  1. I think I’m probably going to check out “When It’s at Night.” I’m getting kinda sick of historical dramas personally… Other than the big ones like “Dae Jang Geum” or “Joomong,” I don’t really watch them anymore so I don’t really know about “Strongest Chil Woo.”

  2. “Strongest Chil Woo” is being compared to “Iljimae”, while it is being compared to “Hong Gil Dong”, lol. Please do not let there be a forth one. 1 is enough for me.
