Watch: Kim So Hyun And Ji Soo Share Reasons To Watch

The stars of “River Where the Moon Rises” sat down for an exclusive interview with Rakuten Viki!

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

Ji Soo said about the drama, “It’s like a Korean version of ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ there’s a bit of fantasy in it.” While talking about their characters, Kim So Hyun said that she plays the assassin Yeom Ga Jin in the beginning of the drama before she becomes Princess Pyeonggang later on. “She’s cool-headed and tough, but she also has a warm flame in her heart. She’s a great woman,” said Kim So Hyun.

Ji Soo commented, “On Dal is a wild man who lives in the woods, hiding from the world. His life starts to change after he meets Pyeonggang.”

When asked to describe reasons to watch the drama in five characters, Ji Soo said, “So Hyun and Ji Soo,” making Kim So Hyun laugh. She commented, “Cool action scenes. Action scenes in a historical drama are quite different from others. I think you’ll enjoy watching those action scenes.”

The pair also shared lines from the drama that they think people will be able to relate to, and they answered rapid fire questions that show their different preferences and tastes.

Kim So Hyun said to Viki viewers, “We filmed the story of Pyeonggang and On Dal and it’s really interesting, so please show it a lot of love.” Ji Soo added, “Please love Pyeonggang and On Dal a lot, and also share the drama far and wide too and show it love. See you on Viki!”
