Jung Il-woo and the adults of Moon/Sun to appear this week

Eee, make way for the adult cast of The Moon That Embraces the Sun! (Or, should I say, older cast, since some of these younguns still don’t strike me quite as adults.)

On one hand, the teenage cast has been rocking the show so far so I’ll be sad to see them go, particularly the two brothers (Yeo Jin-gu as Prince Hwon and Lee Min-ho as Yang-myung), who have such wonderful chemistry and a rich backstory.

On the other hand, the adult cast is what got me excited about this drama in the first place, and I can’t wait to see how Kim Soo-hyun tackles Hwon’s adorable mix of strength and vulnerability, and how Jung Il-woo plays the quiet pain underneath the smiling, joking exterior. (My heart, it bleeds already.)

In these first stills, Jung is in character as Yang-myung, older half-brother to the king. Below the stills of Jung are several photos of the adult cast in scenes to come.

After finishing his first shoots as Yang-myung, Jung Il-woo said, “I was really excited and nervous going into it, but as I discussed the script with director Kim Do-hoon, I quickly got into the role. It feels great that the drama is receiving such love from viewers, but it also adds to the pressure. Because Lee Min-ho did such a great job with the younger role, I feel like have even more weight to shoulder, but I’ll do my best with a hapy heart. I want to continue the great acting done by the younger cast.”

Jung makes his appearance in this week’s Episode 6, along with the other adult cast members.

 
Sadly, we’ll have to say goodbye to these faces:

Same here. I kind of don't want to see them go...but I'm also looking forward to seeing the older actors. I'm so torn. Can't they do some sort of compromise and include flashbacks every now and then.? >.<

I have a hunch it may only be at the verrrrry end of Episode 6, which is almost the same as saying the adults begin (in earnest) next week. It just seems like they'd do that - pull us in with a tease, and then make us wait another week for the real thing.

Not that I'm complaining, since the kids. Eee!

I'm all but drooling over this drama, but have made it a policy not to start watching any new shows until all the episodes are available so I can watch at my own (pathetically speedy) pace. Having fallen in total love with both Sunkyunkwan Scandal and Sam-Dong, I might need a support group and/or patch to stay away from Sparklehorse Love Pony or whatever they're calling it. : X

DL the drama, read the recaps + news, although I am captivated with the story and the casts, I haven't watch it yet.

Young LMH has twisted my heart as young Yang-myung, JIW will surely turn me into a watery pot. My heart is not strong enough to see the ever so lovely JIW portraying the smiling-broken hearted prince.. T_T

I agree. Yang-myung is gonna be what I'm obsessed with for the next 2 and a half (?) months. He's already reducing me to a puddle of goo. And JUNG IL-WOO. When he acts anything sad I just start bawling (49 days, cough cough). I think...I'll also need to start using my rolls of toilet paper to sop up all my tears.

I squealed at this post, even if I'm really torn. I love the youngsters, and these BTS pics are adorable. But I'd been anticipating JIW and KSH to come on board.

And I want to see the development of Min Hwa and Yeom's story. And Seol's too. Is she going to end up with Woon? This drama is bringing out my hidden shippy self. LOVE!

Love that pic at the end of Yeo Jin-gu and Lee Min-ho!!! I'm going to miss the young kids. As talented as Jung Il Woo and Kim Soo Hyun are, I think the kids have set the bar reallllllllyy high up not only in terms of acting, but with their chemistry with each other. I wish we could pause right here and wait another 10 years for the kids to grow up so we can film the rest of the drama with their adult versions.

And sadly, I'm not as into the drama as I had originally thought I would be. There is just a sense of foreboding and hopelessness that depresses me. The characters' fates have already been decided. I may just drop it and then drop in for MinHwa, Yeom, and Seol because it feels like they have a better chance at getting a non-depressing end.

P.S. I sure hope some time in the future when they're older and can be the "adult version" in a drama, I want to see Lee Minho and Kim Yoojung together again as the main couple because they were awesome in Gumiho's Revenge and here too. Gah, just thinking of the possibilities makes me melt.
P.P.S. Is it inappropriate to say when they are of age that I think they should date? Sooooooooo cute.

I'm sure the ''adult'' cast will do a great job.
At last a sageuk where I can ship myself to self destruction. I always feel like there's always promise of a romantic story line but it never really gets delivered in sageuks, The conspiring always takes the first sit sooner or later. I just hope that won't be the case with this one. Fingers crossed and I hope chwaaa's fragile little heart won't be crushed too soon .

I feel like this post turns me into an obsesssed aunty that everyone frets coming to visit for the silly talk and the pinching of ze cheeks.

Luckily there are those scenes in which characters remincsce. I hope we have those in this drama too, so that the transition might be easier for us, the viewers. Although I began watching it for Jung Il Woo (I am not a sageuk fan), I found myself overwhelmed with joy watching it. This drama is not at all as I expected it to be. It is sweet and fun and witty and with a nice rhythm. I am affraid it might lack some sweeteness when the older actors are in, not because of themselves, but because the drama might get more "serious" - more plots, less romance.

Hrmm.. so it seem that Ha Ga In will be showing up on episode 7 as they have shown everybody except her. I am very sad as I will miss the kids cast but very happy and excited as the adult cast will be coming on. I do hope the adult cast look at the younger cast so they can be the same in personality, face features etc... EEee.. Bring on the HOTNESS of Jung Ill Woo and KSH... XD

Aw. So cute.

Even though I watched for Kim Soo Hyun, now I'm equally fans of Yeo Jin-gu and Lee Min-ho (he really need a stage name). Nevermind, he's not of age. Just please grow up and get an adult role, soon! Else, if somebody crazy enough to make story about kids, they are the cast right here.

hmm...mixture of feelings. As much as I love the kid casts, i am really anticipate to see KSH and JIW, i am sure they would make a cute brother pair. well at least we get one more week before we officially say good bye to the kids and that is a good amount episode with the kids in it compares to other drama. Cant wait!!!

Can Lee Min-ho use the same name as the other one as an actor in Korea?He needs to get a new stage name, but he was awfully good irregardless.
Yeo Jin Gu and Kim Yoo jung are really growing up fast. She is a real beautiful teen already.She will be a striking beauty when she is an adult.
The young adult cast did marvelous job. Hate to see them go.It was a handsome and talented younger cast.
I'm confused about the romantic story line. Kim Yoo jung was named as the imperial concubine.In those days,does that mean she is really married or is the unofficial bride to the crown prince?

I think the problem is that Lee Minho (younger one) has been acting since late 90s/early 2000s with his real name. I don't think they thought that another actor with the same name would come along and get really really famous. So he's got a reputation for being a good child actor but I think he is probably thinking himself that he needs to get a stage name before he transitions to adult roles.

I think in one of the interviews..Jung Il- woo was thinking that maybe 12% rating to start with(since it is year 2012 and being the first saguk drama for the year) but as it turned out ..it was more than that...now the "adults" will have to play their roles well to be able to maintain that rating set by the younger actors....big responsibility indeed!!!! I do not worry since Jung Il woo never disappoints me.

okay, so as much as I love Jung Il-woo the actor, I don't find him that attractive, but the saeguk look looks great on him.

And yes, adorable kids are adorable. I'm only on episode three and I'm already attached to them and their characters. I think their age makes them more natural actors - I'll be sad to see them go. I really hope the adult cast matches up. I'm only concerned about Han Ga-in to be honest, since I haven't seen her in anything - I have full faith in the others. (Though Kim Min-seo's younger counterpart *might* just out act her - we'll see.)

Anyway, this is the only drama I'm following from week to week right now, so I hope it stays good!

I'll be really missing the young cast especially Yeo Jin-goo (my favourite child actor... nuna's waiting for you to grow up!!) and Kim Yoo-jung (lovely wherever I see her), but am sooo looking forward to seeing Kim Soo-hyun as Hwon! And I think I'm probably one of the few who is excited to see Han Ga-in as Yeon-woo/Wol. Han Ga-in's classic beauty kind of suits the role well and even though I've never found her acting fabulous, she can be good when she tries hard enough. All the best to the adult cast!

The last picture of Hwon hugging Yeom is totally love <3 <3 reminds me of the "love confession" Hwon made to Yeom in episode 4 LOL.
