Arthdal Chronicles (2019)
I thought I could gain power, defeat them, save my people, and eventually protect all of them! But my people don’t know what a subordinate is because we all think we’re equal. And because of that, I don’t know how to make someone my subordinate. That’s why I kept being nice to you. But I guess it wasn’t the right way. – Eun-seom
Arthdal Chronicles Synopsis : In a mythical land called Arth, the inhabitants of the ancient city of Arthdal contend with power struggles, while some encounter love along the way. Eun-seom goes through hardships to bring his tribe back to life and learns of his true origins in the process. (Source : Wikipedia)

ARTHDAL CHRONICLES PART 1: THE CHILDREN OF PROPHECY
- This drama has such a strong and impactful start.
- The acting is phenomenal and the characters are really interesting.
- All in all, it’s a good watch.
ARTHDAL CHRONICLES PART 2 : THE SKY TURNING INSIDE OUT, RISING LAND
- The second part is very well crafted and far better than the first part.
- Song Joong Ki steals the show. The way he portrays Saya and Eunseom both very different characters, he is absolutely amazing.
- It has a lot of twist and turns and the story is unpredictable.
