Moon That Embraces the Sun releases posters

Upcoming fantasy-romance sageuk Moon That Embraces the Sun, or better known around here as MoonSun-Snowflake-PixieDust, has just released its official posters, less than a week out from the premiere. They feature the four leads: Kim Soo-hyun, the fictional Joseon King, Han Ga-in, the shaman who falls in love with him, Jung Il-woo, the king’s playboy hyung, and Kim Min-seo, the femme fatale. The posters all carry the tagline: “Don’t come close! But don’t go far…” which I’m assuming comes from the king. Well THAT’s not a mixed message to a girl or anything. Geez. I guess being King doesn’t preclude a guy from being a guy.

They’re not especially original as far as drama posters go, but the leads are so pretty that I guess that’s all the eye candy you really need. There is a thematic touch with the sun and moon sharing the same sky, evoking the mystical cannot-be-ness of their love. I’m looking forward to the genre mashup — if they actually go all-out with the fantasy shaman angle and give us fusiony magic, it’ll give the whole thing a sense of whimsy and mystery, and set it apart from all the other sageuk fare.

For a show like this, I want epic mythology and grandeur. The cast is enough to tune in for, but I’m excited about the story as well, and could use a good fantasy series to sink my teeth into. And let us not forget the manes of glory too. I mean, that’s what we’re really watching for, yeah?

Moon That Embraces the Sun premieres next Wednesday, January 4, on MBC.

Hooray, it's never too soon for another Jung Il Woo drama! :) Hope the actors don't overwork themselves with so little time to film before the drama premieres.

I don't even care what this drama is about. I'm going to watch the 1st episode because of the 3 main leads, hoping it's good! It will be good to see Jung Il Woo in a more serious role. Also, I adore Han Ga In!

Man, am I looking forward to this drama! Kim Soo Huyn AND Jung Il Woo in the same drama! What's not to like? ( I hope nothing!)
But I do think Jung Il Woo's head looks a bit strange on the first poster, and isn't he supposed to be very tall? He still looks great though!

Apparently, there IS one thing not to like.
Han Ga-In, urgh! This is a crime! How can something make me doubt watching a drama who has BOTH Kim Soo Hyun AND Jung Il Woo together?!

It's ridiculous, I tell ya. And sooo disappointing.

Oh, I forgot about her. Or, well I kinda erased her from my memory! I hope it turns out she can really act (maybe Jung Il Woo's and Kim Soo Huyn's presence will be enough) and does not bring the drama down!

Yea I'm just hoping for her to surprise me in this drama, just for Kim Soo Hyun's and Jung Il Woo's sake. Usually her acting is pretty bland. Hope she can prove that she's not just a pretty face. Cause, y'know she IS surrounded by an amazing cast.

So yeah, Han Ga In, I'm begging you, surprise us and prove everyone wrong! *crosses fingers*

the poster actually reminds me of the thrones I saw in the palaces in Seoul. Behind each throne there is a painting of sun and moon. I remember the guide mentioning the significance of them, but I don't remember anymore. Anyone know what I'm talking about.

i still think han ga in is not suited as the female lead.. she's pretty but she can't act.

I'm already sold on this because of Jung Il-woo. But that doesn't mean I'll like it. The posters are intriguing, but it's plot that I'm waiting for. So, I'm iffy on this one.

It has something to do with their first meeting after she becomes a shaman, Blue has done a very good job translated the novel up to chapter 3.

The more fantasy, the better - as long as it's not campy or cheesy. I like my fantasy the way MGIAG did it, moonlight and silvery tails.

Haven't watched a sageuk since WBDS. This looks like the one for me, provided the writing can stand up to the pretty.

Isn't she much older than him? Or is it supposed to be that way? I've only watched him in Will It Snow for Christmas, and he was just a teenager then, so he should be in his early 20s now?

This is the first drama I'll see han ga in in; I hope she doesn't disappoint. The moon and the sun has a long distance romance. They only meet during a solar eclipse. Bittersweet.

Kim Soo-hyun and Jung Il Woo are enough reasons to see this drama, I hope the story won't disappoint. This will be the fourth Sageuk drama that I'll be watching if ever. I've have only seen Hong Gil Dong, Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Joseon X-files and I love these dramas. Looking forward to Il Woo new project ^_~

then you should see Tree With Deep Roots. That one drama can topple down Sungkyunkwan and Hong Gil Dong. But Joseon X-files is still the best.

it seems like kim soo hyun and han ga in don't have chemistry, or is it just me? For me, Han Ga In is an actress that have difficulty establishing a chemistry with her co actor.

I hope Han Ga In would give a better performance than the one she did at Bad Guy!

Han Ga In is terribly miscast - she has zero ability to emote let alone act. She also looks matronly and depressed next to her younger and charismatic lead actor.
