The First Part of the TV-drama

Like it ? Then Watch it here :

A/N: I really into the ancient Asian culture, and this is one of my most favourite k-drama I like the most. To be honest I just started to watch this drama because DBSK was singing to the theme song. But after watched a MV from the drama at youtube, then I started to search after the drama. The storyline is unique and interesting and the scenes is brilliant done which make it more realistic. I have totally watch this 3 times and never thought it was boring after knowing the storyline. It always succeed bring out new feelings and thoughts everytime I watched it. I usually get tired of a drama if I have watch it twice, but this never got me there.
In the begin it might not be catchy but if you watch the whole episode one, you will get more curious about the storyline.
