The thing that I found very moving and emotional was in the previous episode (#51) when Heuk Sedol took DJY to the village. The images of that lonely, distraught soldier pulling his injured friend for hundreds of miles over tough terrain, just hoping that he might be able to save his life...for me that may have been the most emotional moment of the series so far. I wish they had spent more time on it. They could have written a whole episode about the journey and it would have been great.
I agree with you all the way, ajk. Another scene (with Sudol) that I thought was really great, was before that scene. After DJY was "killed" by Kaigu, Sudol just slung DJY over his shoulder and ran like mad! My family, already on the edge of their seats, started whooping and cheering when that happened .
I think the character of Sudol has come a long way.

By the way, Truth thanks for the tip on the extra added episodes. Good to know that now and not get surprised by it later. Much appreciated.
I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I assumed that they had a plan for how the series would go and that they set it all up based on a certain number of episodes. If they just decided all of a sudden to add so many more, what are they going to put in them? That's a heck of a lot of extra material to write. Well, let's hope they have some good stories planned and ready to go. Still waiting for that Li-Kaigu-might-be-a-prince thing to come back; maybe that will be part of it.
I thought Li Kaigu was the child of a general who fought beside DJY's father. I don't remember anything about him being in the royal family. (Finally I'm getting his name right-I kept saying Lt. Kaigu, from reading too fast?)
