    take on the proceedings

    I read this paragraph on other's blog. However, I don't fully understand the underlined part in the last sentence. Is its wording natural English?

    Historical dramas are among the most popular of the K-drama genre, even though the history they deal with is almost exclusively Korean. Lavish costumes and elaborate martial-arts sequences define this kind of Korean soap opera. It often conforms to the traditional values of Korea, such as Confucianism. Other K-dramas involve modern characters and situations, but maintain a distinctly Korean take on the proceedings.

    Yes — it's natural English, though informal.
