River Where the Moon Rises PD picks Na In-woo for next project
Rising actor Na In-woo (River Where the Moon Rises, Mr. Queen) has been cast in a new drama called Jinx Lovers. It’s a webtoon-based fantasy romance about a poor, luckless man who meets a chaebol family’s hidden goddess of luck, Seul-bi.
Na In-woo plays the main male lead, Gong Soo-kwang, a fish pedlar working at the Seodong market. He once had a bright future, but due to a meeting with Seul-bi seven years ago, his fortunes were reversed. He’s now the possessor of the worst luck in the world, which he’s accepted as his destiny. However, he meets her again when she re-enters the human world in order to free herself from a curse, and things begin to change for him.
Despite the rocky start of River Where the Moon Rises (due to the male lead switch), Na In-woo was lauded for his steady acting skills. He has even been nominated for rookie-of-the-year at the 57th Baeksang Arts Awards.
Written by Jang Yoon-mi (Cheer Up, Mr. Lee, Luck-Key) and directed by Yoon Sang-ho (River Where the Moon Rises), Jinx Lovers will begin production in the latter half of this year. Right now, it’s been reported that the production team are looking for the right “Rapunzel-esque” actress to fill the female lead role.
