The sweet quote, “I become someone different when I’m with you,” was revealed along with an image of Pyeonggang and On Dal together.

 

Lee Ji Hoon takes on the role of Go Geon, the top elite general of Goguryeo. His quote says, “I had everything and needed nothing more, but that all changed when I met you.”

 

Choi Yoo Hwa will be Hae Mo Yong who is determined to control Goguryeo. She holds a special power and hides a big secret.

 

Hae Mo Yong and Go Geon gaze into each other’s eyes in a still cut with the quote, “I’ve found myself gazing at your back turned on me as you face someone else.”

Kim So-hyun, Ji Soo starrer drama ‘The Moon Rising River’ confirms network, broadcast sched

The highly anticipated romantic-historical series The Moon Rising River, starring Kim So-hyun and Ji Soo, has finally confirmed its broadcast on KBS2 in the first half of next year!

The Moon Rising River will feature a reimagined depiction of Goguryeo’s popular urban legend about Princess Pyeonggang (Kim So-hyun, The Tale of Nokdu), who married the hunchbacked commoner Pabo Ondal or Ondal the Fool (Ji Soo, When I Was the Most Beautiful). It is said to tell Ondal’s foolish sacrifice and bittersweet love for Pyeonggang as she makes her way to become the kingdom’s first female Taewang or greatest king.

 

The upcoming series has been getting high attention lately due to its promising cast ensemble and solid production lineup. Acting star Lee Ji-hoon (Dinner Mate) has been pulled in to play Go Geon, an elite general who will vie with all his might for Pyeonggang’s love and affection, while My Dangerous Wife actress Choi Yu-hwa is set to bring in some serious relationship conflict as Hae Mo-yong, Go Geon’s beautiful yet secretive admirer who has the unique ability to see the future.

In addition, Baeksang Arts Awards’ most recent best actor, Kang Ha-neul (When the Camellia Blooms), is joining the main cast of characters as General On Hyeop, Ondal’s father and the dutiful leader of the Sunnobu region in Goguryeo. Kang will also be joined by supporting actors Wang Bit-na (King Maker: The Change of Destiny), Lee Hae-young (Stranger 2), Kim Bup-rae (Melting Me Softly), and Hwang Young-hee (Men Are Men), raising the viewers’ expectations for the drama to exciting lengths.

Helmed by PD Yoon Sang-ho of King Maker: The Change of Destiny (2020) and penned by screenwriter Han Ji-hoon of Woman of 9.9 Billion (2019–2020), The Moon Rising River is slated to air in March 2021 as KBS2’s Monday-Tuesday drama, replacing the historical rom-com series Royal Secret Agent.

Joining you guys in the waiting game here!

 

The story is sweet and the cast even more so. I'm here for Kim So-Hyun, Ji Soo and Kang Ha Neul, but even more so it's exciting to see Kim So-Hyun and Ji Soo pair up again. I saw them together in Page Turner and they really were playing off each other's characters well.

Kim So-hyun, Ji-soo play princess and the fool in upcoming KBS drama

 

Kim So-hyun (Tale of Nokdu) and Ji-soo (When I Was the Most Beautiful) in a romantic folktale sageuk. What’s not to love? New stills for KBS’s upcoming drama River Where the Moon Rises have been released.

 

Kim So-hyun plays the beautiful, intelligent, and a little power-hungry Princess Pyeonggang. In this drama adaptation of the folktale, she uses Ondal’s heart to advance her own goals, but in the process, falls in love herself. Ondal, the ever-sacrificing idiot who becomes a respected general, will be played by Ji-soo.

 

According to previous reports, Kang Haneul (When the Camellia Blooms) will be making an appearance at the beginning of the drama as Ji-soo’s father. His role will be instrumental in developing the arcs of our two characters. Lee Ji-hoon (ill You Have Dinner With Me) will play an elite general for Goguryeo, and Choi Yu-hwa (My Dangerous Wife) will play a person with special skills and hidden secrets.

 

To be honest costume-wise, Ji-soo looks exactly like his grown-up character from Scarlet Heart: Ryeo which makes sense since they’re pulling from the same Goguryeo era. He’s still rocking the long mane, but I do wish they would have left out that weird baby-Wolverine sideburn-facial hair. At first glance, I thought that Kim So-hyun looked a lot like Jin Se-yeon, but the intensity in her expression is definitely all her own.

 

Monday-Tuesday KBS drama River Where the Moon Rises, directed by PD Yoon Sang-ho (Saimdang, Light’s Diary) and written by Han Ji-hoon (9.9 Billion Won Woman), is slated to air in early 2021, after New Secret Royal Investigator finishes its run.
