Our Temp Opinion

Heck ! I am quite reluctant to watch history based drama, it’s kinda boring for me. If it included fantasy, well call me in, but transparent story like this didn’t even intrigued me. I kinda have the knowledge about the story of Hong Gil Dong from my email friend who is Korean, so when the story is put in an extensive and slow paced like this make me sleepy. According to my friend, the story is good and the extended part embellishment toward the narrative is quite impactful, if you love saeguk themed drama – This one is for you.
