What would you do if the mere fact of your birth gives you no standing in society? Hong Gil Dong (Yoon Kyun-sang) is the son of servant Hong Ah Mo Gae, which gives Gil Dong no legal standing in Joseon society. With no opportunities to do any legitimate work despite his brilliance, Gil Dong becomes the leader of a band of smugglers who steals from the rich to give to the poor. Gil Dong's contemporary, Yi Yung, becomes the tyrannical King Yeonsangun (Kim Ji-suk) who oppresses the lives of the common people. Gil Dong saves the life of Song Ga Ryeong (Chae Soo-bin), who becomes a young widow after her husband is killed by the king. Ga Ryeong dreams of getting revenge against the king at all costs. The king’s faithful consort is Jang Nok Soo (Lee Ha-nui), who secretly can’t forget her first love, Gil Dong. Can Gil Dong champion the rights of the common people on his path to becoming Joseon’s first revolutionary activist?
I'm so impressed with the story line. Gil Dong is known as the strongest man in Joseon, who can't easily die even he's covered with blood. I recommended this drama to all of you to watch. This drama is so interesting and inspiring. It shows how brave they are in protecting their nation. This is my first favourite historical korean drama.
