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]

    Platonic love (often lower-cased as platonic[1]) is a term used for a type of love, or close relationship that is non-sexual. It is named after Plato, though the philosopher never used the term himself. Platonic love as devised by Plato concerns rising through levels of closeness to wisdom and true beauty from carnal attraction to individual bodies to attraction to souls, and eventually, union with the truth. This is the ancient, philosophical interpretation.[2] Platonic love is often contrasted with romantic love.

    Philosophical interpretation[edit]

    Platonic love is examined in Plato’s dialogue, the Symposium, which has as its topic the subject of love or Eros generally. It explains the possibilities of how the feeling of love began and how it has evolved—both sexually and non-sexually. Of particular importance is the speech of Socrates, who attributes to the prophetess Diotima an idea of platonic love as a means of ascent to contemplation of the divine. The step of this ascent is known as the “Ladder of Love”. For Diotima, and for Plato generally, the most correct use of love of human beings is to direct one’s mind to love of divinity. Socrates defines love based on separate classifications of pregnancy (to bear offspring); pregnancy of the body, pregnancy of the soul, and direct connection to Being. Pregnancy of the body results in human children. Pregnancy of the soul, the next step in the process, produces “virtue” – which is the soul (truth) translating itself into material form.[3]

    “[…] virtue for the Greeks means self-sameness […] in Plato’s terms, Being or idea.”(106) [3]

    Eros[edit]

    In short, with genuine platonic love, the beautiful or lovely other person inspires the mind and the soul and directs one’s attention to spiritual things. Pausanias, in Plato’s Symposium (181b–182a), explained two types of love or Eros—Vulgar Eros or earthly love and Divine Eros or divine love. Vulgar Eros is nothing but mere material attraction towards a beautiful body for physical pleasure and reproduction. Divine Eros begins the journey from physical attraction, i.e. attraction towards beautiful form or body but transcends gradually to love for Supreme Beauty. This concept of Divine Eros is later transformed into the term platonic love. Vulgar Eros and Divine Eros are both connected and part of the same continuous process of pursuing totality of being itself,[4] with the purpose of mending human nature, eventually reaching a point of unity where there is no longer an aspiration to change.[5]

    “Eros is […] a moment of transcendence […] in so far as the other can never be possessed without being annihilated in its status as the other, at which point both desire and transcendence would cease […] (84) [5]

    Eros as a god[edit]

    In the Symposium, Eros is discussed as a Greek god – more specifically, the king of the gods, with each guest of the party giving a eulogy in praise of Eros.[4] This view of Eros is different from how a modern person would interpret it. Most modern people would think of Eros as a concept rather than a god. This is an example of cultural relativity, because the modern interpretation of the term is different from the ancient Greek interpretation.

    “So this is how I assert that Eros is the oldest, most honorable, and most competent of the gods with regard to the acquisition of virtue and happiness by human beings both when living and dead.”[4] (180c, 8) – Plato’s quoting of Phaedrus’ eulogy on Eros

    Virtue[edit]

    Virtue, according to Greek philosophy, is the concept of how closely reality and material form equates with the ideal, true essence of an idea, such as beauty. Virtue is the result of pregnancy of the soul.[3] This definition varies considerably from the modern English interpretation of the term, where virtue equates to that which is good, positive, or benevolent. This can be seen as a form of linguistic relativity.

    Some modern authors perception of the terms “virtue” and “good” as they are translated into English from the Symposium are a good indicator of this misunderstanding. In the following quote, the author simplifies the idea of virtue as simply what is “good”.

    “[…] what is good is beautiful, and what is beautiful is good […]”[6]

    Ladder of Love[edit]

    The Ladder of Love is named as such because it relates each step toward Being itself as consecutive rungs of a ladder. Each step closer to the truth further distances love from beauty of the body toward love that is more focused on wisdom and the essence of beauty.[3]

    The ladder starts with carnal attraction of body for body, progressing to a love for body and soul. Eventually, in time, with consequent steps up the ladder, the idea of beauty is eventually no longer connected with a body, but entirely united with Being itself. [4]

    “[…] decent human beings must be gratified, as well as those that are not as yet decent, so that they might become more decent; and the love of the decent must be preserved.” [4] (187d, 17) – Eryximachus’ “completion” of Pausanias’ speech on Eros

    Tragedy and comedy[edit]

    Plato’s Symposium defines two extremes in the process of platonic love; the entirely carnal and the entirely ethereal. These two extremes of love are seen by the Greeks in terms of tragedy and comedy. According to Diotima in her discussion with Socrates, for anyone to achieve the final rung in the Ladder of Love, they would essentially transcend the body and rise to immortality – gaining direct access to Being. Such a form of love is impossible for a mortal to achieve.[3]

    What Plato describes as “pregnancy of the body” is entirely carnal and seeks pleasure and beauty in bodily form only. This is the type of love, that, according to Socrates, is practiced by animals.[4]

    “Now, if both these portraits of love, the tragic and the comic, are exaggerations, then we could say that the genuine portrayal of Platonic love is the one that lies between them. The love described as the one practiced by those who are pregnant according to the soul, who partake of both the realm of beings and the realm of Being, who grasp Being indirectly, through the mediation of beings, would be a love that Socrates could practice.”[3]

    Tragedy[edit]

    Diotima considers the carnal limitation of human beings to the pregnancy of the body to be a form of tragedy, as it separates someone from the pursuit of truth. One would be forever limited to beauty of the body, never being able to access the true essence of beauty.[3]

    Comedy[edit]

    Diotima considers the idea of a mortal having direct access to Being to be a comic situation simply because of the impossibility of it. The offspring of true virtue would essentially lead to a mortal achieving immortality.[6]

    Evolution of platonic love[edit]

    In the Middle Ages arose a new interest in Plato, his philosophy and his view of love. This was caused by Georgios Gemistos Plethon during the Councils of Ferrara and Firenze in 1438-1439. Later in 1469, Marsilio Ficino put forward a theory of neo-platonic love in which he defines love as a personal ability of an individual which guides their soul towards cosmic processes and lofty spiritual goals and heavenly ideas (De Amore, Les Belles Lettres, 2012). The first use of the modern sense of platonic love is taken as an invention of Ficino in one of his letters.

    Though Plato’s discussions of love originally centered on relationships which were sexual between members of the same sex, scholar Todd Reeser studies how the meaning of platonic love in Plato’s original sense underwent a transformation during the Renaissance, leading to the contemporary sense of nonsexual heterosexual love.[7]

    The English term dates back to William Davenant’s The Platonic Lovers (performed in 1635); a critique of the philosophy of platonic love which was popular at Charles I’s court. It is derived from the concept in Plato’s Symposium of the love of the idea of good which lies at the root of all virtue and truth. For a brief period, Platonic love was a fashionable subject at the English royal court, especially in the circle around Queen Henrietta Maria, the wife of King Charles I. Platonic love was the theme of some of the courtly masques performed in the Caroline era—though the fashion soon waned under pressures of social and political change.

    Seven types of love[edit]

    Throughout these era’s platonic love slowly was categorized into different subsections, which were: Eros, Philia, Storge, Agape, Ludus, Pragma, Philautia. Eros is a sexual or passionate love, or a modern perspective of romantic love. Philia is the type of love that is directed towards friendship or goodwill, often is met with mutual benefits that can also can be formed by companionship, dependability, and trust. Storge is the type of love that is found between parents and children, and this is often a unilateral love. Agape is the universal love, that can consist of the love for strangers, nature, or god. Ludus is a playful and uncommitted love, this is focused for fun and sometimes as a conquest with no strings attached. Pragma is the type of love that is founded on duty and reason, and one’s longer term interests. Philautia is self-love and this can be healthy or unhealthy; which can be unhealthy if you are hubris if placed ahead of gods, and it can be healthy if its used to build self esteem and confidence. These different forms of love can be mistaken as any of the listed different loves.  There is a type of porosity that allows love to filter through one type and into the next, although for plato love is to be of the beautiful and good things. This is due to the ownership of beautiful and good things equates into happiness. All beautiful and good things sit below truth and wisdom, for everyone looks to truthful and wise people as the truly beautiful for the effort of being considered beautifully good, and this is exactly why Plato suggests that love is not a god but rather a philosopher.[8]

    Modern interpretation[edit]

    Definition of platonic love[edit]

    “Platonic love in its modern popular sense is an affectionate relationship into which the sexual element does not enter, especially in cases where one might easily assume otherwise.”[9] “Platonic lovers function to underscore a supportive role where the friend sees her or his duty as the provision of advice, encouragement, and comfort to the other person […] and do not entail exclusivity”[10]

    Complications of platonic love[edit]

    90% of our closest relationship will be of a platonic nature,[11] but when there is an insistence on labeling the relationship as platonic love the terminology itself may create discourse within one’s relationships. Notably romantic relationships where a bond of love has been established.

    One of the complications of platonic love lies within the persistence of the use of the title itself “platonic love” versus the use of “friend”. It is the use of the word love that directs us towards a deeper relationship than the scope of a normal friendship.

    Secondly, a study by Hause and Messman states: “The most popular reasons for retaining a platonic relationship of the opposite sex (or sex of attraction) was to safeguard a relationship, followed by not attracted, network disapproval, third party, risk aversion, and time out.” This points to the fact that the title of platonic love in most cases is actually a title-holder to avoid sexual interaction between knowing and consenting friends, with mutual or singular sexual interest and/or tension existing.
