This was one of the best Korean dramas I've seen. The children actors were mostly excellent matches with the adult versions, where there are actual similarities in appearances. The intrigues of the plot were well thought out. It was a tearjerker, but excellent comic relief was enjoyably provided by the king enunch ... especially in the last episode.

The drama reads like a romance novel, given its origins. It's almost always disappointing to see the children grow up because the child actors and actresses do such a great job portraying innocent love (and look better than the grown-up counterparts in some cases). Overall, a mostly romantic, and sometimes sappy, story with not a whole lot of political intrigue and guys crying a lot.
