Oh Snap! Moonlight stars on cloud nine
by | September 14, 2016 | 116 Comments

It’s a rather broody photo shoot for two stars who are on top of the world right now — with their hit drama Moonlight Drawn By Clouds breaking twenty percent ratings this past week, Park Bo-gum and Kim Yoo-jung should really be dancing in these photos, no? Here they are for Elle Korea, answering questions directly from their fans.

Kim Yoo-jung said that filming was so hard at first that she wanted to run away, but over time the entire cast and crew has become like a family: “Park Bo-gum oppa treats me very well. We’re like brother and sister. Before we started shooting, we went to eat and read together to try and become friendlier, but I was so shy that we weren’t very close. But once we suffered together on set, we naturally became friendly. Now Bo-gum oppa, Jinyoung oppa, Kwak Dong-yeon oppa, and the other eunuch sunbaenims and I are comfortable like family.”

When asked about his ideal type, Park Bo-gum said, “I like someone who’s comfortable like a friend, who also takes care of me like a mom.” That sound you hear is the collective sigh of all the noonas ’round the world.

    oh my

    There is totally magic in BoGum’s smile but ick, I don’t want to be anyone’s mommy!

    • 2.1 calex

      well i don’t think you will be a “mommy” but I guess, he needs someone who is quite caring.

    • 2.2 Ashi

      The “mommy” part was the crown prince in him talking. He just needs a very caring and friendly ……eunuch

      • 2.2.1 super

        he meant he needs a ‘doek sun’

        • Celine

          Yes! Definitely Deoksun! hehe!

          • EZ

            And taht adds fuel to PBG-Hyeri linkup .. πŸ™‚

            But ya who knows, they are literally what they were in the show πŸ™‚

          • jellybine

            OMG. You are right! He definitely needs a Deoksun! We’re of the same age but I really feel that he’s a baby that needs to be taken care of.

        • Mashimomo

          Definitely a Deoksun, haha. By the way, it was pointed out by a lot of PBG fan accounts that most of his fans are noonas which is definitely true in my case! I think he definitely gives off this little brother vibe that you just want to baby him so much. At least I do πŸ˜€

          Also, how lucky is Yoo jung working with all these handsome men? I’m looking forward to her progression as an actress, and her projects in the next couple of years.

    I was just about to snap back into reality and here you are posting this Girlfriday 😒😒😒
    My thoughts are pretty much incoherent right now so… more emojis! 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

    • 3.1 delurked

      Haha @stuffed you’re here too!! Bo-gum trash ftwww

  4. Fuuming

    This ahjumma – Ahem… I mean, “noona,” definitely sighed.

    • 4.1 aegi_omma

      Yep, she hit the nail on the head!

  5. delurked

    Bo-gum, you’ve described me so perfectly – I blush. 😚 -delusional-

    They both look great here!!

  6. Itenoria

    Awww Bo Gummie. Noona’s here to take care of you. Trust me. You’ll feel so comfortable in my presence that you’ll feel comfortable enough to fall asleep when I’m around, you know, just like Jang Mi did with Ki Tae. Of course, I’ll most likely pull a Ra On and spend the night staring at your gorgeous face all relaxed as you sleep, but what can I say? Perfection like yours has to be admired. And as for food, Noona will keep you so stuffed that you wouldn’t even have the strength to leave the house. Hehehehehe.

    • 6.1 stuffed

      Did you summon me 😜
      Haha. Sorry. I’m still in a daze

      • 6.1.1 Beanfan


      • 6.1.2 Chiisan


  7. ObsessedMuch

    Ooh these are beautiful! But aren’t some of the PBG photos quite old? I have seen them circulating on Pintrest for a while now!

  8. Viki

    They are both so pretty and swoon-worthy!

    Bogumie, are you talking about this noona?! Let’s be friends and I’ll care take care you and then…kekekeke

  9. Yoyo

    These pictures of PBG is better than any bedtime story. #swoon

  10. 10 godieagelimit

    *my cheeks hurt but i cant stop smiling like an idiot, pls help

  11. 11 Bora

    Dang Bo Gum

  12. 12 turnip

    ………..and the SIGH is real!!! Park Bogum’s eyes are totally lethal! Tsk tsk, you’re supposed to stay as a baby Taek to me! Hur

  13. 13 Erratic

    This pair is so beautiful. And Bo Gum-ssi is just so…

    (Lol. Take note. I don’t feel like calling him Bogummy anymore. He’s all man. XD)

  14. 14 Yren

    Bogum-ah don’t give false hope to this noona because I am slowly swaying from my decision to being just your noona into something more!! Hahahaha… I really adore both of you!! Here’s to Moonlight’s further success!!!

  15. 15 Lime Chilli

    I just finished reading the 200+ comments on the Moonlight recap and was just getting ready to go back to the 2000+ things I have to do in real life and then you posted this!!!!

    Dang there is so much pretty here. I don’t really want to take care of my man like his mom, but I might just do it for Bo Gum πŸ™‚

  16. 16 Peeps

    Hahaha! “she wanted to run away”. That’s so cute.

    Also, Bogummy πŸ™‚

    I am loving their show to the moon and back. Maybe even to mars.

    • 16.1 Chiisan

      That’s Eunuch Hong talking for real lol.

  17. 17 fan

    In TVN’s 2016 list, it said Park Bo gum prefers older ladies. lol. And he picked Lee Chung-ah as his ideal type one point of time (Too bad she already has bf from Flower boy ramen shop)

    • 17.1 fan

      btw anyone shocked at the news of our beloved Ji Soo- who had surgery for Osteomyelitis (and they are glad it is not bone cancer)

      • 17.1.1 fab

        WHAAAAT? What the hell, I just read in another post someone worried about Ji-soo and this it?! Owww poor puppy. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

      • 17.1.2 pogo


        Please let our puppy get well, I can’t even imagine how he must have felt having such a major health scare at such a young age.

        Osteomyletis is pretty serious, by the sound of it – I hope he gets all the time he needs to rest and recover and stop it from becoming a chronic condition.

      • 17.1.3 Nanda

        I literally stood upon reading…T_T puppy Jisoo be well!

      • 17.1.4 Michykdrama

        Oh dear. But osteomyelitis isn’t very good either. If it becomes chronic it can be very troublesome and require lots of repeated surgery and medication 😣 I hope he recovers fully from it.

      • 17.1.5 Erratic

        Sigh. His body is telling him to rest. Don’t worry, Ji-soo-ya, we noonas will still be here when you return. =D

    • 17.2 Christine

      I never wanted to be a noona so much
      (he’s an oppa to me)

  18. 18 Bonnie


  19. 19 Sancheezy

    Bo gum sshi is still an oppa for me,.

    • 19.1 Purple Owl

      Same! He’s 2 years older than me. So He’s still oppa.

    • 19.2 Chiisan

      I’m of the same age as Bogummy, but “As long as he’s good looking, he’s an oppa.” – said Sunwoo’s Mom. β™₯

  20. 20 Ariays

    Dawww. His ideal type sounds like it could be me! Noona is here for you, Bogum-ah! *Awaiting bricks to be thrown*

    • 20.1 Ariays

      But seriously. His ideal type totally sounds like Sung Deoksun tho. LOL.
      I shall be your Deoksun, Bogum-ah

  21. 21 nchoe

    β€œI like someone who’s comfortable like a friend, who also takes care of me like a mom.”

    I volunteer as tribute!

  22. 22 L

    I so love Bo-gummie.. But I dunno if I can be his mom though am sure by korean standards I am an ajumma now..!! God, let me live as Hong Song Nom for one day!! I shall be with my dream ppl around…

  23. 23 Ami

    Yoojung looks absolutely gorgeous in the first picture! She has this sort of ethereal beauty, just stunning!

  24. 24 lessa

    Are pajama tops or pajama like fashion the latest in KFashion?

    Not that Im complaining. It’s kindof cute.

    & comfy.

    • 24.1 fab

      It’s everywhere. The biggest designers have adopted this peculiar fashion trend.

      • 24.1.1 mary

        I like it better than tighter-and-tighter-and-tighter pants trend in recent years. πŸ˜€ Can’t wait when I can go out in my PJs and not have people stare at me like I’m crazy.

        But how to look as gorgeous as these models while in PJs…?

        • fab

          That’s easy, BE gorgeous. I just remembered JIW wore a pjs top for the majority of an episode in Cinderella.

  25. 25 Cass

    Thanks to JB for the recap and thanks to Girlfriday for posting this new pictorial!

    PBG always so amazing!

    I’ve seeing a good number of international viewers being overdramatic about the age gap of the actors in real life ignoring the fiction world of the drama and the historical facts of the time the drama is going through.

    I think they should go search and find out what teenagers do nowadays. Teenagers do so much more more than just kissing at 16. *wink*

  26. 26 Lisa_wackycashew

    LOL Bogummy, where’s the noona line-up? I’d better get in line. XD

    Seriously love these two! So talented, gorgeous, with a sweet personality to boot! No wonder they are such darlings to the audience. I’m happy for their drama’s success.

  27. 27 pogo

    awwww, none of him smiling? Probably just as well, this noona needs to get through the day alive.

    (also I just realised whose smile his reminds me of – Moon Chae-won! NOT his face, just his smile, they both have a similarly sunshine quality)

    • 27.1 Kiara

      I miss Moon Chae-won. I couldn’t watch her last drama so it feels like she’s been gone for a long time.
      I think I’ll go and rewatch War of the Arrows cause I miss that whole cast.

      • 27.1.1 pogo

        Moon Chae-won’s last drama was a mess and undeserving of her. I kind of wish she and oppa would team up for a drama sometime, I feel like I want to see him with an actress who could match him for gravitas and carry a drama equally with him.

        War of the Arrows is so, so fantastic. It’s one of the best movies I’ve ever watched in any language.

        • Kiara

          She would be the best or Park Bo-young. We can dream right?

  28. 28 ilikehim

    Is this from the same shoot and issue lf Elle because why are there no pictures of them together?! Come on, why waste thechemistry?!

    I am jealous that Kim Yoo Jung gets to call all three guys oppa. πŸ™

    • 28.1 Kiara

      They are all treating her like their little princess on the set. Hope they’d all remain friends irl and reunite in future projects.

    • 28.2 Mashimomo

      Park Bo-gum’s shoots were from April this year! I just read somewhere that Elle Korea re-released the pictures along with Kim Yoo Jung as a special to celebrate their drama’s popularity. Also – I would love to see a photo shoot with all the MDBC leads!

    • 28.3 Purple Owl

      I wish I could call dongsaeng-hyung, Dong Yeon oppa. Oh well, I’ll just keep calling him my made up term.

      • 28.3.1 ilikehim

        Holy shit, he’s 1997?! This whole time I was thinking he’s 1990/1991 and the oldest of the leads. I am completely mind blown. I had no idea he’s much younger than Park Bo Gum!
        I knew this cast was young, I didn’t realized HOW young.

  29. 29 Nami

    I guess he’s still longing for a mother because he lost her at such a young age. Probably one of his real life similiraties to the characters he plays/ed – CP and taek

    • 29.1 lee

      yoo jung is perfect for him.rather ra on i must say !!

    • 29.2 Celine

      Exactly. He’s robbed off motherly care at such a young age. I remember him talking about family and his mom in an interview for Reply 1988 and in Youth over Flowers trip.

      • 29.2.1 maryxiah

        I cried when I saw his audition interview in Youth Over Flowers.

      • 29.2.2 Michykdrama

        Oh dear. Really? My heart breaks for him. I have a super big soft spot for guys with a painful past that need comforting. Add it to his good looks, his earnest and endearing character and his desire to be taken care of and I’m literally a puddle of mush for him. He could not be more appealing even if he tried.

        I sincerely wish him all the best in his career and life from the bottom of my heart and hope he finds a good girl who will bring him happiness. ❀️

    • 29.3 Boomboompow

      I wasn’t very invested to R88 and only lasted like 6 episodes, but that scene in one of the early episodes where he has talking with Hyeri’s dad who just lost his mom – I bawled so hard.

      And again, when I read that PBG also lost his mom at early age like Taek.

  30. 30 nchoe

    Gosh… Bo Gum’s face is a piece of art. I hope Kim Kyu Tae PD-nim has any interest in working with him. I don’t mind seeing Bo Gum in nonstop close up shots *drooling*.

    • 30.1 Sancheezy

      hmm idk what to feel with bogum close up,
      I like kang haneul but when the close up happen, and repeteadly happen, it make me feel uncomfortable to see it, it doesn’t looked that good, the same feeling I have Jo In Sung,

      • 30.1.1 Celine

        When it happens too much it kinda feels off. lol I am also curious how I’d feel if PBG is given that level of close up shots.

  31. 31 lee

    what???? “brothers and sisters………………………………….!’
    no completely no yoo jung..dont drown my ship already. πŸ™

    • 31.1 fab

      No. No. She is just sixteen…

      • 31.1.1 lee

        still i want to ship them.common we have shipped YJG and her for ages

        • pogo

          Yeo Jin-gu’s just two years older than her, not six!

          (and I feel weird about shipping real-life people – their characters, sure. Them? No.)

          • lee

            seems i have to wait for shipping them.awwwww! completely shattered. thought they would be most cutest couple.does anyone know physiogamy .awww…drowned in my own ship πŸ™

          • Hyo8rim

            I have the same reaction. PBG might be handsome and all but I can’t just ship them. Maybe in the drama moon light drama but in real life no. I like KYJ with YJG.

          • Kiara

            They are my sageuk prince and princess. It’s always hard to warm up to the adults after their portion is over.
            I wouldn’t mind a reunion with Lee Min-ho 93.

          • Purple Owl

            @Kiara is this just Kiara?

            Or did you switch back from @The Other Kiara to Kiara?

          • Kiara

            @Purple Owl

            I’m done being The other Kiara, it’s too long lol. I’m back to Kiara :).

      • 31.1.2 Chiisan

        Well, their age difference is the same as Suzy and Kim Soohyun’s age difference around Dream High time.

        • Xixiah

          Mmm…probably i still have that ‘yoo jung is a child actress’ idea in my mind…personally i just cant ship park bobgum and yoo jung..hahahah..

    • 31.2 Celine

      They look good together but yeah, they’re more like brother and sister. I secretly shipped him with Irene who’s a noona to him!

    • 31.3 Kiara

      Oh I think the brother sister thing is really sweet. Ship them when she is legal lol.

      I hate waiting for her to grow up. She is so freaking talented but all her equally talented leading men are older.

      I saw this video of her and Kim Soo Hyun doing a pizza commercial of all things and they were so funny together. Almost want to see them in a comedy together it’s pretty crazy.

  32. 32 Potterhead ajhumma

    That perfect jawline, the neck, the glistening skin, the lips, the pout….
    Bogumieeee ❀️

  33. 33 Michykdrama

    Oh dearest PBG.

    I can’t explain what I feel for him. I know he is young, but he makes me want to take care of him and be taken care of by him as well.

    Because what I feel for him definitely isn’t motherly. I don’t feel this way about my own 3 year old son. Lol.

    Although I guess I do want to smother both in kisses and cuddle both. Hehe. Guess I’ll just have to settle for the 3 year old while he’ll still let me.

  34. 34 jichangwooklover

    I am only a year older than Bogummy so don’t feel that old yet. Imagining him calling me a noona though…. *sensored thoughts*.

  35. 35 Apple

    I think his answer is quite heartbreaking considering the fact that he lost his mom when he was a kid. :/

  36. 36 Pinny

    Well if they feel like dancing, maybe Bo-gum can do another version of boombastic so I don’t have to keep watching the one on repeat.

    • 36.1 sigalltheway

      YESS!!! love him and his confidence dance!

  37. 37 Luna

    Couple photoshoot pleaseeee πŸ™πŸ»

    • 37.1 lee

      yayyyyyyyyy to couple shoot

  38. 38 Alessar

    I finally started this show last night. I see why the ratings jumped to 20%. Scarlet Heart seems like a clunky mess in comparison.

  39. 39 Celine

    Awww Bogummy just wants someone who will take care of him. He seems to be a caring person as well from what others have said about him.

    I hope he finds a nice girl. I kind of ship him with Irene because they’re too cute as Music Bank MCs. It really looked like they were filming WGM. I know it’s scripted, but they had a natural chemistry. If Irene can act, I’d like to see them work together.

    I hope we get more photo shoots from KYJ and PBG. Hopefully a shoot with them together.

  40. 40 susan

    When asked about his ideal type, Park Bo-gum said, β€œI like someone who’s comfortable like a friend, who also takes care of me like a mom.”

    Could he be less appealing???

    That sound you hear is the collective sigh of all the noonas ’round the world.

    More like groan , but whatever.

    • 40.1 Mindy

      I can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic or not! Lol

      • 40.1.1 Purple Owl

        I don’t think they’re being sarcastic. I love Bo Gummie but I rolled my eyes at that because it’s a typical answer for men but he makes it soooooo perfect. And yet, I have 0.0000001% chance. I think that’s where the “collective groan” comes into play.

        I’m no noona but can I care for Gummie? I don’t even need to date him.

        • Dee

          HA. I’m getting behind this line here. I just want to look after him, I don’t need to date him.

      • 40.1.2 redfox

        the person doesnt like sweets, I guess. she wants to be a bitter granny

  41. 41 Mai

    I’m so mesmerised by Bo-Gum facial expressions. Such a great actor!!

  42. 42 clairie

    He just described Sung Deok Sun perfectly… and we know who that character is based on. *delulu shipper mode on* hehehe~ but honestly, I really hope that he find that kind of person

  43. 43 shenelini

    Like a mom? Okay, oppa, you can call me mommy anytime <333

  44. 44 Flightey Gazelles

    Lol, looks like even HE finds himself yummy, he keeps smelling himself (sensuously with eyes closed) and licking himself….. or is that lingering emotions from the last time we brushed hands?
    Don’t worry Bo Gum-ah, I promise to make more memorable next time and shall CERTAINLY give you Something to think wistfully about.

    Kim Yoo Jung is just beautiful and cool in that black & white pic with her hair styled like that (semi-fauxhawk? ) and that check shirt and tee. She really is stunning!!

  45. 45 Oppaslayer

    Noona will take care of you Bogummy 😍

    My Zumba class earlier had the Bombastic song on rotation. Please consider the calories I’ve burned as an offering to your altar of awesomeness. May it fuel the continues rise in ratings.

    Yoo Jung is such a sweet and beautiful creature.

  46. 46 royal

    I like someone who’s comfortable like a friend, who also takes care of me like a mom.”

    I would very much like to be included in this narrative!!!!!

  47. 47 JessA

    This noona definitely will take care of you Bo Gum! Although he is about 6 years younger than me, I sometimes feel like a cradle robber. But I can get over that real quick! πŸ˜‰

  48. 48 korfan

    Seriously, that Bo-gummy essence …. someone needs to put in a bottle to be tested because it’s causing side effects left and right!

    No doubt about it, this young man certainly has that special something.

    Three cheers for Moonlight!

  49. 49 Purple Owl

    Am I missing something? Why 7 pics of Gummie but only 2 of KYJ? I scrolled down hoping it would switch off between the two. Had to go back to actually look at PBG without disappointment.

  50. 50 Rebekah Walton

    I am the same age as Park Bo Gum, too bad! This drama has gotten me fangirling every second he is on screen.
