Light has been shed on the cast of The Moon that Embraces the Sun. We already know that Kim Soo Hyun, Han Ga In and Jung Il Woo have been casted and now, from these script reading photos held last Christmas Day (sigh), we see Kim Min Seo (Baby-Faced Beauty, Sungkyunkwan Scandal), Song Jae Rim (Flower Boy Ramyun Shop), Yoon Seung Ah (Playful Kiss, All My Love), Nam Bora and Song Jae Hee. Song Jae Rim fits a badass warrior in my eyes. He’s already got the mane of glory to boot! Haha!
Kim Min Seo stars as a “stealth femme fatale”, one who looks pure and noble but actually has ambitions and will do anything to achieve those. I’m already having flashbacks from Baby-Faced Beauty. Haha!
Yoon Seung Ah plays a badass warrior (YOU GO GIRL) tasked to protect the shaman, played by Han Ga In.
Song Jae Hee plays Han Ga In’s older brother and Kim Soo Hyun’s martial arts teacher, Song Jae Rim as Kim Soo Hyun’s bodyguard (I TOTALLY CALLED THIS) and Nam Bora as the younger sister to Kim Soo Hyun and Jung Il Woo. The online community has been abuzz with the casting of Song Jae Rim because how was he casted? He didn’t say much in Flower Boy Ramyun Shop and we’ve been giddily guessing that it’s definitely because of the pre-grown mane of glory and well, it’s the era of the flower boys. Haha!
I’m still not sold with the Kim Soo Hyun – Han Ga In pairing and now that I see Yoon Seung Ah, I kinda wish for them to be the OTP. Now, that’s interesting! King falls for the badass warrior protecting the shaman, his first love. Hahaha!
MBC’s The Moon that Embraces the Sun premieres on January 4. Mark your calendars!
