'Lovers of the Red Sky' Unveils New Character Posters Featuring Kim Yoo Jung, Ahn Hyo Seop, Gong Myung, and Kwak Si Yang
On the 23rd day of August, SBS TV's new historical drama series "Lovers of the Red Sky" released new character posters of lead actors Kim Yoo Jung, Ahn Hyo Seop, Gong Myung, and Kwak Si Yang. The newly released posters shared a glimpse of the characters' interesting personalities, interests, and stories.
First, "Love in the Moonlight" actress Kim Yoo Jung takes on the role of the only gifted female painter in the Joseon dynasty, Hong Chun Gi. In the poster, the actress exudes her immense passion for painting with the bold painting colors and her sweet smile.
The text written in the poster translates to "I want to draw you even if your eyes are filled with sadness, even if I lose my vision, I will draw."
Kim Yoo Jung, who will return in a historical drama for a long time, and her undying passion are a few of the things that are anticipated in the drama.

"Still 17" actor Ahn Hyo Seop stands strongly in the center as the blind astrologer Ha Ram, who has a heart for the stars and sky.
The darkness that surrounds him and his contrasting red eyes heighten the anticipation and mystery of the new historical drama series. In the poster, a written phrase literally translates to, "You can feel it even if you can't see it, like the rest of the stars in the night sky."
His mysterious aura and interesting red eyes amplify the curiosity of the potential viewers in the upcoming drama.
On the other hand, "Be Melodramatic" star Gong Myung perfectly depicts the romantic and poetic beauty of Yang Myung. He will star as a prince who loves poetry, calligraphy, painting, and anything that is relevant to romance.
But despite his free-spirited and extroverted personality, the true Yang Myung is lonely and alone who desires to be wanted and needed.
Over the course of the show, he falls deeply in love with Hong Chun Gi. In the newly published poster, the phrase "I want to protect you" showcases his sincerity and love that makes the viewers look forward to his romantic affairs with the female painter.

Finally, "Oh My Ghost" actor Kwak Si Yang will take on the role of the ambitious and haughty prince Soo Hyang. His head is filled with greed, success, power, and money.
He dreams of becoming a powerful king one day and he will do anything to get what he desires, even if it means resulting in cruelty and violence.
As he holds out a sword, the words "I will take it away even if it were a thousand orders, it was mine and only mine from the beginning" highlight his greed and power-hungry persona. But in spite of it all, his character surely adds tension and color to the drama series.
The cast line up piqued the interest of the viewers since the day of its initial announcement. The quartet are expected to give the viewers a remarkable acting performance for "Lovers of the Red Sky".
