IU receives love call to take leading role in “Moon Lovers”

It has been reported that IU has received a love call to take the leading role in the upcoming Korean remake of a popular Chinese historical drama.

Despite the heated controversy surrounding her latest album Chat-Shire, fans are still hoping to see the soloist continue her acting career, especially after her role as Cindy in Producer alongside Kim Soo Hyun.

The story revolves around a girl from the modern age who has been whisked back to the dynastical era during a period of power wars and transition. A love story blooms among her and the various princes she encounters at the palace.

Other top names have been either confirmed or in talks for the show including Lee Jun Ki, EXO’s Baekhyun, Ji Soo, Kim Sung Kyun, and Kang Ha Neul.

Moon Lovers is expected to begin filming in January and hit the waves in September 2016.
