Updated December 15 KST:
“Hong Chun Gi” is a historical fantasy romance drama set in the Joseon era, based on the novel of the same name by Jung Eun Gwol, whose novels “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and “The Moon Embracing the Sun” have also famously been adapted into hit dramas.
On December 15, Saram Entertainment confirmed that Gong Myung had been cast in the role of Prince Anpyeong. On the surface, Prince Anpyeong appears to be a free-spirited romantic who goes with the flow and loves poetry, literature, and art, but he hides a deep sense of loneliness.
Kim Yoo Jung is playing the titular role of Hong Chun Gi, the only female painter in the Joseon dynasty, who was born blind but miraculously regains vision. Ahn Hyo Seop co-stars as Ha Ram, a blind astrologer who is able to read the stars despite losing his vision, while Kwak Si Yang is playing the role of Prince Soo Yang, a cruel and ambitious prince determined to be king at all costs.
“Hong Chun Gi” will premiere sometime in 2021.
