Synopsis: [Taken from wiki.d.addicts.com]
Based on Lee Jung Myung's novel “Tree With Deep Roots”. Work that highlights the serial killings during the 7 days before the announcement of the Korean script.A series of murder occurred during the reign of King Sejong. As Kang Chae Yoon who is investigating these cases gets closer to the root of the truth, he finds himself embroiled in a massive conspiracy behind the serial killings which involves a group of genius who are willing to risked their lives towards their cause/goals and secret powers who will interfere with the course of his investigations.
What I have to say:
Whoa. That's all I have to say. WHOA. Seriously, this is a good drama. Incredibly intense and addictive! Be ready to constantly finish one episode crying for more. A lot of times I'd watch this and just have to watch at least the first 10 minutes of the episode that came next to see what would happen. To go to bed at a somewhat reasonable time, I'd have to really force myself to actually stop that next episode after 10 minutes or so. If you don't have that discipline, be ready to just watch hours upon hours of this drama because it is that good. Especially if you like the historical dramas with lots of conspiracy. If there's any truth to the novel this drama is based on, then I am even more impressed with Korea's written language (hangeul). Go King SeJong!

Soju (1) | It had me coming back for more, but left me with a hangover. Worth it in the moment, but slight regret the next day.
Kimbap (2) | It moved well and often left me wondering what would happen in the next episode, but it wasn't as fulfilling as it had the potential to be.
Bibimbap (3) | I lost a lot of sleep because they knew how to end each episode with a cliffhanger! Lots of harmonious ingredients making this one a win!
Fanatic (4) | An amazing drama that was very well told and nearly every single episode ended with a major cliffhanger making you scream for more! I'm an absolute fan!
(I only put on here the dramas I actually recommend because I think it's really good. Even a soju rating means it was good and satisfying. A fanatic rating just means it blew me away and was near perfection. There are many dramas I've seen that I don't have on my recommendation list.)
