    The Moon the Embraces The Sun
    'The Moon that Embraces the Sun'.. might of just been another highly anticipated drama. The plot, the characters, the cast itself were pretty good. I enjoyed most of it for which part, the story line kept me going. A bad point I credit to this was that it dragged on for a couple of episodes, it could of been brightened up more with a huge anti-climatic change in the middle of the story. Overall, I ...

    Interesting, but repetitive, complacent/boring female, adults can not act as well as the younger actors
    When I first saw this drama's photo I had the impression that it would be a serious drama that would be geared towards a mature audience, while still successfully incorporating the younger viewers in it. After several episodes, I had to rethink what I should expect of this show. I would like to share some pro's and con's as well as a brief synopsis :

    Pro:
    -The younger actors (the actors ...

    The Moon That Embraces The Sun
    Ok so, this is an amazing drama. I thought I would not like it because the cover photo had the characters wearing some traditional clothing, so I immediately thought this would be a historical drama kind of feel to it. I was hesitant to try it out, but it had romance so I had to try it out. (Also, I have a friend at school who is Korean and she said that when she would talk to her friends from ...

    Nice Job on the cliff hanger series!!
    This series was very good and complicated. I enjoyed the actors, although there was a little disconnect with the youth versus the older charactes in growing up. Overall, it kept me on the edge of my seat and glued to the TV until I got it finished.

    some good some bad %
    this really is a great series
    yes it starts off where when they were children (don't let that scare you)
    but its good to see how their character unfold (yes the kids in this movie were excellent actors, better than there counter parts)
    the beginning is light-hearted and fun (which is what it is supposed to be when dealing with children)
    then tragedy strikes
    they ...

  • Fantasy Love Story--set to a wonderful soundtrack!!
    I liked the mix of folklore and politics, it made for a more interesting drama. The younger actors in the beginning of the series were so amazing, in comparison to the older versions of themselves later, that I wanted them not to get older and change actors. The young female lead shined so that the elder lead seemed vastly diminished and less convincing as the same character. That being said all ...

  • A Wonderful Fiction!
    The story line was hard to resist. I enjoyed the humor in this movie too. Loved the princes and their older counterparts. I hope Kim Yoo Jung will appear in another drama on crunchyroll, I am hooked on kdrama now that I know she exists in it. For such a young girl she is AMAZING actress! Yeonwoo's family along with the King's (funny) eunuch were my second favorite set of characters/actors. The ...

  • Simply amazing Drama
    The story is really good and there is lots of drama to keep you from getting bored. You go through an emotional roller coaster with this one, but it's amazing and worth it in my opinion. Give a try if you like love stories or historical dramas, it's good, I recommend it.

  • A great drama with an astounding soundtrack
    Just wanted to say that the acting was INCREDIBLE for the entire cast.
    All the emotions were conveyed very effectively (I mean, I cried watching it because all the emotions!)
    Although a bit slow at times, the acting kept me engaged.
    I rarely watch Korean dramas, especially those not set in our era, yet this captured me so much.
    5 stars~
