Reviews movie Moon Lovers – Scarlet Heart: Ryeo Korean Drama Eng sub
1 - i only watched this cuz i recognized you from comments on other things i like (i wasn't sure since im not much for historical/romance either way) and from now on I WILL WATCH/READ ANYTHING WITH YOUR COMMENTS I TRUST YOU AVOCADO-SAMA
2 - I feel like I too have become a follower of the avocado that will see if you have commented to make sure it's worth a watch XD So far it's happened twice and I have loved both series, so let's see if it works a third time!
3 - I keep rewatching and pausing the scenes where the camera is on Wang So and i keep staring at him and contemplating him, he is so beautiful & every single expression of him is magic
4 - I agree that people shouldn't bash IU and stay for the male actors. IMO, she's not totally terrible and actually made the Producers worth watching. Other than the Producers I haven't seen her in anything, but she made me root for her character more than I rooted for Gong Hyo-jin and Cha Tae-hyun, which says something. People who can't stand her but stick around for the men, only to bash her should take several seats.
However, "If she wasn’t good at acting, she would have never been in this drama in the first place!" Dramas cast bad actors all the time, whether for that extra boost of popularity or company pushing or simply to have a pretty face to bring in the views. I'm not saying that this is IU's case, I'm just trying to put that out there.
