Looks like The Moon that Embraces the Sun is plowing full speed ahead on the love triangle aspect of the story, which makes sense since it’s the best developed aspect of the narrative. I like to see Hwon and Wol talk more, and not constantly in King to shaman topic of conversation, but truly get to know each other. I don’t care if they loved each other as teenagers. Time changes a person and today they are now people who have experienced very different journeys in life. In essence, I need them to fall in love again, as opposed to transferring feelings from the past and using it to validate their feelings of the present. Poor Yang Myung better get some independently meaty storyline soon, because pining and searching for a long lost love is fast going nowhere other than render him pitiful and pointless. Looking forward to this weeks new episodes, hoping for more but content with whatever comes.
Preview for episode 11:
Nok Young: You really want to leave the Royal Astrology Office?
Wol: The things I can do….there isn’t even a single thing. To that person, who he needs is not me.
Bo Kyung: The shaman…..does she really look that much like the dead Heo family daughter?
Hwon: Her father will bring her medicine, and then she won’t be able to ever see me again?
Jang Shil: Little bit at a time, I want to give it all to orabeoni.
Yang Myung: I was in a lot of pain because of you, but I was also very happy because of you.
Hwon: I should have protected her, but there was no way to protect (her). There were many things I wanted to do for her, but I couldn’t do. I said that I really…..I really….love.
