  1. I see this synopsis in a lot of places. A better one would explain that he’s not running away from marriage but disguising himself as a woman to track down the boss of the female assassins that were sent to kill him to find out why

  2. I highly recommend this drama!!! no dull moments! ???

    only 1 episode for this week???
    I’m excited for the next episode! ???

  3. Just be aware episode 7 (13 and 14) are the wrong way around, not sure if was broadcast like that. Makes a lot more sense if you watch it in order- start watching at 35:51 then go back to the beginning for the second half 🙂

  4. In my nonprofessional, humble opinion, I categorize this drama as an epic. As a usual viewer, I’m holding my breath for the ending. A comment has already been given that Nokdu will not become the next king – sooo I’m assuming history will bear out that the evil, evil prince, whatever he is, will ascend the throne. Writers, directors, the outcome aside, you must be ecstatic that the 2 leads have made your story come alive. They must be awarded to the max!!
