Lee Seung Gi Offered Starring Role in New Hong Sisters Korean Drama ‘Hwayugi’

Hwayugi Korean Drama - Lee Seung Gi

Well, now you officially have my attention! Lee Seung Gi!!!! Lee Seung Gi (You’re All Surrounded) has been offered a starring role in the latest drama coming from the popular writer duo the Hong sisters called Hwayugi.

Hwayugi is a romantic comedy horror loosely based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West about the journey of a monk and four others to atone for their sins. The drama moves the story to the modern day where Lee Seung Gi would play the character based off of the trouble making Monkey King who was exiled to the human world without his powers because of his corruption. He seeks to restore them with the help of a materialistic monk (who will be our leading lady) who can unseal them.

This was the role that was previously offered to Park Bo Gum, but he ultimately turned it down. An offer is still out to Cha Seung Won (The Greatest Love) to co-star.

Well, I’ve been anxiously awaiting a drama from Lee Seung Gi for ages!. He currently has two months left of his military service before he is discharged. And I had actually been low key fantasizing about him doing this drama when he got out. So count me as surprised to see he has actually been offered the role!

This would also be a reunion for him and the Hong Sisters from My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. Lee Seung Gi and Cha Seung Won also starred together in the drama You’re All Surrounded. So I’m very much hoping he accepts this role so we can see him at the end of the year!

Hwayugi is looking to air in December on tvN.

    Haha, it’s always nice to see that you are getting so enthusiastic about something. Happy for you 😊 I certainly like the premise for this, so I am for sure hoping that this will become available here (but ofcourse as usual I am not going to get my hopes up 😊).

      You should definitely give him a look. He can be so much fun! If you like rom-coms, I would wholeheartedly recommend My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. It’s a little bit older being a 2009 drama, but it’s my all time favorite drama. Lee Seung Gi and Shin Min Ah are just golden in it 🙂
