Production[edit]

On December 2015, KBS Media announced that they will be adapting and producing the popular novel Moonlight Drawn by Clouds written by Yoon Yi-soo.[10][11][12] Park Bo-gum joined the project in February 2016 and Kim Yoo-jung boarded in April. The first script reading was held in Yeoido, Seoul on May 26, 2016 and filming began in early June.[13]

The drama’s first teaser, with lead actor Park dressed in dragon robe dancing to Jessy Matador’s French pop-song “Bomba” in front of Gwanghwamun, was released on July 2016 and became a viral hit.[14][15]

In a press conference held in August 18, 2016, director Kim Sung-yoon indicated that despite the series being set in the 19th-century, the production aimed to show a more contemporary message adding: “Our focus was on creating a romance that’s pretty and charming but also sad. We’d like viewers to be able to identify with the emotions displayed. There’s no grand metaphor. Rather than unveiling a political message, we focused on telling a story that’s easy to identify with.”[16][17]

Due to high audience ratings, KBS negotiated for the production to extend its original 18 episodes to 20. Chief producer Kang Byung-taek declined saying that the framework of the story had already been laid out and it would only yield complications with the cast and crew’s respective schedules.[18]

Love in the Moonlight is the second collaboration between director Baek Sang-hoon, cinematographer Kim Si-hyeong and music director Gaemi after working on Descendants of the Sun (2016).[19]

Original soundtrack[edit]

In August 2016, OU Entertainment’s Gaemi, real name Kang Dong-yoon, joined the project as music director.[20] Jinyoung, who plays Yoon-sung, composed and produced “Misty Road” sung by Ben.[21] “My Person”, which lead actor Park finished recording in October 2016 was co-written by composer Kim Se-jin.[22] It topped Melon, Mnet, Bugs, olleh, Soribada, Genie, Naver and Monkey3 charts upon its release.[23][24]

The two-disc soundtrack album was released on October 27, 2016 and consists of 13 tracks including a humming version of “Because I Miss You”, 13 instrumentals and three special background music created by folk-fusion band Second Moon.[25][26]

The drama marked the comeback of acclaimed balladeers Sung Si-kyung and Baek Ji-young after two years.[27][28][29]

The series was met with praise by critics and audiences for its production, performances and music.[1][45][46] It doubled its premiere ratings on its third episode and remained the undisputed #1 against 3 public broadcasting dramas in the same timeslot.[47][48] In addition, it became KBS’s highest-rated Monday/Tuesday drama since 2010.[1][49] It also dominated topicality, content and brand reputation charts in and beyond its run which led the media to call its popularity “Moonlight Syndrome”.[4][5] Moreover, it topped viewership ratings in the Philippines where it premiered in March 2017, dubbed in Filipino on ABS-CBN.[50][51]

Costume designer Lee Jin-hee was also commended for her work on the production’s Joseon-era clothes. Lead actor Park’s hanbok were put on exhibit at Tokyo International Forum during his Japan fan meeting the following year.[52][53]

Sales of the novel experienced a 56% increase upon the drama’s airing.[54] The overseas demand consequently led to its translation in Mandarin and plans on Japanese and Thai translations, among others.[45] Both KakaoTalk and LINE released Moonlight digital stickers and three of Raon’s outfits were made available for purchase in mobile game “I Love Nicky”.[55][56] The eternal bracelets of Yeong and Raon went on sale as official merchandise and the drama’s 336-page official photo essay book became a best-seller.[57][58] Moonlight has also been parodied in shows like Saturday Night Live Korea and The Return of Superman, among others.[59][60] In September 2016, KBS Media acquired the rights to adapt Moonlight into a musical production.[61]

On October 19, 2016, Park, Kim, Jinyoung and Kwak held a fan-signing event, wearing their drama costumes, at the historic Gyeongbokgung Palace where scenes of the drama were filmed.[62][63] More than 5,000 fans gathered to see the cast and the event was also live-streamed on Facebook.[64] A gesture of gratitude for the drama’s success, it was a collaborative effort between KBS and the Korea Creative Content Agency.[65]

In partnership with Viki, the series screened at University of California, Berkeley on October 2016 as a joint project of the campus’ Korea-centric organizations, KUNA and K-Popular.[66]
