KBS Mon-Tues Youth Sageuk Moonshine with Yoo Seung Ho and Hyeri Premieres to Promising 7.5% Ratings and Positive Viewer First Impression

Okay, I’ve just gotten up from collapsing on the bed in major relief. I so wanted this drama to be good, do well too of course but be good is most important, because another bad Yoo Seung Ho drama and my well will probably have run dry. The first episode of newly arrived youth sageuk Moonshine (Thinking of the Moon When the Flowers Bloom) took over the KBS Mon-Tues slow from The King’s Affection and actually had a promising start. It garnered 7.5% ratings and more importantly positive feedback! Viewers found Hyeri not bad as the concerns with her enunciation and she was actually quite charming and delivered on point comedy, and of course Yoo Seung Ho was swinging into action perfectly with his comfortable perch in sageuk land. Even Byun Woo Seok got good reviews for not sucking right off the bat and has a fun and crazy prince character to entertain viewers with. So far so good at the outset so let’s see if episode two continues the momentum.

    • Wonder why ms k won’t write any further reviews of moonshine. Ending next week. Ratings tanking again to lowest. Ysh is her love obsession. Same as My Strange Hero. No review of finale.

  1. It benefit from the TKA which finished at 12%. If the ratings continue to rise then congratulations to the cast and crew.

    KBS seems to be doing better than SBS.

  2. Episodes 13-14 had lowest ratings 3.8-4.9%. Winter olympics kill it. At least better reporting than MSH which was completely ignored.

  3. The reviews are mostly negative in other sites. Bad writing, weak plot, bland acting. Even hardcore fans are struggling to hang on. Plenty of complaints about alcohol plot dragging.

  4. I hope koala will write a recap of moonshine. Imo, he’s doing too many rom-coms. He should go back to playing a villain like missing you. Not getting any younger at 29 this year. So many younger and older actors have surpassed him. Please choose better roles seung ho ah. Fighting.
