Kwak Dong-yeon joins Moonlight Drawn By Clouds as Park Bo-gum’s best friend

 photo Moonlight1 1.jpg

As a late addition to the upcoming youth sageuk Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, former child actor Kwak Dong-yeon (Come Back, Ajusshi) will join the cast as Kim Byeong-yeon, Joseon’s best swordsman and Crown Prince Hyomyeong’s best friend. You might recognize Kwak from some of his previous works as the youth counterpart in period dramas like Age of Feeling and Jang Ok-jung, Live By Love. He recently also put in a comical performance in Modern Farmer, where he played the immature but adorable maknae drummer in a rock band.

Just a quick synopsis of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds in case you don’t follow Bo-gummie news as religiously as I do: Set the in the Joseon dynasty, the youth drama follows the story of a prince’s first love. Park Bo-gum (Answer Me 1988) stars as Crown Prince Hyomyeong, who was known for his scholarly pursuits. One day outside the palace walls, he encounters Kim Yoo-jung (Secret Door), who is impersonating a male, and giving out advice on girls to her fellow Sungkyunkwan classmates. The crown prince takes a liking to the feminine-looking youth, and offers him/her a position as his chief eunuch advisor. From then on, we’ll get to see lots of cute romantic gender-swap confusion ensue.

Kwak Dong-yeon’s character, Kim Byeong-yeon, and Crown Prince Hyomyeong have been inseparable friends since childhood. Kim’s personality is described as foolishly bright, but with a steady loyal heart toward his prince. He’s the only person in whom the lonely and often all-too-serious Crown Prince Hyomyeong can really confide all his worries and troubles, until Kim Yoo-jung enters the palace as a eunuch. The best friend will be a willing participant in the future escapades and misadventures of the crown prince and his eunuch advisor, and act as a bridge for the two lovers.

Bo-gummie and some of his cast mates also recently did a surprise flash mob performance near Gwanghwamun to promote the drama in full sageuk dress. It’s absolutely hilarious, and lots of videos taken by fans are floating out in the Instagram universe.

Monday-Tuesday KBS drama Moonlight Drawn By Clouds will start airing in August.

Kwak Dong Yeon is actually a pretty decent actor. He just needs a breakthrough role.

I remember his character is getting involved in various accident and being heavily misunderstood by most of the people in Modern Farmer.
Good to see him back...

He has been in a couple of sageuks before. Hope this is a good role for him with more screen time.

Glad to see Kim Seung-Su (King Sunjo), a sageuk regular among the mix of newbie sageuk actors.

Excited to pick up another drama to keep me busy beside Unit 38 and The Good Wife.

He once said that KHJ's fans chased him for 1 kilometre because the fans thought he was KHJ.

He's a perfect example of a great but totally underated actor. I'd watched all his dramas especially on kbs drama special. This guy can pull off any character so well. Hope he's the lead here tho. He totally deserves to be recognize. ???

I ❤ Gumie! TC, IRY/HM, R88 (though I wasn't as fascinated by him because I already fell for him)

But I wasn't sure if he was enough to watch this show - still haven't finished a sageuk. KDY is totally the percentage that I needed to push me!

Bo Gum, Kwak Dong Yeon, Jinyoung! All together and, though I love JY, no chance of SLS. Not enthusiastic for September and school but August can come soon!

I need a good laugh today and the universe answered by video of Choi Taek wears sunglasses and princely robe and flash mobbing :-DDDDD
Was it Choi Taek, the prince or simply just Bogummie?
I will never know...

It was combination of the three of them, I think. Or mostly Park Bo Gum.
Have you seen him in YOF Africa? He literally is a dancing machine, dancing every time he heard music is being played. ㅋㅋㅋ

This news make me have to watch this drama. He's been exercising so I think he suits the warrior character.

This is his 5th project for this year and I wish he get lead role in the near future.
