The Moon Embracing The Sun is a famous Korean drama that aired late in 2012. The drama was a historical-fantasy about of a secret, poignant love story between a fictional king of the Joseon Dynasty and a female shaman, set against the backdrop of a traditional Korean palace, amid the conflicts and conspiracies of vying political powers. In this drama, Kim So-hyun, Han Ga-in, Jung Il-woo, and Kim Min-seo played as the lead characters.
Kim Yoo-jung had the role of the young Heo Yeon-woo, at 13 years old. She is the daughter of a noble family who is gaining power in the royal court. Smart, bright, and well-loved, she was chosen as the Crown Princess, but mysteriously fell ill and died before the royal wedding ceremony. Just when she was believed to be dead, she was saved by Jang Nok-young, the head shaman, upon the request from her late friend Ari. Destined to be the first Moon, she was born in the interim of Ari’s execution. However, Yeon-woo lost all her memories and, eight years later, she returns to the palace as a shaman, who is named Wol by Lee Hwon, which means the Moon.
In this drama, Kim Yoo-jung once again showed her talented acting with her partner, Yoo Jin-goo, who was cast as the young Crown Prince/King Lee Hwon. Their chemistry was good, which increased viewers’ interest in watching this drama. Cute, natural, naive, and mysterious, Kim Yoo-jung acted as if she was as one with her character, which suited her personality and made her acting seem very natural.
