On the other hand, ‘The Moon Rising River’ (playback Han Ji-hoon, director Yun Sang-ho, production Victory Contents) is a work that depicts sad love story of Princess Pyeonggang, who betrayed Ondal to be the ruler of the country, and Ondal, who sacrificed for Princess Pyeonggang. Based on the stories of Goguryeo recorded in the Three Kingdoms, ‘The Moon Rising River’ plans to recreate the epic poems of Pyeonggang and Ondal that everyone knows, but no one knows about, into a historical drama. The schedule has not been confirmed yet, but Kim So-hyun, Ji-soo and Lee Ji-hoon have confirmed their appearance and are filming.
