How often does it happen that all the dramas that you’re watching end within a week’s time? Maybe it’s not so coincidental because I’ve only been watching two dramas recently, but it sure is nice being able to turn a new leaf in the drama world, putting some dramas to rest and starting others with new excitement.

The Moon That Embraces the Sun: Watch at your discretion.

Probably one of the most anticipated dramas of this season. Probably one of the most glorified dramas of this season. Probably one of the most watched dramas of this season.

Overrated. (As Eunii would say; she hasn’t watched it yet, though.)

Was it worth it? Yes, but I can’t really say that with the confidence I hoped I could have in it.You won’t lose much by not watching it.

It’s a nice drama to watch for those not-so-into sageuks (historical dramas) – it’s like lots of the popular rom-coms these days, just a bit better and with a historical setting.

My favorite part was probably the younger days: perhaps Kim Yoojung looked like a fairy and Siwan was better-looking than his older counterpart.

Dream High 2: Just watch the performances and listen to the OSTs.

Not all dramas are as good as Dream High 2 at maintaining such a consistency. Equally slow, bland, and mediocre all throughout.

As I feared, there were way too many individual stories embedded in the drama for all of them to be executed well. Character development? Sorry, that time was used telling character xxx’s story. Plot development? Wait, we have to tell character yyy’s story too. Relationships? There was enough of that in Dream High, wasn’t there? The list goes on.

Save yourself fifteen hours. Just watch the performances and listen to the OSTs. You might not even need an hour’s time, seeing that Dream High 2 did pretty much skimp on those too.
