With just two days left until the drama’s premiere, the director and writer of KBS 2TV’s “River Where the Moon Rises” have shared their thoughts on what viewers can look forward to!

A reinterpretation of a classic Goguryeo folk tale, “River Where the Moon Rises” will tell the famous love story of Princess Pyeonggang (played by Kim So Hyun) and On Dal (played by Ji Soo).

When asked what viewers should keep an eye on as they watch the drama, director Yoon Sang Ho replied,  “‘River Where the Moon Rises’ is a feast of characters with unique, distinctive traits. I think viewers will be able to enjoy exploring the various characters’ different charms while watching the drama.”

In this retelling of the famous story, Pyeonggang is born the princess of Goguryeo, but she winds up living her life as Yeom Ga Jin, a warrior of an entirely different social status.

“In contrast to the familiar, well-known tale of the crybaby Princess Pyeonggang and the fool On Dal, our drama’s main character Pyeonggang is a warrior,” said the director. “The key point of our drama is the way that one word, ‘warrior,’ completely changes the vibe of the story. Another thing to keep an eye on is the exciting action scenes that will play up that key point.”

Yoon Sang Ho went on to add,  “The most important point to keep an eye on is the beautiful love that develops between Pyeonggang, who has a powerful charisma, and On Dal, who is gentle and pure-hearted in contrast.”

Meanwhile, writer Han Ji Hoon confidently declared, “From the cinematography to the editing, music, art, and more, the drama lacks nothing. It will give viewers the chance to taste a feast for all five senses.”

“In particular,” he continued, “I hope that you will look forward to the beauty of the cinematography and the sensuous and dynamic imagery created by director Yoon Sang Ho, a historical-drama veteran.”

Finally, the writer shared, “When discussing what to keep an eye on in the drama, it’s impossible not to mention the charms of the actors, who have been showing top-class acting performances regardless of their generation. ‘River Where the Moon Rises’ has an abundance of all these fun-to-watch elements.”

“River Where the Moon Rises” premieres on “River Where the Moon Rises” premieres on February 15 at 9:30 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
