Kim Yoo Jung Completes Love Triangle with Park Bo Gum and Yook Sung Jae in Moonlight Drawn by Clouds

I wonder if there is too much good things going on with late summer sageuk Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. It can’t be a good thing to ramp up expectation this high all thanks to a one-two-three punch of excellent casting. Park Bo Gum is inked to play the male lead, Yook Sung Jae is reportedly onboard as the second male lead, and now they will get to fight over the charms of Kim Yoo Jung who has just confirmed that she will be the cross-dressing leading lady.

Cross-dressing sageuk heroines from Park Min Young in Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Lee Yoo Bi in The Scholar Who Walks the Night are all baby-faced types who wouldn’t pass for a man unless one was blind as a bat, so Kim Yoo Jung would fit right into this casting mold. Her involvement comes after a slew of actress names were floated from Kim Ji Won to Seolhyun to Kim Go Eun, but in the end I’m peachy keen with Kim Yoo Jung’s casting. At 17 years old she can play a romantic leading lady and since its a sageuk the romance will be of the staring longingly at each other chaste variety I’m sure.

The drama is about a cross-dressing girl who offers relationship advice and ends up a eunuch in the King’s palace. The screenwriter adapting the original source manhwa wrote Who Are You: School 2015 and the PD is from Discovery of Love.

  1. I love this actress, really, but I don’t really like when young actress (-18) take a role more mature than her age because you know that love story will be very platonic :p I understand that they want to protect the youth of these actresses but they should adapt to the role and not the opposite.

    • They do adapt the role. Hong RaOn is supposed to be in her teens, younger than the prince who is 19 y.o at the start of the story.

  2. I’m so happy KYJ got the role, she really suit it the original age of the lead girl in manhwa is about 17 year old too, I love KYJ in sageuk drama since the moon that embraces the sun

    • I thought it would be cool if they cast the same actor who played the chief eunuch from the moon-sun as the chief eunuch here too.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I prefer this over Kim Sae Ron and Yoon Shi Yoon especially since the latter is like 30?

    I can deal with 23 and 17 better XD

    Yook Sung Jae has played second leads with Kim So Hyun and now Kim Yoo Jung… Cool how that turned out!

  6. 6 years gap— not bad at all. Find it cute casting a teen on a drama,and much cuter cause t’would be yoo jung ah.. eeee can’t wait for u august!

  7. Aw I love Kim Yoo Joon. She stole thunder from the adult actress in The Moon Embraces the Sun. She always put her acting in control and her style is classic and delicate. I’m looking forward to her new drama as a leading lady with Park Bo Gum b/c so many fans raved about him.
