KBS2’s upcoming drama “Thinking of the Moon When the Flower Blooms” (literal title) released a new behind-the-scenes look at the drama’s script reading!
The drama will take place during the period of the strongest prohibition laws in Joseon history, depicting human desire and proving that prohibition is not the best option. The drama captures the risky romance between a principled inspector who cracks down on those making alcohol illegally and a woman who illegally makes alcohol in order to try to change her life around.
The drama will be helmed by PD (producing director) Hwang In Hyuk of “The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop” and “Doctor Prisoner.” In addition to the PD, scriptwriter Kim Joo Hee and actors including Yoo Seung Ho, Girl’s Day’s Hyeri, Byun Woo Seok, Kang Mina, Choi Won Young, Jang Kwang, Im Won Hee, Bae Yoo Ram, Kim Ki Bang, Seo Ye Hwa, Park Ah In, Moon Yoo Kang, Kim Min Ho, Jung Young Joo, and Jung Sung Il were present at the script reading.
Yoo Seung Ho will play the role of Nam Young, Joseon’s greatest inspector who lives a very principled life. Known for being an expert in historical dramas, Yoo Seung Ho used his dignified and powerful manner of speech to portray his character. The actor shared, “I was drawn to the topic of prohibition,” and added that the relationships between the characters are interesting.
Hyeri used her trademark bright energy and great focus to immerse herself into the role of Kang Ro Seo, who begins to make alcohol in order to pay back her debt.
Byun Woo Seok will take on the role of crown prince Lee Pyo, an alcoholic who falls in love, while Kang Mina will portray Joseon dynasty’s greatest beauty Han Ae Jin, who has a great sense of curiosity.
