Park Bo-gum chooses palace romance Moonlight Drawn by Clouds

Oh I like this. I like it very much. Park Bo-gum has been flooded with offers since Answer Me 1988 ended, and he’s finally chosen his next project: the youth romance sageuk Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, a web novel adaptation being developed over at KBS. He’s been confirmed for the leading role, a prince who’ll fall in love with his eunuch (psst, she’s a girl in disguise).

The web novel by writer Yoon Yi-soo tells the story of a young woman who crossdresses as a man in order to give out love advice in 19th-century Joseon. She poses as a worldly man who knows all about what women want, which is frankly pretty damn smart. She’ll eventually be rewarded with a position in the palace as a eunuch, and she’ll turn the palace upside-down with her love advice.

The other two main characters are real historical figures: Crown Prince Hyomyeong (first son of King Sunjo) and Kim Sat-gat, famous Joseon poet and literary scholar. The heroine will befriend both prince and poet, and naturally romance will complicate their friendships. Park Bo-gum will play Prince Hyomyeong, a young genius and heir to the throne who became regent at eighteen. Park Bo-gum has played geniuses before but never a prince, so I’m excited to see him step out of his comfort zone and take on a fusion sageuk.

The drama will be helmed by the team behind Who Are You—School 2015 — writers Kim Min-jung and Im Ye-jin, and PD Kim Sung-yoon (who also worked on Discovery of Romance, Big, and Dream High). I have mixed feelings about that, because I really did find School 2015 to be beautifully directed and addictively paced… but it also made me all kinds of angry as the story went on. Still, I loved it when I loved it, and youth romance seems like a good fit for the team. I mean, they already cast Park Bo-gum, so I’m in it for the long haul anyway, right?

Moonlight Drawn by Clouds is aiming for a 2016 broadcast on KBS.

I honestly liked School 2015 - crazy plot twists and inconsistent writing et all. There were great character beats in the drama - specially for the minor ones. I still feel moved when I think of the #1 kid in class almost harmed himself because of the expectations put by his parents. Those things got to me.

Considering there's a real source material, I expect this to be good. Can't wait to see who they get for the female lead. Kim Seul-gi is a little too obvious, no? I love her but it would be nice to see her do something different. I vote Park Bo-young for this. Or Kim Go-eun. That would be cute.

Bogum fulfilled his wish to become a prince lol I wonder which korean actress will become his princess in the drama? the list of actresses who I think can become female lead would be either kim so hyun , kim so eun, Kim Sae-Ron (maybe too young) or kim bo-ra? since bogum has a baby face I think in order to look compatible I think he might need an actress who looks younger than him unless their chemistry is fantastic.

Fast forward to 2017, KYJ did rock the role. She was perfect for the role - she turned 18 during filming of the drama - and the age of the eunuch in the story is 18 and the prince is 19.

Now please dear drama gods, cast a good actress opposite him and let the script turn out decent.

The absolute last thing in the world I want is another Scholar Who Walks the Night mess cheating a cast who were far too good for that nonsensical story.

in other note, Kim Ji Won is going to act in web drama star with In Guk. Such a coincidence.

TAEK TAEK TAEK
A PRINCE PARK BO GUM is all I need. This is the best news that has happened since Reply 1988. I am excoited (no typo) really excoited. I'm thrilled and dancing in rejoice. I think at this point I will watch any drama where Park Bo Gum is the lead. Because he will have so much screen time. I feel so bad watching his old shows just to see him because then I watch like 60 mins of shin eun kyung or joo won and only like 10 mins of park bo gum. And thay is way excruciating so much that you wanna bang that piano cover to their hands.

I will kill the PD or the director if they do any Park Hae Jim antics and reduce his screen time.

Thay said, I'm celebrating and counting the days to have Park Bo Gum back on my screen.

I've read this manhwa before, I think
I hope they cast a good female lead but I really hope that she at least looked liked a pretty boy, as example Taemin from SHINee,
I knew that man has upper hand in ancient times so many female prefer to dress like a male if they want to work but at least they have to look like one,

It seems like a cute story, I hope it gonna do well, I am sucker for Saeguk romance
