Man, this drama is really trying to deliver on the cast! We now have Lee Hong Ki (Modern Farmer) being offered a role in the upcoming Hong sisters drama Hwayugi. He would play a popular star who has the ability to seduce all women. But his character will experience growth on his journey with the hero and heroine. I can already picture the hilarious encounters between Lee Hong Ki and Lee Seung Gi!
With Cha Seung Won (The Greatest Love), Lee Seung Gi (You’re All Surrounded), and now Lee Hong Ki all entertaining offers, this is like a big Hong sisters drama reunion! And Oh Yeon Seo (My Sassy Girl) is also still considering starring. What a terrific group!
I’ve been on board with this drama since way back when Cha Seung Won was offered a role as the hero’s rival. Then add one of my favorite actors Lee Seung Gi and along with Oh Yeon Seo and Lee Hong Ki, and well, I’m just plain excited! Now if we could just get this whole group to confirm, we’ll really be set for a good time!
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 woman (Oh Yeon Seo) descended from monks who can unseal them. The two then work to battle evil spirits together.
Hwayugi is looking to air in December on tvN.
