Aw. Aww. Awww. Look how beautifully matching Park Bo Gum (Answer Me 1988) and Kim Yoo Jung (Angry Mom) are next to one another.
Okay, swooning aside. Couple of days ago, Moonlight Drawn by Clouds representative announced that they have confirmed all the casts, and I believe yesterday the casts had their first script read. As we already know, Bo Gum and Yoo Jung are the leads as Crown Prince Hyomyeong aka. Lee Yeong and Hong Ra On, which I have already covered in here and here.
Side note: Bo Gum looks gorgrous in that white shirt & washed-off jeans! And long time no see, black hair. I miss those black hair; it suits him better. Soooo happy that it’s back.
What we did not know for months (feels like ages ago) is who else is in and who is out. So turns out Yook Sung Jae is out, but B1A4 idol singer Jin Young (Miss Granny) is in, and cast as Kim Yoon Sung, whom I see as the third wheel that will be fighting for Ra On’s heart. Hmph. He’s already in my black list before the show even begin, LOL! However, I am quite confident that him meddling in the love triangle can’t shake the OTP’s hearts at all. Like c’mon, we all know how the novel ends by now, right?
Uri Taekie has upgraded himself to be the father of a pair of twins. Sniff sniff. Is he going to play a grandfather after this drama?
NEW from novel: Lee Yeong and Kim Yoon Sung are related; they are cousins. Aishhh. As if the love triangle is not annoying enough.
Chae Soo Bin (Sassy Go Go!) is cast as Crown Princess Jo Ha Yeon. Another third wheel. Now this. This I did not expect! I must say I was not happy when the news broke out that there is a crown princess. Of course there has to be one, how silly and naive of me to believe uri Bo Gum is playing a virgin cold-prince with no other wives but Ra On. *Lighting strikes* *Draws circles in a corner* Arggggghhhhhh.
… worst of all, it seems that she is a good person and really does like Lee Yeong. Now that complicate things—a lot. Her character does not appear until very much later in the novel, but I expect her to appear quite quickly in the drama to create conflicts for the OTP. In the novel (if I remember what I read correctly), she was torn in between her family and her heart because supposedly her family tries to kill prince Hyomyeong. Thus, I fully expect this to happen in the show too, and she can, maybe, divorce Lee Yeong after that? Yeah? OK? Deal. Note: This isn’t how it happens in the novel; it’s just me blabbering on how I want it happen.
Newbie actor Lee Seo Won (Uncontrollably Fond) plays Kim Byung Yeon, Lee Yeong’s best friend and first friend of Ra On when she enters the palace. Should I be glad that the character of Kim Byung Yeon is a man with very little words?—hence being a complete newbie would not affect the general enjoyment of this show? I like to think he has some acting chops up his sleeves, but I think it is best I keep my expectation low first.
Other casts confirmed are Cheon Ho Jin (Six Flying Dragons) as Kim Jo Soon. Kim Yoon Sung’s grandfather. Hmm… is he a friend or a foe?
Jang Gwang (Yong Pal, Moorim School) is Hang Sang Ik—said to be the chief enunch who helps Ra On becoming a enunch in the palace. Ehhh? Which one is that? Judging from the novel, ‘helps to become a enunch’ seems to be the wrong description. Is he the one who tricks her or the one who also serves the prince, and is gossipy yet has the special ability to know all the people that comes and goes in the palace? I am betting for the latter.
Kim Seung Soo (Family Secrets) who plays the useless King Sunjo. No comment about this character. I’m sure I’ll hate him immediately, LOL.
Lastly, Jo Seung Yeon (Six Flying Dragons) also joins Moonlight Drawn by the Clouds, as he revealed on his own instagram that he will be Crown Prince Hyomyeong’s teacher. It is now confirmed the above picture is taken at the first script read based on Bo Gum’s apparel.
So there we have it—the main casts that complete this drama. Aren’t we all glad the cats are all out of the bag now? And is also glad that things can finally start rolling. I miss seeing the boy on-screen. So hurry up, show.
Moonlight Drawn by Clouds is reported to air on August 15, 2016.
