Viewers are confused about the title role of the upcoming SBS drama series 'The Red Sky'

AKP STAFF

Viewers are feeling confused about the title role of SBS's 'The Red Sky' after the drama series continues to promote the show with both Kim Yoo Jung and Ahn Hyo Seop

'The Red Sky (Korean title is Hong Chun Gi)' tells the story of two destined lovers and their intertwined fates. Kim Yoo Jung plays the role of a talented artist named Hong Chun Gi, while Ahn Hyo Seop takes on the role of a man who can read the stars, Ha Ram

However, many viewers are confused about the title role as the publicity contents of the upcoming drama series are promoting its cast list in a different order. In general, the cast lists are listed in order of importance of the character from the main or leading characters. 

Although Kim Yoo Jung took the title role of Hong Chun Gi, there are many promotional materials with Ahn Hyo Seop's name coming before hers. Some viewers are even speculating the production team is trying to hide the plot. 

The production team has commented that there aren't any special reasons behind the mixed orders. "We are simply promoting with different orders as Ahn Hyo Seop has waited for the production for over a year after he has been cast."  

Meanwhile, SBS's 'The Red Sky' is coming to the small screen this August 30 at 10 PM KST.

The reason is very simple. The order of the names is decided by the Legal team. The fact that Ahn Hyo Seop comes first means he will be the real first lead before Kim Yoo Jung. And that he will be paid more than her. I believe it's useless to explain why: Ahn is male, Kim is female. The viewers are right to point the inconsistency of the title, and the production team's answer is very dishonest.
