It’s December which means KBS is mere weeks away from premiering its flower boy sageuk Hwarang in the Mon-Tues time slot. The network hit a homerun this year already with youth romance sageuk Moonlight Drawn by Clouds but this one is different from tone to narrative conceit.

It doesn’t even seen homoerotic, more boys being idiots together. The ridiculous hairstyles look less awkward when the male leads are in motion rather than doing the mannequin challenge for poster shooting.
