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.
