Review: Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo (달의 연인-보보경심 려)

Go Ha Jin is transported back in time to the Goreyeo era during a solar eclipse. There she forms bonds with the princes but soon gets embroiled in the violence and politics of the fight for the throne.


Where do I start…If you’ve read my first impressions post on Scarlet Heart Ryeo here then you’d probably think that this is an extension of the previous post.

But I’ve decided to give SHR a try since my many-year k-drama hiatus and here is my first impression. I don’t normally do first impressions since I can’t be bothered and normally I’d want to quickly know what’s happened next rather than blog about it. But with SHR I just felt like I should. Don’t ask me why.
