Princess Pyeonggang (Kim So-hyun) was born as a princess but raised as an assassin. Despite knowing the truth of her origins, she fights to win back her country and the rightful throne from the corruption that has taken over.
A peace-loving man, On Dal (Na In-woo), is the exact opposite of the warrior princess. But as the two fall for each other, On Dal finds himself forsaking his principles to keep her safe. An endeavor that proves increasingly difficult, as players from all sides converge in a lethal battle for the throne.

Following that, Ji Soo was removed from River Where the Moon Rises and the shooting stopped. Ji Soo was replaced by 'Mr. Queen' star Na In Woo. And finally, River Where the Moon Rises has dropped its finale on April 20, 2021, in 190 countries worldwide. No wonder fans are curious about River Where the Moon Rises Season 2.
