Hi,
I’ve have watched the Arthdal Chronical to the end of episode 18.. no doubt it is an interesting epic drama- however I am disappointed on the ending of the drama and how they breaks to 3 parts (each part only 6 episode).
Would there be any proceeding continuation of the sequence? If so, I hope they will release 18 episodes straight in each season instead of breaking them to 3 parts.
