Hey there guys, Kennie here and today I’m gonna talk about Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo!
Moon Lover: Scarlet Heart Ryeo is a Korean melodrama based on the Chinese drama Scarlet Heart. A 21st Century woman is transported back to the Goryeo Dynasty in the body of Hae Soo in the year 941. She must live in this time period among the princes with her cousin who is married to the 8th prince, Wang Woo. She goes through her daily life interacting with the princes and even gets caught up in the rivalry between them for the throne.
IU plays Hae Soo in this drama and this drama is the reason I got into IU. I love her acting in Moon Lovers, and I think she portrayed this character very well. Hae Soo was a was kind woman but refused to be controlled by the Princes and their whims. She got in trouble quite often for this and as the show progresses she learns how to be herself without having other people to help her out of situations. I love how well IU shows Hae Soo’s growth as a person and captures the essence of her very well to give life to her character.
