Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo Season 2 Renewal Status

The first season of the show was a bust since its ratings were mediocre and its performances fell short of expectations. It has been reported that the first season of Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo was sold to the Chinese broadcasting network Youku for over $400,000 for each episode, totaling more than $8 million.

Good Data Corporation, a research organization, claims the show has received more positive buzz than any other drama this year, including Love in the Moonlight and Descendants of the Sun.
