The young Yeon Woo has “passed away” in The Moon that Embraces the Sun, and the curiosity of audience for the future plot development is intensifying.

On episode 8 of The Moon that Embraces the Sun broadcast on January 18th, 2012, Yeon Woo (Kim Yoo Jung) is forced to leave the palace. In the day’s broadcast, Yeon Woo goes back to her family due to illness, but because of words of state shaman Nok Young who said that, “Death is the only way to reduce the pain,” father Heo Young Jae looks at the painful Yeon Woo whose sickness is getting worst and vomits blood, and in the end chooses to let his daughter died.

He receives the drug from state shaman Jang, and personally feeds her the drug, and says, “I’m sorry, cannot do anything for you,” and sheds tears, while the audience feels sympathetic. Yeon Woo said, “I want to get some rest,” expressing that she wants to be in the embraces of her father, and slowly closes her eyes.

In this regard, what form will actress Han Ga In which takes over from Kim Yoo Jung to play the role of adult Yeon Woo will portray is under the spotlight.
