Kim Yoo Jung Transforms Into Genius Painter For Upcoming Drama “Lovers Of The Red Sky”
Based on the novel by Jung Eun Gwol, the author of the novels behind the hit dramas “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and “The Moon Embracing the Sun,” “Lovers of the Red Sky” is a historical fantasy romance drama set in the Joseon era. Kim Yoo Jung stars as Hong Chun Gi, a female painter who was born blind but miraculously regains vision. Ahn Hyo Seop stars as blind astrologer Ha Ram, who is able to read the stars despite losing his sight.
The stills that were revealed on August 10 give a first glimpse of Kim Yoo Jung as the genius painter Hong Chun Gi. The only female painter of the Baek Yu artistic community, she worked hard growing up in a difficult environment, making money with artwork to support her father’s medical expenses.

The “Lovers of the Red Sky” production team commented, “Since the first filming session, Kim Yoo Jung has made Hong Chun Gi from the script into a living figure.
