Hotel Del Luna has gained ratings as well as popularity since its premiere back in July. I started it but currently its status is on hold for me, leaning towards dropped category as my interest is very minimal for this fantasy show. I like the setting, acting, music, characters, IU‘s costumes. But somehow it lacks that magic that I expect from the writers, my favorite, the Hong Sisters.

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. Continue reading →
