The reason Namgoong-min and Ahn Eun-jin go crazy for 'Lovers'
The drama 'Lovers' starring actors Namgoong-min and Ahn Eun-jin is a hot topic.

The rise of MBC's 'Lovers' is staggering. The 5th episode on the 18th recorded an audience rating of 8.4%, a 3.2%p increase from the previous episode, and the 6th episode on the 19th rose again, showing an audience rating of 8.8%. This corresponds to the first place in viewer ratings for Friday-Saturday dramas as well as the first place in viewer ratings for all channels during the same time period. In addition, in various topical figures, 'Lover' and 'Lover' performers are sweeping the top ranks. (Nielsen Korea nationwide standard)

What is the reason why viewers are enthusiastic about 'Lovers'? I pointed out the charm of 'lovers' only.

◆ Namgoong-Min ♥ Ahn Eun-Jin, a love like fate that could not prevent war

The first attractive point of 'Lovers' is 'Mello'. Previously, writer Hwang Jin-young explained 'Lovers' as a story about 'how far a person in love can go and what he can do'. As if to prove this, the lives of the main characters Lee Jang-hyeon (played by Namgoong-min) and Yoo Gil-chae (played by Ahn Eun-jin) are completely changed by 'love'. Lee Jang-hyeon risks his life to save Yu Gil-chae, and Yu Gil-chae takes risks to keep his promise to Lee Jang-hyeon.

The two actors Namgoong-min and Ahn Eun-jin are raising the viewer's immersion vertically by capturing the heartbreaking love of a lover in a brutal war with delicate yet intense acting. Accordingly, many viewers are looking forward to and hoping that Lee Jang-hyun and Yu Gil-chae can confirm each other's hearts and be happy, and start a sweet love, not an island to hesitate. The fate-like love that even war could not prevent is knocking on the hearts of viewers.

◆ A terrible war, the Manchu War, a tragic history that must not be forgotten

'Lovers' is based on the historical event of Byeongja Horan. In 1636, the Qing Dynasty invaded Joseon. At that time, King Injo of Joseon took refuge in Namhansanseong Fortress, but bowed his head to Qing, unable to overcome the continuing war and pressure from Qing. This is the Byeongjahoran we know.

However, the Byeongja Horan drawn by 'Lovers' does not stop here. It clearly shows the terrible tragedy and suffering that the people had to go through due to the Byeongja Horan. On the way to escape, they are in danger of dying, and the women take their own lives to avoid cowardice. 'Lovers' is a drama depicting the tragic history of the Byeongja Horan, which must not be forgotten, from the point of view of the people. This is the reason viewers wait for 'lovers' even though they shed tears and feel anxious every time.

◆ Realistic Lee Jang-hyun X subjective Yu Gil-chae, changing and growing character

After the outbreak of the Byeongjahoran, Lee Jang-hyeon shouted for a cause and cause, and unlike the Confucian scholars who joined the righteous army, he shouted that he would flee. He strides into war for the people who die innocently, not to protect the king who avoids himself first over the people. Viewers fell in love with actor Namgoong-min, who portrayed the realistic and attractive Lee Jang-hyun character, which had never been seen anywhere before.

Before the outbreak of Byeongjahoran, Yu Gil-chae was a well-bred baby. What mattered to her was love and getting attention from men. As she goes through the war, she grows into an independent and active person. He receives prayer for the first time in his life and even kills a barbarian to save his friend. The growth of Yoo Gil-chae and the acting of actor Ahn Eun-jin, who dramatically captured it, increased the level of immersion in the play. Nam Yeon-joon (Lee Hak-joo) and Kyung Eun-ae (Lee Da-in) also change as they go through the war. The charm of the non-obvious character in 'Lovers' captivated viewers.

'Lovers' has now aired up to episode 6. Expectations are high on what kind of heartbreaking and heartbreaking famous scenes will be created in the remaining episodes, and what powerful charm will attract viewers. MBC Friday and Saturday drama 'Lovers' is broadcast every Friday and Saturday at 9:50 pm.
