Yeonwoo of girl group MOMOLAND might make her TV acting debut this year as she is in talks to appear in the upcoming drama Mung Bean Chronicles.
Headlined by Kim So-hyun (Love Alarm) and Jang Dong-yoon (Mr. Sunshine), the said series (also known as Joseon Loco: Nokdu Chronicles) is a period romantic comedy that centers on Jeon Neok-du (to be played by Jang), an ambitious and hard-working man who refuses to get married. During an incident in which he disguises himself as a woman and enters an all-female village, he meets a young lady named Dong Dong-joo (Kim), a hot-tempered trainee gisaeng who is lacking in terms of musical talent but excels in making “anything using the right tools.” The drama is based on a popular webtoon of the same name.
Meanwhile, Yeonwoo has been offered the role of Mae Hwa-soo, Dong Dong-joo’s bestfriend and a skilled gisaeng who is gifted with excellent abilities in speaking, dancing, and singing. If she accepts the role, she will be the first MOMOLAND member to appear in a prime time Korean drama with a major supporting role.
Slated to premiere in September on KBS2, Mung Bean Chronicles will be directed by Kim Dong-hwi of Fight For My Way and The Merchant: Gaekju 2015. It is written by Baek So-yeon and Lim Ye-jin (Love in the Moonlight).
