Kim So-hyun, Ji-soo play princess and the fool in upcoming KBS drama
Kim So-hyun (Tale of Nokdu) and Ji-soo (When I Was the Most Beautiful) in a romantic folktale sageuk. What’s not to love? New stills for KBS’s upcoming drama River Where the Moon Rises have been released.
Kim So-hyun plays the beautiful, intelligent, and a little power-hungry Princess Pyeonggang. In this drama adaptation of the folktale, she uses On Dal’s heart to advance her own goals, but in the process, falls in love herself. On Dal, the ever-sacrificing idiot who becomes a respected general, will be played by Ji-soo.
According to previous reports, Kang Haneul (When the Camellia Blooms) will be making an appearance at the beginning of the drama as Ji-soo’s father. His role will be instrumental in developing the arcs of our two characters. Lee Ji-hoon (ill You Have Dinner With Me) will play an elite general for Goguryeo, and Choi Yu-hwa (My Dangerous Wife) will play a person with special skills and hidden secrets.
To be honest costume-wise, Ji-soo looks exactly like his grown-up character from Scarlet Heart: Ryeo which makes sense since they’re pulling from the same Goguryeo era. He’s still rocking the long mane, but I do wish they would have left out that weird baby-Wolverine sideburn-facial hair. At first glance, I thought that Kim So-hyun looked a lot like Jin Se-yeon, but the intensity in her expression is definitely all her own.
Monday-Tuesday KBS drama River Where the Moon Rises, directed by PD Yoon Sang-ho (Saimdang, Light’s Diary) and written by Han Ji-hoon (9.9 Billion Won Woman), is slated to air in early 2021, after New Secret Royal Investigator finishes its run.
