Cast additions announced for MBC drama Red Moon, Blue Sun
Na Young-hee, Joo Seok-tae, Yeon Je-hyung
The supporting cast is shaping up nicely for the upcoming mystery thriller drama, Red Moon, Blue Sun. The leads, Kim Sun-ah (Should We Kiss First) and Lee Yi-kyung (Woohoo Waikiki) had been confirmed previously, and as the premiere date grows closer, we’re learning who else will be joining the cast.
In Red Moon, Blue Sun, a suspicious accident sows seeds of doubt in Kim Sun-ah’s life and sets her off on a search for the truth. Kim Sun-ah will play a children’s counselor named Cha Woo-kyung and Lee Yi-kyung will be playing the part of a violent crimes detective named Kang Ji-hoon.
The most recent cast addition is Joo Seok-tae (When Time Stops). He will be playing the part of Yoon Tae-joo, an elite doctor and the director of two counseling centers. He and Kim Sun-ah will engage in psychological battles with each other.
Dramaland every-mom Na Young-hee (Beauty Inside) has signed on to play Kim Sun-ah’s mother. She’s currently filming Beauty Inside and will be jumping straight into this drama for the role of Heo Jin-ok. Na Young-hee’s character married and had children very early on. As a result, she’s lived a largely sheltered life, with her husband and daughter (Kim Sun-ah’s character) looking out for her. Na Young-hee’s character is said to be composed to the point of coming across as cold.
Rounding out the latest additions is rookie actor Yeon Je-hyung (Children of a Lesser God). His character Kwon Chan-wook is a man with a sweet disposition who starts out working for the government’s intelligence division. But after a series of murders takes place, he begins working with the violent crimes unit.
The drama will air in November on Wednesdays and Thursdays, following My Secret Terrius on MBC.
