Despite its low viewer ratings during initial run, 'Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo' is some netizens' life drama?

IU, Lee Jun Ki, Kang Ha Neul
The end of 2016 to the first half of 2017 was full of a variety fusion, youth historical dramas, while the second half is comparably dry in the historical drama field in favor of more modern, relatable genres. 

Which may be why some netizens have struck up a conversation about a drama which aired back in August of 2016 - 'Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo'. The Korean remake of a Chinese novel starring IU, Lee Jun Ki, Kang Ha Neul, and more witnessed relatively low viewer ratings for the duration of its 20-episode run, the highest being at 11.3% for its final episode, and the lowest going as low as 5.1%. 

But one netizen recently took to an online community to confess, "The ratings may have been low, but those who've seen it know. It's truly sad and heart-wrenching and I cried every time I watched it. It's my life's drama." 

And a huge amount of netizens agreed to the confession! Others said, "As someone who watched both 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds' and this, I preferred 'Moon Lovers'", "I cried and cried when I watched this during its run, and then marathoned it 5 more times", "My mom kept marathoning this drama after she watched it the first time", "Because 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds' was in the same time slot, I started by watching the main broadcast of 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds' and watched re-runs of 'Moon Lovers', but then I ended up switching it the other way after a while. Seriously my life's drama", "It's good and it's sad and I personally love tear jerkers so I enjoyed this a lot", "I don't like dramas but 'Moon Lovers' is my life's drama, it's still my phone background", and more!

Netizens who have not watched 'Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo' expressed their curiosity at the hot topic, and said that they will give it a try soon. However, fans recommended that if you're a student, you absolutely must not watch it during school term, but wait until break or vacation.
