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

I do not know if its my hyperactive imagination... but i feel creeped out whenever the princes are the first queens bedroom especially the 3rd prince... somehow it gives out a Oedipus vibe....

I really loved the OSTs for ep 9 too. But Im not sure whether you mean the sbs edit or the international edit. Both had different songs played during that scene, I realized.

yups..definitely the new song..and when HS feel scared at her room (who sing the ost?so sweet..not released yet right?) at SBS version

@shinaabby I edit my post..forgot to point the SBS..aarrggghh..Monday please come sooner!!

Yes I meant the SBS version one! I think it will be my favorite. So far I love the Epik High ft. Lee Hi the most, and I also love the intro of IOI's OST when they play it at this scene

The song makes me feels like I'm staring deeply to Wang So's soul... that eyes... (If I were Hae Soo, my legs would be numb for sure! :D )

This is about ep 10, so if you dont want any spoilers dont read this

but i am looking forward to ep 10 and the advancement of WS-HS relationship.

Spoiler

 

This reminds me of the time in BBJX when 4th prince saved RuoXi from the arrow. Ruo Xi also mentioned In her last letter to 4th before she dies, that she fell in love with him when he casually told her he wanted the throne and when he saved her from an arrow.

Edit: she also mentioned another few things that made her fall for him. I looked around again and RX also said that the moment he took an arrow for her, she knew she could never forget him.

This also reminds me when 4th saved her from marrying CP, but I think MLSHR already added this when So stood up to stop King Taejo from marrying Soo.

Perhaps the "poison scene" will be a equivalent to the arrow scene, where our girl Soo starts to really see how much he cares for her. She see's that he's truly sincere and truly in love with her that he's willing to put her first before anything.

 

Out of nowhere but: Soo also mentioned to Eun that she doesnt want to live a life where she has to share her husband, while waiting for him to visit her. Although we know that So will most likely marry YH for political reasons, So has given his heart to ONLY Soo. Idk if Soo will accept that... I understand if she doesn't. If that happens my heart would cry out for Soo. So would probably suffer from this marriage as well and ugh it will kill all of us slowly.

Unless it is like in BBJX where 4th doesn't marry RuoXi so that he can spend more time with her alone and not have to flip her stick to take turns spending nights with her and the other concubines. Therefore Soo might stay in her current position where she can freely move and spend time with So.

Edit: Sorry guys, but Im doing comparisons between BBJX and MLSHR... I like that MLSHR is different and I honestly think MLSHR is better than the c-ver. Just my opinion tho.

This drama is making me crazy... Sigh... I also feel like I should rewatch the whole series because Im too excited to "digest" all of this together.... Idk how to explain it, im horrible at explaing haha.

the song fate from The King and Clown is totally our OTP main song.. 

Promise me that when this moment's over and we meet again
That we can put everything in the past and stand by each other
 
This is what we call fate, it's something we can't deny
Will I ever experience another day as glorious as today?
 
You're a gift upon this exhausting path of life (WS to HS)
I'll continuously wash and shine our love so it won't rust away
Our meeting was short like a drunken affair, but it was real
 
Even though this cannot last, I won't resent it because nothing is forever (HS to WS)
This is what we call fate, it's something we can't deny
Will I ever experience another day as glorious as today?
 
There's so much i want to say, but you probably already know
When we meet again some time in the future
Please don't let go again
The love we couldn't have in this life
The fate we couldn't live in this life
 
When we meet again some time in the future
Please don't let go of me
 
the love that they can't get in this era and in this life , the fate that will take HS away from WS....
just please give my OTP a happy ending no matter what..

@churasan I think there must be a connection with Woo Hee dance..I saw in the long preview where she dances with killer eyes..holding a knife in her hands.. I couldn't see her target though..

Just sharing my thoughts here chingu...I couldn't seem accept any other Kdramas right now..when I try to watch I always find it somehow shallow..what has this drama done to me....:sweatingbullets:

Hi chingus,

I wanna ask, why they have 2 version for this drama?

Or is it a rule that if drama airing in the same time for international viewers they should have different version? Or what? Anyone can answer me?

I am a Soo/So shipper, but I'm in the minority that I'm glad they didn't get together yet.  For me, the best part of the drama is always the CHASE because it is much more intense and exciting.  :w00t:  Right now I love how both So and Wook are getting desperate for HS - it's like a race against time.  S

As for Su's premonitions... I LOVE this plot device they are using!  It adds a layer of mystery to the storyline and has us questioning the credibility of Su's visions because we all see how So really is deep down.  :huh:  I am very curious to see how HS will overcome these visions.  Also, it really helps emphasize why Su is becoming hysterical.  If I started seeing stuff like that, I would question my sanity as well.

I really don't have much to complain about this drama - even the weird editing, extreme close ups, etc... - I can get over it.  But, my only complaint right now is the side story between the 13th Prince and Woo Hee Princess.  For me, I feel like her storyline is really disconnected from everything else...  at least in the original, there was some connection to the 13th Prince and his love interest with Ruoxi.  But, here I felt if anything should have been edited, it should have been her dance scene.  It seemed much longer than it needed to be - especially for a character that literally has been given no background story.  I've never been a fan of side stories in any drama... but it's even worse when it isn't even related with anything else going on.  :(

Anyways... to sum up... I pretty much love this drama and nothing the storyline could do now would make me drop it!  :wub:

You are an angel. I need to commend you. I am glad, someone like the show as it is. :)

@shinaabby yes, since ep 7, I think MLSHR has done a great job differentiating themselves from BBJX.

I am concurrently trying to rewatch some of BBJX too and I notice some minor points in BBJX were picked out by MLSHR to dramatize. Like how they pick out the part where the 8th's wife has a crush on the 8th and hence insist on marrying him. This was merely mentioned over a conversation. But in MLSHR, they took that part and created Lady Hae from that basis.

@luci13 actually there are many historicals on primetime korean tv that are very long. Empress ki and Six Flying dragons were 50 eps. Then there were Chuno and Shine or Go Crazy, to name a few that I remembered.

@valentvcd Yes I also noticed that her mouth open slightly. That's why its very interesting, it look abit of a mutual kiss to me.

---------------------

I need someone to help me on Jimong. What I understand is, he went to the future when he was 4 or 5? Then he came back to his current life talking like an adult? Is that right? Its not that he is from future right? Actually I think that should show HS that there is a way back, but she never even asked him that. hmmm.

Since ep 3, every ep has some difference between the sbs and international version. so far until to night the korean version was the more interesting one.

but tonight, tonight! the international kiss is so much longer. it shows hs's pushing him away once, then So goes in for a second time and hs thumping him to reject him but later stop struggling. at that point, So stop, and look at hs. 

-----------------

the c version kiss came much earlier so it was justifiable that ruoxi pushed the 4th away, it happened too early. but this one at ep 9, timing wise was ok, yes So doesnt know how to express love, so all he could say was You belong to Me, You are Mine. Thats all he knows how to say. And then when HS said I am not yours, he just had to go in for intimacy. To him, they were already in a relationship. 

--------------------

on a side note, i wonder how long and how many angles they took to film the scene. heehee.

-----------------

I am disappointed with the funny premonitions, but it reminds me that the C-version was a tragedy. it started out funny then the tone turns heavy. Ruoxi was depressed at the later part most of the time. 

Here k version, is doing the same thing, they brought in all the handsome prince to lure us thinking this is a rom com. but its not. This is a melodrama,  I am about 90% prepared that the ending will be a tragedy altho I hope the k writer can do miracles.

@qwenli... Started this drama I have suspected it will not end on a happy note why becuase like you said this is a melodrama. I expected me being torn all over the place but they changed so much in this drama that It is unpredictable. Wang So is scared and had a terrible life meanwhile his brothers and sisters have lived cushy lives. I feel that since there will be tragedy, they should at least let Wang So have some good memories before everything goes to hell. :(  :(

Hi everyone,

thanks everyone for your comments!!!

my guess till know is that WS is the Gwangjong  and there will not be a new version of him.

That ruthless is already in him, just that it does not yet have the context to be fully activated, Trying not to romanticising him, I feel that there was enough cues about WS to understand that he can be that king - like when he put the mountain and his tree friend on fire, killing the monks, his bad reputation, the dialogue with his general , the aggresivity and determination in how he acts, sometimes the look from his eyes, his threats, He is not playing the tough guy, he really is one . And also he already is someone who has the incipient idea that will bloom in the vision of eliberating the slave. The intelligence and openess that will make he able to reign a kingdom, 

I find him being able, just as he is now, to became the king that would be " known for squashing his political rivals and creating an atmosphere of fear within the political realm at the time. " .  In my opinion, he really is portrayied as a man able to induce fear, to dominate the ones around him and to cruely kill his rivals!!! but he is not a bornkiller or a psychopath!!! he is someone who has enough aggresion, violence and will in him to be able to kill when he will consider that he is protecting something of value (and being a king - the kingdom will be the most important one!).

Being a tyran doesnt meen that that person cannot have a kind and vulnerable part, known only to his close ones. OR that he cannot be loved ... like HS said : Maybe you will not be forgiven, But I can relate to your pain. ... This will be the greatness of HS - that she will accept and love someone like him, despite his cruel part, but also the tragedy  cause most probably , he cannot be changed by her and she will not be able to live near him for too long, just because of it. 

Also till know all his major decision were not influenced by HS: the decision to let the Kang clan and came to the royal court, the decision to make his place in this court, the desire to see what is meant to be a king (which, like the general , I  interpret like  sign of him wanting, uncounsciosly to be the king). the decision to support the Prince Crown, the decision to do the rain ritual again - he is very independent in his decision and his ideas , he is not relying on HS to have them, 

But the most important cue that he is Gwangjong is from ep 9 - the expresion from HS vision is also for a second on WS's face when he turns around. HS wasnt making a mistake - she really is seeing him, only that she is not able to interpret corectly what she is seeing and is too shoked by her discovery.

oh my god, how come the rating is so low??? for me, i totally prefer moon lover rather than love in moonlight. Can anyone give me an insight why the korean people despise this drama so much?

Thanks for the clarification.  I just thought of it... maybe she was given a better background story at one point, but with all these weird editing and versions going around, maybe parts of her storyline ended up on the editing room floor!  :P

I know how you feel about being really hooked one one drama... every other drama I watch these days, I seem to compare with Scarlet Heart Ryeo.  But, I've always been a Goryeo or time travel storyline fan.  About a couple of years ago around this time,  all I could think about was "Faith" (or the "The Great Doctor").  So, I knew right away I would be addicted to this one.

SAME HERE!! I actually liked both new songs! I totally agree with you in the scene where our OTP first meet! Haha yes its as if we are staring right into Wang So's soul! The song made it so epic, you just knew they had a connection immediately.. Or maybe its just me haha my leg would do the same too :rolleyes:

Chingu , I feel the same way. Wang So had my heart the moment he walked bathing area and bumped into Hae Soo. My favorite scene between my OTP SoSoo couple.

About Jimong, Im a little confused too. But I think he was being tricky with Hae Soo. He is from the future like Hae Soo but instead, he was put in the body of a child. Thats why he said his mother told him he was wise for his age. He died once and came back to life, just like how Soo did.

Edit: also, I want to add that he knew what the 21st century was like. Remember the airplanes? He also mentioned about skyscrapers. he carried all that knowledge in a childs mind.thinking again, you might be right as well and I could be wrong...

since one of the opponent are already end normally the rating will increase, but since i think this drama will be more and more darker i don't think will rise so high.
