Moony eyes on the set of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds

Aw, cute. Here’s our first official peek at KBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday series Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, starring Park Bo-gum (Answer Me 1988) and Kim Yoo-jung (Angry Mom) in a youth romance set in Joseon. They look awfully adorable smiling and making moony eyes at each other, and Kim Yoo-jung looks so small that I wonder if the other eunuchs will mistake her for a little boy.

The web novel adaptation is a reimagining of Crown Prince Hyomyeong (played by Park Bo-gum) as your average drama hero—that is, a prickly geeeenius—and the untold story of his youth. Kim Yoo-jung plays a girl who makes a living crossdressing as a man in order to give out love advice. She first meets the prince out in town thinking that he’s just a very pretty scholar, and they don’t get off to a good start. But then she’ll enter the palace as a eunuch, and they’ll reunite and become friends, and eventually fall in love.

Chae Soo-bin (Sassy Go Go) co-stars as the prince’s wife, and B1A4’s Jinyoung (Warm and Cozy) rounds out the love square as the prince’s friend and rival for the heroine’s affections.

The setup and the main characters are pretty standard for a fusion sageuk romance, so it’ll really be up to the writing and directing (by the team behind Who Are You—School 2015) and the actors’ rapport to set it apart. I’m hopeful, partly because of the cast, and partly because I just want it to be good. Very scientific, I know.

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds follows Beautiful Mind on August 15.

It's quite common in sageuk dramas right? Remember the ratings hit moon embracing sun?

Well it depends on the approach they are taking, because in Moon embracing the sun the prince was supposed to get married to Yeon woo but then she was kind of killed and all that. And even though he got married, he never had anything to do with his wife, he always had Yeon Woo on his heart and when she came back at the end they got married. So she was never his concubine, she became the legitimate queen.

Moon Sun was based on the popular novel so they kind of get away with the king not sleeping with his wife because his long lost princess was still alive.

In reality, he would've consummated his marriage whether he wants to or not.

Yeah, the eunuchs choose whom he's going to sleep with on which night, right?

I always lol'd at the king in METS--he never seemed to do any work, never cared about producing an heir to stabilize his reign, what with his healthy older brother being a coup magnet, and just moped around about his adolescent crush for ten years.

Political marriage is not always loveless. Sometimes the couple it works out where they learn to love and respect each other after being married for a while. (eg King Gongmin and Queen Noguk).

Every noble lady who marries the king, prince or a noble man knows that their husband is expected to have concubines. No one goes into a marriage blindly.

Really just makes you realize what an amazing man Gongmin was for his time. Marries his wife for political reasons, then falls in love with her, and then never looks at another woman for as long as she lives, even though they had difficulty producing an heir. All this in a time when no one would have batted an eye if he'd had twenty concubines. And then in Shin Don he refuses to touch her for years when he finds out she could die giving birth. Gongmin <3333

But Shin Don acknowledged that his lack of an heir was crippling his reign. METS never got that far lol.

I've learnt a lot and have better understanding of Korean history from his writing than any history teacher's boring lecture.
He made all of his characters human even the most worshipped and brilliant King Sejong. He was all that but he was still a man and he was not a perfect man.

Me too. His stuff has really made me look at historical figures as human beings, and made me question the historical narrative on a lot of things.

I'm not saying that all political marriages are loveless. I'm saying that this particular marriage is most likely going to be a loveless one for political reasons. According to the relationship flowchart, neither the Crowned Prince nor his wife has feelings for each other. That doesn't necessarily mean they do not have respect for one another: they just don't have romantic affections for their spouse.

I know what you meant. Political marriage was the norm back then and most did not get to experience romantic love between a husband and wife.
It hard to when they have to share their husband with other women.

That premise is what completely destroyed my love for Scarlet Heart once they tried to focus on the "love" between the main actors who already had wives that loved them. I wonder how they will handle it in this one since hard to find adultery romantic in any way.

I read somewhere else that Jo Ha Yeon is the one who offered Prince Lee Yeong a political marriage with her. I think she doesn't have any romantic feelings for him until she finds the truth that Prince Lee Yeong is attracted to Hong Ra On(and it hurts her pride, I think, because JHY only knows Ra On as a eunuch. And "he" is pretty too hee).

I found JHY is very interesting character. I hope she wouldn't be a typical jerk princess who will do anything to get rid of anyone who gets in her way.

I love Kim Yoo Jung. I was rooting for her to play Hae Soo in Scarlet Heart which eventually went to IU. I think she's a better actress but too young to romance my smexy Lee Jun Ki, perhaps illegal even.

As much as I adore KYJ, I love Lee Jun Ki a lot more and therefore will root for Scarlet Heart. Plus it's a big budget production and the trailer was mind-blowing and seems very promising.

Moonlight may have the upperhand since it starts a week earlier than Scarlet but Scarlet's predecessor, Doctors is leading with the ratings so that may help to give Scarlet an extra edge.

Now a lot pay more attention on Scarlet since the released of the trailer and I hope the drama will be very good.

Ya. I agree that she's a better choice than IU except that she's too young.

But I thought Moon Geun Young was much younger than Park Shin Yang when they paired up in Painter of The Wind.so may be, KYJ and LJK may not br that bad as a pair.

But from the trailer, IU seems to be doing fine even in emotional scenes. Fingers crossed that Scarlet will turn out well.

Yes Kim Yoo-jung is still too young. Moon was 21 at the time so it wasn't a big deal. She was an adult and boy did she rock her role and walked away with the Daesang award for that year.

Kim Yoo-jung is turning 17 right when Moonlight airs. (5 more years maybe?).

0

IU has always been a good actress, she really came into her own the minute drama writers gave her more room to play.

Which is why the vitriol when she was cast puzzled me so, considering she'd just had a very well-received (plenty of praise AND the ratings peaks for the second half of the drama all happened during her scenes) turn on Producers. She was the best thing about that drama, hands down.

0

She looks great in the trailer and she is going to be fine. It's not a traditional sageuk and she can be a bit awkward in the beginning because she is a modern girl.
The transition from modern Korea to Goryeo will be my fav part because once she gets settled, it might get all heavy and serious from there.

It's been a while where I've gone into a drama already loving both of the leads, so I'm relieved that they match, not only in chemistry but visually as well.

But what I'm really curious about is that apparently PBG's Prince Hyomyeong died young? All promos have indicated this is lighthearted youth sageuk fare, but a conventional happy ending wouldn't exactly work when one half of the couple is, well, dead.

I'm honestly side eyeing anyone that finds this cute. She's actually underage, not playing an underage character that has a love line with someone older which a lot of people seemed to have issues with in other dramas, and this get up makes the age gap even more noticeable.

Honestly, out of all the recent dramas displaying this unhealthy trend, this one seems the least disturbing to me - if I recall correctly, Bo-gum is 23 and she's 17, I think.
Has this trend always been around in kdramas and we're just noticing it now or is this sth recent?

I think huge age gap between the leads has been around for a while, most notably was Yoona and Lee Bumsoo during Prime Minister and I. even that got a lot of buzz back then.
It's just becomes hot topic now because the lead females are still underage.
As for my own opinion, I'm fine with the age gap (PBG and KYJ's age gap isn't that big, honestly) as long as they don't force underage to get chummy with the male lead.

The underage actresses that have been paired with older counterparts are all wel established pros. I hope this is all a coincidence and this creepy trend will soon die ( I'm missing out on a lot of good dramas!). As far as big age gaps goes, that's engraved in the industry unfortunately.

yeah, this is really a 'lesser of the evils' situation - and while we all knew the Kims were going to come for those lead roles the minute they reached full height, the age-inappropriate pairings are a side effect we didn't reckon with, and I hope they cease.

This particular one is actually the least objectionable so far when it's come to casting underage actresses with older actors - but it's still not cool.

I'm ok with age gaps up to 6 years because that's the upper and lower limit of adolescence/teen years, but beyond that.... NOPE.

A six-year gap betveen actors if the younger one is in her late teens, is a LOT less squicky than the 10-15 year gaps of certain other recent dramas.

I mean, it's not ideal but at least this pair could have been in their teens at the same time. Unlike the others.

it's worth pointing out that the age gap between Kim Yoo-jung and Park Bo-gum is the exact same as between her and Lee Min-ho '93 - and people have been shipping her with the latter guy for years since Moon/Sun (never got the appeal, myself).

Not to mention, she was paired with Baro in Angry Mom, who's a full 8 years older than her and looked every day of it, and no one really blinked at that since things remained chaste.

But there's still a vast difference in the level of inappropriateness when it comes to pairing up a 16 year old with a 22 year old, vs a barely 15 year old with a 30 year old.

I'm still waiting for another Kim Yoo-jung/Lee Min-ho (93) and Kim Yoo-jung/Yeo Jin-goo sageuk pairing but in their mid twenties and up.

”She is actually underage not playing an underage character”

Actually she is playing 17 year old character, while Bo Gum aged down to play 19 year old. I have no idea if it was still considered as underage at that time but it's coming of age genre so it doesn't feel out of place to me. Still I do understand your concern.

Yoojung's actually playing an underage character. Hong Raon, the character she plays, is 17 in the novel. Yoojung's 17 as well. The age gap is the same as her age gap with Jisoo in Angry Mom, and the age gap between Suzy and Soohyun in Dream High.

I know. I was just illustrating that the age gap is not that big of a deal given that their classmates there and picked Jisoo as an example and not Baro because he's the same age as Bogum. Some of the fans want them to be paired up anyway and some were also bummed that Yoojung turned down the leading role in Sassy Go, Go. If you want another example that's been paired up illustrating the age gap, then it's Sohyun and Jisoo in Page Turner then.

I have to admit though, I am confused by your reaction. Where in my statement above did I say that Jisoo was Yoojung's leading man in Angry Mom? I just said that the age gap is the same. I also don't "keep matching them up" and I remember Baro's role in Angry Mom fully well. *scratches head*

I wouldn't worry about the casting for Bride of the Water God. There's a lot of skinship in the manhwa, and I think people would throw a fit if the actress and actor weren't appropriate ages. The story definitely isn't suitable for young actresses whereas the dramas the three Kims are in don't seem to be big on the romance (not so sure of Moonlight, but PBG and KYJ are closer in age).

the Moonlight manhwa apparently had a lot of skinship too (couple taking baths together and such) and yet they cast Kim Yoo-jung.

Bride of the Water God had some major skinship but it was quite spread out iirc. And it most definitely is a romance manhwa, though who knows how it'll look after the setting change. The main reason I was looking forward to it was the costumes and potential chemistry, but I just hope they cast right and that tvN does not see this as a window of opportunity to shove some talentless idol in the lead (after what they did with Bring It On Ghost and the Cheese mess, I really don't trust them)

He was in his 20s when he died. There's plenty to work with during his early years. He was also ruling the country as a regent.

Finally, two of my favorites! I love their smiles, so adorable and undeniable and full of cuteness. I see KYJ's smile is very similar with Ra On in one of the novel illustration. And also their height differences! I can already see sparks fly between them. I guess they will tone down the romance part a bit since KYJ is still underage. But, is it too much if I wish that Lee Yeong will be as romantic as teenage Lee Hwon? It doesn't matter for me if they will only show us innocent and cute romance like teenage part of TMTETS.

I think the casts of Moonlight are good and I'm not too worry about the ratings. Hopefully the storyline will be good. I can't fully erase the vampire scholar disaster from my mind.

You are reading this the wrong way, dear. Im not saying that its either wrong or right. Im just pointing out the hypocrisy of some people of being okay with certain things then suddenly not okay with something similar.

I think it all has something to do with image and perception. Kim Yoojung has a strong childhood actress image. So people find it hard to look past that. While people are more forgiving of Suzy's situation as she was a new face.

Pretty much the same with Park Bogum whom people find to have an adult and mature image due to his prev roles when he is actually quite young in real life. Its like comparing Jisoo and Bogum. They are the same age. But Jisoo has a strong image of being a high school student in his dramas so people are more relaxed when it comes to him and Kim Sohyun. So yes, it is all hypocrisy.

honestly, i think it is only the international fans/viewers who are making a fuss about age differences and such. while korean fans are honestly really thrilled about the casting. so i don't know why some are being over-the-top about it. it's a youth romance. note the term: youth. so i assume that the romance is gonna be really sweet and innocent and appropriate for the actors as well as for their characters, seeing as their character ages are young as well (17 & 20). you can't expect a 17 year old to have a hardcore passionate romance, do you?

This may be idealistic of me, but I'd like to see one sageuk where the wives have a friendship going on rather than a rivalry. I'm actually hoping that might happen here, but *shrug* It can and does happen in real life. I've heard of some co-wives, even historically, who found their relationship meant more to them than even their husband. That could be fun to see, too.
