Kim So-hyun (Tale of Nokdu) and Kang Haneul(When the Camellia Blooms) are embarking on a new project together called River Where the Moon Rises. It’s a re-imagining of the classic romantic folktale of Princess Pyeonggang and Fool Ondal. 

 

In the original legend, the princess is exiled from the palace when she refuses to listen to her father, the king. She meets and falls in love with the beggar-idiot Ondal and they marry. Through her patience and wisdom, Ondal trains in archery and horsemanship to become unrivaled in the realm. At the national competition, the king bestows upon him the position of general, and when he realizes that Ondal is his daughter’s husband, there’s a heartwarming reunion. 

For River Where the Moon Rises, there’s a huge twist from the original legend. Kim So-hyun plays Princess Pyeonggang, who uses Ondal’s sacrificing heart to pursue her dreams to become the next king of Goguryeo. 

Set in the falling era of Goguryeo, the Princess Pyeongang in this drama firmly believes that it’s her life’s purpose to become the nation’s pillar and generate more honor so that its reputation won’t continue to falter. Although she was born a princess, she’s been trained as a killer, and her biggest ambition is to become the first female ruler of Goguryeo. 

Kang Haneul is to play Ondal’s father, Onhyeop who is the head of one of Goguryeo’s five great political factions. A dignified and humanistic patriot, he’s adored by the populace for being the people’s general. According to the production team of River Where the Moon Rises, he will play a big role in the first half of the drama.

Kim So Hyun to lead new historical romance drama, Kang Ha Neul joins as a special supporting character

 

1601962576-20201006-kimsohyun.jpg

 

Actress Kim So Hyun has finally confirmed her newest small-screen project, and she'll be working alongside actor Kang Ha Neul!

 

Kim So Hyun will be taking on the female lead role of an upcoming historical romance drama, 'Moon River' (working title). The tragic love story is based off of true historical figures from the Goguryeo dynasty, princess Pyeonggang and her husband Ondal

 

In the story, princess Pyeonggang of the Goguryeo dynasty grows up as a trained killer and soldier, burdened with the duty of restoring the Goguryeo dynasty's power and prestige to its former glory. As a powerful military head and a member of the royal family, Pyeonggang plots to take over the throne as the first empress of Goguryeo. However, when she meets an ordinary man named Ondal, she struggles with difficult emotions which threaten her power goals. 

 

Meanwhile, actor Kang Ha Neul will also be joining the cast of 'Moon River', but as a special supporting character. Kang Ha Neul plans on playing a short, but very impactful role in the story as military general On Hyup, Ondal's father. The presence of Ondal's father serves as an important influence in the male lead Ondal's life later on. 

 

Stay tuned for more casting news on 'Moon River', expected to air some time in early 2021.

4 Actors That Would Be Perfect With Kim SoHyun In Historical Drama "River Where The Moon Rises"

Kim So Hyun confirmed that she will be acting in the historical drama "River Where the Moon Rises". But no male actor was announced yet!

The drama will be recreating the famous Goguryeo traditional story of PyeongGang and OnDal. It tells the love story of PyeongGang who uses OnDal's feelings to become an empress and of OnDal who made foolish sacrifices.

Kim SoHyun is taking on the role of Princess PyeongGang. She is an ambitious woman who aims to make Goguryeo stands right again and dreams to become the first empress. However, she started to be confused by new emotions after meeting OnDal.

Kang HaNeul was cast as the father of Kim SoHyun in the drama.

The director Yoon SangHo ("Kingmaker: The Change of Destiny", "Different Dreams", "Saimdang, Memoir of Colors") and writer Han JiHoon ("Last", "Night Light", "Dr. Jin", "Time Between Dog and Wolf", "Woman of 9.9 Billion") are in charge. The drama will air in 2021.

The production team is still casting and fans can't help but wonder who could be the male lead along with Kim SoHyun. These 4 actors could do be perfect for the role.

Let us know in the comments and in the poll who do you think should take the role of OnDal according to you.

 

  1. Kim Dong Hee

 

 

Kim DongHee is a rising actor. He proved his perfect acting skills in "SKY Castle", "A-TEEN", "Itaewon Class" and "Extracurricular". He has yet to act in a historical drama but there is no doubt he would be perfect. Kim DongHee was born in 1999 like Kim SoHyun.

 

 2- Jung GunJoo

 

Jung GunJoo is a new face in the K-Drama world but with much potential. He is mainly known for his role in the popular drama "Extraordinary You" as Lee DoHwa. Since then, he acted in "Oh My Baby" proving he can be a solid lead. He would do a great couple with Kim SoHyun.

 

3. Kwak Dong Yeon

 

Kwak DongYeon is one of the most underrated actors. He has perfect acting skills and would match any role he is given. Moreover, Kwak DongYeon already acted in a historical drama, you would remember him in "Love in the Moonlight".

 

4- Seo KangJoon

 

Seo KangJoon would also be a great pick. He is an expert in romance and heart fluttering scenes but that is not all he also has perfect facial

expressions. It is time to see him again in a historical drama.

omg it's been what? 5 years since.. since they paired up with my one of my favorite KBS Special drama 2016 Page Turner. Yeah if that threat is still around, you'll see  my posts. I'm not sure when Ji Soo will be  doing his service but I hope he'll be part of this drama.  Haven't watch any of his drama since Bad Guys 2. 

 

As for Kim So Hyun. I've always like her.  She's good. Depending I think on the character she takes. In the future want to see something like the kind of role that IU did in My Mister.. gritty one.

 

But wait in this drama  Kang Ha Neul  will play a father role? Like father to Ji Soo's character? Can't wait to watch this!
