“River Were the Moon Rises” is a historical drama about the fate of Gongju Pyeonggang (Kim So-Hyun), whose life was all about Goguryeo, and General Ondal (Jisoo), whose love was made history.
In particular, the first broadcast drew attention from the first meeting between the young Pyeong-gang (Heo Jung-eun) and On-dal (Seo Dong-Hyun) and the past of On-dal, who broke up with his father, General On-hyssop (Kang Ha-neul), who lost his mother Queen Yeon (Kim So-Hyun) due to the same incident. Also, the image of Ondal, who risked his life to protect Pyeonggang from childhood, drew attention as it seemed to foretell Pyeonggang and Ondal’s narrative in the future.
