Every frame is perfect
6 August 2018 | by malucitabSee all my reviews

This is the most beautifully done series I've ever seen. Each frame of each shot was like a painting. The story is your typical historical k drama but because the cinematography is so on point it becomes like a beautiful story book. It's worth binge watching over and over again.
