Flower Boy Ramyun Shop definitely puts Jung Il Woo’s name in the limelight.
Although he still busy in the finishing stage shooting for that popular tvN drama, he has already received another offer to play in upcoming MBC drama, The Moon Embraces The Sun.
The Moon Embraces The Sun is a fantasy drama, tells story of hot tempered Prince Lee Hwon who falls in love with shaman named Wol. This drama has already picked Kim Soo Hyun (Dream High) to play Prince Lee Hwon and Han Ga In (Bad Man) to play Wol.
So, Jung Il Woo will play second lead male, Prince Yang Myung, the half brother of Prince Hwon and also the second in line to the throne. This role previously offered to Joo Won (Baker King, Ojakgyo Brothers) but perhaps because of Ojakgyo Brothers‘ extension, Joo Won could not join this drama.
It’s quite a setback that after the success of Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, Jung Il Woo picks a second lead role, moreover beside another young hot actor Kim Soo Hyun, because we think with the success of FBRS, Jung Il Woo should maintain his popularity with another leading roles.
But, in other hand, it’s an advantage for MBC as they successfully brings 2 hot actors for their primetime drama which will replace Me Too, Flower which didn’t do well in rating.
And of course it’s also big entertainment for us, Korean drama lover. Imagine Kim Soo Hyun and Jung Il Woo in the same drama ? Fantastic !!
