Hot on the heels of confirming the full cast of saguek Moonlight Drawn by Clouds comes the first look at said cast together. Woohoo for the visuals being as youthfully complementary as I envisioned, all cheekbones that can slice cheese and bright cheery smiles. Starring Park Bo Gum with Kim Yoo Jung, the supporting roles are rounded out by Jinyoung of B1A4, Chae Soo Bin, and Lee Seo Won to cement this as the next young adult sageuk much like Sungkyunkwan Scandal made a splash six years ago back in 2010. Or maybe what The Moon Embraces the Sun could have been if it was a drama consisting solely of the teenage actors. Ryu Jun Yeol has shown himself capable of the screen presence to headline a prime time drama with Lucky Romance, now it’s Park Bo Gum’s chance to show that he’s more than just the sweetest smile in K-ent.
Moonlight Drawn by Clouds doesn’t air until August 1st after Beautiful Mind on Mon-Tues, but the cast gathered for the script reading means it’s startling filming now with lots to prep for with the sageuk genre. Directing is the PD behind Discovery of Love and Big, with the screenwriter for Who Are You: School 2015 adapting the original manhwa for the drama series.
