It’s male lead Ji Soo‘s turn in the spotlight for the promos of upcoming KBS sageuk River Where the Moon Rises and oh boy I’m ready to do an about turn on his casting. His first sageuk outing was rough to say the least but this time it feels like the role was written for him. He plays Ondal, the Fool character in the folktale, a man from the mountains with no education and all heart. He falls for warrior princess and politician Princess Pyeonggang played by Kim So Hyun and she utilizes him to help in her end goal. As long as she truly loves him then I have no problem with that, but with such stories it always ends in rocks fall down endings because sageuks, they rip your heart out ha. I love this Ji Soo centric trailer which shows how perfect he looks in character, earnest and more muscle than brain but who cares because he already seems like he will do anything for his girl. The funniest aspect is the glimpse of him with Kang Ha Neul guest starring as his dad On Hyeob and imma wonder how old Kang Ha Neul would have been to birth a son as old as Ji Soo.
