We finally have some confirmations for the upcoming Hong sisters drama Hwayugi! Oh Yeon Seo Seo will play a wealthy realtor who battles spirits and Cha Seung Won (Hawjung) will be a successful CEO of an entertainment agency and the hero’s rival.
I’m really glad we finally have a couple confirmations! But I’m still anxiously awaiting news on whether Lee Seung Gi (You’re All Surrounded) will sign on to star. We are also still waiting on Lee Hong Ki (Modern Farmer). Hopefully, Oh Yeon Seo and Cha Seung Won are just the first of the group to get on board with the others soon to follow!
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 the trouble making Monkey King (Lee Seung Gi) is exiled to the human world without his powers because of his corruption. He seeks to restore them with the help of a wealthy realtor (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.
