The story of “Moonlight drawn by clouds” is simple and full of charm. A girl and her mother were chased by some soldiers. The mother tries to hide the fact that her child Hong Ra-On (Kim Yoo Jung) is a girl and teaches her to pretend to be a boy for the rest of her life. Ra-On succeeds to survive and after years becomes the Lee Young’s (Park Bo Gum) eunuch. The fight for the power occurs between the king, his son and the prime minister who became too greedy. The series is aired on KBS2 every Monday and Tuesday at 10:00 pm.
So far, the story of “Moon Lovers” is a little bit annoying because there are lots of princes (eight in total), and we have to see all their faces mimicking surprise, laughing or saying something in each scene. I love Lee Joon Gi’s acting (an exceptional scene is the one in which Hae Soo (IU) tries to go back in the modern era and sees Wang So’s face scar by mistake). That scene is outstanding, and you can see Lee Joon Gi’s face transfiguring from surprise to anger.
I hope that the director will come up with an interesting story to compensate the K-drama’s weak parts, and he won’t base the main part on all the princes’ love for Hae Soo (until the sixth episode we have four princes in love with Hae Soo).
“Moon Lovers“ depicts the story of Ko Ha Jin/ Hae Soo (IU) who goes in time during a Sun eclipse and found herself in a sixteen years old girl body. She falls in love with the fourth prince who is a fierce warrior forced to live in exile all his live. He has to wear a mask because of a scar on his face, scar made by his mother when he was a child. This drama airs every Monday and Tuesday at 10:00 pm on KST.
