This 100-episode epic drama vividly depicts the life of King Dae Jo-yeong and other heroes of the Balhae Kingdom, which dates back 1300 years ago. The role of Dae Jo-yeong is portrayed by actor Choi Su-jong, while the role of Yi Hae-go, Dae Jo-yeong’s rival for the supremacy in the northern territories, is portrayed by actor Chung Bo-seok. The two also face off over the love of Cho-rin, a woman from the Georan tribe, and King Bojang’s niece, Suk-yeong. The role of Cho-rin is played by Park Ye-jin, while Suk-yeong is portrayed by Hong Su-hyun. Several key historic figures in the drama are played by seasoned middle-aged actors, whose masterful acting underscores the drama’s well-knit plot. The drama drew the spotlight even before its premiere for efforts to produce a perfect picture, as even a special KBS video team was set up to create true-to-life fighting scenes, such as a massive siege warfare between Goguryeo and the Tang Dynasty created using 3D digital characters and the scene showing the collapse of a mountain during the Ansi Fortress battle.

Amadu Adamu I have developed deeper love for Koreans based on the movie entitled dae juyoung. I wish I will get an opportunity to visit south Korea and interact with the passionate individual actors of the movie. Infact I have been moved by the qualities used in movie such as loyalty, trust, respect, commitments to services, leaders love for subordinates, and others. If I can only ask some questions based on areas I'm not clear, I would be happy. can you please provide such opportunity?

Toni u forgot the second best actor!!!!!!!!!! Lee Hae Go! who died in part 133!!

sani My best drama ever. I had watched many korean historical drama like Jumong, Soldier, Iron empress, but my love for this one is unique. The writer[s] and the director[s] are perfect, the scenes are in order, the actors too all played their roles accordingly. At first, I dislike watching, but as i persevere, it was not in vain. To me, Dae Jo young is number one. Choi so Jong fit his role. Right now in Nigeria, Korean series has taken over english and roman film. I love Korea
