Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo (2016)

Both female leads are sent back in time. Although there are huge plot difference between the two dramas, they share a similar sense of direction. They both start very light-heartedly and joyful only to go down a much deeper path with an emotional twist. However, the time travel aspect is a heavier story element in Faith than it is in Moon Lovers, but still, Moon Lovers is pretty entertaining without having to surround its' plot around time travelling.

Both of these dramas feature a similar mix of poignant political (mostly historically accurate) intrigue, life and death situations, and a passionate romance at its core. Therefore they give of a similar feel.

Both tell a story about founding a kingdom. Moon Lovers is based on the beginning of the Goryeo dynasty while Six Flying dragons is based on the foundation of the Joseon dynasty.

Both dramas have a similar vibe to them, be it the plot or the acting. Both dramas will make you smile and cry a lot. The music & cinematography in both dramas is also superb.

One of the main leads in both dramas travel back in time by falling into water, but Go Princess Go puts an extra twist to the concept with it being a guy waking up in a girls body, which kinda adds another dimension to the ensuring love story. However, neither lead seems to be overly concerned to have traveled in time and neither tries to intentionally (yet) change any course of action in history (such as e.g. Faith) while being perceived as a bit weird/too freely spoken by the other characters. Moon Lovers is more visually stunning while Go Princess Go relies on some sassy comedy.

Both dramas incorporate modern elements, Moon Lovers seems to be big on modern themed music while Go Princess Go tries its hand on more visual and modernized outfits & settings.

- both are sageuk dramas
- there is romance
- both have easily lovable female leads who accidentally travelled back in time (while SSL is set in joseon era, ML is set in goryeo)

They're quite similar. Prophecies and good looking princes, fighting for the throne, strong headed characters, annoying second lead women, misunderstood and in need of petting males, etc.

Although from my point of view Prince of Lan Ling is much better and truly flawless..no awkward singing scenes either..

Maybe am still stuck with Moon Lovers, but you can see how both revolves around history and present with reincarnation of the main characters. If you love destined romance which repeats itself despite the passing time, then you definitely will love this.

1. Lee Jun Ki is the male lead of these two dramas so if you're a fan of him, you should check this out.
2. both are historical dramas and the characters of Jun Ki both have complicated background. In Iljimae, his dad is called the traitor of the country while in moon lovers, his mom hated him a lot. And family is the main key thing to his decision. Revenge.

I guess the people who like this movie and maybe watched and liked the TV series (Bu Bu Jing Xin / Scarlet heart) will enjoy the Korean adaptation. It's not a movie, but a TV series, yet it's worth watching. Enjoy :)
