One thing i really hate about this show is the overuse of flashbacks . Every episode seems to start with the last 10 mins of the episode prior ,but that i can live with Ep 11 kicked off with a 20 min recap of the story so far . Ep12 and 13 were pretty much all flashbacks ,i mean if you miss an episode dont worry the KBS writers will make sure you are filled in over and over again . For someone who has watched every episode its frustrating . Going back to the preview show would it not have made sense to say this drama is about the early life of Crown Prince Mu Hyool who became the Third King Of Goguryeo instead of claiming its about the Tragic Life of Dae Musin the Third king which it clearly is not . This man had a very interesting but short tragic life ,he expanded the Goguyeo Borders and fought several big wars with Han China very much like Grand Pops . Going back to Jumong even MBC after some 60 episodes pulled the plug on the early adventures of Chumo and bought things up to speed . So we have a character with this great but short life ,with so much material that could be used we seem stuck in these endless flashbacks .
Well thats my tirade and i do love the show but just had to vent vent about those darn flashbacks .
