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.

"fall in love with his eunuch (psst, she’s a girl in disguise)."

Yawn. I'm so sick of this plotline. PBG might be the only thing that will make me watch this.

Honestly, i dont like his acting. He is so stiff, same facial expressions on all his dramas. I don't know why people are going gaga with him. All he can do is smile in the camera, act cute...but acting wise...he is a big dis appointment.
I admit he's handsome, but having only a pretty will not bring you to great places ( if you know what I mean). I would rather want to see Nam Taehyun act than him.

Dont hate me, these are just my honest opinions.

It sounds every bit predictable! Hope it's gonna be good. Never watched Park Bo-gum but I find him plenty of cute! Saw another article saying that Kim Go-Eun is likely his female lead.. Will be really glad if she is!! They have sizzling chemistry (seen in their G9 CF and a short bit in the movie Chinatown)
