Princess Pyeonggang's unstoppable desire and On Dal's only dream
Princess Pyeonggang is one ambitious woman; she desires to be the first female leader of Goguryeo. She will stop at nothing and will it takes to achieve her dream. Aiming to be Goguryeo's leader is not as simple as it may seem. The princess is aware of the hardship and struggles along her way, but she's determined to make her dream come true.
While pursuing her plans, things take an unexpected turn when she meets the peace-loving man On Dal (starred by Ji Soo). He is quite the opposite of the ambitious princess.

Kim So Hyun once again showcases her acting skills by portraying different characters
Starring as Princess Pyeonggang, Kim So Hyun will transition from a princess into an unstoppable warrior. This is the very first time that Kim So Hyun will be portraying different characters in one project. It was previously revealed that the actress would play the dual roles of Queen Yeon and her daughter Princess Pyeonggang. While Princess Pyeonggang is also a soldier named Yeom Ga Jin. The difference between the three characters should be noticed and highlighted.
To be able to carry out the different personalities of Pyeonggang as a princess and as a warrior, the actress made understandable differences in her tone of speech and the way she expresses her emotions. When doing her swordfight, Kim So Hyun made sure to make her action scenes as perfect as they can be. She puts in so much effort by watching action videos countless times and learning from stunt actors.
The drama's production team expressed their thoughts on Kim So Hyun's character as Pyeonggang. They stated that the Pyeonggang of the drama is not the same as the weakling Princess in the tale. She will surely be a strong and bold princess who will transform into a naive young adult when it comes to love. The character of Princess Pyeonggang was achieved thanks to Kim So Hyun's acting.
"River Where the Moon Rises" is set to premiere on Feb. 15 at 9:30 p.m. KST. Be sure not to miss it!
