Currently Watching: Moonlight Drawn By Clouds aka Love in the Moonlight

b3ebrjx4_36b096_f

I’m pretty sure, PRETTY PRETTY SURE, that by now you know my intense obsession, I’m not kidding, with Park Bo Gum. I’ve seen him a few times before but never as an OTP. I even joke around one day that all I see (when he smiles) is his teeth. At the time, my heart was not moved by him. He was just another puppy to me. Then the Bombastic clip happens. My jaw was on the floor for a minute but then, I moved on. The first episode flew by and I was feeling good. The second episode passed by and I was still calm. By the fourth episode, I was completely smitten, head over heel, ready to dump all my biases for Park Bo Gum! I have never felt this intense feeling in my entire life! I see Gummy everywhere. He’s with me in the office, he’s with me when making dinner, he’s with me when watching other dramas, he’s on my reports too…! Oy, I’m having Gummy fever. I don’t think I will recover from this. I’m this close to writing a stalking post but thank’s to kfangurl, I don’t need it anymore. God, now I have a second thought. Dang it!

Because I love everything Gummy and all I see is Gummy in this drama, I intend to do something different for this post. I just want to ogle him *giggle* and so, this post will be video clip heavy! What, you can’t expect me to calm down after what I wrote, right? It has to be a fantabulous post for bubblyGummylicious!

Yes, my Gummy is the Crown Prince. And Yoo Jung baby is Eunuch Hong Sam Nom but her real name is Hong Ra On. She crossed dressing as a man but not on her own will. She was forced to do so due to her mom’s request. She never knew the reason why. As a child, she trusted and obeyed her mom. Atta girl!

Prior to becoming the palace eunuch, Ra On was a dating doctor. She helped men write love letters. As a woman, she knows what women want to hear. Hence, she got so popular among men in love. Through this, she got to meet the Crown Prince Lee Yeong. By this time, I was completely sold. Lee Yeong is a funny scholar guy. He and Ra On became close but the Prince was not aware that Ra On, or rather Sam Nom, is a woman. And Ra On did not know Lee Yeong’s royal identity! Well, this is where the fun began!

Unfortunate for Sam Nom, she was caught by Lee Yeong’s cousin, Kim Yoon Sung. The man known to hang out around brothel could smell Ra On’s ladylike move. He immediately became attracted to her and tried to protect her from Lee Yeong. Sadly he failed. Ra On got summoned to work under Lee Yeong. Fine by me! But… when Lee Yeong revealed his true identity to her. Omona omona omona!

So how their relationship turned out to be? As you have guessed it, it turned out just fine! More than fine! Lee Yeong and Sam Nom became really closed. Their relationship blossomed so strong that they became the talk of the palace! The Queen Mother, Lee Yeong’s step mom, got suspicious and hinted gay rumor. Of course, it is natural to accuse when two men spending time like lovers. But something happened. Queen Mother wanted to humiliate Lee Yeong in front of the public. She bribed the performing dancer for Lee Yeong’s event and sent her away. The Head of Eunuch for Lee Yeong’s household was panicking. Thankfully… Ra On came to the rescue. But…

Lee Yeong heard about his missing dancer but was stunned by the substitute dancer. He wondered who stepped in. Her eyes reminded him of someone. He was not sure. Could it be Sam Nom? After all, “he” was the only person who knew the dance steps by hard. But the thought was shut down when he found Sam Nom in his room finishing up her assigned work. Somehow, Lee Yeong couldn’t sit still after the night’s event. He eventually found out her identity… Was he angry? Was he mad?

*sings Love is a star….* In the beginning, he thought he was crazy to love another man. But when he found out that he is in love with a woman, he grinned from ear to ear. But along with the discovery of her name, her identity started to reveal. She is a daughter of a wanted man. Her father is a rebel and a traitor to the country. Sam Nom eventually realized who she is and decided to take a leave. Poor Lee Yeong, he really did not want to separate from her.

So what happened next? Well, this happened… *laughs*

And this…

And of course… we must not forget this *wink*

Meanwhile, while Ra On is gone the politics continue on as usual. The King was weak and had  no choice but to create an ally with another minister. The Prime Minister is a vicious man and this forced the King to marry Lee Yeong away. I was sadden by this… To watch him marry someone he didn’t love was, and still is, painful. My heart hurts badly!

Episode 15 was my last episode of Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. Since then, I have been extremely busy with traveling for work, moving to my new home, selling my old home, working, and being a housewife and mom. Life is a pain. I finally able to breathe and blog this. Also, I’m surprised that even though the show has ended for a while, I have managed to avoid spoilers. I have seen photos here and there but I just couldn’t really connect the dots.

What do I expect for the next three episodes? I don’t know what to expect. Knowing that it is a happy ending for our Prince and his girlfriend, I assume the wedding did not take place. I also assume that someone or perhaps the Crown Prince himself was able to shake some sense over King’s head. However, my biggest fear is Ra On. She is a traitor’s daughter so did they turn this around and accept her as Prince’s girlfriend and maybe, I don’t know, his wife?

As you can tell, I pretty much ignore other characters. You can watch it yourself. I’m for the OTP and they are the center of my attention. This 18 episode drama is great and also exceptional in today’s Korean drama world. It started as a typical gender bender drama but the development of the story as you go deeper and deeper it makes you really hook on it even more. Park Bo Gum and his many faces took this drama to a whole new level. There is no awkward in his acting even thought he is not a season actor and also inexperienced in historical drama. His acting gig is definitely rising now thanks to this drama. He is certainly an actor worth watching from now on. I look forward to his future project.

As you know, I’m not a sageuk fan. But the romance got me intrigued. Even the politics got me curious. I know some of the watchers don’t follow much of the politics but I feel that it is one of the important elements of this drama. I admit the story gets a bit draggy after episode 12. But it did not matter to me as you know why *giggles*.

Before I end, I will leave My Person, the final song of the great soundtrack from this drama. The song is performed by none other than our Prince Gummy. Please, this is not the only songs I love. I actually love the entire soundtrack. The songs are easy to my ears and for sure, easy on yours, too. Please do give them a hear.

By this time, it is clear that I’m all for Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. I am sure you get my hint, right? If you have not seen it, what are you waiting for? WATCH IT!

  1. PARK BO-GUM! And all other wonderful, beautiful superlatives follow his name ❤️ I personally wasn’t convinced falling in love with him as Lee Yeong, as Choi Taek is near and dear to my heart, but he did it again in true Bogummy fashion!

    Like you I have to admit that the central conflict got draggy in the middle, and it got a wee bit dramatic for my taste? It picks up on the last 2 episodes IMO. A lot of viewers seem satisfied and happy with the ending like I was. Can’t wait to see your tweets on it 🤗

    • I tweeted! I adore the ending but the time jump was too much. I wanted to see their royal wedding! And the time between Lee Yeong and Ra On on the last episode was too short. I need it to be longer!

      I know you rave about Taek way too often now. I shall pick up where I left of. Finally have the time to watch dramas again 🙂
