Review Lovers of the Red Sky 홍천기 The Best Korean Drama 2021

I absolutely adore this drama. So much negativity in the comments really leaves me speechless. There is a beautiful subtlety to the character development and the scenery and music is just breathtaking. I don’t consider it draggy or boring or simple. It is on my top 5 list of dramas to re-watch. The storyline alone is so refreshing. I’ve watched hundreds of asian dramas and so many have lifeless or over produced tropey storylines. Full stars for originality.

There are many historical dramas with amazing romance such as rookie historian for a light hearted drama and six flying dragons, empress ki for serious ones. Also some Chinese dramas like good bye my princess and one and only have really good historical romance. I really would not consider this as a good example of romantic drama in historical times. Even the leads hardly have any chemistry between them. But we as people have different taste. Maybe this is up to ur liking.
