The anticipation for Lee Joon Ki’s new historical drama is already sky-rocketing.
Based on a Chinese novel, ‘Moon Lovers – Scarlet Heart: Ryeo” will be airing on SBS from August 29. The drama follows the tale of Go Ha Jin who travels back in time due to a total eclipse, and ends up in the Goryeo era. Stuck in a state of political turmoil, she becomes involved in an interesting love story with the 4th Prince “dog-wolf” Wang So, who is feared by all. An interesting historical drama filled with political plot twists, and some good-natured imperial fun – this drama is definitely raising our expectations.
The cast is nothing short of impressive with IU and Lee Joon Ki playing the main leads and Kang Ha Neul playing the second lead (note: prepare to cry). The other princes are brought to life through Hong Jong Hyun, Baekhyun (EXO), Ji soo and Nam Joo Hyuk, who have made their mark in the drama world for being pretty lads with a penchant for comedy.
The drama’s character posters have been revealed and they definitely showcase the imperial regalia that only Joon Ki and IU could command!
