Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo: Episode 11
by | September 27, 2016 | 1,138 Comments
Now this is the kind of episode I’d been waiting for, and boy, does it deliver an emotional wallop. Everything seems to happen at once, leaving Su powerless against the much greater forces surrounding her. It’s not so easy for her suitors to swoop in and save the day this time, and the divide that... More »

Our heroine now has two suitors with two completely different approaches vying for her affections, and with restrictions aplenty, hers doesn’t seem the most enviable position to be in. Despite everyone having something to say in the matter, ultimately the choice is up to Su, even if that means she’ll have to find a way... More »

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds rose to an impressive 21.3% this week, but didn’t go much higher—though at this point, I wouldn’t put anything past that show. The fact that it dropped just a teensy bit in its even episode doesn’t mean much—there was a lot of content to distract audiences on Tuesday, including two episodes... More »

I’m really digging the emotion in this shoot, because it tells a story—a story with cuddling and Victorian dresses and random prisms, but a story nonetheless. Hey, when you’ve got professionally pretty people like Ji Chang-wook and Yoon-ah in front of your lens, who’s to complain? The actors are gearing up for the premiere of... More »

Our poor hero just can’t catch a break most days. Just when things start to look up for him and he dares to hope for more, it all comes crashing down around him. It doesn’t help that Su blames him for things he hasn’t even done yet, leaving him without someone he can reliably depend... More »

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo: Episode 8

Now it feels like we’ve finally dispensed with the setup to get to the actual meat of the character interactions, which is a definite plus in my book. Even if everything in this hour revolves around a newly introduced (and swiftly resolved) problem, it at least gives our heroine more opportunities to form new alliances,... More »

It happened—Moonlight Drawn By Clouds made it to the 20% mark, and during one of the most delightful weeks it’s had so far. That makes it hard for fellow competitor Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo to carve out any sort of meaningful space on its own, which is a shame, but what can you do.... More »

Working in the palace may have its downfalls, but when it has perks, it has perks. Su gets to know the princes a little bit better, and the princes get to know her and her bubbly attitude even more than before. She makes an impression on everyone she meets, that’s for sure—but with the hearts... More »
