Amusing Anachronisms in Kim Soo Hyuns The Moon that Embraces the Sun

Amusing Anachronisms in Kim Soo Hyun’s “The Moon that Embraces the Sun”

MBC’s latest drama, “The Moon that Embraces the Sun,” is off to a hot start, surpassing 20% viewership ratings by the third episode even without the main leads. While viewers were taken away with the charismatic acting by child actors and the strong plot, some keen fans spotted flaws in two scenes in yesterday’s episode.

In an overhead shot where Crown Prince Lee Hwon (Yeo Jin Goo) was playing soccer with his friends, two cameramen and a camera were captured on screen. In another, Huh Yeom (ZE:A’s Siwan) had his padded jacket over his knees. The jacket was an anachronism in the Joseon Dynasty where everyone wore hanbok.

Netizens commented, “I totally missed it, but I can’t believe others saw that,” “It’s a fusion historical drama, so I  guess they had state-of-the-art technology back then,” and “I was too focused on the drama to really notice.”

Meanwhile, the drama achieved 23.2% viewership rating, a 3.3% increase from last Thursday. Lee Dong Wook’sWild Romance” and Gu Hye Sun’sPlease Take Care of Us Captain” recorded 6.4% and 9.4% respectively. 

The fourth episode of "The Moon that Embraces the Sun" will air tonight, January 12, on MBC at 9:55PM KST.

Song Joong Ki was Offered Kim Soo Hyun's role in "The Moon that Embraces the Sun"

Song Joong Ki was Offered Kim Soo Hyuns role in The Moon that Embraces the Sun On the April 22 broadcast of tvNs E News, it was reported that Song Joong Ki was originally offered Kim Soo Hyuns role in the hit drama, The Moon that Embraces the Sun. Song Joong Ki declined the role of the Joseon King Lee Hwon because it was too similar to the role that Song Joong Ki had just played in  Tree with Deep Roots as King Sejong. 

Song Joong Ki had made headlines with his royal role in the 2011 drama because of his charismatic and powerful portrayal of the young Sejong. The role was even touted as the rediscovery of Song Joong Ki and led to his lead role in the fall 2012 hit drama, Nice Guy. Before Song Joong Ki became a nice guy, however, he was offered the role of Lee Hwon for The Moon that Embraces the Sun, which he declined. Kim Soo Hyun took the role instead and The Moon Embraces the Sun became a huge national hit in the earlier half of 2012, reaching over 40% in television ratings. It also made Kim Soo Hyun a household name with commercials and scripts flooding in to his agency.

Interestingly enough, Kim Soo Hyun is quoted to have stated Song Joong Kis portrayal of King Sejong as a model for his role as Lee Hwon.
