Kim Eun Sook’s 2020 Drama Confirmed with Second Chair PD of Descendants of the Sun and Moonlight Drawn by Clouds

Hit K-drama screenwriter Kim Eun Sook is elevating one of her previous drama’s assistant PDs to the head role for her yet untitled next drama. It’s confirmed for March 2020 and she will be working not with her long time PD collaborator Lee Eun Bok of Descendants of the Sun and Goblin but with his second chair PD Lee Sang Hoon. PD Lee also was the second chair on Moonlight Drawn by Clouds and the first chair of teen drama Who Are You: School 2015. I don’t think Kim Eun Sook has issues with Lee Eun Bok who directed her most recent drama Mr. Sunshine, she has a stable of directors she likes and did many earlier dramas with PD Shin Woo Chul. But the twist here is that PD Lee Sang Hoon will reportedly be choosing the leads for this upcoming drama and not Kim Eun Sook. Interesting…..

Kim Eun Sook’s 2020 Drama Confirmed with Second Chair PD of Descendants of the Sun and Moonlight Drawn by Clouds — 34 Comments

  1. Oh how I wish they would cast Kim So Hyun for this drama. I have no idea what the genre is or the age of the leads but it would be great to see her reunite with the PD who clearly has a soft spot for her.

    • lee sang hoon and lee eun bok both favor her she was hand cast by both for their respective dramas her cameo in goblin was specially requested by the pd and became extremely popular

    • Do you even need to ask? It will be a romance genre with some rich Alpha male and candy heroin. Mr Sunshine was less her usual trope but the schematic was more or less the same. Well unless this is a high school or college drama I don’t see Sohyun being cast but it be great to see her work with KES eventually.

      • Why would she be too young? You don’t even know the plot for the drama. I think she would be a great choice for any writer at any age since she is extremely talented.

  2. Who Are You is an epic drama and I re-watch it even today! Best trio of actors ever in a high school drama!! KES has the same sort of scripts but her dramas always hit big!

    • OMG my TaeBi heart still needs justice to be done! The director should cast them again and give them a happy ending so we can have our closure!

  3. Why do I feel like this will be a reunion drama for Lee Minho and Park Shinhye? DOTS was really bad storywise but it was pretty.

  4. Gonna bet this is the military comeback project for KSH. Don’t care who the actress is since she won’t be anything but some damsel in distress.

  5. Isn’t he also the same pd for secret love? If we are dream casting is it possible to get HJE? I know she overacts for romcom but in melo she is brilliant and she counts as A-list.

  6. Kim So Hyun! She clearly has reunited with many of her previous pds and screen writers or production teams in different dramas , hopefully it will be the case here.

    Even if not main lead. Second female lead or cameo will be great too.

    • Kim so hyun looks good in villainous role. Else her expressions are same throughout. See ruler. She has same face expression.

      • I agree she would be great in villain roles cause she done so well in the past. But I know your post is more of a negative put down on Kim So Hyun. Ruler was a mess but if you watched her in bring it in ghost, school 2015, page turner, goblin and etc , you will see how expressive she is.

      • You clearly haven’t seen a single drama of hers. She is known as the queen of expressions and she slays in negative roles but is amazing in positive ones as well. You should really put some effort into seeing all her amazing acting. Nightmare High, Page Turner, We All Cry Differently, Radio Romance, Who Are You: School 2015, Let’s Fight Ghost and even her cameo roles are brilliant example Goblin, I Can Hear Your Voice and While You Were Sleeping. Versatility is her strength.

    • @Cute energy @Lol @Loll – stop changing your usernames! KYJ is younger than KSH so if YOU SAID KSH is too young to be in a KES drama, then KYJ is totally disqualified based on your @Lol comment. You are just one KYJ stupidest fan.

    • Yes to PBG and Suzy but no to a tentative OTP because they don’t suit in my opinion. With anyone else for sure. Both are Visually compelling but PBG will carry that drama whilst Suzy walks around all doe eyed and on cue with her lines it will be a chore watching. My bet is on Kim Soo Hyun for male lead and female lead really don’t know too many good actresses to choose from. My wish though is Kim Yoo Jung because after finishing Moon embracing the sun I’m so down for KSH and KYJ as OTP. ❤️

  7. It’s kind of hard to say actor’s name when we don’t know anything about the story… She always had good actors in her dramas. I think the weakest was Heirs PSH and LMH didn’t have a good chemistry, PSH had a better chemistry with KWB.

    • Yes sorry I didn’t write but story is King in this so would like to see what KES has planned. Quite exciting though.

    • oh well, I did not watch Mr Sunshine because of the male lead, and I probably won’t watch this drama too… LMH’s acting was always mediocre…. maybe he will improve after MS?
