Actress Kim So Hyun has chosen her next small-screen project - a new KBS historical romance, based off of a popular webtoon!

 

The upcoming new series, titled 'Nok Du Jeon', tells the story of a man (Jeon Nok Du) who infiltrates a mysterious village of widows undercover as a woman. Kim So Hyun has been cast in the role of Dong Dong Joo - a courtesan-in-training who can't sing, dance, or keep up with a rhythm to save her life, but who can build anything with a few tools in her hands. 

 

Dong Joo, who also holds a deep, dark secret from her past, runs into trouble when she meets a strange widow named Jeon Nok Du. The series will be produced by Lee Dong Hwi PD of 'Fight My Way', and written by scriptwriter Lim Ye Jin ('Moonlight Drawn by Clouds', 'School 2015', etc) and Baek So Yeon

 

Stay tuned for news on the actor to be cast as Jeon Nok Du in 'Nok Du Jeon', airing some time this September!

Ha ha..still hoping they could cast Sungjae because I've been dreading the day they'll co-star in a drama as leads, since this will be written by the same writer of Who are You-School 2015 :D. Or maybe because Sungjae doesn't look much of a woman in a crossdress? :unsure: Haven't seen him in one. Perhaps that's why Jang Dong Yoon might fit the role based on his looks.

Last time I checked, I was a heterosexual male. But she-Sungjae is so pretty that I started to doubt it :huh:.

Kim So Hyun to Star in “Mung Bean Chronicles”; Jang Dong Yoon Also Offered Lead Role

Posted on April 5, 2019by Kay

Mung Bean Chronicles Korean Drama - Jang Dong Yoona and Kim So Hyun

 

Kim So Hyun (Radio Romance) has accepted an offer to star in the upcoming Korean historical drama Mung Bean Chronicles (or Mung Bean Pancake). Mung Bean Chroniclesis about a man who disguises himself as a woman to live among a community of women so that he won’t have to get married and a hot-tempered woman who doesn’t want to be gisaeng.

 

Kim So Hyun will play our reluctant potential gisaeng whose life is turned upside down by this mysterious man. I’m always up for a Kim So Hyun drama! And just keep bringing on those historicals! This year sure is doing its best to make up for last year’s historical drought.

 

This drama sounds like a lot of fun especially with the reverse of the typical cross-dressing role with a man pretending to be a woman this time around. An offer is out to Jang Dong Yoon (Just Dance) to star as our cross-dressing man, which would be quite a fun role for him. The drama comes from the writer of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds and the PD of Fight for My Way.

 

Mung Bean Chronicles is planning to air later in 2019 on KBS.

Jang Dong Yoon Confirmed For Upcoming Historical Rom-Com With Kim So Hyun

Jang Dong Yoon has been confirmed to star alongside Kim So Hyun in upcoming drama “Mung Bean Chronicle” (literal title).

Based on a popular webtoon of the same name, “Mung Bean Chronicle” is a historical rom-com about Jeon Nok Du, a man who disguises himself as a woman to join a mysterious all-woman community, and Dong Dong Joo, a woman who does not want to become a gisaeng.

Jang Dong Yoon will be playing Jeon Nok Du, a man with extraordinary ambition to experience the big, wide world. With looks, brains, and athletic abilities, he is the epitome of perfection. After being swept up in an incident, he joins the all-female community where men are forbidden and meets Dong Dong Joo.

Kim So Hyun will be taking on the role of Dong Dong Joo, a prickly gisaeng trainee. Along with her fiery personality, she is clumsy, has absolutely no sense of rhythm, and is tone-deaf, which makes all of her peers look after her. However, she is skilled with her hands as she can make anything if given the right tools. Unable to stand injustice, she speaks her mind.

Song Geon Hee has also been confirmed to join the drama as Jeon Nok Du’s older brother Jeon Hwang Tae.

The production staff stated, “It is a drama where Jeon Nok Du and Dong Dong Joo’s charms as original characters are very important. We worked hard in casting to make this come to life. Jang Dong Yoon and Kim So Hyun will create a kind of fresh and fun synergy that does not have to be explained. Please look forward to the two as they bring alive the original work and add their own color.”

The drama will be directed by producing director Kim Dong Hwi, who previously directed dramas such as “Fight My Way” and “The Merchant: Gaekju 2015.” It will be written by Im Ye Jin, who previously wrote popular dramas such as “If We Were A Season,” “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds,” and “Who Are You,” as well as Baek So Yeon, who previously wrote “Kang Deok Soon’s Love History.”

“Mung Bean Chronicle” is slated to air its first episode in September.
