The drama tells the story of two men who were switched at birth. A twist of fate results in Chun Doong, who is of noble birth, living his life as a slave and later becoming a heroic outlaw, while Gwi Dong was born as a beggar but lives Chun Dong's life as a nobleman, growing up to become a police chief. They both fall in love with the same girl, Dong Nyeo
What happens when you are switched in infancy?
Gwi Dong and Chun Doong were two babies switched during infancy by a desperate mother. A period action/melodrama which revolved around the different lives these two children ended up living. The story line bared similarities with other action period pieces such as Hong Gil Dong and Strongest Chil Woo. The solid acting delivered by all cast members made this an enjoyable drama to watch, albeit the slow story development. The rich settings and the occassional breathtaking scenery contributed into making this an easy drama to watch. However at 32 episodes, I'm not too sure if the marathon was worth it. Some of the side stories and scenes could be cut to create a faster paced storyline. Curiosity will keep you glued to the very last episode, where the resolution was typical and decidely unoriginal.
