Based on the life of
a true historical figure, Emperor of the Sea is an
epic Korean Drama based on a novel by author Choi In Ho.
Jang Bo Go rises
from a lowly slave to the military commander of the sea
during the Unified Shilla Dynasty (676~935). Along the
way, he battles pirates, and engages in a heated rivalry
with Madam Jami, a Shilla noble who squares off against
Jang Bo Go for trade rights in the South Sea.
Yeomjang is Jang Bo Go's charismatic comrade, who supports
Jang in his ascension to The Emperor of the Sea.
Very Good -
This is a drama that has great balance between action
and storyline - along with spectacular sets and costumes.
It's not rated excellent only because of the casting -
Choi Soo Jong doesn't seem to be the best choice for Jang
