Watch: Ji Soo And Kim So Hyun Prepare For A Fierce Battle In Upcoming Historical Drama
“River Where the Moon Rises” retells the love story between Pyeonggang and On Dal, who are characters in a classic Goguryeo folktale. Pyeonggang (Kim So Hyun), also known as Yeom Ga Jin, is an ambitious woman who dreams of becoming the first female to lead Goguryeo, and she uses On Dal’s (Ji Soo’s) feelings for her to achieve her goals.
The special teaser begins with Pyeonggang traveling afar on her horse. Following a brief meeting between Pyeonggang and On Dal, On Dal’s father General On Hyup (Kang Ha Neul) appears and states, “There is one person one must protect with their lives on the line. That is the only reason a man wields a sword.” Following those lines, On Dal appears on the battlefield with a sword, and he’s also shown running while carrying Pyeonggang, ready to wield a sword for the person he loves.
On Dal asks, “Do you still want to be the King?” and the question is followed by Go Won Pyo (Lee Hae Young) stating, “Goguryeo is already mine.” Go Won Pyo’s son Go Geon (Lee Ji Hoon) states, “You have to trust me if you want to see the Princess again,” raising questions about the relationship between the Go family and Goguryeo’s royal family.
Pyeonggang appears as tensions escalate, and unlike On Dal’s worried expression, she exudes powerful charisma on the battlefield as she states, “You have to fight when you can’t avoid it.”
In the final scenes, Go Geon prepares for battle, Hae Mo Yong (Choi Yoo Hwa) gives a mysterious gaze, On Dal lies fallen on the battlefield, and Pyeonggang runs off with the moonlight shining behind her, conveying the whirlwind of events that is to come in the upcoming drama.
