Lee Seung Gi Drama Rumors

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.

    I know it’s only a rumor but I can’t help for being excited. The drama theme really does not matter to me. Seung Gi has built such a fine reputation as an actor that I know at the very least he will play his part very well. Can’t wait for confirmation or any other solid drama news!!!

    i think in a press conference in 2010 he said he was interested in a sageuk .so if he decides it will be great. if this has lots of action scenes the desire he expressed of doing more manly roles will come true.hoping this news turns to be true.anyways appearing in a drama in 2013 is enough to please my heart.2013 will be grand and busy for seunggi becoz of drama and hopefully variety with singer activities at this year end.come 2013 the multientertainer, the emperor of korean showbiz is ready to take over korea and world by storm!

      • iamsqueezingme says:

        Ya.. Missed her a lot too… !
        By the way I do kind need a lot effort on following saeguk drama, but it is sure a challenge for seunggi. Will support him.

        But I’m more imagining seunggi in action drama like cha seung won in athena.. Must be cool

    Check out my new post about Seung Gi… It’s not a diary, it’s a journal. ^_^ Thanks!!! ♥ http://itsadiurnal.wordpress.com/2012/10/07/entry-16-ah-stress/

  11. Poply says:

    Thank you share most exited news. Hope more information. If history or modern , only hope to see him in tv. Omg , if ‘s kbs so i can see him in tv channel world. Really good news. I’m happy with tears.

  12. Akex says:

    That’s really good news, But I also could barely watch sageuk’s mostly because of those drawn out dialogues they got on my nerves but ever since I read Seung gi wanted to act in Sageuk drama, I started watching them to get used to its style (I even read about kings to find out which role would be a good one for Seung gi crazy I know :P). Anyway whatever he decides to do I believe it would be a good role I am so excited hopefully it will be confirmed soon.

  13. Alex says:

    WOW look at that I misspelled my name in my excitement sorry about that and the double post.

  14. Ay says:

    Although it might be a rumour, the news makes so much sense and has so much details in it that I want to believe it is true. In the Vogue interview, SG said that he would appear in a drama in the first half of 2013. And he has said a few times he wants to be in a history drama. So, this could be it! And I have faith in him that whatever genre the drama is, it/he will be good.

  15. Gen Wong says:

    omg omg omg!!! The coming days and months are gonna be exciting!
    THere’s performances and fan signings and fan meets to look forward to…
    an album with hopefully lots of activities in November, perhaps award ceremonies in December…
    and now this!
    No matter is it’s sageuk or contemporary, as long as it’s SEUNGGI!!!
    Yay!!!

  17. maritess says:

    Thanks for sharing this hope it’s true i really want to see him do action scenes cause in MGIG it was a short scene he was so good i hope to see him soon in a new drama 🙂

    Will Seunggi be a swordsman? I remember how suave he was doing swordplay with a rubber hose during the “faceoff” with Su Geun in 1n2d episode 58, only that I almost died laughing when Su Geun suddenly turned the “sword” that he was holding into a walking stick and limped with it!

  19. airen says:

    Whoa..great news indeed. Happy to know he’ll be on TV soon since everyone been missing him dearly.
    I bet he would be great doing saguek drama since always work hard on everything, cant wait to see one more new side of him.
    But, in my opinion (purely my personal thought, anyone can disagree), since he’s going global right now, it would be better if he choose modern drama- for example, being a mean mafia boss, great with guns and swords but later on fall in love with a ballerina dancer (something like that) and lots of actions in between. Sounds cliche but, in order to gain much more attention and recognition from international korean drama fans, that kind of story would mostly attract their interest rather than saguek. On the other side, saguek is really popular among koreans lately, so still a win win situation.
    Anyways, for hardcore fans like us, we will always support no matter what he does. Even though saguek is not my personal cup of tea, i’ll make sure to watch it if he’s on it.

  20. meliejoo says:

    i wish he could act in a vampire.. evil to romantic..

  21. bluedolphin says:

    I hope he could get a gd script like brilliant legacy..

  22. Samasta93 says:

    shin se kyung….? …. hmm…
    If I say… Ha Ji Won as the main actress… am I asking too much? ;P
    I miss them! **ahem**

    Seunggi has mentioned in his latest interviews that he’s preparing for a new drama next year; so for sure he’ll be coming back in the small screen next year. I believe he’ll pick a great project; and as always, he’ll bring his character truly alive.

    If the rumor is indeed true or if Seunggi’s going to act in a sageuk drama, I’m over the moon. Especially if it’s an action-sageuk. I’m a huge fan of sageuk; it’s my favorite drama genre. SSK was great in Tree with Deep Root. But I’ll support Seunggi’s leading lady whoever she’ll be. Seunggi always has a great chemistry with all his leading lady.

    i just finished watching ” The faith ” is sageuk drama of Lee min ho..
    i like Lee min ho.. but i realized sageuk drama wasn’t fun..
    but i only love to see that action scene in it.. ” The faith rating was lower than others drama too..
