MBC Releases Script Reading Stills for Female Lead Centric Sageuk Rookie Historian Goo Hye Ryung


There a lot of pretty faces in upcoming MBC Wed-Thurs drama Rookie Historian Goo Hye Ryung starting off with the leads Shin Se Kyung and Cha Eun Woo. Add to that Park Ki Woong, Lee Ji Hoon, and Park Ji Hyun then it’s a veritable parade of pretties in the Joseon era. The first drama stills released gave off Moonlight Drawn by Cloud vibes and the synopsis takes it down the same path with Cha Eun Woo playing the crown prince and Shin Se Kyung the girl who wants to change Joseon norms and become the first female historian. Imma bet there is a childhood sequence where the two had a meet cute or something like that, plus she has a birth or family secret tucked away too. I’m not criticizing as much as pointing out that young romance sageuks tend to follow the same format but if it works then the viewers still enjoy said format because it delivers the feels.
