TV Review: Arthdal Chronicles (2019) (Fantasy)

Arthdal Chronicles (아스달 연대기)
18 episodes
Song Joong-ki, Jang Dong-gun

In a mythical land called Arth, the inhabitants of the ancient city of Arthdal and its surrounding regions vie for power as they build a new society. (Synopsis)

It took me a couple of episodes to get into Arthdal Chronicles, but then I was hooked. The world building is nicely handled. The characters, once you get your head around all of them and their roles/positions, are interesting and well developed throughout and the pacing was generally good despite it being a long series (18 x 80 min episodes). I was definitely engaged until the end and I am giving it 4.5 stars. Recommended for those who like high fantasy that also nods at real history along the way.
