Looking back on August, it has been a trying month for Park Bo Gum for many reasons. Initially, I didn’t care about the ratings, but when the ridiculous incident broke out, and as time drew near, I find myself praying hard that Moonlight Drawn by Clouds would come forth as gold. Therefore, I could not be any happier when this week’s rating took a huge leap, and double in numbers. Of course, this jaw-dropping numbers could not be achieved if it were not for the whole production team (casts and crews). It still feels surreal, and as if I have witnessed a miracle. But most importantly, this could not be a better encouragement for what Bo Gum had gone through, and for this, I sincerely hope some weight has now been taken off his shoulder (and chest) from this week onward.
Episode 5 Preview
Seja asks Ra On what she is doing, and Ra On sheepishly hides the hair accessory underneath piles of books. Er… I think uri smart Seja has saw it.
Disgusting Minister Park asks Ambassador Mok if there is any woman he is fond of. He says he finds the lady who did the solo dance cute. OH NO!!!
So did Eunuch Ma hears it?? I cannot tell. He narrows his eyes at Ra On and says out loud, “… more beautiful than a gisaeng”. Uh Oh. So do you guys think he knows Ra On is a girl, or he thinks Ra On is a eunuch that pretends as a girl that night?
Yoon Sung asks Young what is his reason for agreeing to be a regent ruler. Young bluntly tells him he wants to remove the power of the Andong clan in Joseon.
Yoon Sung is shocked to hear it, and we can see it in his eyes. Awww, can’t you two just make up and be BFF again, like it used to be?
Dugu seyo? In a voiceover (I can’t tell), this dude tells Byung Yeon not to forget that he is not Seja’s friend. WHAAAT? Did I hear him right?
Omoya. What’s this???
Byung Yeon sees Seja staring at Ra On in sleep. He has blood on his face, and he is visibly injured, BAD. Seja, get out of there right now and treat your chingu!!
These two are having a competition on ‘Whose eyes are the biggest and most beautiful’…
Just kidding. Seja is obviously suspicious of Ra On, and trying to reason with himself. However, it is true that people says the eyes are the window to the soul, and uri Seja recognises those eyes. The voiceover sounds like Seja is scolding himself for thinking silly things.
Hurray. Ra On and Seja go out of the palace, and they make a wish together with the lantern. As per the text preview, Yoon Sung interrupts them later.
Seja buys all the lanterns for everyone who doesn’t have money, and signals the little girl to give one to Jo Ha Yeon (future Crown Princess) because she lost her purse.
Ha Yeon looks smitten. Ah crap. Looks like it’s all Seja’s own fault. He unintentionally overuses the remaining honey, and attracted an ant. *Face-palm*
Kim Hun is up to no good again, and plotting to create some havoc.
Oooh ooohhhh! The water scene is coming up. How exciting! Ra On falls into the river (pond?), and looks like our hero is going to save his girl. In the novel, Ra On and the princess did fall into the river but they were not drowning, so I cannot be sure if the drama will follow the book closely.
Moonlight Drawn by Clouds airs every Monday – Tuesday at 10 pm KST on KBS2.
