great drama. i hate the ending >< whoever didnt watch this please go see it!! will update more Based on the life of a true historical figure, Emperor of the Sea is an epic Korean Drama based on a novel by author Choi In Ho. Choi Soo Jong stars as Jang Bo Go, who rises from a lowly slave to the military commander of the sea during the Unified Shilla Dynasty (676~935). Along the way, he battles pirates, and engages in a heated rivalry with Madam Jami (Chae Si Ra), a Shilla noble who squares off against Jang Bo Go for trade rights in the South Sea. Song Il Gook, winner of the 2002 KBS New Actor award, is Yeomjang, Jang Bo Go's charismatic comrade, who supports Jang in his ascension to The Emperor of the Sea. But Yeomjang competes with Jang for the love of Jeong-hwa (Soo-ae)... 'Emperor of the Sea' is 50-episode HD drama based on the Choi In-ho's novel of the same title. The drama depicts the life of Jang Bo-go (?~846), who dominated the sea of the East Asia and international trade during the Unified Shilla Dynasty (676~935). Jang Bo-go also eliminated pirates by installing Cheong-Hae-Jin on Wando, which is a geographically important sea route. Likewise he erected the order of the marine trade in East Asia from Dang(China) and Japan to the North China sea. Drama 'Emperor of the Sea' will show historical figure Jang Bo-go's growth, the emerging as Emperor of the Sea and love, and add artificial figures madam Jami and Jeong-hwa to add more spices. Choi Soo-jong, who has shown impressive performance in historical drama 'King Wang-geon,' will play as Jang Bo-go. Chae Si-ra will play as Madam Jami, who is a noble of Shilla and fights for the trade right in the South Sea against Jang Bo-go. Song Il-gook will play the role of Yeom-jang, who is a comrade of Jang Bo-go and competes to win love from the same woman against Jang. Song Il-gook has shown good performance in recently concluded weekend drama 'Terms of Endearment.' Many new faces are cast in the drama too. Jang-hwa who falls in love of destiny with Jang Bo-go will be performed by Soo-ae. The last son Kim Heung-soo of 'More Beautiful than Flowers' will perform as the confidant of Jang Bo-go. Since 15 billion won will be spent for the production, there will be lots to catch eyes. Visitors' house, market place, the Shilla office in Dang, ports were built as sets, not to mention Cheong-Hae-Jin in Wando, Jeonnam, home to Jang Bo-go. For two months from August, overseas shooting in Shanghai and desert area Dunhwhang in China is planned. photo4313.jpgphoto4315.jpg - Choi Soo-jong (최수종) photo4317.jpg - Chae Si-ra (채시라) photo4314.jpg - Lee Won-jong (이원종) photo4326.jpg - Song Il-gook (송일국) photo4322.jpg - Chae Jung Ahn 0126_haesin_t.jpg - Kim Heung-soo (김흥수) photo4312.jpg - Soo-ae (수애) Cast: Jang Bogo, aka Goong-bok (Korean gladiator): --as a teen: Bae Sung Hyun (Stairway to Heaven/Damo) --as an adult: Choi Soo Jung (On the Prairie) Madam Jami: Chae Si Ra (Conditions of Love) Yeom Moon: --as a teen: Hong Hyun Ki --as an adult: Song Il Kook (Conditions of Love/Bodyguard) Jung-hwa: --as a teen: Lee Yeon Hee (My Precious Child) --as an adult: Soo Ae (Lover Letter) Jung Yon (Goong-bok's buddy): --as a teen: Ahn Jae Hong --as an adult: Kim Heung Soo (More Beautiful Than a Flower) Choi Moo-chang (blacksmith slave): Lee Won Jong (Bodyguard) Sul Pyong (merchant): Park Young Gyu (Damo/Paper Crane) Yi Do-hyung (merchant): Kim Gap Soo (Age of Warriors) Jo Jang-gil (wine merchant): Lee Jae Yong (5th Republic) Lady Chae-ryung (Sul Pyong's daughter): Chae Jung Ahn (On the Prairie) Yi Soon-jong (Goong-bok & Yon's childhood friend): --as a teen: Huh In Bum --as an adult: Jo Dal Hwan Chang-kyum (Jung-hwa's brother): Jung Sung Hwan (Romance) Yi Mak-bong: (Soon-jong's dad): Lee Hee Do (Glass Slippers) Joong-dal (Goong-bok's enemy): Kang Sung Pil Jang Dae-chi (one of Master Yi's chiefs): Jung Ho Geun (Damo/Trio) Neung-chang (Madam Jami's right hand man): Park Jung Hak __ Tae-bong (Madam Jami's security officer with curled bangs): Kim Hyung Bum (Romance in Paris/Hearts in Bali) Da-bok: --as a teen: Lee Eun Hye --as an adult: Go Do Young Jang Bogo's dad: Park In Hwan (Tell Me You Love Me) __ Ha-jin (Lady Chae-ryung's security escort): Kim Ah Jung __ (Master Sul's chief): Kim Hyo Won Jang Sung-pil (security officer bribed by Madam Jami's group): Do Ki Suk __ Pan-sool (one of Master Yi's men): Go Myung Hwan (Romance) Kim Woo-jing (former regent): Kil Yong Woo (Golden Era/Cool) Han Man-joong (Chinese merchant): __ __ Moo-jin (Jung-hwa's bodyguard): Suh Do Young Kim Yang: Bae Soo Bin http://www.kbs.co.kr/drama/jangbogo/synop/cast/cast.html/ more of the cast members

I just bought the box set since my dad wanted to watch it too...

Myself, I saw it awhile back, it's good :lol: and I agree the ending is not that great...and some of the wirework in the fighting scenes were a little awkward I'd have to say ><

This is an excellent drama. The storyline is very interesting and touching. I really enjoy every scene of it except the ending. Although it is a long one but the plots are very well-done, no dragging at all. Great actors and actresses, very beautiful soundtrack and scenery, highly recommended.

50 Episodes :S holy crap... this drama on AZN Television is going to take forever. They should show 2 episodes everyday lol. Episode 4 in the afternoon and Episode 5 in the evening and so on.

Instead of taking 50 days (10 weeks like almost 3 months) it would take 1 and a half months lol.
