I love Moon Geun Young but never feel terribly sad when she takes long breaks between acting projects, or even when she chooses dud dramas. She’s got a life outside of acting and a smart level head on her shoulders so I figure she’s happy doing whatever else when there’s a long time between hearing of her return to acting. Being a renowned child actress is so hard, skipping the rising part of the career and hitting the big leagues so young, it takes a lot more work to keep a high flying career continuously high flying.
Her last drama was the abominably stupid and dull sageuk Goddess of Fire Jungyi two years ago, and aside from doing the sageuk movie Sado slated for release later this year, I haven’t heard a peep about a return to drama land. Until now, and the news is a big one to boot! Moon Geun Young has received the offer for Chaebol’s Daughter (True Romance) airing on SBS Mon-Tues, which is also courting Park Seo Joon for the male lead. Industry insiders had mentioned Han Groo being in talks for the drama but it might now appear it was for the second female lead role. I don’t even care who gets the rest of the roles in this drama, if Moon Geun Young is in then I am not missing it for the world.
Earlier this year Moon Geun Young was in Japan to promote the Japanese airing of GoF and with it comes two more photo spreads published exclusively in Japanese entertainment magazines. Super duper love how gorgeous she looks, this is my favorite hairstyle on her by far. Moon Geun Young’s role in Chaebol’s Daughter is the youngest child of a chaebol family who hides her identity and becomes a supermarket clerk in order to find true love without strings attached. It’s basically the exact opposite of her poor girl dark Candy girl role in Cheongdamdong Alice.
