This drama is filled with romance, history, politics, action and comedy. It has an original flavor that surely be enjoyed. It’s a pretty epic with good acting and loveable characters.

I love Lee Jae Ha ( Lee Seung Ki) but I was captivated of Eun Kyu Tae (Eun Shi-kyung) character. He was loyal and romantic and I cried a lot more from his scenes.

I’m so glad that I watched it. It is one of my favorites!

You must see it.


Jae Ha: “Every single morning I will give you a kiss as revenge. Every single day, I will follow you like a stalker and buy you everything you want. I am never going to cheat on you. You’ll be the only one in my eyes. From now on, I’ll never let you cry even one tear. I’m going to make you the happiest queen in the world. Until the day I die to the point of disgust, I’m only going to love you as revenge. Can you handle it, your highness? I’m officially proposing to you right now.”

Hang Ah: “We argue a lot recently. It was like that from the very beginning. He said I wasn’t a woman to him from the very first sight. He said that unexpectedly. After I heard it, I was so upset; I treated him roughly and fought against him. Now that I think about it, that’s when I began to love him.”


Eun Shi-kyung. “What is there to like about a powerless king? There was a time I was shaken – when you said you’d resign, when you said you couldn’t send me here. But that was all. You didn’t blame anyone else or lie down in defeat. When it was a 99% improbable reality, you plotted and schemed to find that remaining one percent. I didn’t serve you because you were the king. I served you because even in the pit of despair, you did not give up.“


Eun Shi-kyung. “Do you remember when we looked at the shooting star together? That time… I wasn’t looking at the shooting star. Because you were shining more brightly than the stars.“

Verdict: 10/10
