I have been (unsurprisingly) useless this week, so I ended up in an internet spiral of fic* that somehow led to me marathoning Love in the Moonlight/Moonlight Drawn by Clouds in, uh, 2 days. >.> It was surprisingly addictive for what seemed like a fairly fluffy premise- though in retrospect, maybe I shouldn't have been surprised. I mean, come on, woman MC disguised as a man who somehow ends up as a palace eunuch falls in love with the crown prince? What is that, 5 romcom/fandom tropes smashed in one ball of epic glee? *g*

Anyway, after the pit of FEELS and TEARS that was re/watching Lang Ya Bang/Nirvana in Fire (which is the only thing I've been allowing myself to watch after I inhaled YOI), this kdrama hit the spot re: both feels and ALL THE FLUFF that made it better, haha. I couldn't say how accurate it is in terms of historical details, but I also felt that the storyline came from a more character- and relationship-driven angle than the incredible but unrelenting complex-politics-fest of NiF. As it definitely delivered on those, I'll leave analyzing those other parts to those who know them better :D

*Ending in the relevant stories: Day-to-Day Trials of a Longsuffering Cloud: The Diary of Head Eunuch Jang, A Warm and Generous Heart
