Korean Drama Review: Love in the Moonlight

Posted on at

Hello Everyone! Today, I will be sharing to you another amazing Korean Drama. This drama is one of the Best Historical Dramas I have ever seen <3. The title of this drama is LOVE IN THE MOONLIGHT or MOONLIGHT DRAWN BY CLOUDS starring Park Bo Gum, Jung Jin Young and Kim Yoo Jung. I highly recommend this drama if you really like romance and comedy and also because this is one of my personal favorite Korean TV show at the moment. :)

After hearing about this drama from my friends I thought it was the same with the other dramas where the lead actress pretends to be a boy because he likes someone in an all Boys school or what-so-ever (hehe) but it isn’t. In this drama the lead actress lived as a boy all her life because of a particular reason which I will be sharing to you below. And this drama is also interesting because it really makes you wonder why such things happened. Some parts are predictable but there are other parts that will really be shocking and will give you goosebumps ;) So please continue reading this blog to get further information and to know more about the flow of the Story. And also one of the best things about this drama is their Soundtracks and I will be sharing it below so please check it out.

Enjoy Reading! :)
