1. “Six Flying Dragons” at http://campusconnection.blogspot.com/2016/06/six-flying-dragons-synopsis-by-episode.html (spoiler-free synopsis by episode)

Broadcast in Korea from October 2015 to April 2016 with videos available on the Internet; it’s a huge hit among fans and critics in Korea and among Internet viewers.

GMA7 or ABS-CBN will surely be interested in broadcasting this 50-episode drama about the political and ideological conflicts between Jeong Do-jeon (architect of the Joseon dynasty) and Lee Bang-won (3rd King of Joseon).

For action fans, there are lots of terrific sword fighting scenes (see for example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1cmuk8NRbc). For romance fans, there’s the love story between Bang-won and Boon-yi. And there are lots of political intrigues.
