Likes: Great story! Never one boring episode for me and I’m talking about all 24!
I always like period drama especially good ones and Gu Family Book belongs to that category. The story is rich!
Great cast! Plenty of really good actors here. I specially love the villain, Lee Sung Jae. I mean hands down, he was just great! Another one of my favorite is Choi Jin Hyuk aka Wol Ryung, father of KangChi. He was hot especially when he turned evil! Hm, I seem to like the bad ones :).
The dialogues were just sooo good especially between the Admiral and Lord Bi Jo! These 2 were always fun to watch.
I like the love story of Kang Chi and Yeo Wool but I think I was truly moved by the bittersweet love story of Kang Chi’s parents! Tragically good!
I’m happy to see Lee Seung Ki paired with someone younger. Finally!
Dislikes: Not sure of Bae Suzy. Somehow her acting wasn’t too period. Was it the accent?
The epilogue, hm. I like how it ended but somehow it was rushed. I was so spoiled with how they put details on the period scenes.
This drama made it to top 10 in 2013. Watch video…
