The cast of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds ( Love in the Moonlight ) after 6 years: “Prince” Park Bo Gum and “eunuch” Kim Yoo Jung are still rumored to be secretly dating, Jung Jin Young has turned from an Idol to a talented actor.
Love in the Moonlight is a South Korean television series starring Park Bo-gum and Kim Yoo-jung with Jung Jinyoung, Kwak Dong-yeon and Chae Soo-bin. It is a coming-of-age story and youth romance set during 19th-century Joseon Dynasty based on the novel Moonlight Drawn by Clouds which was first serialized on Naver in 2013 and consequently published as a five-part series of books in 2015.
The historical drama Moonlight Drawn By Clouds has ended for a long time, but the news about the film’s cast still has a great attraction to movie-loving audiences. Let’s see with lovekpop95 how the life and career of this drama’s cast has changed after 6 years.
Park Bo Gum
Having a place in the Korean cinema scene since the movie Repply 1988, but it was not until Park Bo Gum’s famous movie Moonlight Drawn by Clouds that really solidified. As far as I know, thanks to the role of the crown prince, Park Bo Gum has risen to become an A-list star that is sought after by many directors.
After the filming of the movie Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, Park Bo Gum took a two-year break from acting and returned in 2018 as Kim Jin Hyuk in tvN’s drama Encounter alongside senior Song Hye Kyo. After that, the actor also appeared in many other hit movies.
Currently, Park Bo Gum is serving in the army because he joined the army on August 31, 2020. I am sure that not only me but also many viewers are looking forward to Park Bo Gum’s return with an explosive Drama.
Kim Yoo Jung
In the movie Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, “National Sister” Kim Yoo Jung plays Hong Ra On who has to disguise herself as a eunuch and eventually falls in love with the crown prince.
There is a special thing, because of the too sweet chemistry of the couple Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung that as soon as the drama ended, there were many rumors that the couple was secretly dating. Although the two have repeatedly denied it, fans are still hoping that this will be a real couple.
At the same time, this is also Kim Yoo Jung’s first major role after appearing in several dramas as a child actress. The role helped her really shine and become the new generation pearl of Korean cinema.
In 2017, she starred in the romantic comedy Because I Love You alongside actor Cha Tae Hyun. In 2018, she starred in the romantic comedy drama series Clean With Passion For Now.
In 2020, she collaborated with actor Ji Chang Wook in the romantic comedy Backstreet Rookie.
Kim Yoo Jung’s latest film is titled Lovers Of The Red Sky, which is also a relatively good historical drama of hers.
Jung Jin Young (B1A4 Jinyoung)
Jung Jinyoung is a name that is too familiar to Kpop fans, because he is a multi-talented member from the group B1A4. But it was not until he participated in the movie “Moonlight Drawn by Clouds” that Jin Young’s name really stood out when he became the “Male of ten thousand people”.
In the drama, Jung Jin Young played the role of a jovial charismatic scholar and childhood friend of crown prince Kim Yoon Sung. He became Lee Yeong’s biggest rival when he got entangled in a love triangle with Hong Ra On.
Thanks to this role, Jin Yong’s acting career expanded and was evaluated as a professional actor instead of a mere idol. Most recently, he is appearing in the movie Police University with his co-stars Cha Tae Hyun and member Krystal Jung. The film is one of the successful Korean romantic Kdrama in 2021.
Jeon Mi Seon
Jeon Mi Seon is one of the veteran Korean actresses. She is known for her roles in famous films such as Memories of Murder (2003), Moon Embraping the Sun (2012), Hide and Seek (2013), etc. Mi Seon appeared in the movie Love in the Moonlight with the role play as Park Suk-ui. Unfortunately, four years after starring in the film, she passed away at the age of 48.
On June 29, 2019, the actress was found dead at a hotel in Jeonju and according to the police, it is likely that she committed suicide due to depression. After Mi Seon’s passing, many viewers expressed their deep condolences and once again warned everyone about depression.
Kwak Dong Yeon
Referring to the main cast of the film, of course, it is impossible to forget the character of the most loyal royal bodyguard and confidant of the crown prince Lee Yeong played by the versatile and charismatic actor Kwak Dong Yeon.
When Moonlight Drawn by Clouds ended, he returned to the small screen with the movie My ID Is Gangnam Beauty alongside ASTRO’s Eunwoo, Im Soo Hyang, and Jo Woo Ri.
He also appeared in famous dramas such as: My Strange Hero, Doctor Detective, Never Twice, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, etc. In particular, in the first half of 2021, he appeared in the hit TV series Vincenzo.
It’s been a long time since the movie Clouds Drawn Moonlight aired, but I’m sure this will be a good memory for many movie buffs including myself. I hope the cast will reunite in a new Drama in the future.
