I really enjoyed reading the above, I think you really have summed up this series so well. I have sometimes felt that the makjang genre is just an excuse for sloppy, lazy, even poorly researched writing, a commercially driven, maximise the viewer numbers product. I was getting frustrated with some aspects of this drama, because the cast is so very good, and I felt it was spiralling into the stupid, expedient realm. But through the lens you suggest it seems better, basically just entertaining.

Fingers crossed about Choi do-il, he might just be too good to believe, I really hope not, he's a great, charming hero.
