Lee Pretty good. First 3-4 episodes seemed fairly slow, but then it really picked up and got interesting.. The writer seems to have a fairly good understanding of the political relationships and power struggles that were going on during that time.

One totally baffling character is the Overlord's stepson, who is condemned to die by drowning by the new Overlord, for essentially no rationale reason.

Having escaped a certain death, you would think he would not risk it again by coming back into Kangdo to see his mother. As I'm watching this, I'm repeatedly thinking WAFI ("what a foolish individual", except with expletives instead of "foolish individual"). Frankly, if he does get caught (I'm in the middle of watching it right now), I can't say that I would feel too sorry for the guy -- he had a pretty idea of the risks he was taking.

zerah for sure this one is THE BEST KDRAMA! Congratulations from my heart! and I want to give a special CONGRATS to the screen player! Finally I could enjoy a decent and wonderful kdrama! Bravo per tutti!

Nelson (sirwebb) Wow!! I really don't know what to say,in fact am in love with Korean movies love watching their films because it's educational,inspiring and also has moral teachings.It's one of the best Korean movies I have seen and watched.and also congratulations to all those who in one way or the other participated in the production of this great drama....keep it up!! And also keep the flag flying.Hoping to see and watch the season8,love u all

manna the best Korean drama I've ever seen! CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN! and GREETINGS FROM ROMANIA

manna Congratulations to the entire team who worked on this wonderful drama!

Allen Adekunle i am looking for season 7 this drama is very educative and interesting it also good for all age and background please as i am a fan let us have it in Nigeria

UC Wonderful film, but ℓ can't find the proud Solitai among the cast...

Ojo adebanjo This film is so sweet pls wish time is the season 8 we come out i need to look it

KING KITE I like korean dramas but its so difficult to obtain them at places that are not highly developed like tanzania Musoma municipality i have serched for this drama of soldier god of war but for so ,long i have not obtain the iriginal one just low quality cds

Suzdar we kurdish in north of iraq love this drama so much and we love all people korean

tncdel Very well done production. Script-writing was high quality, as was the acting. My only minor complaint was that there was no real eye-candy among the main female stars. Kim Gyu-Ri and Hong Au-Reum are not even 2nd tier-level actresses looks-wise. And it was almost comical when the better-looking Kim Ha-Eun was criticized as not being as beautiful as Hong Au-Reum [with her slightly goofy-looking looks more suitable for comedy].

My personal DVD library contains hundreds of K-drama DVD sets.

odumosu bukola wow,i really don't know what to say about this movie,i so much love it, i can never stop watching korean movie in my life,please produce more interesting and facilitating movies,I LOVE YOU ALL**kiss kiss to you all**

tiffany and co Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something. I believe that you can do with a few percent to pressure the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

branewaiver Truly good stuff. All of the acting, directing, writing, costumes, pace is brilliant. Congratulations. You've established a very high standard and I've learned a lot with respect to Korean culture, history, and politics by watching this (as well as other) series. Each time I watch a production I think it can't get better than this. God of War takes the cake so far.

Nyangker Mayom @Adejumo Obafemi,

The Goryo(Koryo) came before the Joseon period. After the end of Koryo, Joseon was established by King Taejong and his compatriots.

Adejumo Obafemi I love this drama.. I like the acting of Wol A and Kim jun... I love Korean Movies generally like Jumong,Conqueror,Dong yi and the rest.. God of war is also nice.. But i will like to know the did the Joseon period came before Goryeo.please i will like someone to reply preferably as Text.. Thanks

KING (from Thailand) I love GOD of WAR so much ^__^ I'm King from Thailand. now in Thailand shows this movie. I'm excied to see next Episode, everyday !!! make me freshen WoW  ! ^0^ !

Michael Shokpeka This is the best drama I ever saw. I love the soundtrack, the story line...I love everything about the Drama.

Andreea I think is one of the best kdramas of this year. I like the story,the acting,the OST(Super Junior Kyuhyun - Inoo). Annyeong (^ . ^)

Bong A great drama but where to watch the episode...

SgtMaj Great drama, how come the episodes are slow to be translated to english subtitles? I guess business ha...anyways great show.

greenluvs I'm on episode 12... like it so far. To the posters below who feel the need to post what is going to happen: you ever heard of spoiler alerts? Sheesh

Bonbon damn, Lee Song-Yi married Kim Yak-Sun and they had 2 children..

fzl stop watching at episode 17 when the heroine died(Wol A) and the culprit got away. If they wanted to make an action drama, don't start romantically and kill the heroine. Just start by people dying from the first episode.

Rhu Don't know if it will last for 50 episodes, but it started out great!

Dark_Howler This drama is great from my perspective. But I regret starting to watch this before it's half way though. It's very addicting for me, and now I'm crying tears of firecrackers because I hate waiting for new releases.

lisbeth i love the soundtrack.. Inoo.. sing by Kyuhyun Super Junior..

siar wow..looks like another amazing drama from MBC Korea..
