I like it, the production value is all over the place though. E1 was movie-ish. Then E2 looked like they were on a soundstage.

I guess you could call that stylized. There's a real incongruity between 1 and 2. I wonder if they spent a bunch of money on a pilot to sell the show.

It's good though, just something I noticed. It was slightly jarring.

watched only a few minutes, production is on par or besting Historical Kdrams or Saeguks, looks like it's from the Joseon period.

They spent around 1.2 million per episode.

About halfway through the first episode and I am not familiar with midevil Korean power structures. That being said the Queen and this Chief Counselor wield a lot of power. This clearly seems like a coup 30minutes in. Normally a Crown Prince would be head of state when the King is ill yet you have guards threatening him and the Queen. Seems odd.

Edit: 10 minutes later he admits it's true. So the suspicions were justified despite their horseshit.

Eps 3 so far, damn this is like 100% different than any korean dramas, take my word for it, you'll never be able to sit through an k-drama series.
