Moon Lovers OST Part 1 is sang by Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin of EXO. I think they should rename this drama to “IU and her harem”, haha. Moon Lovers is an adaptation of Chinese drama Bu Bu Jing Xin, the immensely popular hit back in 2011 starring Nicky Wu and Liu Shi Shi (who are now married!). I am excited for this drama to air, because Bu Bu Jing Xin is one of my favorite Cdramas.
My main concern is that the Korean adaptation may not be able to capture all the subtlety of the dysfunctional and flawed relationship between the two leads and instead turn this drama into Reverse Harem Heaven, but I remain optimistic. After all, I trust IU’s acting (she did a wonderful job portraying Cindy in The Producers).
Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo stars IU, Lee Junki, Kang Haneul, Baekhyun (EXO), and Nam Joo Hyuk. It airs in 5 days (yay!) on August 29, 2016.
