Oh! Its epic! The show that made so many Korean stars! The music! The many storylines. I'd say it was 100 Years of Solitude..Korean style!
You've got the action. The corrupt government. The people who want to be free. Its during a time when guns were first coming to the scene. Most were used to swordplay and hand and foot battles (which might last for hours!) If you want to feel the Korean history..this is the one that will take you there.
