  1. I’m just wasting my time to watch this drama…Every night after my work I check every other episodes come in..Even the drama us having great scenes still useless because their efforts is definitely in vain.. Although they died as hero for their contribution for their own country, so what this is just drama what’s the problem if just to give happy ending to the Female & male Lead???
    Do they need to die?? I really hate this drama , it’s really spoiled my mood these days!.. I regreted to watch this, my time is wasted !..

  2. My bad, hw I wish I couldn’t watched this movie, i love it from the beginning but I didn’t expect them to die at the end, then why must they promise each other to bear a child after every war ends
    It a tragedy I waste so much of my time on it
    Thinking the ending is gonna be smooth.

  3. After clinging on to female heroines in these dramas .. why can’t they have a happy ending. As much butt whooping & bleeding they do throughout the movie .. a happy ending not much to ask for.
