Yoo Seung Ho In Talks For Leading Role In New Historical Romance Drama
Yoo Seung Ho may be making his return with a new drama!
On February 1, Ilgan Sports reported that Yoo Seung Ho would be starring in KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Thinking of the Moon When the Flower Blooms” (literal title).
A source from the actor’s agency Story J Company shared with YTN Star, “Yoo Seung Ho has been offered the role of the protagonist in KBS’s new drama ‘Thinking of the Moon When the Flower Blooms’ and is reviewing it.”
The drama will take place during the period of the strongest prohibition law in Joseon history, depicting human desire and proving that prohibition is not the best option. The main characters are an inspector from the Office of the Inspector-General who has left his hometown to achieve fame in Hanyang and restore his family’s status, a poor aristocratic woman who begins to make alcohol in order to pay back her debt, and a crown prince who continues to secretly climb over the walls of the palace to get a few drinks. The three people have a fateful encounter in front of a secret alcohol storage, consequently gaining a secret that could lead each other to death if revealed.
Yoo Seung Ho was offered the role of the inspector Nam Young, a good-looking man who is popular with the local women but is only interested in reading books. Intelligent, hard-working, and determined to make his name known, he has everything that’s needed for success, but the one thing he lacks is a strong family to back him.
Director Hwang In Hyuk of “Doctor Prisoner” and screenwriter Kim Joo Hee will be working together on the drama. It is set to air in the second half of 2021.
