    Default Longest-running Korean TV series

    I used to think Jewel in the Palace was longest with 70 eps, but now I heard of Jumong which is at 81 episodes and each episode is 65 mins long !!!

    Is Jumong the longest-running epic with a complete story beginning to end?

    What's the longest Korean TV series you've seen (or heard about)??

    Jumong was so long? i thought it is around 40 eps.

    If I were correct, then Emperor of the Sea is the longest series I have watched to date = 50 eps.

    Yeah, Jumong is 81 eps where each ep is over an hour. Emperor of the Sea is one of the longest series I have as well.

    Wow thanks for the list. Have you watched any of those 100+ episode series? I wonder if they have a cohesive story with beginning and end and if the episodes are 45 mins or over an hour each.

    I tried watching Likeable or Not, but it seems like a daily soap or tv drama to me.And possibly the episodes were shorter, lasting only about a half hour? Not sure.

    Yeah I'm not interested in the daily soaps. I like the really long series that plays out like a novel with a well developed plot with a beginning, middle and end like Emperor of the Sea (and possibly Jumong)
