[K-Drama Review] The Moon that Embraces The Sun

The Moon That Embraces the Sun aired its final episode last March 15 and along with it I'll write my thoughts about this one heck of a Korean national drama.

I jumped into the Moon/Sun fandom because of three reasons:
1. The casts. Kim Soo Hyun and Jung Il Woo are the male leads... uhmm, should I explain further? Lol
2. The story. I'm a sucker for stories that involves the deadly combination of royalty and tragedy. Not necessarily a tragic ending but tragedy along the length of the story.
3. And lastly but definitely the strongest reason of all, the type of drama --- It's SAGEUK. I have this sudden interest in Korean history because of the 2011 drama The Princess' Man. That drama was epic in both romance and politics. Although Moon/Sun is not based on real history, I still watched it so I'll have my dose of sageuk and hanboks to satisfy my cravings. If it's sageuk, fusion or 100%, I'm IN!

With that three reasons in mind, I went into full fangirl mode for The Moon That Embraces The Sun.
