Review:
I myself have not yet finished watching this drama, but I just wanted to let people know that this is out there. I am currently working with With S2 to help translate and time English subtitles for the Korean release. Hopefully more people will start to watch this.

Because this drama was a cooperative project between the Chinese and Korean cast, the way the action sequences and plotline are created follow a very Chinese/Wu Xia look. This is very different from most ancient Korean dramas so if you are unfamiliar with this genre then you will definitely want to check this out. I will score this when I finish watching it myself.

Update:
Finally, finished BiChunMoo subbing project. Thanks so much to With s2 for their support and man power. Love Emily. 🙂

I can now say that both versions have their pros and cons. The Korean version cuts out a lot of the deeper background story so this makes the Chinese version have more depth, but I really do think that the 14 episodes really cover a good deal so you aren’t missing too much. I can’t say I enjoyed this series immensely because it gets a little draggy around the middle. I did like the first and ending parts where Sul Ri gets some action on her own.

JJM and PJY were a nice casting by the person who played Jun Kwang really felt like a miscast. Sung was and PSH were a nice cast but something just seemed missing from the whole project. I felt that Shu Jun’s attitude the whole drama was a bit over done and Yu Jin was a bit unbelievable as a character. I enjoyed the movie better than I enjoyed the drama but PJY is really a beautiful character.

Rating:
3.8/5.0
