Baek Dong Su loses his father years before his own birth. Raised by his father's friend, he aims to become the best swordsman in Joseon. During his training, Dong Su meets another boy around his age, Yeo Un, who becomes his best friend and greatest rival. When their paths cross again in the future, it becomes clear that the two of them were never on the same side in the ongoing conflict.
Both series, though theme and media may be different, are alike in terms of the protagonists' goals (i.e. to be Hokage/to be the best swordsman) and the hardship they endure against their rival (i.e. Sasuke/Yeo Un).
Both historical drama are about a young man who has lost his parents because they were killed by cruel politicans. Both families were suspected to be the head of a revolt against the king.
They are also full of fights and action scene and involve light comedy and romance.
