Episode #1.15 - S1-E15

Factual error: Joseph is given an American military funeral. The coffin, when placed in the ground, is shown with an American flag placed on top of it. Eugene sprinkles some soil over the coffin (with the flag on top of it), however burial flags are always removed prior to the actual burial, folded and then handed to the next of kin, so the soil he sprinkled would not be included in the actual burial. (00:29:10)

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Factual error: The American flag shown waving outside the White House is the current present-day flag with 50 stars. From 1896 to 1908, (the time period that this show is set in) the US flag only had 45 stars as Oklahoma, New Mexico, Nebraska, Alaska and Hawaii were not recognised as states in that time period. The flag did not have 50 stars until 1960. (00:04:30)

Episode #1.20 - S1-E20

Plot hole: After Ae-sin shoots Wan-ik and flees, Hina shoots Dr. Matsuyama with a six-shooter and plants the gun in his hand to make it appear as if he shot both Wan-ik and himself in a murder-suicide. However, Ae-sin shot Wan-ik with a rifle, meaning the bullets that were used to shoot Wan-ik and the bullet that was used to shoot the doctor were completely different bullets; the authorities would realise this when an autopsy on the two is performed. (00:26:10)

Episode #1.1 - S1-E1

Factual error: In the flashback that shows the fate of Ae-sin's parents whilst Ae-sin is a baby, several characters can be seen using a Mauser C96 pistol. These include the father when he tries to shoot Wan-ik, the mother when the soldiers come for her, and the man standing beside Wan-ik who shoots the father. The flashback takes place over 20 years before the main story takes place, which would have set it in the 1870s, but the Mauser C96 pistol was not first designed until 1895. (00:56:10 - 00:58:03)
