  • There is a balance between your heart fluttering moments of pure fluff, moments that will make you laugh and the absolutely heart-wrenching moments.
  • Love in the Moonlight is a feel good series where you can laugh and cry at the same time.
  • The general performance of the whole cast was exemplary.
  • Park Bo Gum’s presentation of the crown prince Lee Young was all in all praise worthy. He was charming, and he can tell so many things with only the eyes.
  • Kwak Dong Yeon really captured my attention as Byung Yeon, the Guard that stole everyone’s hearts. The only character that made me actually cry.
  • I love the “Bromance” of Lee Yeong and Byung-yeon.
  • I like the chemistry of the main leads, they are exceedingly cute together. There is a “Kilig Factor” for me.
  • This drama has a very good collection of OST. My faves : Moonlight Drawn by Clouds by Gummy / My Person by Park Bo Gum
  • If you’re in the mood for a sweet love story that makes you happy, lighthearted and hopeful in the end and your a lovers of historical romantic dramas, I recommend you watch this drama.

My Rating: 8/10 (I became a K-drama fanatic because of this series.)
