A Few Flaws Can’t Stop The Sun and The Moon’s Smooth Sailing
A few noticeable flaws spotted in an otherwise well-made drama have caused viewers to laugh/cringe.
The currently airing traditional drama The Sun and The Moon has been receiving high praise and high viewership ratings - and with success always comes attention.
Viewers spotted a mistake in the scene where crown prince Lee Hwon played ball with Yang Myeong who came to the royal court for the first time in a long time.
In the moment when Lee Hwon falls after a courtier tackles him, a staff member filming the scene was captured on television. The staff member stood out conspicuously as he was wearing a down jacket in the midst of child actors wearing Korean traditional clothing. And plus he had a camera. Which didn′t exist back then.
That wasn′t the only time a bit of modern clothing aired in the drama. In a scene where people are watching fireworks, Heo Yeom (Im Si Wan of ZE:A) was caught covering his legs with a black padded jacket. Guess it was cold that day.
Funnily enough, Si Wan himself tweeted the photo of his pants, writing, "A proof shot of Heo Yeom′s padding!!! Everyone, sorry;; On this day, my padding was so loveable. So...I hugged it tight!!!! Next time, no matter how loveable my padding is, I′ll make sure to not make it so obvious on the broadcast. ^^"
Netizens who caught these flaws showed various reactions from “It′s as fun as spotting the flaw in the drama Jewel in the Palace (another traditional drama) when a gas burner was in the kitchen” (first photo, bottom half) to “It’s fun to detect a flaw in the crystal” and “It’s a shame that they didn’t pay more attention to details.”
Meanwhile, the January 11 broadcast of The Sun and The Moon recorded a whopping 23.2 percent in viewership ratings according to AGB Nielsen Research, capturing a solid no.1 spot among programs aired in the same time slot.
That same day, KBS2’s Wild Romance saw its ratings drop from 6.7 percent to 6.4 percent from a week earlier while SBS’ Take Care of Us, Captain’s ratings fell to 9.4 percent from 10.5 percent.
