YesAsia Editorial Description

Throw away any preconceptions you may have about Korean period dramas 'cause imagination runs wild in KBS's outrageous new drama Hong Gil Dong! Touted as Korea's first ever small-screen fusion period comedy, this quintessential drama puts a major comical spin on one of the most notorious fictional characters in Korean history - Hong Gil Dong, Korea's own Robin Hood. Kang Ji Hwan (Capital Scandal) stars as Hong Gil Dong opposite Sung Yu Ri (The Snow Queen) who plays his romantic counterpart. Jam-packed with hours and hours of spectacular martial arts scenes and wire action combined with witty, funny episodes, the drama breaks through the stereotypes of its genre, meshing in modern day culture into the plot. (Look for Hong Gil Dong's perm hairdo and cool sunglasses, and also disco lights and techo music setting up the mood in a geisha brothel.) Moreover, the drama features plenty of outrageous parodies and an unusual parade of characters from famous Korean folk tales like Sim Chung and Choon Hyang.

Born the illegitimate child of a nobleman, Gil Dong (Kang Ji Hwan) was bullied and ostracized throughout his childhood. Always in deep resentment, Gil Dong grows up to be the town's menace, wreaking havoc everywhere he goes. But with the help of a monk who sees more in Gil Dong, the once lowlife troublemaker transforms into a man of greatness fighting against social injustice by stealing from the wealthy and distributing to the poor. Meanwhile, Chang Hui (Jang Geun Suk) who was betrayed by his own brother, the current King of Joseon, carefully plans to take over the throne. While heading back to Joseon from China, he runs into Yi Nok (Sung Yu Ri), and later develop feelings for her. Young and carefree, Yi Nok, who was raised by her grandfather in China, befriends Gil Dong and Chang Hui. Both Yi Nok and Gil Dong help Chang Hui to see the light in what makes a true king.

Entertaining Dramedy! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I love Hong Gil Dong! This is a really fun "fusion saguek." For those of you who hate the word "fusion"
used to describe anything, this is a historical drama with a modern twist (music, slang, attitude) mixed
with some fantasy.

Kang Ji Hwan is wonderful as Hong Gil Dong, the reluctant and unwitting hero. He plays the tough but vulnerable character beautifully. His transformation (from selfish jerk to selfless hero) as the story unfolds
is k-drama magic.

Sung Yuri is adorable as Heo Yinok. She's cute and quirky but more importantly, her sweet, innocent,
steadfast love and devotion for Hong Gil Dong make him the man he's meant to be. I've seen her in other dramas but she really nails this character with an honesty that is charming and emotional.

It starts out with an over the top comic book style vibe that can be off putting but it levels out nicely into
a historical drama/comedy that is full of interesting, likeable characters and beautifully absurd laugh out
loud moments.

I really want to give the drama 9 (of 10) stars because I felt it deserved a better ending and it was unable
to maintain the "magic" to the very end.

Nice movie Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I loved the twist of this drama. Love the romance and the acting of Sung Yu Ri. She played the dumb love struck up to the end. Truly amazing, she should do a lot of this again.

I just feel sad for the ending. The Prince although i understand his concern still did not keep his promise and ended up fighting the people who help him from the start.
