Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo is a South Korean drama based on the Chinese novel Bu Bu Jing Xin by Tong Hua. It aired its first episode on 29th August, 2016.
Go Ha-Jin (Lee Ji-eun/IU), a 25 year old woman, drowns in a lake when trying to rescue a child. This event so happens during a total eclipse of the sun.
She wakes up inside the body of a 16 year old girl, Hae Soo, who lived during the Goryeo Dynasty Korea, i.e., she’d travelled back in time. There, she encounters the many princes of the ruling family.
Soon, she falls in love with the kind 8th Prince Wang Wook (Kang Ha-neul). However, she also becomes the object of interest (and affection, ahem ahem) of the fearsome 4th Prince S0 (Lee Joon-gi) who is also known as the wolf, a nickname given to him not because of his looks (which are not lacking…btw. At. All.). He wears a mask to hide is scarred face from the world.
Prince So is mysterious and feared by many. Having been rejected by his mother (Queen Yoo Ssi) and father (King Wang Gun), he is given away to another family. He returns to the palace and tries to reconcile with his brothers.
Hae Soo is the only one who is not afraid of the Prince and she is able to break down the walls of the Prince and he allows himself to get close to her.
The politics in the Palace uncover the true personalities and characters of each prince and fate entangles Hae Soo with all of them, but the question remains as to whom will she be able to fully give her heart to. Will his love for her be enough or will he choose the throne?
NOTE: Well, this drama has definitely taken up my interest. I am really into it because of its amazing plot (and actors ahem). I can’t watch any other drama besides this because this one just makes the others boring. It has captivated my mind. I’m liking it a lot and I’m glad to know that it is gaining a lot of views and likes. I don’t know about the others, but I really really like this drama. I can’t wait to find out what happens.
