    1. The plot is really interesting, and I love that it's based off actual Korean history (and myth) from the 1st century.However, it is unnecessarily hard to follow. I had to constantly turn back to the character guide and royal family tree in the front (so glad that's there!), but sometimes the story wouldn't even name the character speaking. What I really liked is that there's a brief summary of the history in the back, along with a timeline comparing Korean events to European events. For example, [...]

    2. This one is kind of hard to follow. The story opens very chaotically and while supernatural battles are going on flashbacks are taking place which kind of introduce you to the characters. At times the art is a little annoying and looks a little 80s, but at other times it's very beautiful.

    3. I feel like I'd appreciate this a lot more if I had any understanding of Korean history and mythology. Unfortunately I don't, so this is one more thing that goes in the pile of potentially interesting things for me to read more about later.

    4. Art is OK, story's OK, but the storytelling is quite terrible! Very confusing at times, and the fact that the characters keep changing appearance (hair color and such) is kind of annoying.
