The era of “The Moon that Embraces the Sun,” which had given KBS and SBS dark/ominous times, is slowly fading away.
On March 14th, MBC’s 20 episode Wed-Thurs drama, “The Moon that Embraces the Sun,” finally reached its end.

Because of the recent circumstances (MBC’s success), SBS’s Wed-Thurs drama “Rooftop Prince’s” PR department is promoting “Rooftop Prince” more than ever [to try to combat MBC]. Because of the main actors,JYJ’s Park Yoochun and actress Han Ji Min, there is already hot anticipation from fans. Word of mouth from the network is that the script is good and because the Joseon King’s fantasty-romance piece is similar to “The Moon that Embraces the Sun,” the plan/hope is that viewers of “The Moon that Embraces the Sun” would transfer their attention to “Rooftop Prince.”
Participating alongside “Rooftop Prince” is MBC’s drama “King 2 Hearts,” which, because of the lineup of “invincible” actress Ha Ji Won, will be slightly tough for “Rooftop Prince” (to receive top viewer ratings). However, because there is such high appraisal of the script for “Rooftop Prince,” there are high expectations from within the network. Because “Rooftop Prince” is similar to “The Moon that Embraces the Sun,” it’s forecasted that it will not be “trampled over” by “King 2 Hearts.”
SBS’s “Rooftop Prince” and MBC’s “King 2 Hearts” will both air their first episodes on March 21st.
