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) is all set to premiere this weekend! I’m more than ready for this drama and absolutely can’t wait to see Lee Seung Gi back on my screen!
They have also released a 4 minute long preview trailer to really get us excited. There’s a whole lot going on in it as we meet the main characters and many of the supporting ones and get an idea of some of the story. As described, there’s a mix of horror, comedy, and drama throughout. It really looks like it’s going to be a wild ride, so be sure to check it out!
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.
