[Drama 2016] Moon Lovers ❤ Scarlet Heart Ryeo, 달의 연인-보보경심 려 \^0^/ Soompi Kdrama 2016 Winner

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the recent round of spoilers!  Yipeee!  It's almost Monday!

What I like most about this drama is HS gets to fall in love with two men... Twice the romance for me to watch!  :w00t:  Although HS with WW doesn't work out, she'll have a second chance with WS.  I love the idea that even if you break up with what you thought was the love of your life, there is a second chance for love that might be even better than the first. :rolleyes:

That being said, here's what I'm hoping for:

So far between WW and HS, there are a lot of cute, warm, fuzzy moments.  :wub:  KHN has really shocked me with his performance (last time I saw him was in Monstar acting as a high school student!).  As some predicted, his personality may change... and I'm soooooo looking forward to his more intense, jealous side!  With his acting ability, I'm sure he'll have an unforgettable performance, so bring it on! 

Then there's WS and HS... Actually, I'm not really hoping for warm and fuzzies, but more intensity and passion between the two characters!  This is going to be HS's love of her life, so it's gotta be more impactful than her first romance, right?!  Also, when we think of all the stuff WS did for his mother to try to win her affection, what do you think he'll do to win HS's affection?!  I'm expecting some heart fluttering stuff (not just the subtle wooing and little trinkets that Ruoxi got from the 4th prince in the original)!  And LJK, the already amazing actor his is... will surely deliver a heart-wrenching love story.  I am also hoping for some really tear jerking moments actually. :tears:

 

Finally... some random thoughts on Haesoo's "wild card" prince (possible spoilers due to the mention of the original BBJX...) :phew:

Spoiler

 

So we still have the 14th Prince as the wild card who ultimately married Ruoxi even though she thought of him as a friend. Actually, even after watching the original I'm not sure if the 14th Prince ever harbored any feelings (besides friendship) for Ruoxi either.  But, do you think that will happen in this version?  I thought the scene in episode 4 where WS and WW saved the 14th prince and HS, yet in the end HS hugged the 14th prince.  I thought the "WTF?" expression were funny on WW and WS.  Was it a potential foreshadowing?

Ji Soo is actually a talented actor, so I don't mind more scenes with HS and the 14th prince. In the original, there was that story line when he and Ruoxi pretended to be lovers because he didn't want to be caught at the Mongolian camp.  I wouldn't mind if that was some how written into this version.  It might be a pretty funny and a cute story line! :w00t:  (Of course seeing a jealous WW or WS if they found out wouldn't be so bad either!)

i read one more info about the real Wang So. So was really exiled in history i guess. The reason of he is being exile is because there is a prophecy that he will coz a bloodshed in the palace if he become a king, that is why he was sent away. I think this is why Queen Yoo sent him away prob she already been told about the prophecy. No wonder she looks extremely terrified when Wang So came to her chamber that night all covered in blood. For a second she might thought that So has done a killing spree in the palace. 

I think rather than anger, Queen Yoo is more afraid of Wang So but she channeled it in hatred form. That is why she is trying hard to prevent Wang So to enter the palace. And she did say that a mother should know which son that could benefit when ascending the throne. Little that she know that the prophecy somehow will come through but later. And I 100% confirm JiMong knew about this kind of prophecies too coz he has that worried look when the princes visit his tower.

(SPOILERS IN YELLOW)

BBJX, the Chinese version of MLSHR destroyed me with its intense angst in the latter half of its run, but it still is one of my favourite dramas, very well-written and well-acted.  The Korean version, MLSHR, is such a joy to watch for me.  Maybe one reason for me is how light the tone feels so far (perhaps because it's the first part of the series).  Also, it's based off from BBJX with Korean history and the actors are really good in their roles.  Lots of eye candy too xD (and LJK!!!! One of my fave male actors - he has the most expressive facial expressions, which gives us insight into his thinking & feelings without a word.  Last time i watched him acting was in Joseon Gunman (i recommend it by the way, great plot too!)).  I can see the parallels between the Chinese version and the Korean version.  There are slight differences here and there, which is natural, of course, seeing it is a Korean adaptation.  I'm excited for the parallels for HS' love line with WS.  

In the Chinese version, many gifts were given by the 4th prince to the female lead, Rouxi.  I wonder if WS will do the same thing for HS or if not, what gestures will he perform to show his love for her?  I've seen one scene where they're at the beach on his horse (in the trailer) asking her if she wants to run away and how he's willing to do it for her. ***SWOON***  I wonder, did he just take her away from the palace spontaneously?  He seems to be the type to do such a thing, a difference from the Chinese 4th prince who always does things with forethought, but WS is a wild card, very unpredictable. So i'm excited for that…honestly, Chinese 4th prince was boring in many instances, lol.  As for WS, I love his intense nature (except for his killing side: yikes!!!).  So we must expect his love for HS will be intense too?  I just hope it's not suffocating like Chinese 4th prince after he became emperor and claimed Rouxi as his.  I hope WS isn't manipulative with HS either.  Otherwise, he'll be just like his mother, the queen.  I'm really curious about what will get WS to be interested in the throne.  In BBJX, Chinese 4th prince was interested in becoming emperor from the start.  As for WS, I wonder how he'll get to that point to pursue the throne.

The Concubine Oh is an enigmatic figure. She keeps her face still and schooled all the time, but there are moments when her eyes betray her  - a flicker here, a lowering of the lids there - to show that she knows everything that's going on, the carrying-ons between Wang Wook and Hae Su, for instance. I think she is going to be an important ally for Hae Su; she would probably be future Hae Su, who may become Wook's concubine later...not sure about Crown Prince and Concubine Oh's relationship....she seems very attached to him.

DO you guys think the princes hairstyle has any significant meaning? I noticed the younger princes (Wang Eun, Baek Ah and Wang Jung) only tie their hair while the older ones (except our Goryeo fshionista Wang So ;)) had the tiny bun hairstyle. Because it was separate between the age group so i think there must have some meaning to it. 

IT shows their marital status: Eun, Jung, Baek Ah and So are not married, while the others are.

Annyeong guys! :)

Just watched ep 6 & 7! Kyaaa the storyline gets better & better every episode! I'm already longing for the next episode, thank God it's close to Monday. The birthday surprise was soo cute! I love to see all the princes get to gather and have fun together.

In the latest 2 episodes, I see the relationship between Wang Wook & Hae Soo is getting stronger :blink:  Seriously, the 2nd lead syndrome is no joke heree haha. But I'm still rooting for Wang So & Hae Soo all the way! Wang So FTW!!!

Poor So, having to show his insecurity to his brothers. In my opinion, the scar is not so bad at all! It kinda makes Wang So look like a bad boy on the outside but soft on the inside ;p

I realized that Hae Soo is good at make up right? So she is able to cover So's scar with make up then, no worries ;)

All the OST played in Moon Lovers Scarlet Heart Ryeo are soooo good!  And my favorite unreleased OST has been played again in the scene where Wang So threw some rocks to the lake. Anyone knows who sing that song? It sounds like Ailee. Hopefully they will release that OST along with the new episode in the upcoming Monday / Tuesday <3

till now no he does not like her enough to take big chances and i wonder in future when he will be standing against WS will it to have his love back or just male ego to win over the man who snatched the gal he was in love (or was still in process of falling in love where he could anything just to be with her)

Hello All Starting Late, Didn't have a good day today.. Well I see were crawling to get to 500 pages but I huess by Monday it will hzappen because of the new episode..

@KdramaSwimmer  I don't think he would ever like her enough to take that leap of fate WW is all about saving face and that he will do but he will challenge WS every chance he can get to boost his ego and to make himself feel good and look good to her.. The fun part of it all once HS discovers this she will know who and were true love is WS won't have to say or do anything when this happens I look for WW niceness becomes hatefulness and uglyness..

To answer your question as to the picture below, I think his is a soul searching gaze while her's is a concentrating on the makeup one. He's all too aware of how intimate they are at the moment while I'm not sure if she's passing that much heed. She's done a lot of makeup before so I would say she's used to it.....

@MadraRua  Hello, Oh yes she's aware very much aware no one can resists those eyes looking at them and that up close and personal.. That is a look of intimacy WS looks ay her like he's going to plant one on her and contemplating should I or shouldn't I.. Maybe will get a kiss scene in Monday's episode let it be gentle and smooth and she accepts it and reply..

#sosoo couple team

#4th prince and hae soo team

Hope the drama will not follow the history much lol

I hate to read when i found  the history of joseon when it said, yeon hwa was the queen of joseon due to the marriage to 4th prince. And hae soo was the mother of the 6th king and it was written that the father of the king was 8th prince.

yes thats very correct... all throne fighting against WS will be just his way to keep his image intact in front of HS, also to keep that pretense that he loves her more than WS alive... and obviously he cant bear his ego if gets hurt seeing HS-WS togeter...

I alrady said in this show we will see Overly good WW turning Worst and Bad by WS turning good and soft..so we will have to wait and watch how that transition will happen.

@ruzikie @ossy91 i am with your about Scholar.. i couldnt get past epi 3 for two reasons... my type chemistry missing and then all that blood and vampires ... (I am one of the person who can get scared of just listening ads of Ghost tv shows let alone watch it ) so i prefferd to stay away from it and thought to wait till LJK comes in next Saeguk and here he is.....yaaayyy...

@MadraRua soul searching gaze...could be... its knows Eyes are the mirror of your sould and heart so may be WS is trying to catch that soul and can take her heart just by looking in her eyes...

@Mona Ys thanks for all those scenes... Arang is one my most fav shows cause I loved everything abt that show and seeing those scene just feel so good...

@solelylurking yeah mesmerized is that word can be used....and sure no kiss will happen here....he is still not sure how come she can be so near to him with no expression of fear.. and what i feel about those eyes he is trying to absorb her closeness and not to flinch, trying to believe she can be so close to him and be still, trying to control his heart when she touches her face with her soft tender fingers but fails(i hope so we get to listen louder heart beats in background)...and those eyes have mix of all those feelings all together...

Beauty and beast...thats one pretty nice cartoon but i watched the disney movie only and loved..(btw I love all disney animation movies...all of them...) and no issues of being late... me too dont have much time this week to be here all the time...wil be on and off but read all comments and try to respond too.

Hi ruzikie! Yes, Wang So will become Gwangjong in the future... :)

 

I wonder where they're going with this...
Some history pills, first.
As far as I know, Gwangjong was a great ruler, who strengthened the central power by wiping off the local warlords in the entire empire and introduce fundamental reforms like the meritocratic bureaucracy with exams open to everybody; in the same year (958), he freed the people enslaved after the wars. He appeared to have a strong sense of the role of the individual auto-determination within society (a trait that fits fictional Wang So's personality as shown in the drama)... BUT he was remembered also as a ruthless sovereign, capable of killing his own family members when they opposed his ascend to power and his political choices. It seems to me that he had a pretty ahead-of-his-time attitude to things and we might even say quite a "modern" political view (compatible with his character in the drama... kudos to the writer), but he also had a very merciless, "medieval" way of achieving his goals (this too compatible with his dark side shown in the first episodes). 
Not the typical protagonist for a romance... 
However, I'm really interested in the story also for this specific reason: if they don't edulcorate it for narrative purposes, it might be an original and quite off-track take on the genre... Will the writer choose to portrait the female lead's dive into the past as a (at least partial) history-changing event? Kunggeum he...

What do you think, @briseis? I'd like to know your opinion on this...
