Someone posted this in the DC MBC Drama Gallery, but dclsg fans have doubts since SeungGi hasn’t mentioned anything about Sageuk in his recent interviews. So please take this with a grain of salt. 😛
Lee Seung Gi’s casting for the sageuk “칼과꽃 (Sword and Blossom)” is almost confirmed. A verbal agreement has been made, and it will be finalized soon. The female lead will be a young actress, and there are 3 under consideration right now (Shin Se Kyung and 2 unknowns). The drama will be broadcast on KBS in early 2013 (after “Jeon Woo Chi”), and the filming will start this year, probably at the end of December, after Lee Seung Gi wraps up his singer activities.
The drama is a sageuk romance, with the female lead seeking revenge on an enemy. But it’s not centered on the female lead, it’s two-top (male & female leads being fairly equal). The script has been changed to expand the role of the male lead, with lots of action scenes.
SeungGi was also rumored for “돈의화신 (Money Demons)” earlier, but apparently his age is not a good match with the character.
