One of the longest Korean dramas I have watched is the one where Joo Won was there. Bridal Mask or Gaksital was a story of a man named Lee Kang-to, a Korean police officer commissioned by the Japanese Police to betray his own country and aid the Japanese in the annihilation of the Korean rebellion. During his mission, he encounters a notorious masked man who dons a traditional Korean bridal mask to fight for Korea's independence by assassinating Japanese key officers. As the detective's hunt for "Gaksital" ("Bridal Mask") unravels, his eyes are slowly opened to the treacherous deeds he has committed towards his own countrymen.
I actually like how Joo Won acted on Baker King and I find him handsome so I tried this series of him where he is the lead actor. Again, by my sister's suggestion, I got to know Gaksital. I love the story. All the actors were really amazing. I've heard that this is where Joo Won got his big break in acting. You should watch this. I highly recommend it! ♥
All of these links are subbed in English. Since the story is an old Josean era, you might get bored about politics and history but I think it's an eye-opener to people who are watching to love their country even more. Heavy drama on Episode 6 and 7. Oh! I just can't really get enough of Joo Won here. Such a good actor. His face tells it all!
Hope you'll enjoy this. More of dramas and series soon! Xoxo ♥
