Synopsis

At the height of imperialism in the 1930s, Lee Gang To is a high ranking officer of the Japanese police force. Reviled by his fellow Koreans as a traitor to his own country, the coldly pragmatic Gang To chose to pledge his loyalty to the Japanese government and the emperor, a decision even his mother scorns him for, his late father having sacrificed everything to reclaim their homeland. While skilled at his job, he's soon being thwarted at every turn by the mysterious Gaksital, a masked hero to the people and a symbol of the independence movement. After a shocking personal discovery, both present tragedy and memories of his own past open his eyes anew to the true nature of his country’s oppressors, and Gang To finds himself donning Gaksital's mask, fighting against the very people he worked alongside to become Korea’s unlikely savior.

The male lead in both dramas helps the poor citizens who are unfairly treated by the nobles. The similarity of these dramas is that they show how and why the main character became a masked hero.

Both lead protagonists are seeking revenge for the sake of their fathers. In both, highly-regarded people did something that both leads, who have a nickname ("Bridal Mask" and "City Hunter") and wear a mask to hide their identity, want to be revealed. Both of them have quite good fighting scenes and also a sorrowful romance.

I remember when I nearly died waiting every week for new episodes to air ^^ this whole thing is amazing. Just the fact, that you never know what will happen next, is what makes it addictive.

I still can't believe how the story developed. I mean, you can't even compare the first episode to the last one. Since nothin' remained the same.

Awesome drama, but not the kind I would rewatch though. It has too much violence for my taste. I understand their history is like that and they were treated like that by the Japanese but all that torture is really not something I want to see again.

I love the message of hope, I think that people that fights for their rights are people that should be remembered.
