Mesmerizing and a bit confusing first episode. There are a lot of new characters and story-lines being introduced at once and I finished the episode without being sure of who was who on some cases. The cinematography is extraordinary and the historic setting in the ending of 19 century in Korea (Joseon) is very interesting. But I find the story-telling to be slow at times and overly dramatic. This is something that a western viewer may have to have in consideration when starting to watch a series like this. There are moments in which you may think that you're watching a very well produced soap opera.
