Lee Joon Gi has been offered the lead role in the new saguek drama Moon Lovers. Moon Lovers is a remake of the popular Chinese drama Scarlet Heart (Bu Bu Jin Xin). Moon Lovers tells the story of a modern day woman who travels back in time to the Goryeo era and gets romantically involved with several princes. Lee Joon Gi would play the 4th prince, Gwang Jong (born Wang So), whose character is cold and calculating.
Well, I certainly didn’t expect this news! Like many others, I would really love to see Lee Joon Gi take on a modern rom/com sometime soon, but as always, I am thrilled to see him in any drama. And of course he plays sageuks so well. This would also be the first time he is playing royalty. Needless to say, I am super excited!
Moon Lovers will premiere early in 2016.
