OMFG, what? Jung Il Woo has confirmed that he’ll be starring in MBC’s upcoming historical fantasy drama, The Moon That Embraces The Sun. As you may recall, the drama has already casted Han Ga In and Kim Soo Hyun as the leading couple. Jung Il Woo will be taking the role of Prince Yang Myung, who’s Kim Soo Hyun’s older half-brother in the drama and next in succession for the throne. You can be sure to expect some political shenanigans and romantic conflicts ahead. And a lot of cute scenes as well, since it’s penned by the writer that brought us Sungkyunkwan Scandal.
The role was originally offered to Joo Won, who, by the way, is currently gaining attention for his acting in Okakkyo Brothers. I’m assuming that he declined the offer and the role was offered to Jung Il Woo instead.
Kim Soo Hyun and Jung Il Woo in a fusion sageuk? With long hair? Oh my gosh, I can already imagine the awesomeness ahead. Holy moley. What’s a girl gonna do when two of her favorites star in one drama together and compete for the affections of the same girl. Clear out her schedule in January, that’s what.
Please let this be good, drama gods, I beg you! Better yet, I hope it becomes my new crack. Is it 2012 yet?
The drama airs in January, following Me Too, Flower.
