Greetings, Cha Eun Woo fan! Yes, you, the person reading this. I know you're probably aware by now that this idol/actor/bae, who starred in My ID Is Gangnam Beauty (2018), is working on a new K-drama and we cannot contain our feels because OMG new Eun Woo content is everything!
Okay, here's what we know about the project so far:
The show will start airing in July 2019.
Through his management, Eun Woo confirmed in March that he was on board to star in the drama. According to him, "The script was very intriguing, and I found the topic of female historians refreshing. Most of all, the character Yi [Lee] Rim made my heart flutter. I would like to portray the growth of Yi [Lee] Rim who was born to have a lonely destiny and is clumsy at everything he does."
It's called Rookie Historian Goo Hae Ryung.
The story is set in the 19th century, a time when men and women were not seen as equals and women who knew how to read and write were ~frowned upon~. The lead character, Goo Hae Ryung, aspires to become a historian inside the palace and tries to "change" society.
Check out this fanmade poster to get you excited:
Eun Woo's new co-star is none other than the adorable Shin Se Kyung!
Shin Se Kyung will play the titular role of Goo Hae Ryung. Her other period dramas include Tree With Deep Roots (2011) and Six Flying Dragons (2015).
Eun Woo plays a prince! OHMYGOODNESS.
Eun Woo will play the role of Prince Lee Rim! He is second in like to the throne (yay for less pressure) and has never been in love. He lives a double life as a lonely prince inside the palace and a popular romance novelist in the city of Hanyang. While juggling both worlds, he meets the intern historian Goo Hae Ryung and falls in love with her!
On May 20, 2019, Astro's official account showed photos and a video of Eun Woo in costume! Aww.
