understanding history through TV

In controversy with China over Goguryeo, Korean TVs have spearheaded a campaign for understanding the Goguryeo history. (see “big-budget historical dramas popular”)
Although I was aware of "Jumong", a founder of Goguryeo, through the myth, this TV drama mae me more interested in Goguryeo history. As a person who believe in TV power, I believe that those TV dramas will bring about more interests and curiosities abour korean history to the viewers. Yet, I also think that more attention is not sufficient to understand historical controversy since those viewers could devlelop biased and distorted knowledge.
