I feel like so many things in my drama loving past have converged like some sort of imploding sun, and in a good way of course. K-actress Kim Yoo Jung has been offered the female lead of the titular sageuk Hong Chun Gi, and she was my first pick so it’s rare that I get my dream casting lol. The sageuk is adapted from the same name novel by the writer who also wrote The Moon Embraces the Sun and Sungkyunkwan Scandal so the source material is not in doubt. If she accepts Kim Yoo Jung will be playing Hong Chun Gi, a talented Joseon era painter and the first female royal palace painter. She is extraordinarily beautiful but paints not for glory but simply to make money. She enters the palace and thus ensues a love triangle with the blind palace astrologer and the dashing playboy prince. Ahn Hyo Seob has been cast as one of the male leads already so hopefully the final leg of the triangle is confirmed soon as I can start picturing everyone together.
