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.

Eu adoreiiiii esse dorama!! Achei incrivel essa mudança que ocorre que bandido no começo vira mocinho no final e vice versa, gostei do fundo histórico, das cenas de ação e de tensão (alias, que dorama tenso, hein? ele deixa vc tensa do começo ao fim =O) Gaksital era muito foda!!!
Eu tinha uma lista dos caras que eu adorava nesse dorama que era o Kang To (meu bebê *-*), Katsuyama (o lindo guarda costas silencioso que dizia tudo com o seu olhar *O*), Dam Si (tiozão gato! Sorriso maravilhoso) e o Abe (muito fofinho *-*). Das personagens femininas curti muito a Lala, torci sempre pela felicidade dela. O Shinji me dava pena no começo mas ele me irritava tanto as vezes que dava vontade de matar e a Mon Dan era muito lesada, pelamor!!
Quanto ao final teve coisas que gostei e que não gostei o que foi bom:

1- Apesar dessa menina ser uma songa monga, não queria que a Boon Yi tivesse morrido T.T , meu bebê (Kang To) ficou sozinhoooo, muito injustiça isso D:
2- Eu odiei o Shinji o dorama inteiroooo, cara maior stalker, devia tomar um semancol dos bons pra aprender mas no fim tive pena dele, o cara perdeu tudo e ainda morreu sabendo que matou a unica mulher que amou... isso foi bem triste.
3- Queria MUITO que a Lala tivesse aceitado o amor do Katsuyama, eu ADOREI ele. Alias fiquei com maior dó dele, poxa =( Mas acabei ficando feliz pelos dois terem escapado vivos... eu as vezes, curtia mais os dois do que o casal principal xD.
4- Achei meio chato que não ficou explicito se a Coreia conseguiu sua independência depois daquele movimento ou não... foi muito bonito mas pouco esclarecedor.
5- o Abe era tão fofinho *-* queria que ele tivesse mudado de lado no fim.

not bad, but if it was shorter or had better developed side stories it would have been A LOT better.

This drama should be called "The Last Survivor" or something like that.
Amazing actors, excellent story, great scenario, awesome soundtrack, in a few words, perfect.
The only thing that bothers me is that the female leads were very weak, especially Jin Se Yeon. She didn't had any chemistry with Joo Won, and she was quite annoying to look at.
