The first look last week at Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds had me clapping with excitement, it was a picture of the two leads smiling beatifically at each other like no one else was around. Casting leads with palpable romantic chemistry is lightning in a bottle and I loved how these two young cuties fairly beamed with affection at each other. There’s more stills out now from the drama, including idol actor Jinyoung from B1A4 as the second male lead after Yook Sung Jae passed on the role.
I like Jinyoung but his role here sounds like the stalwart warrior scholar who is fated to never get the girl so I’m glad Park Bo Gum is the male lead because I like him ever more and he’s going to get the girl so I’m all set. I am slightly worried at how much younger Kim Yoo Jung looks in this role now that I’m seeing full stills of her. The age difference of the leads is Kim Soo Hyun-Suzy from the Dream High days so it’s not a problem, I simply don’t buy her character passing as a cross-dressing man due to her youthful girlish visage.
