Ooh, this just got even more interesting! Park Bo Gum (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) has now been offered a starring role in the latest drama coming from the popular writer duo the Hong sisters called Hwayugi.
Hwayugi is a romantic comedy horror loosely based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West about the journey of a monk and four others to atone for their sins. The drama moves the story to the modern day where Park Bo Gum’s character is based off of the trouble making Monkey King who was exiled to the human world without his powers because of his corruption. He seeks to restore them with the help of a materialistic monk (who will be our leading lady) who can unseal them.
An offer is still out to Cha Seung Won (The Greatest Love) to co-star as a successful businessman who is close to Park Bo Gum’s character. It comes from the PD of The Greatest Love.
Well, this is a very interesting story to base a drama off of, and I’m really interested to see how they adapt it for the modern day. We have a bit of a trend right now with these modern fantasy’s that have supernatural characters. And it’s a trend that I love! I really hope we get a good cast in place, and the actors we have considering now would certainly be a lot of fun!
Hwayugi is looking to air in December on tvN.
