I just had to add The Nokdu Flower to my watch list. The cast line is so stellar I cannot miss the opportunity of not picking up this epic sageuk drama. Why do I say epic? It is directed by Six Flying Dragons‘ director. I am a big fan of Yoon Shi Yoon but not a huge fan of Jo Jung Suk. But I am fully aware how talented Jung Suk is and I believe this is his first period drama – correct me if I am wrong coz I am too lazy to dig into his bio at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, though. Just because I am not a fan it does not mean I won’t watch it. I always go for the story regardless of the actors.
I have not been watching sageuk dramas for months and I purposely saving it for the best! For my Yoo Seung Ho *wink*. And the wait is worth my time! I am enjoying this drama from the beginning until now. I have been on top of it and seriously, I just can’t get enough of it. I do notice a few people dropping this show because they found it frustrating, tiresome and disappointing. Putting my bias aside, I just can’t find Ruler to be tiresome and disappointing. Frustrating? Perhaps. I would blame the writer for going around in circles. Also, it rocks people’s interest differently.
