Are you ready for more Hwayugi? Well, we have a few more character trailers out for the upcoming Hong sisters drama Hwayugi (also known as A Korean Odyssey) starring Lee Seung Gi (You’re All Surrounded), Oh Yeon Seo (My Sassy Girl), and Cha Seung Won (Hawjung).
I must say the production quality looks fantastic, and they employ some interesting supernatural effects. We see Lee Seung Gi with eyes glowing and flames coming from his hands as he charges in for battle. Cha Seung Won is also ready to fight as smoke comes from his shoes and his eyes go black. Then Oh Yeon Seo looks ready to jump in too as she hides a talisman under her umbrella.
It was also just announced that Hwayugi has been picked up by Netflix for global distribution. So yay that it will get subbed! Of course, it may mean having to wait a bit longer though. Ah well, that’s how it goes these days. I just know that I need this drama right now! 🙂
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 scheduled to premiere December 23 on tvN.
