“Mung Bean Chronicles” Webtoon / A&T story Entertainment / DAZED

When: September 2019

Cast: Kim SoHyun, Jang DongYoon, Song GeonHee

Summary: It tells the romance between a man who is disguising as a woman to infiltrate a community for widows and a girl that hates the idea of becoming a gisaeng.

Why wait for it?: Except for the reason that Kim SoHyun in a historical drama is a must-see, the fact that this is a man disguising as a woman is a reason for watching by it-self. In K-Dramas, it has been quite a common theme (in historical drama or not) to have the main actress disguised as a man. However, this time the lead male is disguising as a woman and is supposed to be prettier than the lead female character (according to the webtoon). The last reason to watch would be the popularity of the webtoon on which the drama is based, the story promises to be refreshing.
