Moon Geun Young’s TV comeback project

Hmm…seems the trend now is to feature a character where the boy is actually a girl ? I wonder how she can pull it off since she looks way “girl-y” than Yoon Eun Hye…BTW, I think MGY is cute in her short hair – no idea why the Korean public don’t feel the same way.

About the drama plot – err… currently not that interesting to me… unless the writers change it to a plot similarly like “The Butterfly Lovers” aka “Liang San Bo and Chuk Ying Tai” aka “Liang Zhu” (if you don’t know what I am talking about, you can read about it in the wiki here).

Moon Geun-young Returns to TV Screen

Actress Moon Geun-young, 21, will return to the television screen with the epic drama “The Painter of Wind.”

Returning to TV screens after five years, she will play the lead role of Sin Yun-bok, a painter who disguises herself as a man. Sin Yun-bok is a painter who lived during the Joseon Kingdom (1392-1910) and was known for realistic and delicate depictions of daily life.

The painter was known as a male, but a fictional historical novel “The Painter of Wind,” written by Lee Jung-myeong and published in 2007, raised the question of whether Sin might be a woman dressed as a man.

“When I first read the novel, I just thought it was a story about the genius painters Kim Hong-do and Sin Yun-bok. However, I realized that there might be more secrets hidden in the drawings and I couldn’t put the book down,” Moon said in a press release.

The drama will explore the life of this genius artist and mysteries hidden in the paintings. Other characters, such as the teacher and rival of Sin, Kim Hong-do, have not been cast yet. With plans to start shooting in March, “The Painter of Wind” will be aired in the second half of the year on SBS.

Affectionately called as “the nation’s little sister,” Moon started modeling at the age of 12 and appeared in the docudrama “On the Way” (1999) the following year. Her major breakthrough as a star was the horror film “A Tale of Two Sisters” (2003) directed by Kim Jee-woon. Later, she starred in such hit films as “My Little Bride” in 2004 and “Dancing Princess” in 2005.

However, because she started as a child actor, her transition to an adult actor was not very successful. Her last appearance in the movie “Love Me Not” (2006) received mixed reviews.

She is currently a student majoring in Korean Language and Literature at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul.

  1. Why is everyone copying? I didn’t like CP, partly because of Yoon Eun Hye, but seriously, it wasn’t that great of a plot line anyway. And this plot is getting ooold. Please, think of something new and creative! We need another hit drama like Sam Soony! 🙂

  2. FTLove, I totally agree with you!! CP, I’ve never seen, so I won’t judge too badly. I’m a fan of YEH, but CP’s plotline just didn’t appeal to me too much.
