A.k.a Moon Lovers or whatever the official English title. As a drama lover and fan of the original version, I admit that at the beginning I was a little mad about the drama. Mad as in crazy, then mad as in angry. Although we are only up to Episode 7, the drama has already evoked more emotion in me than some with more episodes. Part of it is due to my overspilling feelings for Bu Bu Jing Xin, which was a beautifully written piece of art.
So when you remake something that was so popular, of course expectations are going to go through the roof. Of course people are going to compare and contrast with the original. In fact, I enjoy thinking back to the original and how the kdrama has adapted it. Some things I liked, some really drove me crazy.
