The main cast of "Hwarang: The Beginning" consists of Park Seo Joon, Go Ara, Park Hyung Sik, SHINee's Choi Minho, and BTS's Kim Taehyung.

In a recent interview, BTS' V shared how he prepared for his debut in "Hwarang: The Beginning." He revealed that acting is something that he really enjoys doing. However, given that he is a first timer, he had a hard time at first while filming. His co-stars including Park Seo Joon and Park Hyung Sik helped him along the way.
"I liked to act as a hobby before and I like to watch dramas and movies but it was really hard at the beginning as I had to be professional," V revealed. "But it's not so difficult these days because (Park) Hyung Sik hyung, (Park) Seo Joon hyung and other hyungs called me many times to guide and said 'Let's meet up and try reading the script together' because I'm the youngest and they understand that I'm acting for the first time," he continued.
The first episode of "Hwarang: The Beginning" is airing on KBS this December 19.
