Watch: Kim So Hyun Struggles To Balance Love And Duty In Upcoming Historical Drama Teaser
A reinterpretation of a classic Goguryeo folk tale, “River Where the Moon Rises” will tell the love story of Princess Pyeonggang (played by Kim So Hyun) and On Dal (played by Ji Soo). In this retelling of the famous story, Pyeonggang – who is also the fierce warrior Yeom Ga Jin – is an ambitious woman who dreams of becoming the first female to lead Goguryeo.
The teaser opens up with Princess Pyeonggang gazing up at the night sky and saying, “The moon is very bright.” She exudes an imperial aura with her majestic robes and ornate jewelry.
However, the clip also shows her as a commoner. Despite her ragged clothing, she looks happy, especially since she is with her lover On Dal. On Dal points out she knows nothing about herself but her name Yeom Ga Jin, which hints Princess Pyeonggang and Yeom Ga Jin are the same person but with different social statuses and personalities.
Yeom Ga Jin suffers an identity crisis, and after realizing who she really is, she claims, “I am Princess Pyeonggang, the oldest daughter of the king of this country.” The video gives a glimpse of the changes she experiences, and drama fans can look forward to her growth and maturity as she turns into a warrior princess.

“River Where the Moon Rises” will premiere on February 15 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
