I usually like Go A Ra but I found her character really annoying in this drama :(

although it left many plot strings loose like what happened with Dan Se, i definitely recommend it for the relationships between the Hwarang knights.

Really boring. No chemistry between the leads. I only liked V's character because he was cute.

I'm one of the people that enjoyed this drama until the very end. Every time I was watching an episode, the time was passing too fast maybe because I didn't have high expectations but it turned out to be better than I thought.

The acting was good, not that good from some actors (Go Ara for instance, she had the same pouty expression throughout the entire drama but I really liked her character). I was impressed by Park Hyung Shik's acting, also I really liked Minho's and V's acting since they're singers in the first place. I liked so much the characters!

The OST was beautiful and so were the costumes.

The ending was a bit too rushed for me because:
I wanted to know what Jinheung accomplished after he became king and what was with Seonwoo's illness; what was the cause for it to happen?

4/5 because it was such a good watch for me!

I don't know what to think of this drama.
The acting was generally bad, the chemistry between the main couple nonexistent and the plot had some major holes and was sometimes too long and sometimes too rushed.
I didn't like the main couple. A Ro was so annoying most of the time and Sun Woo seemed fake.
However, I really liked the hwarang boys and Ban Ryu and Su Yeon were the cutest couple ever.
I also liked the ending, even though it seemed like a last minute decision for both the screenwriter and the people in the drama.
I have to admit though that, even though i skipped and skipped and skipped scenes, this drama kept me watching so I guess it was not that bad?
It wasn't a good quality drama but it was entertaining.
I wouldn't recommend it but if you wanna watch it there's not much I can do, right?
Good: 3/5

@fyoo my God, you're absolutely right!
they completely forgot his illness. And the princess had it too!

@ilate @warmlia I agree with everything you guys said lol that's pretty much what I wanted to say here too.

I really enjoyed this drama but the romance (esp.the main couple) really ruined it for me. If it was more focused on the guys (it's called Hwarang??) and the politics it would have been great. But no,they wasted time on couple that had absolutely no chemistry and basically just, Ara's character was annoying. I didn't really like Sunwoo either.
