KBS has done well with casting upcoming youthful romance sageuk Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, despite a tiny blip in the middle. The leads for the manhwa to drama adaptation has finally been confirmed, with Park Bo Gum pairing up with Kim Yoo Jung as the leads while Jinyoung of B1A4 and Chae Soo Bin step into the role of the second leads. Park Bo Gum passed on Entertainer on SBS to do this drama, which makes so much sense after Hyeri got cast since it would just be a refresh of their Answer Me 1988 acting together, and in this case he gets to romance sageuk IT child actress now grown up in Kim Yoo Jung. Initially it looked like popular young idol-actor Yook Sung Jae would sign on as the second male lead but he ultimately passed but I’m not terribly disappointed since I like Jinyoung as well for his puppy cuteness and ability to sell his own brand of boyish angst. Moonlight Drawn by Clouds is also confirmed to air on Mon-Tues to premiere in late August following Beautiful Mind.
Since it’s a sageuk there’s bound to be veteran actors playing various royals and ministers, and in this case it’s Chun Ho Jin and Jang Kwang.
