Mystery-thriller Red Moon Blue Sun releases new stills
This drama looks intense and tragic already. Red Moon Blue Sun recently released new stills of its main characters, played by Kim Sun-ah (Should We Kiss First) and Lee Yi-kyung (Woohoo Waikiki). In this new MBC drama, a suspenseful story unfolds about a woman who meets a strange child. That meeting is the beginning of her entanglement in a mysterious case. With only a poem for a clue, she begins her search for the truth.
Kim Sun-ah plays the main character, a child psychologist who is a dutiful daughter and a devoted wife, and Lee Yi-kyung is the violent crimes detective whom she meets along the way. Lee Yi-kyung doggedly pursues the person behind this series of mysterious crimes. His character is a rule-follower who also has great instincts when it comes to investigations, which makes him so good at his job.
In the stills below, he’s shown with his face all cut and bruised, but he’s clearly more concerned about his case than his face. Whereas, Kim Sun-ah looks like someone’s completely knocked the wind out of her, as she stares at something in complete shock. Oh no, I hope no one dies.
Honestly, I’m looking forward to Kim Sun-ah, because her recent works haven’t really been my cup of tea (although I’ve heard she was superb in both Woman of Dignity and Should We Kiss First). According to reports, she was so immersed into acting from day one at the script read that she spilled tears during the first reading of a scene. Man, she’s such a powerful actress. Of what I’ve seen of Lee Yi-kyung, he’s great when he’s playing a lovable idiot and this turn as a serious detective will let show off his acting skills. I’m happy to see that he’s gotten this break in his career, where he’s the lead and has the opportunity to express his range in a more complex character.
MBC Wednesday-Thursday drama Red Moon Blue Sun, directed by Choi Jung-kyu (Triangle) and written by Do Hyun-jung (Village: Secret of Achiara), will begin airing on November 21, taking over the slot of My Secret Terrius after it finishes its run.
