MOMOLAND’s Yeonwoo may be making her acting debut!

Yeonwoo has received the offer to as Dong Dong Joo’s best friend Mae Hwa Soo. Gifted with alluring abilities such as her manner of speaking, dancing, and singing, she is a skilled gisaeng.
“Mung Bean Chronicle” will be directed by Kim Dong Hwi, who previously directed “Fight My Way” and “The Merchant: Gaekju 2015.” It will be written by Im Ye Jin, who previously wrote KBS drama special “If We Were A Season,” “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds,” “Who Are You: School 2015,” as well as Baek So Yeon, who previously wrote “Kang Duk Soon’s Love History.”
The drama is slated to premiere in September.
