Remember what I said about not being a sageuk lover? Well, now I will be watching not one but two sageuks for coming months as after getting totally entertained by last week’s premiered drama Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, I’m looking forward to this week’s premiere show — Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo. The latter is surely a star-studded drama as we have lots and lots of actors performing the K-version of a popular Chinese novel and drama. And that is probably the main reason I’m excited about the show. It is basically a romance story with some garnishing of fantasy elements.
IU plays (she is going by her real name Lee Ji Eun for the show) a modern-day woman who travels back in time to the Goryeo era and there she will meet different princes — Lee Jun Ki, Kang Ha Neul, Hong Jong Hyun, Ji Soo, Nam Joo Hyuk, Baekhyun. Wow. So many pretty faces! Then there is female cast consisting of Seohyun, Kang Hanna and Jin Ki Joo, with a strong supporting cast of Kim Sung Kyun, Sung Dong Il and many more.
Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo (That’s a very, very long moniker for a frequent use, so I’ll simply go for Scarlet Heart) is directed by the PD of It’s Okay, It’s Love and That Winter, the Wind Blows while adapted by the writer of Cinderella Man and Save The Last Dance For Me. It’s a fully pre-produced show and has been promoting left, right and center from a many weeks. Finally, it is hitting the airwaves tomorrow, following Doctors on SBS.
What can I say about the posters — everyone is looking pretty!!!
