Editorial Reviews

The story of a beautiful queen, who has to give up her love to save the people. With historical battle scenes and a star-studded cast, Queen Seondeok of Silla is the follow-up historical drama to MBC's "Lee San: Wind of the Palace" and "Prince of Legend" for 2009! Writer Kim Young-hyun of the famous "Jewel in the Palace" will be the main writer of this new TV mini-series. A biopic of Queen Seondeok, who was born a princess and later became the ruler of Silla, leaving behind many brilliant achievements. During the Three Kingdoms period of Korea... Deokman (Queen Seondeok's childhood name) was born a twin but was abandoned as a baby. She was later brought back to the Silla palace, where she joined forces with her twin sister Princess Chonmyong to oppose Mi-shil, who wanted to seize power. Mi-shil devised sinister plans to have the two Silla princesses exiled from the kingdom, and in a secretive battle, Princess Chonmyong was assassinated by Mi-shil. But Princess Deokman shrewdly enlisted the help of General Kim Yusin and eliminated her archenemy Mi-shil. She became the first female ruler of the Silla kingdom.

At first I was lukewarm about this series. I enjoyed Princess Ju Myung better. But as Vol. 1 was a gift, I watched it all the way through. It did get better and better. But Vol 2 introduced a new character, Bidam, who brought an entire new dimension to this series. He was funny, complex, sexy, and altogether fascinating. He was wicked and yet evoked sympathy and compassion - all in all a riveting character who "owned" the series. Interestingly, this bears out as the series started with a 16% viewership on TV in Korea, rocketed to 62%, and made Bidam a star. The addition of this particular actor and his accompanying story increased the tension, and largely due to it, the entire storyline got better and better as anticipation of what was going to happen to Bidam and the Queen increased. I can see why this was one of the most popular series in Korean history.

For the best audio and video quality with the original broadcast English subtitles, look for 'Studio: MBC America' under Product Details. MBC America is the licensed US distributor for The Great Queen Seondeok. MBC America works from the original MBC-TV master recordings and hires professional translators for the broadcast subtitles, which are also used for the DVD release. Each episode runs about 60 minutes. Volume 1 contains Episodes 1-20; Volume 2 contains Episodes 21-43; Volume 3, Episodes 44-62. On a personal note, I've subtitled many Korean programs but Queen Seondeok is my favorite historical drama. Fans of romance, action and intrigue will not be disappointed.

D. Bannon was the subtitler for the MBC America broadcast and DVD releases of The Great Queen Seondeok Vol. 1, The Great Queen Seondeok Vol. 2 and Great Queen Seondeok 3 (7pc) (Sub Box). He discusses subtitling Queen Seondeok in The Elements of Subtitles: A Practical Guide to the Art of Dialogue, Character, Context, Tone and Style in Subtitling.

I got number one and then had to wait for two and three. I thought it was well done. My favorite historical kdrama after Sungunkwon Scandal. Mishill is one nasty 'bad guy.'
We had fun with this and now other members of the family are hooked. The costumes are great as is the music and the historical insight.

It's very bad.
Only the delivery was good but all the rests were quite bad.
Disc-2 and Disc-4 cannot be played back caused by errors.
Other Discs have also small erros by which a short period
video freezing happens.
One more thing should be noted that I bought Vol.2
and enjoyed its error free condition and good video
quality but at Vol.III each Disc contains 5 episodes
consequently the quality is bad, whilst at Vol.2
each Disc contains 3 episodes and provides good video
quality.

Seller, Please refund.
