It is a multifaceted masterpiece which can appeal to multifarious crowds: it is a love story, a political drama, a comedy, a tragedy, a musical, a historical gallery, and maybe more.
LJK was freakingly beautiful but it's weird I like his character most in this movie....hmmm....imagine if he's a girl...people would say a beautiful 'weird' girl I suppose...but he's excellent

i was surprised how korean film makers are becoming more and more liberated in their movies. he(lee joon-ki) is freakishly BEAUTIFUL. i dont see him as a man in this all, while Woo-seong won me over his acting skills..very impressive.
lee jun ki is beautiful even he became a lady.

A tragic love story, eventhough against nature. But really touch my heart. Woo-seong, Joon-ki, both done well.
