New poster and stills for KBS sageuk River Where the Moon Rises

River Where the Moon Rises is the drama I’m most looking forward to in 2021, and it’s released new stills. In this Goguryeo sageuk romance, Ji-soo (
When I Was the Most Beautiful
) and Kim So-hyun (Love Alarm) respectively play a village-idiot-turned-general and a princess who wants to be king.

The poster shows a shadowy outline of Kim So-hyun on horseback, with Ji-soo’s face in the clouds. The text reads, “A general whose love became history, On Dal” and “A princess whose entire life was Goguryeo, Pyeonggang.” The stills show Kim So-hyun also on horseback, rocking some armor and engaging in battle.

This folktale adaptation drama has all the ingredients to be awesome. A kickass female lead with strong ambitions, and a supportive romantic male partner who knows how to sacrifice. Kim So-hyun and Ji-soo have worked together before in a short, youth drama Page Turner, where their chemistry was off the charts so I have high hopes. As long as the plot doesn’t get too mired in noble idiocy like Ruler-Master of the Mask, River Where the Moon Rises has great potential.

KBS Monday-Tuesday drama River Where the Moon Rises will start airing on February 15.

Wow, it's like KSH aged five years overnight (in a good way.) In these stills, she has none of the petulant resting face with which I am familiar. It's only appearances but her current look is much more befitting the character description.

She's completely become her character and it's a good look on her.

I saw on another site where someone said KSH looks a bit like Go Ara in those pics, and then complained that they couldn't un-see it.

Argh!

If it's like QSD then I'll watch. It seems like Yushin and Deokman sort of relationship.

I'm intrigued by how much the drama will balance out politics and romance. The characters sound very interesting and I'm looking forward to the action scenes. I always feel like sageuk dramas do action choreography better than modern dramas.

She does and very fierce. Her warrior aura is strong. I'm looking forward to seeing her full princess attire.

Oh, I forgot they were both in Page Turner! I cannot watch sageuks for very long because I am a wimp, who can't do torture and blood, but I am mightily tempted for these two.

KSH look so good here. I think she change her eyebrows shape. That makes her look fierce, no longer babyish as before. This sure fit well with this character. I really looking forward to watch this.
