Set in the fictional land of Arthdal during ancient times. Eun-Sum (Song Joong-Ki) was born with fate to bring disaster to Arthdal. Due to his mother’s struggles to save him, he goes through hardships and grows up. He appears again in Arthdal. Ta-Gon (Jang Dong-Gun) is a war hero of Arthdal. He has paved the way for Arthdal to become a prosperous city nation and he is the most powerful person in Arthdal. He dreams of becoming the first king of Arthdal. Tan-Ya (Kim Ji-Won) was born with the same fate as Eun-Sum. She is the successor of the Wahan Tribe. Going through hardships, she realized her mission. She lives under the highest honor and her ambition is to become a politician.
I recommend this drama to anyone who loves historical fantasies. The CGI, the costumes and even the makeup or something new to be seen. The concept of the story is unique and settings are quite appealing not to be admired. In short, the cinematography is first-rate.
Though some people find it hard to like this drama, I truly understand them. At first, it was challenging to follow the plot. Since they are establishing different storylines of the tribes and its beliefs, it is conventional to be confusing, but not until the moment you will grasp every detail, you will finally realize the beauty of this show. Honestly, I did all the backward just to understand more of what was going on those episodes. And oh, I also find it hard to remember the character names.
Nevertheless, it’s a good watch and I absolutely enjoyed it. The cast is wonderfully fitted with their roles and acting is exactly in its place. The rest of the story and highlights are still in progress, we have two parts coming for the next two months and I just can’t wait for it.
