First look at Moon in the Day with Kim Young-dae, Pyo Ye-jin
ENA’s new fantasy romance Moon in the Day (previously The Moon that Rises in the Day) has appeared on the horizon, signaling the start of their promo campaign with new stills and the first poster of our fated leads: Kim Young-dae (The Forbidden Marriage) and Pyo Ye-jin (Taxi Driver 2).
Adapted from a popular webtoon by the same title, the story has its roots in tragedy with our Shilla aristocrat Do Ha (Kim Young-dae) dying at the hands of his lover Han Ri-ta (Pyo Ye-jin), who herself came from Daegaya nobility. Heartbroken and angered by her betrayal, Do Ha’s spirit is unable to move on to the afterlife and becomes stuck in the mortal world as time flows on without him.
Fast forward to present day, a good thousand years plus in the future, where we meet the man-child and top star Han Jun-oh (Kim Young-dae). When Jun-oh suffers a serious car accident, the circumstances allow Do Ha’s spirit to take control of Jun-oh’s body, giving him the means to finally seek revenge by targeting Ri-ta’s reincarnation.
Said reincarnation is firefighter Kang Young-hwa (Pyo Ye-jin) who has no memory of her past life as Ri-ta. But by the ironic hand of fate, Young-hwa ends up being the one who saves Jun-oh from the accident and is then
coerced recruited to become Jun-oh’s (who is actually Do Ha) bodyguard.
But one revenge plot isn’t enough of course, and talent agency CEO Ohn Joo-wan (Penthouse 3) – who is also Jun-oh’s older brother – created a dangerous enemy for him and his brother by stealing the company from former CEO Jung Woong-in (The Good Bad Mother).
Directed by PD Pyo Min-soo (The Third Charm, The Producers) with scripts penned by Kim Hye-won, ENA’s Moon in the Day is slated to premiere on October 25, following The Kidnapping Day in the Wednesday-Thursday slot.
