Pann: Comparing graph of Moon Lovers, Love in the Moonlight, and Monster's ratings

1. [+73, -24] Fans of Moon Lovers have such a victim mentality. They think every post that bashes Moon Lovers is written by a fan of Love in the Moonlight. The truth is that the viewers of Love in the Moonlight are too busy to watch and stan the drama.

2. [+62, -12] "People exaggerate about the drama flopping", my ass... The script, production, and acting are objectively meant to flop. Lee Junki and Kang Haneul are too good for this.

3. [+60, -9] Wow, Love in the Moonlight is rising fast. Hope it does even better ㅠㅠ

4. [+30, -3] The staff of Moon Lovers took Love in the Moonlight as a joke. They held the first episode preview in front of the KBS building, overlapped the date of the conference, and targeted the drama in an interview. This is the result. The staff deserved to get their drama flopped ㅋㅋ

5. [+29, -2] It feels like yesterday when Love in the Moonlight was bashed and insulted but it's already passing 20% ㅠㅠ Do well!
