Okay, the two cuties are just wayyyyy too cute, I think I may be able to watch this drama regardless of whether it’s written or directed well. The combo of Kim So Hyun‘s cool perfection and Ji Soo‘s hotheaded earnestness for upcoming sageuk River Where the Moon Rises feels like the ideal opposites attract in both their personas off screen and their onscreen characterization. The first teaser and filming stills were released last week before the new year so it’s a bit backwards to get the script reading stills but better late than never. I also love the bits I see of second male lead Lee Ji Hoon, he’s so compelling as the grey and not totally nice dude who is still seeking acceptance, lol clearly he’s been pigeonholed in prior dramas but delivers with aplomb and from his description here seems on the same track so gimme moar! The second teaser is also out and this looks like such a throwback to action packed sageuks like Jumong and Queen Seondeok.
