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.
