Singer and actress Hye-ri will pair with actor Yoo Seung-ho in KBS' new historical TV series "Moonshine" scheduled to start airing later this month.
The coming-of-age series deals with adventurous stories among youngsters who struggle with their own goals and uncertainties in life, leading to romance and friendship between them.
Hye-ri takes on the role of a woman who is drawn to engage in bootlegging to support her family during the prohibition period when it is illegal to manufacture and sell liquor, while Yoo plays an inspector who cracks down on moonshining.
"It is my first appearance in a period series, making me feel awkward at first, but working with Yoo, who has appeared a number of historical dramas, was a great comfort," Hye-ri said in an interview recently ahead of the series' airing. "He is such a good person. Besides acting, I have learned many things from him."
In response to Hye-ri's compliment, Yoo said, "Despite prolific appearances in historical series in the past, I have to admit that I still have a lot of butterflies in my stomach. But Hye-ri is such a bright person whose energetic vibes rub off on me and other co-actors and crew members."
"Moonshine" will start airing on Dec. 20.
