carla i stopped watching after Lady Deoyeong died, tsk!

Lhay They should have not let Doyoung leave Deamdeok, the ratings went bad when she leave Gogoryeo and went to Baekje. #tsk His new wife the Queen is selfish.

P. Quinones I would like to purchase an authorized DVD of the complete series; but I can't find any place that has one where the copyrights are properly observed. Having been on the receiving end of plagiarism and knock-offs, I understand the producers' need to protect their rights. I live on a fixed income and can't afford lots of money for entertainment. Thank you for your prompt reply. Dsynr

JC This series is one of a kind and highly recommended. After wathching it, all other sageuk korean dramas just can't compare. I always think back to Dam Duk's battle roars and his dominance as a Great Conqueror on the battlefield . Lee Tae Kon really played the character spectacularly, I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much as I did if it wasn't for him.

dramalover does anyone know where i can find the soundtrack of this series....

dramalover Lee Tae-Kon's roar is the best....

Marinho The greatest mini series I ever saw. At per with the likes of Rome, Spartacus, 24 and Shakka Zulu. Very impressed with the Korean production.The only issue I had was that the subtitles went mid way in season 2 and I have been trying to get my hands on the Original DVD for 2 years now. Any idea of where I can get it?

mustee I love nd like this because it continue the history of king chumo(jumong) but we quickly need season 10 nw i dont the way season 9 finished pls

Darksaber On History Side: One of the most successful emperor and ruler Gwanggaeto the great, he is the best on his time, successfully submit Khitan, Mohe, Baekje, Silla, Gaya, and Houyan as its vassal. A very brilliant commander, seriously he was comparable to Alexander the Great. I may Call Him Alexander the great of Asia. the sad part is he died at the age of 39. thats why his son King Jansu was the golden age of Goguryo.

On the drama part: very well executed, Dae Jo young was my favorite (but i also like Jumong, Kingdom of the wind, Queen Seon Deok) until i saw this. im not really a fan of Legend. its a very good thing that someone revive this on a very great way. be proud Korean Country you have one of the most important person in HIstory Damdeok. King Gwanggaeto the great.

JOTEE I LOVE THIS MOVIE, KOREAN MOVIE THE BEST WAR MOVIE,DNT 4GET TO WATCH JUMONG AND DAE JOYOUNG,THEY ALSO VE CHARACTERS 4RM JUMONG'S MOVIE SUCH AS DAE SO HYEAPBO ND SO ON

adebayo Gbolahan I love this film but yet ti watch it to the full end . I don't want to watch anoda movie apart from this korean historical movies the like of jumong,conqueror, etc. U guys are doing well. Please keep it up.....

deniz The only thing I feel sorry for in this film is the death of yeon salta,ung sim and sagal hyeon they have a hard death unrest the film is outstanding

azeez i love this drama in the sense the theme, plot, setting infact everything is great

simon i love this drama from the beggining i really love it if i can o wone to have it in my home

Cute chic Love the drama, reminds me of Jumong. Even the lead actor looks like him atimes- he's cute and hot just like Jumong. Love the settings, beautiful landscape too. My only grouse with the series is the styling, make up. Why were all the actors/ actresses hair, brows, beards dyed brown? Was it necessary for a historical drama as I don't believe people were dyeing their hair in those days. It made them look pale, bland and boring particularly the female characters. Please next time, leave the actors with their natural black hair, they look better that way. Great series all the same. Have fallen in love with Korean drama esp. the historical ones- no more Hollywood movies for me or films from my country' s movie industry known as Nollywood

Would like to know the other movies the main actor, the King has acted in. Am a big fan of his now. Love his acting and he's cute too...

Wongel I love this drama. It's one of my favorite historical dramas. It was really amazing the way it ended. Great work everybody! thank you for your hard work.

Cici I saw the finale last night of Gwanggaeto, The Great Conqueror. It was the best ending ever of all the historical dramas I have watched. BRAVO to everyone involved in this film! Lee Tae-Kon, you are so believable as the King and the way you ride a horse is magical. I especially love the message from King Gwanggaeto at the end to Koreans reminding them that they are his descendants. How very cool and uplifting was that? Great writing!!!

Benjamin King Gwanggaeto the Great episode 92 is final episode?

Freedom Drops I am a big fan of the King Gwanggaeto the Great.

I like it so much .

Dubai, UAE

Amable Selorm Oh I love these Korea stories. Please give us more.

kicha I start getting inspiration from all the ancient War movies. Koryo was a good movie too. Jewel in the Palace also nice Korean Serial Drama. Everyone should watch it.

KRIS the KLINGON I love this show. Pure fun. Armies, swords, all the good stuff. Kings and ministers sitting at long tables and talking about strategies that don't work. Hey--just like Thanksgiving!!! Lee in-Hye is so cute, she'd be so gorgeous without the headband. Recommend this show, GWANGGAETO. to your friends. Really good stuff! KRIS KAG.org

MARTIN MARTINEZ MY RECORDER ID NOT RECORD EPISODE 52 ON 11-27-11 IS THERE ANY WAY TO VIEW IT AGAIN...COMPUTER OR ???IS SERIES AVIABLE ON DVD

Nana This is an incredible series depicting Korean history. All the actors are to be congratulated and recognized. Thank you KBS Los Angeles for bringing this to TV for viewer enjoyment.

Betty Gilmore I love this historical drama. The acting, the costumes, the attention to detail I am a cative audience. I wait for each espisode. My husband thinks I'm dafted but after stumbling the subtitled in english Korean channel I have become a fairly frequent viewer. I especially like this drama the the Princess Man. Keep it coming.

Cici Last night's episode 10/9/11 was incredible! The acting between Jeong Tae-Woo and Lee Tae-Kon was the best I think I have ever seen. I was sitting on the edge of my seat crying watching the forest (hunting) scene between these two. It was so heart wrenching and they were both amazing. I hope that this series can make it to the Cannes Film Festival somehow. I would give an award to everyone working on this show. I thought The King of Legend was great but as this show goes along, it gets better and better. Lee Ta-Kon has stolen my heart and KBS, you rock!

mehlee its really a great movie wher u can see that even the earlier generation greed and envy exist and u cannot trust anybody iam a fan of it and every sunday and saturday night i c to it that i watch ittch and never missed it love u king gwangeto....

elena where can I stream this show?

Cici King Gwanggaeto the Great is an excellent followup to The King of Legend. It is a wonderful history lesson and it think it is done very well. Once again, KBS shows us a great TV series done so very well in every area.. acting, storyline, costumes, landscape, etc.

I think the ratings will continue to climb on this. It definitely deserves good ratings. Lee Tae Gon is a superb actor. He doesn't even have to say anything. His facial expressions tell you so much. That is a sign of a great actor and I know he is going to go very far. Actually, everyone in this show does a fantastic and believable portrayal of their individual character. I love, love love this movie!

I look forward to each weekend. The story is really starting to come together now and I love the fact that this is true Korean history. Thank you KBS for such quality TV and especially "thank you" for the sub-titles.

Katherine Kang I love Lee Tae Gon in this epic. A pity that rates for this weekend is so low. Perhaps, there is some holidays in Korea and people are away. Never mind, I truly pray it will hit 30% soon.

bread Very nice show i hove you continue this drama series of the history.

persian girl I've heard kim seung soo will also play as Go woon Is he the villain? I hope so :) I loved his character in Jumong Tv series as Daeso

White Angel As much as I'm anticipating this drama, I think I will be missing Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi. :(
