Yeo Jin-goo Wants to Reunite with His Co-star on ‘The Moon Embracing The Sun’ Kim Yoo-jung! What Exactly is Their Relationship Now?

Who hasn’t heard of the Korean drama titled The Moon Embracing the Sun? This drama is so legendary because it is considered to be the initial point that has brought so many people into the K-Drama land.

Among the cast, Yeo Jin-goo and Kim Yoo-jung are especially memorable since those two have grown up so much and have additionally taken over more varied roles in Korean dramas. In other words, after The Moon Embracing the Sun, those two have made names for themselves.

It is a well-known fact that the two of them are good friends, and their friendship hadn’t begun at the filming of The Moon Embracing the Sun. Way before The Moon Embracing the Sun was released, they already played in a drama together called Iljimae.

In an interview in 2017, Yeo Jin-goo talked about how he wanted to work with Kim Yoo-jung again. He said that he was looking forward to working together with her because he already knows her so well, so the process of the shooting will become comfortable which will result in good chemistry between them on-screen.

However, even though Yeo Jin-goo and Kim Yoo-jung are so close to the point that Yeo Jin-goo sent a food truck to Kim Yoo-jung’s drama shooting of Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, he claimed that they were just really good friends.

For those of you who are curious about Yoo Jin-goo’s and Kim Yoo-jung’s dramas and want to catch up and watch them, here are the lists.
