lupita some people talk like they are talking to those who are saying the king is weak. try to be the king and live inside that place whenre every one is enemy lets see what you will learn and do goshh some ppl

Vanessa I hate the King!!! As portrayed here anyway. He is soooo weak! Goodness! Was there no one to advise this man? Maybe I am so used to the Chinese historical dramas where the court is set up differently. The emperors would not have hesitated to cut off any body's head for treason. When people were caught, they took the sword to their own neck. The writer has done a good job with the script, especially if part of the goals was to make the viewer annoyed, sad, hopeful, laugh, angry, etc., etc. Oh well, I am only 30 episodes in and can't stop watching now. I will have to continue to hate the King, thing Dong Yi is a naive little fool and see how it plays out. But, if that doggone second queen isn't killed, I will really be mad!

dagmawi tegegn I love the drama so much... Everything was there...I could laugh; cry; get angry!! Its more like a real life to me! Above all the love story between the king and dong yi it so incredible that I could not sense anything fake! Love dong yi she compose herself not over reacted every thing about her is for us to learn! All in all every one did a great job in this drama! I have watched it like 7times now and still can't get enough of it and it will forever be in my collection! from ETHIOPIA

shaikha i hate dong yi i watched bc of lady jang charachter and whats make me love it more is my most excallent actress lee so yeon,for dong yi some dodn't know that even her name is not dong yi and all the story about her from father daying to etc..... is fake her story is like korean drama called jewel in the palace ,besides i think queen hui bin is not evil , the only thing told as i read in wiki that they found amagic spell somthing like that for queen inhyun and guess who found it its dong yi or consert choi as in wiki ,i think she but the for queen inhyun pretending to be nice but she want to queen also killing queen inhyun and make lady jang being send to death and no one will compet with her,i loved drama jang ok jung but i don't know why people didn't watched since kim tea hee is the heroine ,but the story should be at list 60 episodes and script be good and the director also, i think people had cuirosty about lady jang more than lady choi

Madhawa My favourite drama and I love'n it, and I love u soo much han hyo joo ♡♡♡♡

Ted Chyn I have enjoyed watching the show. I have a question related to English translation of the word Slave? Is a slave in ancient Korea owned by his/her owner and can be sold or traded as property? Or slave simply means SERF or indentured servant - person without means and they are bound to the job or service they provides to another class of people with properties ? In Ancient China slaves existed pre Shang dynasty and it was seldom used from thereon.

mercy I love the theme song"nara nara". I love the little Dong Yi. I love Dong Yi's perseverance. I wonder how the real Dong Yi was. The King is a passionate lover. The drama revolves around our every day lives.

zainab d.kasim I love this movie...dongyi is my favorite

Tracey just finished watching Dong Yi, love this drama excellent cast . Actresses and actors performance was outstanding in portraying scenes especially the King and Dong Yi romance. The actress who portrayed Consort Jang her crying scenes were superb. Furthermore the child actors did a brilliant job at such a young age

hhj dong yi ( han hyo joo) is my favorite actress . i love her . she plays well .when i see this drama in some emotional situation that dong yi play in them i suddenly cry. i think that the king say his feeling to dong yi very nice . he plays well such as dong yi.

Leimaymay WOW. Just finished watching it and i can't believe that im done. It's like i can't accept the fact that im done. I can't move on :((( haha Jijin hee earned my love and respect in this drama. He will forever be one of my fave actors. Two thumbs for Dong yi and the evil BROTHER. haha I like the way he shows emotions and how he played his role. Very good drama. dont be bothered by the 60 episodes. trust me. its worth it! :)))

Aishwarya I love the drama so much... Everything was there...I could laugh; cry; get angry!! Its more like a real life to me! Above all the love story between the king and dong yi it so incredible that I could not sense anything fake! Love dong yi she compose herself not over reacted every thing about her is for us to learn! All in all every one did a great job in this drama! I have watched it like 7times now and still can't get enough of it and it will forever be in my collection! Your fan in Tanzania!

kim je kyung this drama is the best drama ever, i will watch again and again

i love this so much it begin when dongyi was a child until she became a queen XD

it is so touchable, i cry when dong yi's father died:'( but it is the best drama ever!!!!!!!!

Andang I soooper love this that i do not want to stop. No wonder it tops the chart.The king, dong yi (she fits the role, but i am a lee yo won fan) the two queens, chun soo and chief suh are very good actors plus the mommies, two musicians,the leading lady police officers are all so great. I do not like hae jeen, the brother, sorry for that. This must have been a big-budgeted drama because it needs so many extras, costumes and different places. The characters' characters, lolss on that, have been developed so well as the story progresses that it moved me, i.e. I hate hui's hypocrisy and how she toyed the king around her fingers, or how i pity dong yi, how tired must have been trying to avoid the soldiers because she really looks haggard, thin and pale. Overall, i rate this as 99% ( not 100 because i am a lee yo won fan lolsss.) korean dramas are so beautiful even though i am not a korean, i will keep on watching all your dramas. I love 49days,qsd,bong dal hee,jewel,heo jun, original version,lovers in paris, among others. Thank you and more power.

Kdramafan Big fan of choi suk bin here. She was one awesome lady, to accomplish what she did in her circumstances and environment she had to have been very to have a drama about her was such a huge gift!! I love the series thou it has it's flaws, but over all great ..!! The only thing I would complain is how incredibly nice was she... True she was a nice girl from history but would had liked the characters to haver a little of greed to give her flaws, I am sure that if in real life she was offered the queen title she wouldn't had rejected it...or maybe that was her greed as she said in one of the episodes that she was very greedy to the point that she wanted to everybody to be happy in a place, the palace, where that's not very possible . But For some reason I find her real story more touching...don't misunderstand me I LOVE the series but it could had been better...

they really wanted to give you a very  positive message, which I think they accomplished

Meryem I M from Morroco , I do not know how to describe my feeling, It's very cool series I've seen more than once...I hope I can see a new one....

Merina Toromon i love this movie. I learn alot from it!!!!

udari I love dongyi she's the best

MJ I Love this Drama forever!

omonigho Dis is lovely...I so much enjoyed dong yi..even if am nt a korean I have learnt so much from dis great series.the actors and actress are awesome.

sachin i think sri lankans are very lucky to watch this drama

yan dong yi is the best sageuk i hv ever seen, good cast, good storyline, amazing

Pamela Ok I started watching Dong Yi out of curiosity after watching JOJ drama, and I AM SO HAPPY I did it. now that I ve finished what is gonna be of my life! It was GREAT!! Love it! The storyline is absolutely captivating, thou between chap. 22-28 it drags a little, maybe because I was desperate for the king and Lady Choe to be together again, such a pure, deep and sincere love, they protected each other with all their means, Nobody could mess with her cause The King protected her till the end, now that make sense. the plot was brilliant and the conspiracy very intriguing, and you kept wondering was gonna happen now, I cried, laugh, got angry, and happy which a good drama should make you feel.Everybody did it great the actors were wonderful. Its funny, after I finished i started to come back to my favorites chapters. 1 to 6,11 to 17,21,22,23,28,29,30 to all they way to 60 Ok Yes I admit its almost the whole drama but I just LOVE IT. The little prince is so adorable, and the scenes of the king with his son are delightful. I was hesitating in the beginning because there were 60 chapters but at the end I wanted more and was very sad that it had finished So this one goes definitely to my top 5.

steven Achia I Love the the series, it captivating, am currently on episode 57 out of the 60, the whole Dong Yi stuff, the King, all that stuff is captivating. I usually return from work and at about 7:00pm I retire to my bed room and relax to watch the intrigue in the Korean series.

Specifically, One thing I appreciate about this series is that;

Dong Yi's self less character is a good portrayal of how we should live our lives - to me it portrays how we should be there for our friends, our family, and our workers, ie like Dong Yi over and over does for her Attendants.

I also appreciate the literal potrayal of how the pursuit for power, wealth and prominence may not be the cause for happiness in one's life. It could actually create misery ie as seen in Consourt Hui case.

I also note from the case of the deposed queen in the scene where she had been deposed and was even attacked by then queen hui's people that suffering can actually follow you, you need to be resolute.

I love the Princes and their love for each other

the intrigue that consort Hui places in the drama, makes one continue to watch.

I however noted that the King kept on marrying Queens whom he did not actually ever love, the Queens seem to be mere power and status symbols.

The King's desire for Dong Yi is also so over whelming that he is willing to sale off his king dom jus for that case

phillippine girl i love the episode that the king had his first night w/ dong yi..................................ayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!hope u all make anotfer movie like this

crite Just an avid fan of Han Hyo Jo... im avoiding to watch this because it is about 60 episodes and too much to download. However, with good comments on this I tried to watch and totally hooked up. now, im on the way to the 22nd episode. It is too much fun watching King Sukjong and Dongyi specially on the first time they met outside the palace when Dongyi did not notice it was the king she is together with.

NaRa Yes. I also watch Dong Yi for 2nd time. That Jang Ok-Jung movie feel like the director FORCING people to have good view of her. But definitely impossible and JOJ movie just a novel not the history. I love Dong Yi very much.

Mahdi Hekmatipour At the end of july 2013,i just finished downloading Jang ok-jung,living in love,but i don't know why after 2 episodes i turned to watch Dong Yi for the 11st time,and now i reached half,episode 30.Great,Great,Great Drama,love all actors&actresses,director,and the whole produce group. keep Fighting dear hyo-joo with your lovely smile

Hoi Louis Thank you "Lee So-Yeon" for such a great performance as Consort Hui! Your character was so deliciously evil towards the end of the series. What starts out as a simple tale of a driven political character with a moral center, she is driven to madness with bad advice from political operatives and relatives. You are a joy to watch each week. Too bad there weren't many face to face scenes with your character and Han Hyo-Joo's Consort Sook. So it was gratifying to have that final scene between you too before the execution. a fan. ps. You should've won best actress that year!

Roash The BEST and the SUPERB movie I've EVER watched Also THE BEST ,COOLEST AND THE PRETTIEST characters have been choosen to act in the movie.

                        All of the characters are acting nicely specailly the the one who is  acting as Dongyi(Hun Hyo Ju)  & Sukjon (Ji Jin Hee) also the other coolest and my loving acters and actresses ALso the one's who is acting as prince LEE HYUNG SUK and YOON CHAN.
                                LOVE YOU GUYS VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

princessky i love dong yi, the lovely little boy she gave birth to in the movie, jin ji hee especially wen dong yi passed the examination in the movie, i was thrilled and moved at the same time. aja fighting

Tharushi What a cooooooL drama.thanks for Korea.Lee so beon is well acting than Han hyo joo.and i love Bea soo bin.he's fighting is awesome.also he is so handsome.Jin ji hee is quiet scared for every thing.park ha sun us very pretty .I love this drama very much .

zinneyy I really wish people would stop comparing dong yi and jewel of the palace ( unless you wanna show the million ways in which dong yi supercedes it) jewel of the palace was a total snooze fest. I kept wondering throughout how in the world did people enjoy this show. I couldn't bring myself to watch it all. Dong yi was totally awesome. The only thing that could have made it better, would have been more kiss scenes!

madushan it was an amazing drama i ever saw.....i haven't any words to explain my feelings.

cik timah Love this drama so love in first sight..hope there are more drama as great as this..

Anu - Colombo just love this story soooooooo much & this lead me to find out & learn about Choi Suk-bin more & more.

parvin I realy love Dong yi -specialy Sukjong I am in iran iwill never forget Dong yi

Khaphy Interesting drama

Sandasara If you like Dong Yi, why not try Jewel in the palace - Dae Jang Guem? It's also Korean and is just as nice.

Lorell I love this drama! Especially "funny" moments of Dong Yi and King's romance! <3

It was also my first Korean drama, thanks to which I become in love with this kind of TV series and movies (I really love costume historical dramas!)

Sudhari I love Dong inspires me a lot...real master piece. i love all cast, but specially Police chief seo yong gi...Mr.Jung Jin Young, you are great..i love you always & forever <3...wish you good luck..and hope to see you in more movies and shows....

Thumbs up for Dong Yi.....<3

R.Chan Just finished watching Dong Yi (all 60 episodes) for the 2nd time. 대박! I just finished watching it the first time a little over a week ago and had to watch it again. No wonder it won so many awards. Such a great drama. Han Hyo Joo (best actress) and Ji Jin Hee (Male Top Excellence Award) so deserving of their awards. Especially Han Hyo Joo! American dramas/TV movies/Soaps are all crap compared to Kdramas. I am hooked on kdramas now. Am glad there are so many that have been subbed (English). I need to learn Korean (only know a few words and phrases for now) so I won't have to depend on subbed versions. But that may be awhile...

queenie sheene caneba i love "Dongyi"every night she watching dongyi.I was sad because dongyi was end june 15 2012.I am the number one fan of dongyi

D.Wicky A drama worth watching!! Gives a good knowledge to the viewer.... I love this drama a lot and the full cast....They have done their roles really well and wish them all with their future work!


UPEKSHA It just started telecasting in Sri Lanka! Seems really interesting~! SARANGHAEE DON YI~!

JayKemz This drama is very similar to Dae Jang Geum--understandable since it's the same director who directed these two dramas, but unforgivable since I find myself comparing the two inadvertently. In my opinion Lee Young-Ae would have made a better lead protagonist, I don't buy Han Hyu Joo's acting--it's a little overdone for my taste. I admit, sometimes I forgot that it was Han Hyu Joo who was lead character and thought instead that Lee Young-Ae was leading. It's the director's fault too, most of the instances featured in this drama are similar to those in Dae Jang Geum: orphaned female protagonist, hiding of ID, winning the favor of the royals, catching the King's eye (Though I admit this is where the story is centered unlike in Jewel i the Korean Palace) and so on and so forth...

I'm not really psyched whilst watching this drama...Lee Youn-Ae would have done it for me (Han Hyu Joo supporters, don't take offence :P )

Faith Agbayani Aloha from Hawaii!

Academy Award Winning Movie worthy of Best Movie, Best Actress Han Hyo Joo and Best Actor Ji Jin Hee, their stunning and heartwarming potrayals and unforgettable performances comparable to "Gone With the Wind". Most deserving of all awards in 2010 and hope to see more of these excellent Korean historical dramas! Purchased two sets and love watching "Dong Yi" and adore Han Hyo Joo. The whole production, direction, cast and crew contributed to a great motion picture.

nixie Ooh!!! I really love "Dongyi" and "Yi San, Wind of the Palace" - it's like a continuation with 136 episodes in all!!! Really great and absorbing dramas,. Actually, these 2 dramas , although historically not completely accurate, are too good to miss. Dong Yi is probably the best drama series (korean or not) that I will ever see. After reading all these good comments I cant help but want to add something too just to show my support for this series. Watching it makes me so happy and it makes me so dreamy. This is the best ever!

CaRLo I love you DONG YI!!!!!!

i love to watch Dong Yi all the time!!!

dramartist reviewer Ooh!!! I really love "Dongyi" and "Yi San, Wind of the Palace" - it's like a continuation with 136 episodes in all!!! Really great and absorbing dramas,. Actually, these 2 dramas , although historically not completely accurate, are too good to miss.

JenJacqs I Love Dong Yi, just as I love Queen Seon Deok and Jewel in the Palace. These are my top 3 historical drama.

charissa I love Dongyi really.. the best korean drama ever. i wish i could be like dongyi personality..intelligent,honest and etc aside from that shes so pretty!! in this korean drama the main character is not totally hurt so bad.. there's justice and I really love it..SUPERRRRRR.thanks GMA for let me watch these drama even in late night already, I still enjoy GOOD!!

Alice1435 So far, Dong Yi is the best Korean movie aired on Philippine TV. Even if I just finished the whole episodes, I still can't get over it. Quite disappointed though 'cause she never became queen. But the way she handle things ( being intelligent and selfless ) is really admiring and inspiring. And I like the way Dong Yi and King Suk-jong argue- I find it cute. Kyaaaaaaaa! I still can't get over it. T_______T

edna Personally, I believe this is the best Korean drama shown here in the Philippines. Great everything: story, casts, costumes, music, so heartwarming and inspiring. I specially love Han Hyo Joo. Her portrayal/characterization of Dong Yi was perfect; she was the best choice for the role. Ji Jin Hee as King was superb. I watched out for him in Jewel in the Palace but I fell in love with him in Dong Yi. It is my wish that they both visit the Philippines soon. There were weak and debatable points in some segments like when Dong Yi got struck with a sword and the date of birth of Prince Yeon Ing but overall the drama is GREAT!

donnajanebungabong I stand correctly that DONGYI is the most beautiful, wonderful, inspiring, and a high class drama. I am very thankful to GMA to let me discovered and watch DONGYI. I love Han Hyo Joo, muah.!!!!!!!

earlandintia/philippines I`m speechless from start up to the end..i didn`t expect that this will drama will inspire me much as what i expect..i had no regret that i didnt sleep because it is worth it..even though i saw this drama late in the philippines i was happy that i saw a very wonderful and beautiful korean drama like this...

I bow in you....

YourMySerendipity Ohh Emm! This Historical Korean Drama Love Story Dongyi is truely AWESOME & GREAT!! To Han Hyo Jo & Ji Jin Hee, Your the Best Love Couple! I ADORE YOU BOTH.. I'm AMAZED by this! CONGRATS!! & KEEP IT UP. \^____^/

twinkle castro I never forget this drama because there are scenes here that I began to cry and the beauty of this story my heart until I die I will not forget it.

i love you dong yi

twinkle castro I never forget this drama because there are scenes here that I began to cry and the beauty of this story my heart until I die I will not forget it.

eunireign i love donyi PRomise

richard paz it is a great korean drama, all aspects of the entire drama is perfect!!!! i really love to watch a drama like this!!! the palace theme is really eye catchy!!!! i hope to see more drama like this!!! it made me complete!!!!

Jana Let me just say, I finally finished the series. It was definitely a beautiful historical drama. I watched with English subtitles and I was never disappointed. The actors were definitely good. I am an Afican American and I love history. This was just great all around ..very I have been introduced o the Korean culture or Yes, I also watched YiSan and Jewel of the Palace ...I highly recommend.

Helen del rosario I really love this show... The story was so great and all the actors and actresses was so great in there acting...keep it up guys!

Jae Love this series. It's one of the first series to have a happy ending for the lovebirds! ^.^ The best scenes were the first and last meeting where she climbs his back! He made me laugh when he basically told her she gained weight! She was the same as always, calling him a wimp.

victoria Love Dong Yi... Great movie.

Elcaloca ..This drama is one of the best korean historicaldrama ive ever watched! I love how king and dong yi give so much kilig to those who watched it!haha :D

iLove_DongYi The death of Dong Yi and Sukjong is unknown and even in the series, they didn't show it. But I guess that Dong Yi died because of a health problems. As seen on the last episode of the series, Dong Yi is having an epistaxis although acdg to the doctor that she is fine. Sukjong died on 1720, 2 years after Dong Yi has passed away. Maybe he died because of Loneliness over Dong Yi's death. XD

But overall, I LOVE DONG YI! It is the best Korean Drama that I have seen so far. I definitely watch this series all over again. :)

yuki my family got hooked up with this...started in watching only in a channel....till they decided to watch this in dvd....and after few days...they keep on saying ye mama...

mc I finished to watch this series and all I can say...really GREAT!!! Love each episodes and the love story between the King and Dong Yi.. I am a fun of Jee Jin Hee

korean_girl Han Hyo Joo Seniryl Chukhahamnida! Thynthynhan kongani itkiryl paramnida

Mousey Amazingly great! Stunning performances by all.

stephanie Dong Yi is probably the best drama series (korean or not) that I will ever see. After reading all these good comments I cant help but want to add something too just to show my support for this series. Watching it makes me so happy and it makes me so dreamy. This is the best ever!

Chelle Two thumbs up

Chelle This drama really caught my interest. It's like reading a book and then feeling every character in it. And I love the twists of every episode plus the "kilig" factor of Dong Yi and the King. It's like a fairy tale come true

Dimitri Georgiou Dong-yi Please can you tell me what happen next in Jan.30,2012 on dongyi?

ailenis net chief Seo Yong-Gi left the palace and assist dong yi in her journey to help lowborn people.he trained men to become a swordsmen/policemen.dong yi died before king sukjong.they never mentioned the crown prince because they want to emphasize about what happen to dong yi's son.prince yeon-ing who become the 21st king of joseon.anyway the crown prince become the 20th king of joseon but he died after his fourth year in throne.the two prince both ascend the throne. hope it helps you

maila I like the character of ji jin hee and lee hyu seon.they are the one who give the Life of the story.thumbs up for the 2 artisy.

net can i ask for the end of the story? i did not understand its ending..... where could chief suh gone? and why dongyi and the king died? also the crown prince was out of the story too

megz Perfect korean drama dong yi I realy like it....

tin this movie drama caught my heart. i'm very glad that korea has a kind of this movie.

mary This show rocks, the production values everything is by far better than what the Hollywood cookie cutters throw out. They tell an exciting story that has romance, adventure, and intrigue all without smuting it down! Terrific job - worthy of an Emmy.

Mars Guyz you should try it's trailer'll go crazy.i downloaded from tubidy.but here in africa there is not dvds so we're really strugling.iam tired of our broadcast that bring korean run only therty minutes,when it's supposed to run obout 1 hour.iam so desperate i need my own dvd so i can play wheneve i want.

Mars All what iam crazy obout is it's mp3.though i cant understand anything i'm crazy about it.i haven't watched the series yet but i downloded from tubidy you should try to it's trailer song,you should go crazy.

파비오 Fireflight Perfect drama! DONG YI <3

Joseon I am a fan of historical dramas, and Dong Yi is one such great drama. It brings me back to eras that I only read in history books, so in effect period dramas bring the past to life. Great job MBC!

serjio hi again i also watched yi san the wind of the palace its also very nice and attractive drama i've seen it in korean language english subtitles and in kurdish languages very very nice i hope kurdsat tv soon dub the new korean drama translate and show coz i love it and we r now very familiar with korean culture and traditions ,if u watch korean drama u can lear too much things on live and peoples hope everyone enjoy all korean drama i watched many and now i watch Jumong - Prince of The Legend very nice thanks for korean peoples and i hope to find a beautiful korean girl to be my future love and wife forever

holy_angels I am a huge fan of DONG yi Drama. Its magnificent . Its one of my all time great along with dae jang geum. Kudos to the Dong yi team and the management . Great work ! Keep it up . It would be really glad if dong yi is uploaded in you tube so that all the world can get a chance to watch this master piece drama. Thank you

korean girl o.o.o "Dong Yi" I love so much this drama its very interesting I'm a fan of Han Hyo Joo too She's my favorite actress in the world I Love Your acting in this drama Hyo Joo Fiting!

jack smith The last part of the movie has very bad english translations. WHAT HAPPEND? Dong Yi is translated as Together Yi? Me means yes? I don't know what happend at the end now and it is driving me crazy

Zana Dong Yi TV series (in Kurdish) just ended in Kurdistan (north Iraq) every one was hooked to the TV, lol people were always talking about the events and often argue over who is the most hated character. But for me the star has to be Han Hyo Joo (also known as ''Dongi'') the girl is simply a breath of fresh air.

but I am disappointed that she did not persisted to get few mistakes checked and re shoot the seen where she is holding her 2 month old dead baby in her arm, you see the baby's hand move very clearly over 5 times.

Devil I Love this Drama ! my life live for watch this drama ! My superstar is ! Yoon chan! Yoon chan !Yoon chan ! Yoon chan Yoon chan ! Yoon chan ! Yoon Chan ! Yoon chan ! Yoon Chan ! Yoon Chan ! YOon Chan ! Yoon Chan ! Yoon Chan !

Angela One of the best korean drama i ever watched! Although i dont really understand the last part but i still loved it...>0<

Sau Great movies. I watch it. Dong Yi endure all hardship and finally have peace in the end. Love story that break my heart. I wish that some men like the king yeh. hoy

Bip-bip Gedorah was homosexual? Because I see a picture entitled: Gedorah's husband.

pj every tym i hear the sound of a solemn music i remember my favorite korean drama.. "dong-yi" it reminds me of how choi dong-yi plays hageum... "dong-yi" is a must seen movie for all ages...!

will I watch all series for 5 days, and I feel empty and lonely on the next days... as if the characters are part of my life...

pj can't help myself to watch it again! dong-yi is one of the best drama ive ever seen!

Amber I'm a fan of Han Hyo Joo.She's my favorite actress in the world.I'm learning Jap bcos I heard she liked jap movies.I like her better with her child,Geum in the drama.They're compatible and shown great acting together.It almost feel like she's her real son.I hope she getting another daesang in coming years.Congratulation for getting daesang at MBC award ceremony.I hope you be better in 2011 and sings a lot of warm songs and sincere dramas.I like her best in Soul Special.She's fitted for the roll.I hope she to visit to Myanmar if it's possible.

pj dong-yi is a heartfilling drama! two thumbs up!

Mia That my Dream DoNg Yi... Wow, I LoVe DoNg Yi... Very Excellent Drama... ... pss! Should I married Dong Yi ?

.....  ;)

aa agreed with li.though its historical yet im able to laugh.good storyline with a twist of humor especially the king.ji jin hee is superb

albert watched it for a while, then it got stupid, too many twists an turns, how may times are the bad "guys" given a chance, they go to bad , then good, it spends too much time portraying bad people then try to make them good again....stopped watching it, alltogether....

GiaLam Ilove this drama . It's so interesting . I love the act of the King in this movie .I also like the other actors & actress too . They are perfomed very well . I feel sory for Bodyguard Cha .It' better if have another lovely girl for him & the Queen wouldn't die . Can't wait to watch this drama untill the end...

Li Hope to see an extension of the drama.

Li I love the acting of Ji Jin Hee as King Sukjong, he projects a warmth and endearing personality when it comes to a romantic scene with Dong Yi. Although, Han Hyo Joo acting is good too, but in love scene she is a bit stiff, as it is always the King who hug her first.

kim soo-wook Han Hyo-Joo is stunning!!! I hope she always have a great role like her role in this drama and two previous drama

Husker Another great series! I see a number of actors and actresses from "Lee San" and the "Great Queen Seondeok". Can't stop watching this, the Korean women are so gorgeous! Keep up the good work here in America, MBC!

Mei Lin As I watch this drama, excellent story and performance. Suggestion, will you have the part 2 after frew years? The story of Dong - Yi's son 21st King of Jeoson. I will recommend Yoon shi Yoon to be the actor together with Eugene of Baker king, Kim Tak Gu, and possible the rest of the original cast of Dong-yi. It'll be another hit maker =D

Mei Lin >>>

fiziee Great drama and outstanding acting. My beloved Han Hyo Joo is there too. Saranghae. <3

Gene This is a very fun and heart warming drama. Sort of like Dae Jang Geum meets Roman Holiday. That probably won't make sense until you see it. Han Hyo Joo is (of course) wonderful. :)

Sonny Beautiful and fascinating Drama, excellent grade in every aspect od a wonderful work. Thanks so much.

refy Ah........Han Hyo-Joo I Love Your Acting In This Drama Faboulous!!! ^_^

Chum COOL! Many of them have acted together in other dramas before:

- Han Hyo Joo + Lee So Yeon = in "Spring Waltz" - Han Hyo Joo + Bae Su Bin = in "Brilliant Legacy" - Lee So-Yeon + Bae Su Bin = in "Temptation of an Angel"

ana i love this drama...i am a fan of Korean drama...very very nice.

anna im watching this now i loveee it <3

jezebel Trag nadejde ca va fi difuzata in Romania, dar cine stie cand se vor gandi sa o dea pe post!!!!!
