Ji Soo’s character, the great General On Dal, is described as a simple and honest man who loves nature. His great love for Princess Pyeonggang, who used his love for her to chase after her ambition, earned him the nickname of “Foolish On Dal” for 1,500 years. In the released stills, Ji Soo charms the viewers with his character transformation and spot-on portrayal of the young and foolish On Dal with his powerful facial expressions and natural acting adlibs.

In addition, the warm vibe and physical features of the actor make him the perfect choice to portray General On Dal. Whatever role he is given, Ji Soo proves that he is an actor of a different caliber who can fully immerse himself in his character.

River Where the Moon Rises will be aired for the first time on Monday, February 15, at 9:30 p.m. KST.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
