Two leading lady names, both currently very popular, yet it elicits opposing reactions from me. KBS is prepping romantic sageuk Moonlight Drawn by Clouds for Mon-Tues in late summer, airing in August after Beautiful Minds wraps up. Rising actor Park Bo Gum turned down Entertainer with Ji Sung to take this drama so hopefully it’ll be worth his while. As a romance driven story his female lead will be critically important both for acting talent and chemistry needs, and right now I’m not certain who will land the role. Reportedly Seolhyun of AOA and mostly movie actress Kim Go Eun are both in talks for the drama’s female lead. Both actress agencies have either denied or been cautiously responded to the casting rumors so I’m going to chalk this up to another Girl Who Sees Smells situation, where a parade of potential female leads strolled past before the drama landed on the perfect choice of Shin Se Kyung for that role. If I had a choice then it’s Kim Go Eun all the way. Ink her now, KBS!
Kim Go Eun and Park Bo Gum have been friends since they costarred in the movie Coin Locker Girl, followed up by doing an adorable CF for brand G9. If she lands the female lead of Moonlight it’ll be her second promising drama casting following Cheese in the Trap. I still think her decision to pick that drama was 100% correct, it was a fantastic role for her plus there was no way she could predict the second half of CitT would go of the rails.
