Waay overrated

Well, just before I say anything else - the hype didn't live up to itself.

The art is great in this manga, but that's about it.

The characters do not leave a feeling of depth, their actions are more likely to leave you with an impression that the character behavior is defined by authors whim and not by the character’s way of thinking. Seen at its best in the Hwelbindang arc
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when the leader Hong Gildong announces that the city besieged, when taken, shall be burned to the ground, but then few chapters latter in the flashbacks we see a kind hearted Hong Gildong who is shocked that a person is killed without her orders. Seems that there is just a small step from a good natured thief to a genocidal maniac.
And this is not the only example were storytelling seems to go in heavy contradictions to already or later established facts. Ondal and Pyeonggang arc would be just another fine example where as it seems parts of the arc are being being shown happenening
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
while in reality they have not even happened in the imagination of the schizophreniac princess.

It feels that the author of the manga portrayed these events in the particular way not to tell a story of a princess teared apart in her cage but to fool the reader with artificial drama or make the reader feel in a certain way about events that have already been established by sawing together events don't do not stick together or feel obviously out of place.

Ok so the story telling and characters are contradictory, but what about their development it is an epos right? As it has been noted before the character development doesn't deserve any mention... AT ALL. I feel sorry for having to even write this. We have main heroes like Sando and Bang Ja who come into the story fairly blank and walk out blank again. According to a number of reviewers this is an epic story. In an epic story a character shouldn't be a blank page when it leaves the story, but they do. The a/m (Sando and Bang Ja) main characters have bleak (if any) back stories, they rarely get any show time and their actions are episodic, but in the end
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when the main hero pleads to Sando come to her senses
we are supposed to feel for their relationship and understand how deep their bond is. But there is just one problem, through the whole story they have at most had a paragraph of conversations, Sando is always keeping a distance thus it is not clear when the supposed bond was born between Sando and Munsu.

And again this is just an example. There are other characters with as pathetic character development. Like all the underlings of Munsu that fought with him with the monsters in the great battle while he was ageneral. Their characters experience a complete 180 degree turn at least more then two times in the whole story, and for the first switch (when they joined Aji Tae) there is completely no explanation, then for the second one it is so bleak that I think the author should have left it out completely
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
they get beaten and die.
Everything what these former comrades say contradicts to what they did before joining Aji Tae, and it can’t even be explained by their fear from Aji Tae, as in the end they still switch sides without any logical reason.

The ending of course is clichéd and IMO no spoilers could ever spoil you the story considering that it is completely like any other story of this type.
If you are looking for an epic story about war with deep characters better take Threads of Time or Berserk this story's characters are mediocre at best.

Initially I did wish to give this manga a 6, as I considered it to be a mediocre piece but ok to read, but as I hate the hype about this manga, I gave it 1 simply because I do not think it deserves such high rating and a 6 wouldn’t bring the stats down.

I read this when my reading list was only 50 series long. 300 series later, I still thought it was the very best (as in the best out of all that I have read). If anything, make time for this piece. No, just drop everything else to start this one if you have no time. Its GODLIKE

To be honest, I don´t really get why this Manhwa has such a high ratings. Sure, it had a decent plot and nice characters, but I just couldn´t get myself to like it wholeheartedly. Why? well, I will try to explain that as much as I can.

Basically, I considerd this to be a lighter version of the manga Berserk, but unlike Berserk it became boring after 10-20 chapters or so. Don´t get me wrong, this Manhwa was good, but lacking in many areas. For example, some of the characters was not developt enough and they could easily fade away from the memory. Sando was one of them, she was one of the main characters but I could still not really remember her after she joined the Aji tae team. I didn´t feel like it was something missing, and that proves that Sando was not fully developt.

Now to the Spoilers:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
*Sigh*....Munsu. I really liked him, I really did. Until the authors decided to put a woman in his life and make him a love-struck man. Sacrifice your health and take over her sickness....I mean...Really? That´s too much Shounen for me to handle, and this is considerd to be a Seinen manga. I just couldn´t stand this whole romance thing going on either, it felt so incredibly cliché that I didn´t....know what to think.

The endning was good though, so you don´t have to worry about that.

Either way, this manhwa may be considerd as...pretty dark by some people, but It could´ve easily passed for a more darker Shounen, because there wasn´t that much of a explict or gore content in it ( In my opinion ).

I´m giving this a 6 because I felt it was incomplete, I also felt that it had many plotholes that could´ve maid this Manhwa even better if covered. I don´t know if there was some problem with the sales of this manhwa or something, but the ending felt a bit rushed ( Although it was pretty good ).

i loved it. i didn't know why i didn't read this before. it was on my reading list for a couple of months now and i just picked it up two days ago....

i love it so much, the stories, the characters, the setting. the never ending twists. it was a giant roller coaster for me. the end was so bittersweet. i'm glad that it ended that way but it was still bittersweet.

this is definitely one of my most favorite manhwa out there. Munsu is a great great character. i'm so glad to have read this

I just through the whole series in a manner of days (yes I'm crazy..) and I gotta say, I was hooked. It was thoroughly entertaining throughout. A very tragic story with twists and turns here and there. Munsu was a great main character. Originally this series reminded me of Berserk but it turned out different. I loved the ending chapters and the epic battle.

The main issue I had was with Sando. I wish we knew more about who she was and where she came from. Even if she was one of the main characters I wish we had more development and focus on her. Still don't understand her outfit, either bigrazz

Incredible piece of work. This isn't your average manga where the good always wins. The seriousness and maturity put into the plot have given readers a new kind of thrill. Only those who are mature and are ready to experience the feeling of intense carnage and tragedy should read this.

A must read! Great characters. Great story and some real good charcters... Wish i had the strength to write a good review but not needed... all you need to know that this is one of the greatest out there...
What i love about the Manhwa that ive read about so far (this and The breaker) is that these Korean guys dont play around.
Serious, heavy, stuff with humor on the side. Not shit load of Slapstick and corny dumb characters! Then again i've only read a few Manhwa so far but boot been 10/10

Fantastic tragic manga, however there really is a lot of heart wrenching moments. I find myself raging a lot when reading this manga, so while I can recognize the good work put into it, its not something I can enjoy in any peaceful way.

Amazing manhwa, definately one of the better ones out there....
I usually don't read tragedy, but after the first few chapters i got hooked on the storyline, artwork is pretty good as well and I HIGHLY recommend giving this a try, even if you aren't a fan of tragedy.
