Greetings from Türkiye to Korea.

I love Korean historical tv series alot.I believe Similar culturel issues found at both cultures makes them more enjoyable for Turkish people too.

I wish to see more of this wonderfull series.

If Some historical based scenerios were shot about Central Asia,Middleeast and Far Asian relations in history;that would sure make more people fall in interest in these kind of series.

Series about Cengiz Kagan were woderfull too;but also not that deep in cultural issues I mentioned above sadly.

I am really looking forward to see a Headpiece from Korean producers a wide and deep series about Ancient history of Asia and may be even relations with middleeast.

Korean productions are best about setting historical base and background and some romantic fantasy scenerio added on it.

I will keep following these series always as long as Turkish television give them too.

I want to thank everyone who took part in these wonderfull pieces of art.

Thank you very much.

Hello from the United States!

Great series, I can watch it online but am now searching to buy the DVD set. It is certainly worth paying for and would like to have it as part of my favourite shows/movies collection. I also hope everyone else discovers just how epic this series is.
