Potential Hyeri, Yoo Seung-ho sageuk project in the works
Hyeri, Yoo Seung-ho
It’s been reported that Hyeri (Miss Lee) and Yoo Seung-ho (Memorist) have both received offers to star in KBS’s upcoming When Flowers Bloom, I Think of the Moon. The project is a sageuk drama set in the Joseon dynasty during a period of history that had the strictest alcohol prohibition laws. If Hyeri accepts, it will be her first-ever sageuk.
When Flowers Bloom, I Think of the Moon will tell the story of a woman who secretly brews liquor, a civil bureau servant tasked with enforcing the prohibitionist policies, and an alcoholic crown prince who goes as far as climbing over the palace walls to get a drink.
Hyeri has been offered the part of the woman brewer. She who was born to an aristocratic family but life dealt her a rough hand. Her father died when she was thirteen years old and her mother fell ill soon after, and she effectively became the family’s breadwinner. She worked hard to cover the costs of her mother’s medicine and her older brother’s books. She did all types of odd jobs to a futile financial end, and it came to the point where even the neighbor’s slaves began to look down upon her and her family. Despite looking every inch the noble lady, she’s tough and as strong as any man.
Yoo Seung-ho was offered the part of the civil bureau servant, an inspector who burns with passion to succeed in order to restore his family’s honor. There’s no word yet on who might play the crown prince.
Directed by Hwang In-hyuk (Doctor Prisoner) and written by Kim Joo-hee, When Flowers Bloom, I Think of the Moon will begin airing in the latter half of this year.
