Kim So Hyun (Radio Romance) has accepted an offer to star in the upcoming Korean historical drama Mung Bean Chronicles (or Mung Bean Pancake). Mung Bean Chronicles is about a man who disguises himself as a woman to live among a community of women so that he won’t have to get married and a hot-tempered woman who doesn’t want to be gisaeng.
Kim So Hyun will play our reluctant potential gisaeng whose life is turned upside down by this mysterious man. I’m always up for a Kim So Hyun drama! And just keep bringing on those historicals! This year sure is doing its best to make up for last year’s historical drought.
This drama sounds like a lot of fun especially with the reverse of the typical cross-dressing role with a man pretending to be a woman this time around. An offer is out to Jang Dong Yoon (Just Dance) to star as our cross-dressing man, which would be quite a fun role for him. The drama comes from the writer of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds and the PD of Fight for My Way.
Mung Bean Chronicles is planning to air later in 2019 on KBS.
