dangermousie: (Capital Scandal Secrets by miss_dian)


Despite being unimpressed by the first episode of The Moon That Embraces the Sun, I decided to check a few more eps - everyone seemed to be so raving about it.

So, just finished episode 3 and it's official - despite the lackluster first episode, I am now enjoying this drama. It is still the fluffiest, least substance-filled sageuk I've ever seen (the only thing comparable in its cotton-candy vibe is new Huan Zhu Ge Ge. I don't need endless salt and smelting discussions a la Jumong, but something more than 'how will these cute people pair up' would be welcome, especially since the passion is absent due to the cast being in their mid-teens), but despite it all, I am hooked - I want to know what happens next and I do like pretty much every character except the hypocritical Bo Gyung.

I can't say I have iron-clad shipping preferences, but if I had to pick, I prefer Wol with the Crown Prince. Hooray, my love for canon shipping is preserved! I like the older prince just fine, but something about the hopeless, unabashed adoration Lee Hwon shows to Wol, gets me.

So, basically, not yet fully hooked, but really liking it. Oh, how I wish the rumors of Park Shi Hoo being the male lead came true. Alas...
