Jang Dong-yoon to play lead role in ‘Mung Bean Chronicles’ opposite Kim So-hyun

 

Jang Dong-yoon has been confirmed as the leading actor in a sageuk called Mung Bean Chronicles which already secured Kim So-hyun as the female lead.

The period romantic comedy, also called Joseon Loco: Nokdu Chronicles, is an adaptation of a hit webtoon of the same title and follows the life of Jeon Neok-du. Jang Dong-yoon (Mr. Sunshine, A Poem A Day) will play this character, who is described as an ambitious and hard working man. He dreams of expanding his horizons and uses that as an excuse to avoid marriage. He has brilliant looks and silky-smooth hair that most men envy. After an incident that leads him to a mysterious village dressed up as a woman, he meets a young lady named Dong Dong-joo.

 

Kim So-hyun (Radio Romance, Love Alarm) confirmed her role as Dong Dong-joo early this month. Her character is a trainee gisaeng with no sense of rhythm and music. She is obviously lacking in terms of musical talent but she can make anything using the right tools, prompting some of the villagers to call her Jang Yeong-sil, a renowned inventor who lived during the Joseon dynasty. She is hot-tempered and has a sharp tongue but she lives with a secret that she cannot tell anyone.

With a love story that is one of a kind, Mung Bean Chronicles is expected to bring laughs and tears to its viewers. It will be directed by Kim Dong-hwi of Fight For My Way and The Merchant: Gaekju 2015 and written by Baek So-yeon and Lim Ye-jin (Love in the Moonlight). The drama’s premiere is slated for September.

By abbyinhallyuland | April 29, 2019
 

COMPLETING THE DREAM CAST OF ANTICIPATED KBS JOSEON ROMANTIC COMEDY OFFERING IS RISING ACTOR JANG DONG YOON.

Tapped to portray the titular role of Nok Du, Jang Dong Yoon gears up to breathe life to a story based on a popular webtoon. Nok Du Jeon (literal title) depicts the story of a man who goes incognito as a woman. He infiltrates into a mysterious village of widows to escape getting married.

Coming from his most recent mini drama which is also female-dominated, Jang has been catching the attention of audience for his effective role portrayals. He last worked on coming-of-age KBS series, Just Dance, where he flaunted his dancing skills and made hearts flutter with his on-screen chemistry with Park Se Wan.

 

Scoring four dramas in the last three years, the rising actor has frequented youth themed dramas. But he proved his competence in mature roles with his quick stint in Mr. Sunshine and a supporting role in A Poem A Day.

 

The Joseon set romantic-comedy boasts impressive showrunners. Helming the project is Director Kim Dong Hwi of Fight For My Way and The Merchant: Gaekju 2015 fame. Penning the series is writer Im Ye Jin who worked on Love in the Moonlight and Who Are You: School 2015.

 

Looking forward to the confirmed headliners, the production team expresses confidence with Jang and Kim on board the project. They remarked how they had devoted keen deliberation so that the story can be painted vividly by the casted actors.

 

Nok Du Jeon targets airing date in September.

  • (Seoul = News 1) Reporter Kim Min-ji = Actress Jo Su-hyang is looking for TV theater with KBS 2 TV new Mon Tue drama 'Chosun Romcom Mung bean chronic' (directed by Kim Dong-hwi / scripts Im Yong-jin Baek So Yeon ).
    ..
    30 April the actress Jo Su-hyang's agency UL Co. announce that she will join the new drama 'Mung bean chorionic'".
    ..
    'Mung bean chronic' is a work based on Webtoon, which is about a man Jun Nok Du dress as woman and enter a mysterious widow village where he meet a giseang trainee Dong Dongju . Dong Dong-ju who is a reverse-witted giseang who does not want to become giseang. I draw a romantic comedy with a funny and pleasant Joseon version romantic comedy.
    ..
    Jo Su-hyang took over the role of a widow Kim-sop who had a faint impression of being blown when she hit a small, small body in 'Mung bean chronic'. She is one of the widows live in a simple room that wears a small, thin needle during the day, but at night she will be divided into a woman with two faces who turn into a warrior who shows off her martial arts skills by wearing only one sword.
    ..
    KIM Sop feels strange about the new widow Nok Du in the overseer, but every time she escapes, she fails to make a definite judgment. Rather, Kim Sop see Nok Du as a suspicious identity and the strangeness of each other between the identity has overflow of the pre-notice, it has increased the curiosity of viewers before the full-scale shooting .
    ..
    Jo Su-hyang, who was featured in the movie 'Wildflower' in 2014 and was awarded the 'Actor of the Year' prize at the 19th Pusan International Film Festival that year, attracted attention as a new rising artist. The movie 'snow road', 'Compatibility', ' Girls 'World', drama 'School 2015', and 'Beautiful sister who buys me food' have left strong impressions on viewers. Especially, 'weighting fairy Kim Bokju' is a rhythmic gymnastics prospect who is a prospect and plays a role as a prospect who stimulates the competitiveness of Song Shi-ho (Kyoung-soojin).
    ..
    Her role is the leader in widow village.
    • Mung bean chronic', the first time to challenge the historical drama, Jo Su-hyang is concentrating on martial arts practice for the character who is the leader of the widows' team and concentrating on raising the synchro rate with webtoon. The story of the drama that stimulates interest, and the colorful drama action to show off the body without buying the body will amplify the expectation.

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

 

Jang Dong Yoon (Just Dance) has now confirmed he will be joining Kim So Hyun (Radio Romance) to star in the new Korean historical drama Mung Bean Chronicles (or Mung Bean Pancake). He will play a man pretending to be a woman who is looking to avoid marriage, and  Kim So Hyun will be a gisaeng in training. I’m glad we have our main leads secured, and this drama sounds like it will be a lot of fun!

 

Mung Bean Chronicles is about a man (Jang Dong Yoon) 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 (Kim So Hyun) who doesn’t want to be gisaeng. 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.
