Korean Remake of Bu Bu Jing Xin is Determined to Destroy My Existence with Pretty (posters galore!)

Tuesday, August 09, 2016

As summer slowly starts coming to an end (sadface), the highly-anticipated K-remake of the beloved Chinese fusion sageuk Bu Bu Jing Xin readies for August 29th premiere (happyface). 

The talk of Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo (boy, is there anything else they want to add in this title?) first began back in September last fall and it's development has been observed with both curiosity and caution by fans of the original series over the last year. But now, finally, the drama is nearing it's actual air-date. 

The premise of the drama is quite straightforward: A young woman (played by IU) travels back in time to Goryeo era and becomes entangled in a major love, I guess heptagon? of sorts as she manages to make all the pretty young princes (Lee Jun Ki, Kang Ha Neul, Hong Jong Hyun, Byun Baek Hyun, Yoon Sun Woo, Nam Joo Hyuk and Ji Soo) fall in love with her. I might not be the most reliable source, though, as I've never seen the original and barely know anything about it. In fact, I just found out today that it's essentially a time-travel drama. But the basic premise is still this: 7 swoony princes and one confused girl. Much heartbreak potential.

Since Moon Lovers is a 100% pre-produced drama, there seems to be less worry that it'll be trainwreck remake because it does seem like a lot of effort and money has been put into it. Of course, you can never be sure about how it all comes together on screen, especially acting and writing-wise. 

In any case, judging by the recently released posters and stills AND taking into account the fact that the series is directed by Kim Kyu Tae, whose dramas are notoriously gorgeous, we're definitely in for a grand visual experience. If the cinematography won't amaze you, the beautiful cast surely will. IU looks frail and beautiful like a flower, Lee Jun Ki shoots sexy brooding eyes at us, Kang Ha Neul is downright dreamy and rest of the princes are just more than we deserve. Hopefully, the drama will be as pretty inside as it seems to be on the outside.

As said, Moon Lovers will premiere on August 29th, taking over the SBS's Monday & Tuesday 22:00 time slot currently occupied by Doctors.
