Here's another exciting pairing K-Drama fans could be shipping next: Kim Yoo-jung and Ahn Hyo-seop! The two are in talks for a new historical fantasy drama tentatively titled Hong Chun Gi.

Following this news, Kim Yoo-jung's new agency, Awesome ENT, confirmed that she indeed received an offer and is currently reviewing it. 

Hong Chun Gi, which is set in the Joseon era, appears to be very promising, considering that it's going to be based on a novel of the same name written by Jung Eun Gwol, who's also known for his works in other well-known period dramas Sungkyunkwan Scandal and The Moon Embracing the Sun (where Kim Yoo-jung actually appeared in as the young version of lead star Han Ga-in). Not only that, the director who will be at the helm of this upcoming series is Jang Tae-yoo who also directed My Love from the Star and Hyena

This isn't the first time Kim Yoo-jung will be starring in a historical drama. She previously starred in Love in the Moonlight and Secret Door, and was also cast as the young version of several actresses like Han Hyo-joo in Dong Yi and Iljimae and Park Ye-jin in Queen Seondeok. In this upcoming drama, Kim Yoo-jung's role, Soompi reports, is "Joseon's only female painter with shining beauty and bright energy. She also possesses an extraordinary memory."

Ahn Hyo-seop, meanwhile, became popular for the K-Drama Abyss and Dr. Romantic 2 which earned him a Best New Actor (TV) award at the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards.
