I still don't get why Hae Su wanted to see Wang So in the last episode. It's not like she would give her daughter to him or ask him to come live with her. She knew clearly that he wasn't willing to leave his throne since that's the answer she got when she asked him the second time. (He was willing to do when she asked him that the first time.)

I'm happy with the ending. But I can't deny the fact that I wanted to see Wang So in the modern age. XD At these times, I wish Koreans would make real "specials", not "specials" that only include interviews and behind the scenes footage. I love watching those too but there are times you just want to see something additional at the end of the series.

I think the screenwriter just couldn't use the time travel element well. As someone who loves titles about time travel, I just don't think this title could be considered as one. She should have added more references from the modern world. Somehow, Hae Su has gotten used to the ancient era so quickly. I would have wanted to see more scenes where she was troubled with the differences.

@jeaudrey I feel you! Still hurts!
Lee Jun Ki really is the king of historical dramas.

I feel the same @limenora
So, it`s been one week and i still can't get over this drama.
He is so powerful that you can't forget the scenes.. A pure marterpiece, because the impact that it left.
Miss this. but i cryed so much at the end, that still hurts.
And everytime i hear ''can t you hear my hear'' i fell so nostalgic

Okay, it's been two days since I've left my review, and I can't forget this drama.
Them feels... I need to rate it to a masterpiece...
BTW, the OST is life... can't stop listening the OST.
Especially the song called "Will be back"
Ahhhh....I feel like crying, seriously.

There is one thing I love in this drama very much; they don't sugarcoat.
I cried my eyes out on the last episodes.
About the ending...
Wow...never expected such a dramatic ending. But I really liked that it wasn't a cheesy happy ending, which makes no sense, since in real life there isn't an option either to have a happy ending for Hae Soo and Wang So.
Still I shipped them soooo badly... I wonder how she felt after she realized it wasn't a dream. And what about Wang So? Now he knows he has a daughter from Hae So. And what about his son? He knows how it feels to be thrown away, yet he refuses to meet with his son...
So many questions, edgy characters.

One thing really bothered me: it felt so cheap! The costumes, the makeup, the hairdos...
otherwise I really liked it, 5/4!

Amei! 5/5

I did not even know this was a remake when I started watching it, but found out a few episodes in. I think that may be why it was lacking in some areas, but overall I liked this drama to an extent. I mostly watched it for the whole "transported to another era" part, because I have a particular interest in time-travel stories, so I was a bit disappointed when all of that faded into the background. Lee Jun Gi was dreamy, as usual, even though he wasn't the main reason I watched this. I am disappointed by the ending though. I'd been watching on Drama Fever and thought there was one episode left (turned out to be cast greeting video).
I had imagined...
that she would come back from the past, still in the water, and Wang So reborn would rescue her. Honestly would have been a better ending. They should have at least made him appear reborn in the end, since the reappearance of the Astronomer implied that...A bit lame if you ask me!

Not even close to the chinese drama, which had better characters, acting and storyline. The acting disappointed me so very much. But I like the 4th and 10th princes better in this version. Lee Joong Ki's acting was really outstanding and I'll be sure to watch more dramas with him. Baekhyun's last scenes were really enjoyable and I'm proud of him. The 3rd prince was a bonus and I'm disappointed his character wasn't as great as I thought he could be... I felt the writers made him look too cheap while the actor worked well (mainly after he went crazy!) Characters I really liked in the other drama were really bad in this one like the emperor (the king in this case), the 8th prince (Oh My God how much have I hated him in SHR), the 13th and 14th princes, the 8th prince's wives made into one and others... IMO they made a poor job on a lot of aspects of this remake and as a Bu Bu Jing Xin die hard fan I was very disappointed. I had to force myself to watch til the end but only because I wanted to see for myself what others had seen in this drama but unfortunately I couldn't. It doesn't mean I had no fun with this because I really did. I really can't forget Lee Joong Ki, Baekhyun and Hong Jong Hyeon and I'm sure they are the reason why I've got to finish SHR.
