another successful Coreean story
31 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

delicate instrument of propaganda, nice, refined, delicate, charming, version of Cinderella, arena for credible villains, ambition, fight for values and life, puzzle of revolution, power, love story and sacrifice, rivalries and high moral values, it is one of beautiful forms of propaganda for Coreean past. and little more. because it is not only exploitation of a success recipes but way to present traces of history nuances in a soft manner. so, another Coreean successful series. and a seductive story , part of a long chain but, in same time, special, mixture between a fairy tale and the laws of power and honesty as basic instrument to not be only slave of power.
