I love Moon Geun Young even when she’s plowing through acting dreck like Goddess of Fire. She has this earnestness in acting that makes her performances easy to watch even if it doesn’t always click all the way. Her sincerity also makes her a great actress to follow because I get the sense she acts because she likes it as a career and respects the profession. It’s a day job and she does it so well, what’s not the love? After her five month hiatus from the spotlight post the big news that she was dating her GoF co-star Kim Bum, she’s gradually eased back first by appearing at the Han Gong Ju movie premiere to support a same-agency hoobae and now she graces the pages of Marie Claire Korea in a photo spread that highlights her mature chic side. In transitioning to an adult actress its been hit-and-miss depending on her character hair and costuming, sometimes she looks like a kid and other times she’s all woman. My favorite look on her remains her Cinderella Unni style with a dash of dark edginess. This Marie Claire spread is moody and languid and totally lovely. News broke today that Moon Geun Young has been offered the female lead in the upcoming sageuk movie Sah Do opposite male leads Yoo Ah In and Song Kang Ho. She’ll be the wife of Joseon Prince Sado played by Yoo Ah In while Song Kang Ho is bound to be frightening as Prince Sado’s father King Young Jo. Moon Geun Young’s agency confirmed she received the script and is looking at it favorably, and even if she accepts it likely won’t influence whether she might also accept the lead in tvN‘s upcoming October drama Misaeng which is also courting her. Yay for a potential two project output this year from her!
