and angst for you to handle. Plus since you're just starting out you'll most likely be too confused to even be emotionally impacted. Happy watching!

Imagine a first snow. The pretty snowflakes are coming down, and it's nice and peaceful and quiet; the snow on the ground is all smooth and sparkly...then BAM out of nowhere some rabid dog comes in and starts thrashing around all over that smooth beautiful snow and leaves it in a cold, slushy, ugly, mess. Basically this drama in a nutshell.

The plot started out all right, Yoon Se Na was a girl with fire inside of her, but she had to suppress that fire in order to survive. Then Hyun Wook comes along and pushes her buttons because he's an arrogant little CEO who loves his dog more than most guys love their girlfriends. She explodes at him, he explodes at her, nuclear war between two very angry people. Then OOPS, wow! Turns out Se Na is his dead girlfriend's little sister he's been looking for for so long! Not that he did anything to make her hate him forever or anything...aaaaand we end the scene with Hyun Wook staring at Se Na across the street with tears in his eyes and Se Na glaring at him no doubt cussing him out in her head. I mean honestly it wasn't anything special, but I had expected it to get better from there. Little did I know, it completed flat-lined. And then from there complete plummetation. Which is not a word, but let's make it one. First came the Hyun Wook Tries to Win Se Na's Heart stage which lasted roughly about 2 episodes, then comes the Cute Fuzzy Mutual Happiness stage which lasted about 2 episodes. Finally, the stage you've all been waiting for: Hyun Wook and Se Na Pine For Each Other and Cause Unnecessary Drama and Pain. Essentially the rest of the drama until the last 3 episodes. Literally entire episodes were spent on them just pining for each other. Writers, is that REALLY necessary. We get it. Oh, boo hoo, they miss each other. Please get to the point.

I'm not sure if it's because Krystal's never gotten a role like this before, but WOW was Yoon Se Na blegh. I don't think of Krystal as a particularly bad actress, so I'll just peg this one as not so great writing. In the first three episodes, Se Na was an interesting character with a spine and passion for music. She was sad when she needed to be, and she was mad when she needed to be. Oh and most importantly, she had human emotions. Then as the drama progressed it's like she went on living throwing away an emotion a day. By the end of the drama she basically cried all the time and was overall just an emotionless soul sucking robot. Also, can we just take a moment to realize that even towards the end of the drama she kept on calling him AHJUSSI? Ahjussi. Ah. Ju. Ssi. That's what you would call someone twice, thrice, four times your age. Not the person you like. I mean, yes age difference but Oppa exists for a reason and so does Hyun Wook ssi. Another one of the many reasons why this drama was a bit uncomfortable to watch is the blatantly obvious taboo. She's his dead girlfriend's sister. Not only girlfriend, but also dead. Not just dead, but dead with the thought that he had been cheating on her. Their last moments together were spent fighting, and now he goes and falls in love with her sister. It's just not right. I know there's all those sayings like love prevails in the end, or love finds a way, but this is a bit...The one and only beacon of light that kept me watching was Shi Woo. He was straightforward and charismatic. He liked her and he was upfront about his feelings. He didn't beat around the bush, just went ahead and pursued her and that is what I like. Hyun Wook should take notes. Overall, Myungsoo did a great job with this character. It was so obvious, that Shi Woo and Se Na had two oceans more chemistry than Se Na and Hyun Wook, yet Se Na STILL ended up with Hyun Wook. Why is the drama cliché to always have the two main leads end up together? It should have been obvious to the writers that Shi WooxSe Na had more chemistry, yet they still stuck to the classic ending? Speaking of the ending, I can't even review it because I don't know what the hell happened. It just. Boom. End Scene. Cut off abruptly, no explanation. Roll the credits. Byethanksforwatching. I just. No.

There was nothing particularly special about the music really. The only song I really wanted was the song Shi Woo sang for Se Na as a guide, but I couldn't find that anywhere. :(

If I were to rewatch this, it would be for the cute moments between Se Na and Shi Woo. This drama overall was just a bust on SBS's part. I find that SBS can either come out with REEEEALLY great dramas like City Hunter, My Love From The Star, and Pinocchio, or REEEALLY bad dramas that had good potential like the Heirs or My Lovely Girl. I wouldn't recommend it for experienced watchers, but if you're just starting out, try this one to kind of test your palette. It'll make it easier to compare to other dramas in terms of how good of a drama it actually is.

Well would you look at that, the second drama this year to surpass the 9.0 mark. Truth be told, I hadn't actually planned on writing a review, because everyone else's reviews basically summed up everything I had to say, but I mean why not add in my two cents right?

The story was very intriguing for me. A third generation chaebol with 7 different personalities (aka Dissociative Identity Disorder) falls in love with the psychologist treating him. Honestly, I think it's amazing what the body can do as a result of a defense mechanism. DID itself is something amazing. Of course, people with this disorder suffer greatly and it definitely isn't fun or great or amazing for them, but if you really think about it, it's unbelievable. Completely different personalities living in one body? And this is real? Similar disorders could be schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, but DID is by far the most extreme. Okay, now that we've gotten past my fascination. At first, I was tentative about starting this. She falls in love with a guy with DID? How is that going to work, is she going to shun all the other personalities and only give affection to one? I had many worries about the plot in the beginning, especially with Shin Se Gi coming out right off the bat. However, those worries quickly evaporated as the story continued. The writers wove the most creative storyline, managing to cover everything. It's as if they could hear all my worries. "Oh, you're worried about this? Well here you go now it works and it makes sense." "Oh, what about this you say? We got that covered too."Claps for you.

The cast was hands down amazing. I don't even know what to say about Ji Sung...is he some angel sent down from heaven? By far the best actor I've seen. (solely based on opinion and everything I have watched in my short lifetime so far...don't kill me (heal me HAHAHA IM FUNNY) The fact that he managed to play all the different personalities so convincingly, with different ways of speech and different gazes....Wow. Just W.O.W. Hwang Jung Eum didn't disappoint either, her specialties are crying scenes honestly, which is good because crying is often the hardest challenge actors/actresses have to face haha. Nobody likes a hanging tear that refuses to fall out. Oh Ri Jin was slightly annoying at times with her screaming and screeching and such, but I guess you just have to accept that that's how the writers wrote the character out to be.

There were only a couple songs that stood out to me, but the music was very fitting so it's getting a high rate. But just, Auditory Hallucinations UGH that song kills (heals) me. I'm so funny I know. I should go on a gag show. Although y'all would probably throw tomatoes and other various fruits and vegetables at me. ANYWAY. I love it so much and I am beyond mad that I can't find it anywhere at the moment. But it's okay, I can wait. A little bit.

Rewatch is a definite yes for me, even though I almost never rewatch. This drama was just that good.

Overall, this drama is really setting the standards high for 2015, and I highly anticipate what's to come. I must say that as great as it is, it's still a close second to Healer. Healer is just pure amazingness, and I'm waiting for the drama that can come along and knock it off the throne. Once again, all of this is based merely on opinion and preference, so don't kill me (heal me....Ok ok I'm done for real with that it's already old yes yes I know you saw it coming...But you gotta admit it was a little funny....no? ok...) Ok I'm done annoying you with my terrible humor. I hope this review helped you, and I encourage you to watch this beautiful drama. While it was at times very tragically sad and melodrama-like, there were also many times where I laughed until I cried. Happy watching!

Honestly, the only reason why this drama dragged a bit was because the concept was waaaay too simple. A guy was a coward and never confessed to his first love and now she's getting married to another man, so he travels back in time and tries to change things. In my opinion, this would've been great for a mini-series, but not a drama. Basically, the writers had 16 episodes on their hands with one simple storyline, so they had to keep stretching and stretching and repeating and repeating until finally, whew, the ending yay. There were many moments in this drama when it was like he purposely CHOSE the harder path for himself. It seemed that no matter what he did, he never. got. the girl. Why? Because if he did, what the hell were the writers gonna do for the rest of the show? Write 5 hours worth of them cuddling and being all romantic? Still, I found myself rooting for Baek Ho all the same. There were many times where I have wanted to slap him for being an idiot, or yell at him for being an idiot, or beat him up because HE WAS AN IDIOT. It's like, does he not remember what he went through to get to where he was? He just goes and throws it away like it's nothing? Oookay. There was this one time that I legit spit out my water mid-drink and started yelling at the screen upon hearing a facepalm worthy thing happening. Just prepare yourself.

The actors were definitely not the problem in this drama. Everyone was great. Yoo Seung Ho never disappoints (as always) and Park Eun Bin matched him pretty well. I don't know if it's because they were childhood friends (ok let's be real here it's because they were childhood friends) but they had heaps of chemistry. I didn't like Yi Seul (portrayed by Park Eun Bin) towards the end though. It was pretty obvious in the beginning that she was someone with a spine; a girl who spoke her thoughts and definitely wasn't shy. However, towards the end its like someone reached inside and completely crushed it. She was told time and time again "I like you", hints were dropped, actions were done. And yet. Your crush for 2 decades confesses to you and you say "Nice joke"?! Wow. Anyway, it's all good though, because she grew her spine back pretty quickly. Overall, everyone was amazing, even the small supporting roles.

If you read my other reviews, you'll see that music almost never stands out to me in dramas unless its from a historical drama. I don't know, I'm just like that haha. For me, I either like really kpop-y songs or deep emotional songs. There is no in between ;)

I also don't tend to rewatch dramas, simply because there are always scenes in dramas that I don't like but watch anyway because it's my first time and I need to know everything, but the second time around I just skip. What's the point of watching if you're just gonna skip everything, right? But who knows, maybe one day when I've forgotten about it I'll come back.

Overall, this wasn't a bad drama, and the actors certainly weren't bad either. The concept was just too simple. There were too many times where I was like if only you had done THIS, or if only you had listened to her, or if only you didn't misunderstand so easily. But, give it a watch. I find it kind of fun when dramas aggravate you, and this one definitely will.

Let me just start off by saying this: If you cannot stomach horror, watch the first episode with all the lights on or better yet outside in the nice beautiful weather with your 2 cats and 3 dogs. It's not really that it's particularly scary, but I can get sensitive to this kind of stuff (slowly training myself haha) and so I got scared reeeaally easily. I'm actually kind of sad they didn't use more of the scary graphics as the drama progressed.

At any rate, I enjoyed the plot of this drama, particularly the quite literal "she can't live without him" factor. I particularly liked the "Joo Joong Won, Joo Joong Two, Joo Joong Three" thing. Haha. Hilarious. The only complaint I have about the storyline is the last 2 episodes. Episode 16 was, what I assume to be, a filler episode. Not much really happened during that episode so the entire time I just found myself staring at the screen spacing out. If they were gonna make the second to last episode a snoozefest they should have just gone with the classic 16. No need to stretch it out to 17. Episode 17 on the other hand, was honestly so rushed. Common sense says to just stretch the ending between 16 and 17 instead of cramming everything into 17 and leaving 16 with 3 grains of rice. But no, instead they do a time skip and all the characters have automatically resolved their conflicts and everyone lives happily ever after. We see absolutely nothing about what changed over that 1 year. It's just "oh yeah fairy tale land yay! We'll just skip to the end and you can make up your mind on how everything got to this point."

The acting in this drama was overall pretty good. Gong Hyo-jin is really an amazing actress and she deserves more credit honestly. People tend to think that if an actress' character is pretty and elegant, she's automatically a great actress. That is far from the truth. A great actress has to be able to portray any character and be able to convince the audience. The fact that Hyo-jin was able to portray Tae Gong-shil so accurately and so wholeheartedly is amazing. And of course, So Ji-sub and his "get lost" haha. The one thing that I am cringing about is L. Myungsoo, Myungsoo, Myungsoo. I don't know if it's because it's his first time portraying this kind of character, but oh lordy his acting killed me. I love him, but please no. He was superb in Shut Up Flower Boy Band, but this role just did not suit him at all.

The music was pretty good, Hyorin did a great job as usual, but nothing really stood out to me. It was the typical OST, with some sad songs, some happy songs, etc. etc. But nothing really stuck. I think the only thing that really stood out was Hyorin's "Crazy", but that was only because they played that song every dang time Gong-shil and Joong-won appeared on screen together.

I would probably only rewatch this drama for the comic relief, because the end just really drags out. It's something I would most likely watch if I had nothing else to watch, but definitely not something I would watch over and over and over again.

Overall, this drama was the perfect mixture of everything. There were bittersweet moments, romantic moments, funny moments, cringeworthy moments, and of course the jumpscares. If you want a drama that you can freely watch, maybe just an episode or 2 a day without having to obsess over it, this is the one for you.

Ah, where to start with this review.. Overall this drama was by far the best historical drama I've watched. It has the perfect combination of everything. Story, characters, music, comedy, heartache. During this drama I've cried, I've laughed, I've laughed and cried at the same time, and I've even punched the screen out of frustration. I mean, there's really no other way to describe this drama it was beautifully tragic.

The story of this drama was very well developed and everything was spaced out very evenly. You would think that because this drama is so long with 29 episodes that the story would drag out, but no. Never once was I bored, and as soon as one storyline ended a transition was carried out smoothly and the next storyline took off without a hitch. The great thing about this drama is that each character gets his/her own little story. Every one of them have depth, which is why the entire series is so heart-wrenching. If you're wary of watching this because of the episode count, don't worry its entirely worth it. The first couple of episodes may be slow because it's a backstory, but I promise you'll get hooked as soon as the actual story starts.

Oh, dear. The characters. I'm warning you, this is going to be a reaally long paragraph. First of all, let me start off with Yeo Woon. Freaking Yeo Woon. Woon is just so....Agh seriously. Woon is by far the most pitiful character I've ever come across. His fate was to walk a lonely path, and he walked on the path alone until the end. He's someone who's essentially a prodigy. He has amazing martial arts skills, and he has friends and people he can rely on. But he was raised to be an assassin. He has to betray his friends. He likes someone but her heart is taken by his best friend. And yet still he walked that path alone. To be an assassin is to bear someone else's pain. Woon bears so much pain by himself, but in the end no one was there to help him carry his burden. In the end he was the most selfless person out of all of them, but no one knew that except for us pitiful viewers. His character is just so so so sad. He never let himself have happiness. Always blinded by that stupid fate of his. I cry for him, but he's not even real. That's just how pitiful he is. Anyone that watches this will not only pity him, but also love him too. He's supposed to be a bad guy, but we all love him anyway. He just has this cool aura of badass. Not to mention he's played by Yoo. Seung. Ho. Like dayum boi he can really pull off long hair, I'm sure gonna miss it. Then again, both the child actor and the adult actor can pull off Woon's swaggy long hair. I would get into the other characters, but then I would be writing a novel. But seriously, if you're still hesitant, watch the drama for Yeo Woon. You definitely will not regret it. And then of course, are the first generation characters. Honestly Ga-ok, Gwang-taek, and Chun are pretty much Dong-soo, Ji-sun, and Woon. They had a heart breaking story, and I really appreciated the fact that their storyline was actually physically in the drama. They're not just random characters who are just THERE. They have their own story, their own flash backs, and their own plot twists. I also really liked most of the female roles in this drama. They were all independent and stood up for themselves. Sure, they had damsel in distress moments but even if they needed to be rescued they were brave despite the circumstances. I love a good strong female role, so this was very satisfying. The only complaint I have about this is Ji Sun. While I appreciate the fact that she can shoot a bow well and that she's a strong independent woman, she's just so bland. Her face is always the same, sometimes I even think that maybe the episode had stopped playing or something. Her voice also never changes. It's the same with everyone she talks to. No emotion put into it, no nothing. Not to mention she had no chemistry with Ji Chang Wook whatsoever. But yeah, that's all. Yeo Woon. Did I mention Yeo Woon?

I really enjoyed the music. They were paired perfectly with scenes, and thanks to the music during some sad scenes I would burst out sobbing, it was just so sad. During happy scenes, I would laugh and smile along with the characters. And the fight scenes. Oh, the fight scenes. Literally they looked so genuinely epic it made me want to learn martial arts. Except of course, in modern day swords are completely useless against guns. Still, swords may be useless, but there's a reason they call it martial ARTS. Swordsmanship really is an art. It's beautiful, graceful, and deadly. Getting off topic here, but yes I will definitely be downloading some songs. (*cough* Wild by Park Eun Tae *cough*)

Overall, this drama was a beautiful drama. Tragic, but beautiful. I really hated the ending though, so much that I wanted to cry. It's not so much that the ending was a bad one, it was just one that I personally did not like because it was so heartbreaking. I understand though, that it was needed. I got closure. But I sobbed my heart out in that last episode. For a cast of characters that aren't even real. Ha. But that's just what dramas do to us, huh? Anyway, please please watch this drama. I swear you won't regret it. Yeo Woonnie, Fighting!

Personally, I loved this drama. It's definitely not the best out there, and I acknowledge that there are flaws, but I absolutely loved it 100%. The only reason I didn't give it full marks is because it's definitely lacking and I'm trying to look at it from a technical point of view.

In my opinion, the writers did a good job with this one. I'm usually hesitant to watch historical dramas because they often have a lot of episodes which results in the story dragging oooon and oooon and oooooooooon. However, since this one only had 12 I guess the writers felt rushed in a sense and squeezed everything in, which was great. Transitions between arcs were smooth, I was never bored, and the story had a nice mix of everything. It's pretty simple actually. A little country boy goes to Hanyang, the country's capital, and meets three other people; Heo Seung Po (The Prince's Royal Guard, Right Side) Ahn Min Seo (The Prince's Royal Guard, Left Side) and The Crown Prince himself. They call themselves the Three Musketeers, and go around wreaking havoc but trying to save the country at the same time. I found it interesting that they converted a book written in the mid-1800's into a Korean historical drama. Who would've thought? If you're worried about a dragging story or a boring plot, I can assure you there is nothing of the sort. As a matter of fact, if you're a somewhat dedicated watcher I can guarantee that you"ll finish this within 3 or 4 days.

I really liked the cast, despite the fact that some characters did bother me a whole lot. In the beginning both Dal Hyang and the Crown Prince were a bit too proud for my liking, however both of them took each other down a peg which worked out pretty well. I'm a bit sad that the writers didn't delve more into the Prince's guards, because I absolutely loved them. If it weren't for Heo Seung Po this drama would've been a melodrama. As for Ahn Min Seo, I hate to admit it but he was kind of just there. HSP had at least a bit of a story, but AMS didn't get much of a story. Or a personality. I mean I get it, he's the classy one, the one who's the most controlled out of all of them. Still, there's no depth for him. I suppose since the drama was so short they had to cut down on the character development for AMS and HSP, but I wish they got more screen time. It's kind of sad, I really like Jung Hae In, haha. The two female leads did a spectacular job too, and Yoo In Young (plus her beauty) never disappoints.

There was nothing really special about the music, but I did notice that in the beginning they historical-ified some kpop songs and made it sound like regular sageuk music. It was kind of interesting to hear HyunA's Red in historical drama version, but nevertheless I liked it.

I don't usually rewatch dramas just because I'm one of those people who don't watch if they already know what's going to happen, but since it's so short and I loved it so much, I'll probably rewatch.

I'm sorry for such a long review, but I guess I just like to write, haha. This drama overall was a definite yes in spite of its flaws, and I'm hoping I can find yet another one that I will love just as much, perhaps even more. I'm really sad to hear that they won't be doing a season 2 & 3, I guess it wasn't very popular in Korea? Maybe budget cuts? Who knows. Yet another good drama has been finished, and I hope you can watch and share my love for this drama too. Happy watching!
