An official of Rooftop Prince said, “Hallyu star Park Yoochun’s acting skills were recognized through historical drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal and melodrama Miss Ripley. This character that travels from Joseon Dynasty into the modern times should be backed up by his acting skills. The leading actress Moon Chaewon who had a very enthusiastic year with movie The Bow and drama The Princess’ Man is on the rise. We’re in close discussions with Moon Chaewon’s side.”
