Cha Seung Won (Hwajung) has been offered the leading role in the latest drama coming from the popular writer duo the Hong sisters called Hwayugi. Hwayugi is a fantasy romance loosely based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West. It moves the story to the modern day where Cha Seung Won would play a successful businessman.
This would be a reunion between him and the Hong sisters since he starred in their hit 2011 drama The Greatest Love. The PD of The Greatest Love is on board for this project too. It also sounds like the drama will have some horror elements in the same vain as another one of their dramas, Master’s Sun.
The Hong sisters have written so many dramas that I love including my all time favorite My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. I really hope they can deliver another fun and quirky drama this time around.
Hwayugi is looking to air at the end of the year on tvN.
