Moonlight Drawn by Clouds
In an attempt to give men great love advice, Hong Ra On disguises herself as a man -- but things take a weird turn when she unknowingly gives advice to the Crown Prince and begins to fall for him.
Moonlight Drawn by CloudsStarring Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung
Park Bo Gum (Tomorrow’s Cantabile, Answer Me 1988) and Kim Yoo Jung (Golden Rainbow, Secret Door) star in a gender bender historical drama about mistaken identity bringing about unmistakable love. Hong Ra On (Kim Yoo Jung) has one of the most unique jobs in the Joseon Dynasty: she disguises herself as a man named Sam Nom and gives great dating advice to lovelorn souls seeking to woo that special someone. Because of one of the letters she writes to help win someone over, she ends up meeting Lee Young (Park Bo Gum). But little does she know that Lee Young is actually the future Crown Prince Hyomyung. Lee Young, for his part, also doesn’t know that Hong Ra On is a woman. With both their interests in each other intensifying, things start to get more than a little weird. And those weird things get even weirder when Ra On is sold into the Royal Palace as a eunuch and becomes involved in a political power struggle. Is this a dilemma a dating guru and handsome royalty can solve, or will the darkness of the clouds of greed and deception enshroud the love in the moonlight?
Adding to the drama are Kim Yoon Sung (B1A4 member and Jeju Island Gatsby alum Jin Young), a young scholar who is being groomed for leadership by his power-hungry father and who is therefore in direct competition with his childhood friend for the throne, and Kim Byung Yeon (Master: God of Noodles actor Kwak Dong Yeon), the future crown prince’s fiercely loyal and most trusted guard.
