I’m at wits end when it comes to K-Bu Bu Jing Xin, this drama has definitely taken me on a roller coaster of ride and mostly in unsatisfying ways. It kept me hooked but more like a bender for bad for my health junk food. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo wraps up this week with Tuesday’s final episode 20, but first we need to wade through Monday’s penultimate episode 19 that got enough ratings at 9% to push the SBS drama back on top over The Man Living in Our House with 7.4% and 7.1% for Woman with a Suitcase.
Episode 19 had noble sacrifice suicide, a leading lady who seems to care more about everyone else than her man, some long overdue but unappreciated emo jealousy, and one giant breath of relief that a romance that should be stirring was put on hold. K-BBJX did more than it got credit for, namely a fantastic unforgettable performance by Lee Jun Ki and a deft touch in adapting the Qing dynasty story to Goryeo, but good lord is the very end crescendo fail hitting me like a sack of floppy fish bricks.
