Hey, I have an idea. Let's all watch The King Loves. J/K
No no please, that was awful . I sort of like The Rebel Thief Who Stole The Water Margin, sorry People . I was expecting the worst, as you can imagine history is tossed in the closet , but if you like the "rebellion against a cruel tyrant ", as perpetrated by righteous thieves, than this delivers. Despite a slow start, it does have good cinematography, good soundtrack, cliff jumping, no gladiator stuff, Yonsan who likes his herbal cures a wee bit much,a great Jang Nok Su, some scenes that stretch credibility . It also veers from lighthearted to very dark.
Its worth a watch, though its really down to the last ten episodes including a great climatic battle that never actually happened . Its worth watching and highly entertaining . Probably closer to the Hong Gil Dong late 90's drama, than the recent version in the OO's .
I liked King Geunchogo, i thought it was decent and more in the realm of traditional sageuks, as opposed to the recent ventures.True its not great, but its better than anything on now .
