Korean Drama Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo Surpasses 2 Billion Views in China

Scarlet Heart Goryeo Korean Drama - Lee Joon Gi

While the epic drama Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo starring Lee Joon Gi and IU has now concluded, last week it reached another huge milestone. It officially surpassed 2 billion views on the popular Chinese streaming site Youku! That is huge!

Another big congratulations to the entire cast and production team of Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo! Lee Joon Gi posted his surprise and thanked his fans on Instagram. Check out the post here.

The drama posted disappointing ratings in its home country of Korea for the first half of its run, but it steadily improved throughout its second half. I’m glad it was able to end on a good note in Korea. And I’m thrilled how successful the drama was in China and internationally. Congratulations!

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo is a remake of the popular Chinese drama Scarlet Heart and tells the story of a modern day woman who travels back in time to the Goryeo era and gets romantically involved with several princes.

    I dropped it very early on and I’m glad I did because the ending was very disappointing!

      Aww, that’s too bad. A lot of us really loved the drama including the ending. I definitely loved the last episode and found it beautiful, tragic, and gripping all the way through to the end. It’s honestly one of the better kdrama last episodes I’ve seen. So I was very happy overall. Hopefully, you have better luck with your next drama 🙂

    Expectations that are too high can certainly ruin a perfectly good drama. There was so much I loved about this drama, especially Lee Joon Gi’s truly spectacular performance. Weirdly enough, I found myself disappointed that the last episode didn’t include a scene with Wang So in the present time, even though I thought it was a silly ending in the Chinese version. I find myself strangely frustrated by poor editing that I would have found adequate in another drama. I gotta manage those expectations better.

      They certainly can! That’s why a good drama you go into with no expectations can surprise you and really make a great impression. Whereas a drama you hoped would be phenomenal can feel disappointing when it ends up just good. I think I’ve gotten pretty good at managing expectations though. I mentioned a few times back before Scarlet Heart aired that I certainly hoped it would be outstanding (you can’t help but get a little excited sometimes, especially for Lee Joon Gi), but I was confident it would at least be decent and I would be happy with that. Luckily, it was much better than decent for me, so I’m more than happy. Here’s my tip: expect every drama to be average and then when it’s great it will really surprise you and make you happy, lol 🙂
