Synopsis:

Based on the novel 해를 품은 달 (The Sun and The Moon) by Jung Eun Gwol (first published December 29, 2005), who is also the author of the novel that Sungkyunkwan Scandal was based on. "The Sun and The Moon” tells a love story between King Lee Hwon and a female shaman named Wol. Wol was born from a noble family and became the crown princess, but she was entrapped and faced execution. Finally, she lived as a shaman.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Characters:


Wol / Heo Yeon Woo (Han Ga In)

She was saved by a female shaman when she was young when she was plotted to be killed by the people who are both jealous and fearful of her beauty and wits when she was just a young girl. Having grown up to be a female shaman under the name of Wol (Moon), she re-encounters Lee Hwon whom she was once betrothed to. Upon noticing the many similiarities between Wol and Yeon Woo, Lee Hwon begins to fall for her. Lee Hwon’s half older brother, Yang Myung Gun who gets attracted to her kind nature begins to fall for her as well. Will she be able to survive when the suspicions are once are aroused that the supposely dead Yeon Woo is still alive?



Lee Hwon (Kim Soo Hyun)

Lee Hwon became a changed person after the killing of his betrothed, Yeon Woo. Not longer is he the kind-hearted boy that everyone in the palace/court used to like but a cold, hearted person who refused to love nor accept love no matter how hard Yoon Bo Gyung, the girl who had replaced Woo as his wife tries to win his heart. But his heart began to start beating again after his encounter with Wol who has lots of many similiarities with the already dead Yeon Woo.



Prince Yang Myung / Yang Myung Goon (Jung Il Woo)

His given title is Prince Yang Myung / Yang Myung Goon. He and Lee Hwon are half-brothers who have the same mother but different father. Due to Lee Hwon’s father being the king, the position of the crown prince was passed down to Lee Hwon although he is older in age, talented and more well mannered than Lee Hwon. And most likely because he is the elder brother, he is always trying to give in / not fight with his brother for anything. He projects an image of a playboy especially after the death of his first wife. But then with the appearance of Wol, he finds himself fighting for something he wants against his brother for the first time.



Yoon Bo Kyung / Queen Yoon (Kim Min Seo)

She became the first official wife of Lee Hwon after the death of Yeon Woo but received none of his love as a woman. Although she appears to be a kind and warm person, she hides her real face under the mask of lies and pretending to be nice.



Princess Min Hwa (Nam Bora)

Due to a childish streak of jealous towards Yeon Woo when they were young, Min Hwa unwittingly becomes involved in the plot to kill Yeon Woo. She has been carrying the guilty conscience ever since she knew that Yeon Woo was killed because of her childish act and hopes to make amends towards her family especially after marrying Yeom, Yeon Woo’s brother whom she loved with all her heart but he doesn’t even think of her as a woman to love after their marriage.



Heo Yeom (Song Jae Hee)

He is the elder brother of Yeon Woo who adores his sister dearly. Although he is marries Princess Min Hwa through an arranged marriage, his heart remains with "Sul” the serving maid of Yeon Woo whom he had grown up with, causing Min Hwa’s hatred of him of not thinking of her as a woman.



Sul [Snow] (Yoon Seung Ah)

She was the maid serving Yeon Woo before her supposed death and had grown up with both Yeom and Yeon Woo since they were young. She followed and served Wol who lost her memories, protecting her with the martial arts she learnt from the enemies who are out to harm her.



Woon (Song Jae Rim)

He is the loyal bodyguard of Lee Hwon who is cold on the outside but warm within. Although he is blessed with good looks, brains and fighting skills, he is faulted as being born as the son of a concubine which gives him a lowly status although he is the son of a nobleman.

I am thinking of watching this korean drama.... But I hope I can... coz I really don't have the patience of waiting for the english subtitles, so I usually watch Korean dramas that were already finished or already halfway. But since I love historical dramas... lol

[1/05] Update! Wow! The drama looks promising.... have seen episode 1... but still no subs... But I read the recap at Koala's playground to understand the episode without subs... But, I'm still waiting for the subs... Hope a subbing group will pick this up. Can't wait for episode 2. How I really wish the novel has a complete english version. (sigh)

[1/09] I just read the chapter 4 of the book here and I am craving for more. This will be an epic story! I really love sageuk!

[2/11]
I moved the random novel translations in one page.... Just click the link below.... Also if you like, I made some photo manipulations of some of my favorites scenes in the drama.... See the photos if you like... Thanks!

[2/15]Episode 13 for me is a bit slowwwwwwww pace.... But I heard Episode 14 will be a turning point of the drama.... Maybe Wol will regain her memory?.... And I also heard that there will be a 4 episodes extension! Alright! I think the extension is really needed in order to develop the story and so that they could include more character development.... And have you seen the preview of Episode 14? I'm excited to see the episode later....

[2/16] OMG! I watched the live telecast of TMETS and today's episode is really awesome! I was right in keeping my faith intact with this drama. The slow pace in the previous episodes has been compensated by today's episode. Highlight if you want a spoiler for episode 14 -->Well, Wol really gained back her memories. I like her determined face at the end of the episode. Guys! Yeon Woo is back! I must say, Ha Ga In totally nailed this episode...I can't wait for episode 15!!!! Recap has been updated for Episode 14..

I noticed you had the book zip on top but I was unable to dl it. Is it possible for me to get a copy?

6 Wow   (2012-January-10 12:06 PM)
Hmmm... What do you mean? Are you talking about the translated version of the book?

I am so interested in this drama, I've watched the episodes at least twice and I constantly reread the recaps. Yang Myung and Yeon Woo are SOOO cute together. I think Yang Myung and Hyon share the same father but different mothers. Hyon's mother is the empress, while Yang Myung's mother is a royal consort.

3 Wow   (2012-January-09 9:55 AM)
Yes! The child actors are incredible! Right now I am shipping for Yang Myung-Yeon Woo too. love Hahaha...

I believe you are right. (Sorry, I made a mistake in the name... It is supposed to be Hwon not Hyon... I corrected that now...) Hwon is from the queen and Yang Myung is from a royal noble consort... And although Yang Myung is older he is not the crown prince because her mother is lower in rank than Hwon's mother who is a queen.

I love love LOVE sagueks and this is one I INTED to watch but, it's been 5 days since it premiered isn't it a little strange that NO ONE has sub'd it yet, Wild Romance premiered the same day and that's already sub'd and History of a Salary man also is sub'd why isn't Moon Sun???

4 Wow   (2012-January-09 10:03 AM)
