KBS young romance sageuk River Where the Moon Rises hasn’t been the awesome drama I had hoped it would be but now I have not one more but two more potential sageuk romance dramas to look forward to in the latter half of 2021. There is Hong Chun Gi with Kim Yoo Jung and Ahn Hyo Seob of course, but now I’m also totally stanning romance sageuk Yeonmo (Affection) with confirmed leads Ro Woon and Park Eun Bin. River was an original script, Hong Chun GI adapted from the same name novel, and Yeonmo is based off a manhwa about a Joseon King who is a woman in disguise and the man who is her tutor and first love who was raised as a girl when he was young. A few young actresses have tried the sageuk cross-dressing including Kim Yoo Jung, Park Min Young, and Moon Geun Young so Park Eun Bin is definitely walking in big shoes to see if she can pull it off. I kinda zoned out in Extraordinary You during the past life sageuk section so I can’t say if Ro Woon has the chops for a true sageuk role but he’s currently on my can-do-no-wrong list lol so I hope he can master more than just charisma and actually deliver the gravitas. The drama is headed into production right now with pre-filming planned and a fall 2021 airing date, with the PD of Another Oh Hae Young and The Beauty Inside with the screenwriter of Clean with Passion for Now and Joseon Gunman.
