Review: Deep Rooted Tree 2011 (Kdrama)

I will forever reblog a good review of The Tree With Deep Roots

☯ ÐℝA♏A GATE ☓ (>‿ ◠)✌


Deep Rooted Tree, or aka Tree with Deep Roots is a television series based on the novel of the same title by Lee Jeong-myeong. It’s set in the Kingdom of Great Joseon during the reign of King Taejong (1367 –1422) and Sejong the Great (1397 – 1450, r. 1418–1450). The title of the drama “Deep Rooted Tree” took it’s name from a poem.  Or rather a song from the Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven (Yongbieocheonga).

When Sejong’s scholars are murdered, Chae Yoon becomes a part of the investigation but soon finds himself embroiled in a bigger conspiracy.

The drama does take licenses with the history so I’m just going to mention some basic broad strokes.  A series of murders did happen right before the official release of the hangul alphabet.  It’s uncertain that these two events were directly tied with each other.  Aristocrats very much opposed the hangul alphabet.  Because of the discovery of the Hunmin Jeong-eum Haerye…

A Tree With Deep Root (2011) – Jang Hyuk Outfits.

I love Ahjussi Fan’s random posts! This one is about Ddolbock/Chaeyoon’s outfits 😉 boy did I love the Joseon era Palace Guard and his colorful outfits on The Tree with Deep Roots! 😍

Ahjussi Fan

This is totally random but I just can’t skip posting this. *The outfits were super simple*

*Photos not mine, taken from internet. C. as tagged*

He was dressed like this 85% of the drama.

5% without the hat

7% in black outfit (with and without the hat).My favorite. 😀

2.xxxx% in white outfit.

And regrettably 0.0000001% like this.

Actually there is one or two more outfit that I left out. The outfits he wore in the battlefield at North. Doesn’t look that pretty anyway 😛


I take back my word. This is hot! *Photo thanks to Gumi*

p/s: I just finished A Tree With Deep Root yesterday and loving everything in it except the ENDING! Well, I totally agree with the general one but could not accept several of my fav characters ending *It was so unfair and so sad. I end up with a soaked pillow and blanket. Dang!*.
