On May 9, a source from OSEN reported that Moon Chae Won had been cast in the drama “Gyeryong Goddess” (working title).
The drama is in talks to air on tvN and will be pre-produced. Based on a webtoon, it tells the story of a 699-year-old fairy who has lived through the Goryeo and Joseon dynasties and is working as a barista in the modern age when she meets with two potential reincarnations of her former husband.
Previously Kang Sora had been cast as the female lead, but had to leave due to scheduling conflicts. Actress Moon Chae Won has been confirmed to replace her in the project, which also stars Yoon Hyun Min in the role of biology professor Jung Yi Hyun.
The project is produced by JS Pictures, directed by Kim Yoon Chul (“My Name Is Kim Sam Soon,” “Woman of Dignity”), and written by Yoo Kyung Sun. This will be Moon Chae Won’s first small-screen project after the end of “Criminal Minds.”
