Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is a coming of age fusion sageuk drama serving cute romance as its main dish, friendship and growing-up as the close banchan (sides) and political issues as the garnishes. Its success is a MAJOR MAJOR surprise to everyone! Who would have thought this historical drama helm by 5 main casts under the age of 25 can beat out its competitor (I’m sure you know who). Certainly not me.
Tsk: Moonlight Drawn By Clouds concluded a week plus ago and since then I’ve been having a tough withdrawal. Didn’t know I will be feeling this way. To calm my soul, I’ve been following their news from fan sign event to wrap party to their Cebu vacation and now reading their post-drama interviews. I know I need to finish this review to give it a good closure. Certainly my love for this drama will go on forever! (or until another good one replaces it)
If there’s one show that have me laughing from start to finish week in week out, it got to be 1 Night 2 Days (1박2일; pronounce as il bag i il). If you’re not familiar with this show, well that’s because this is a Korean variety show. I couldn’t remember when I started watching 1N2D, it must’ve been somewhere around the Foreign Workers’ Special (episode 173) which aired early this year. FYI, 1N2D started its run on August 5, 2007. So you can imagine how much I’ve missed.
1 Night 2 Days is a tale of 5 lads spending an overnight trip touring interesting places in South Korea. I know this sounds so norm. But here are the beauty of this show: you get to see beautiful scenery and off the beaten track of the lands in South Korea (4 seasons of gorgeous Korea!), being introduced to lip-smacking Korean food (which makes me ‘lau hau sui’/salivate every time!) and immerse in the beautiful Korean culture. There are just so many things that make you go ga-ga over 1N2D.
