My thought, I couldn't recognize Lee Seung Ki in the first few episodes, but he definitely grew up alot since Shinning Inheritance, he is so tanned in The King 2 Heart lol and i think his smile is kinda different....

Ha Ji Won did pretty well too. Eventho her character is somewhat similar to secret garden (ie violence character), but it definitely does not have Gil Ra Im shadow. Kim Yong Ah has a stronger character than Gil Ra Im.


I dont understand why does the scriptwriter has to kill Eun Shi Kyung tho. I mean, Kim Yong Ah can survive from a gunshot (and they are police, they should have better skill than Kim Bong Goo right? unless u say the police cant kill her, but if that's the case, he shouldnt even shoot her, she is a royal family member) why cant Eun Shi Kyung? Is Kim Bong Goo a genius shooter? LOL I like Eun Shi Kyung ):


It's kinda depressing that I understand the Chinese and American lines but have to read subtitle for Korean dialogs. It seems that they didnt dub their English/Mandarin dialogs. The way Ha Ji Won speaks Mandarin was so funny!

Both Lee Seung Ki and Kang Han Byul act well. The story is a good one, quite intense.

I just finished this drama and loved it. I don't generally like political dramas but this was so much more. This was also my first Lee Seung Gi drama and I can understand why people love him now. The beginning was kind of slow but it was necessary for character development. It was also interesting to see so much English spoken in the drama. LSG speaks French very well.

Enjoyed the show in the beginning. After a while, it was kind of draggy

I thought the drama was okay overall. I agree that it did feel like it dragged later in the drama. I really enjoyed the storyline between Eun Shi Kyung and Lee Jae Shin though!
