Drama review: The Moon That Embraces The Sun

I can say this is the best saeguk drama I've ever watched. I love love love this drama to bits. This is a fusion saeguk, where King Lee Hwon (Kim Soo Hyun) is just a fictional character. The story is about king Lee Hwon who is fated with Heo Yeon Woo (Han Ga In) but then separated by third person who are sacrifing this couple for their own selfishness. This drama is connected with legend too, which was narrated in the beginning of the first episode. The way they are separated, how they meet again, and the triangle love are some of the factors which made this drama attractive and worth to watch. At first I was doubt with the actor casted in this drama especially Kim Soo Hyun because I first knew him in Will it Snow For Christmas where he's still a teenager then he acted in Dream High as a teenager too and now he should act as a king in a saeguk. Besides he also had to encounter 6 years age gap between him and Han Ga In. But after I watched the first 8 episodes, for sure he really suits this character and he makes a good couple with his 'noona'. And what I love from this drama is since the beginning it has been really interesting till the very last episode. They told about their childhood stories for about 6 episodes but it's not boring at all. This plays crucial part of the drama. Im going to spoil a bit: they have a happy ending and the ending is indeed VERY GREAT.

The story of the secret love between Lee Hwon, a fictional king of Joseon, and Wol, a female shaman. Wol was born as Heo Yeon Woo, the daughter of a noble family who won the love of the crown prince, Hwon. Her enemies, jealous of her family's position in court, schemed against her and wrestled away her rightful place as crown princess and nearly takes her life. Years later, an embittered Hwon meets Wol, now a female shaman who has no recollection of her past.(dramawiki)
