But I was bored and restarted The Moon That Embraces The Sun (started with ep 6) and am shockingly enjoying it. I think the fact that I now know its limitations (romantic fairy tale, no more no less) helps immensely, as does the fact that I am now removed from the mania and the psycho ratings.

I am not even loathing Kim Su Hyun (!!!!!) maybe my phobia of him is finally conquered (i can never drool over him as he still looks much younger than his actual age and I am not into the baby face thing, but I am enjoying watching him on screen).

A goo drama it is not, but it is actually entertaining me.

Clearly day of miracles. We will see how long it lasts.

ETA: alas, I spoke too soon! How does every secondary character in this manage the feat of being both boring and annoying at once, I have no idea. They are made for the skip button. I dig the romance though. It's pretty much a romance novel in drama form minus the heaving bosoms.

I wish we saw more of Han Ga In but still promising. Maybe this drama will make me overcome my dislike of Kim Soo Hyun (no, not rational, I fully realize), the way Warrior Baek Dong Soo did with Yoo Seung Ho.

I must be the only person who wants the adults asap - the child actors did a great job but ultimately kid sections are never going to be a draw for me.

I found out first 6 (or of 24!) eps of Moon that Embraced the Sun are childhood portions. Ugh. The drama is falling further and further on my radar. 6 eps is fine (even if pushing it) for a 60 ep drama but for a 24 ep drama, it's insane.

OTOH, it's based on a novel by the author of SKKS, so there is that, the type of story is what I like, and Kim Su Hyun looks oddly appropriate in costume even if still nowhere near old enough to romance Han Ga In.



Hmmmmmm.

I guess I'll wait and see what the flisties think.
