A Time-Traveler Appears in Hit Drama “The Moon that Embraces the Sun”


MBC’s “The Moon that Embraces the Sun” set another personal record for viewership ratings with yesterday’s episode, achieving 24.9% (AGB Nielsen). The fifth episode was a tearjerker as Yeonwoo (Kim Yoo Jung) was cursed and fell ill, eventually getting kicked out of the palace. As she suffered through her illness, her father, mother, and brother were flooded sadness and helplessness as no doctor could diagnose her disease. Yeon Woo’s father eventually sends Heo Yeom (ZE:A’s Im Si Wan) to a relative’s, stating that because he is the Crown Prince’s teacher, he must stay as far away from the disease.

Several viewers were given a slight break from the emotional roller coaster as they noticed yet another anachronism in the scene where Yeom reluctantly obeys his father and mournfully leaves his sister behind. Apparently, a random woman in modern-day clothes was captured in the frame.  

Netizens commented, “She’s a time-traveler” and “Am I the only one who misses these mistakes? How can anyone spot them when they go by so fast?”

Meanwhile, many fans and netizens are excited for tonight’s episode, as Kim Soo Hyun, Han Ga In, Jung Il Woo, and others will finally make their grand appearance. “The Moon that Embraces the Sun” will air its sixth episode tonight on MBC at 9:55PM KST. Check out the preview here.
