The “Book of the House of Gu” cast including the two leads, Lee Seung Gi and Suzy, gathered together for the first script reading session on February 1
“Book of the House of Gu” will air in April after the current drama “Horse Doctor” ends. “Book of the House of Gu” will be directed by the hit maker, Shin Woo Chul PD, who also worked on “A Gentleman’s Dignity,” “Secret Garden,” “Lovers of Prague,” and “Lovers of Paris.” Writer Kang Eun Kyung is also among the staff and is famous for working on “Baker King Kim Tak Gu.”
Cast members including Lee Seung Gi, Suzy, Lee Sung Jae, Lee Yeon Hee, Choi Jin Hyuk, Jung Hye Young, Uhm Hyo Sup, Yoo Yeon Suk, Lee Yoo Bi, and Kim Hee Won attended the script reading.
Lee Seung Gi and Suzy will be taking on the challenge of acting in a sageuk (historical fiction) drama for the first time. Lee Seung Gi will play the role of Choi Kang Chi, who is half beast, half human. Suzy will play the role of Dam Yeo Wool, a martial arts instructor. The two actors reportedly showed great chemistry as they acted out their first scene together.
Lee Yeon Hee will play the role of Yoon Seo Hwa, a lovely maiden of a noble family while Choi Jin Hyuk will play the role of Gu Wol Ryung, who is a guardian angel.
After ending the script reading, Lee Seung Gi commented, “I can’t wait for my journey as Choi Kang Chi,” showing his energy and passion for his next project.
The staff commented, “With a great writer, director and cast, we will try our best to make the best drama,” and “Rather than quickly produced scripts and long shoots, we will try to show the viewers a high-quality drama.”
“Book of the House of Gu” has started shooting in February and will air in April.
