3 April 2017 | by rondmendozaSee all my reviews

I am no fan of Korean TV series but I took an exception in watching since the plot was very complicated taking a step back in time. It took me awhile to feel comfortable watching since it took a lot of effort in reading subtitles while internalizing the dialogue. But right after Episode 2, I was totally hooked. I couldn't stop with just 1 episode a night and had the craving to just watch all 20 episodes in 2 nights!! Scarlet Heart Ryeo has just begun airing in the Philippines but I have access to the original version with English subtitle, which I prefer. It was giving me a headache listening to the Tagalog translation. Besides, it was more heart-wrenching hearing their original voices. So, as a fan of the Scarlet Heart Ryeo series, I hope that a Scarlet Heart Ryeo 2 is up for an international showing SOON. It may not have been a hit in South Korea but I hope that the producers seek the comments from the international audience for an unbiased feedback.
