    I got just 1 qns… isnt Hwangbo Yeonhwa and 3rd Prince wang yo siblings? Why did Wang Yo say he will make her the queen?

    silverswan Says:

    The drama was good and with all the well known great actors and actresses. But its kind of sad all the way and not a good ending. It made you cry in most of the episodes. People vote for it I guess of all the grat actors inside there, but I do not like the ending and also why must the King marry the woman he does not love ..kind of following the rules for those who have rankings
    Overall superb story except the ending

    tigerb Says:

    @Rm #551: they are half siblings, same father different mothers. if you read the comments above, apparently unions between siblings was allowed. the third prince then was wanting the support from his half-sister’s family, if they were to be married, so he can become king. they did not get married, but the third prince became king. yeonhwa was very ambitious to become queen and got married to the 4th prince, who was the 3rd prince’s full brother. did i say too much to spoil your viewing? sorry! i hope you finish the series and enjoy it.

    tigerb Says:

    @silverswan #552: i think this korean version could not do much about the ending as it is patterned from the chinese original. as to its popularity to be the first in this poll, i think most votes come from outside s.k. and you maybe right, the fans voted for it because the actors are their idols. as to the king marrying someone he did not love, that is a fact in history, portrayed in this drama but in actuality also happened in many kingdoms in the past. politics, that was how to survive.

    nomadiclurker Says:

    #552 based on your logic, sad ending drama doesn’t deserve a vote. That’s unfair. Drama is a whole package.
    Even though it doesn’t have happy ending, the journey is beautiful.

    Jao Lee Says:

    I am an international fan. Lee Joon Gi might be my forever favorite but I did not like the drama just because I like him though i am a bit biased but his acting should really be applauded. In all his works you can really see his prowess in acting especially when relaying heavy emotions just by the twitch of his eyes or mouth without saying anything. Although I really wanted a happy ending for the drama I guess they couldnt change the ending as it is what happened on the chinese version but in my opinion thats what makes it more alluring for me bcoz the drama is not a clichè one where you already know what is gonna happen and you just get bored when you reach the last couple of episodes. With Moon Lovers hell no i don’t even want it to end like can they get 30episodes or more like the chinese version?lol and i don’t think its popularity is mainly bcoz idols have a wide fan base coz a lot of kpop idols are also in kdramas too and not all get this kind of popularity.

    jeannette h.angot Says:

    As for me this is my favorite kdrama of 2016,i’ve watched a lot of kdramas but SHR is different,all the cast did very well in their respective roles specially IU who is a new comer when it comes to historical drama,as a first timer in historical drama she is superb and deserves an acting award for this,although koreans didn’t appreciate it well but internationally it was a huge success and everybody was talking about it all over social media and also there is this petition made by someone requesting the concerned producer for a season 2,and the soundtracks were all good and everybody are loving it,although it has an open ending and still hoping for a closure to it,for me it was a good journey for all the casts and to all of us…

    Damn this story, it has been non stop sorrow and tears watching. You cheer for so many and then learn to hate them, only to feel so much loneliness when they are gone. I loved this show and also hated watching it because it was so painful. The actors were wonderful and the end was the most painful when Hae Soo went back to her life as Go Ha Jin,her loneliness and seeing Wang So alone was almost too much to take.

    Jmar Says:

    Awesome 😍. I like this drama. Really nice that it was played by great and best actors and actresses. Good job to the director and to his/ her companies.
    Looking forward that IU and Lee Jun ki will have another drama in the future playing the leading role as the played this moon lovers.
    Being a lover and fan of this drama, I am waiting that season 2 will be considered.
    Thank you.

    princecoolio Says:

    Well This is not a movie of Scarlet,Because the Chinese used a dynasty with real people from history. All the princes were real, This Korean Version has only 2. The 4th prince, & The king. Rest are fake. For Chinese version was right by using real people in the drama. This is just part of Korean history with out all the real people. To much made up.

    princecoolio Says:

    Ah I found the sight page for the drama.
    http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Moon_Lovers:_Scarlet_Heart_Ryeo. show the whole list and the names. it’s not not better than the real 1 in Chinese. Korean or any Country that remakes a movie or drama doesn’t make any since to me. I always would not agree with my brother on this. I really dislike remakes from other writer ect ect ect !!!!
