Some of you who know me outside of reading books, know that I am obsessed with Korean dramas. I decided to post about them once in a while just to keep my love for blogging going. I'll be sporadically posting about dramas that I've previously watched or am currently drooling over. ________________________________
My current love for the past week has been this drama:
The Moon That Embraces the Sun
I am so in love with this drama. I've been watching it every night after work. My husband is continually saying, "you're still watching this?" It's that good. There are twenty episodes so you do need a good week and a half to finish it, depending on your free time. I wasn't really a fan of historical dramas until recently, besides The Rooftop Prince, which was my previous love, this one is absolutely breathtaking. It's romantic, dramatic, scandalous, just everything you'd like to see in a drama.
This is what the drama is about:
The story of the secret love between Lee Hwon, a fictional king of Joseon, and Wol, a female shaman. Wol was born as Heo Yeon Woo, the daughter of a noble family who won the love of the crown prince, Hwon. Her enemies, jealous of her family's position in court, schemed against her and wrestled away her rightful place as crown princess and nearly takes her life. Years later, an embittered Hwon meets Wol, now a female shaman who has no recollection of her past.
I couldn't find a trailer, but this music video of the theme song portrays the romantic feel of the drama. It also has english subtitles, so that helps us non-Koreans. :)
