MBC has released a statement saying that Gu Family Book, the new drama from PD Shin Woo Chul (A Gentleman’s Dignity, Secret Garden) and writer Kang Eun Kyung (Baker King, Man of Glory, Dalja’s Spring), will follow The Horse Healer in late March or April. No actual date was given, it’s probably because MBC hasn’t decided on whether they’ll be giving Horse an extension.
The fantasy action sageuk stars Lee Seung Gi as a half human/half gumiho. Not many storyline details have been released but the rumored storyline is that Seung Gi’s human father and gumiho mother forget to mention what he actually is so he goes through life thinking he’s, you know, normal. His supernatural talents are brought to his attention when he catches some robbers. This leads to him reluctantly fighting for justice and ultimately leads to a battle with his estranged father.
Of course, that’s just the rumored story. But it sounds fucking awesome!
Articles are still saying that Suzy will play the heroine role, but, while I’m 98% she will be in this series, JYP stated that she had not officially confirmed her casting. I prefer to ignore that, though.
