C Drama Review : 步步惊心(Bu Bu Jing Xin)


Hi everyone!

Today i decided to write a review for 步步惊心 after finished watching it a few days ago. It made a very deep impression in my head and my heart as well. It’s my lucky fate to know and to watch this drama. First, i want to mention, this is not a recent drama, it started to air back in 2011, based on the novel with same chinese title by Tong Hua. It was my fortunate fate to bumped into this drama link while i’m googling for a decent period drama. Initially i was bored with recent k-dramas and start to search for K-period dramas but alas, most of the decent one i already watched before. And then, i start gambling with C-period dramas (I never, ever watched any C-period dramas besides pearl princess, judge bao, and journey to the west. What a great childhood memories LOL). I saw 步步惊心 synopsis and i immediately realized, this is what i’m looking for. Truthfully, i always fantasizing about this exact kind of plot, and always curious as how it will be if it’s really happen. And… it’s really happening now! (at least someone make it happen in this drama i mean :p )

So, this is the short synopsis about the drama : (more…)

Drama review : The Moon that Embraces the Sun

Hi Everyone!

K-Drama lovers must already know this recent historical K-Drama, The Moon that Embraces the Sun. They had high rating during the airing, i really excited to watch this drama. Sadly this drama reached the final episode on Mar 15 2012 in total of 20 episodes. Today i want to make a short review about this drama, hope this review helpful for you 😉


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.

I really like this drama a lot. The storyline is great despite of 4 episodes cut from originally 24 episodes 😦 . But i think there are some plot that lack of attention and not too great ending especially Seol and Prince Yang Myeong ending (sorry for the spoiler for those who haven’t watch this drama) and i like their childhood story better than when they are grow up. My final rating for this drama is 8/10. What do you think? Do you like this drama? Your thoughts in comment are appreciated! 😉
