K-actress Kim So Hyun has been offered and has accepted the role as historical figure Goguryeo Kingdom era Princess Pyeongang in the sageuk drama formerly titled Cut By the Heart but is now called Moon Rising Over the River. The role starts out as a teenage princess who ascends her ambitions to rule her kingdom over her useless brother and enlists the help of the “idiot” Ondal of folklore legend.

The drama is helmed by the PD of Wind, Cloud, Rain and the screenwriter of Woman of 9.9 Billion, Night Light, Dr. Jin, and Time Between Dog and Wolf.
