korean epic dramas by yeoreum

orean Epic Dramas are very incomparable... You will surely like them all... When i finished watching Dae Jang Geum (DJG), it took me months to get over with the DJG fever... Then came Seodongyo... It may not have come equal with the achievements of DJG, but still, it's so captivating that you really could not tell which one is better... I love them both and still watch my favorites scenes from time to time...
