KangChi fighting!” There was a change of schedule & they filmed a scene in the forest. Fans also saw SeoHwa & JGW filming at 100 Years Inn. They told JGW to stop harassing KangChi, JGW smiled and said ok. 😆

There’s finally some news on the drama OST:

Joe Lynn Turner, ex-vocalist of Deep Purple, and Korean guitarist Kim Se Hwang recorded a rock ballad song ‘Forever’ on March 21. The song will be included in the OST for Gu Family Secret. It’ll be refreshing to hear an English song with American rock vocal in a sageuk. Turner took on the English lyrics which includes, “Why can’t our hearts beat together? I long for you more earnestly than ever before.” [This is translated back from Korean, so the original lyrics might be something totally different. :P] The music was composed by Turner, Kim Se Hwang, and drama musician Kim Dong Hyuk.

Baby KangChi #2 (photos)

So this is the 2nd baby playing baby KangChi, and he has filmed the last 3 times. His mom saw SeungGi in Hwaseong, but couldn’t take pictures. Anyway, one of the scenes he filmed was getting hit in the face by a candlestick. Poor KangChi!!! 😦

source: daum
English translation: tryp96.wordpress.com


Baby KangChi has filmed 4 times so far. The 1st time was at Andeok Valley. The 2nd time was at Choe Champandaek in Hadong. The 3rd time was at a filming set in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi-do on March 21 (see photos). SeungGi was also in Hwaseong on that day, but he was in his van when baby KangChi was filming, so the baby’s parent didn’t take any pictures of him. The 4th filming also took place in Hwaseong. There were a lot of scenes, so they actually had 4 babies taking turns filming.

According to a news article, Lee Sung Jae’s car got hit by someone drunk driving without license in Jejudo early March. He sustained shoulder injury but continues filming GFB.

March 6, 2013

According to the press, Horse Doctor has been extended by 1 episode, and will end on March 26. So Gu Family Book should premiere on April 1.


A production staff tweeted this today. Does this mean we have to wait even longer to see our Kang Chi? 😦

There are just so many variables on the set and a lot of things don’t go as planned… People who are waiting for that person’s filming… Hmm… Yes… You understand, right? What I’m talking about… ㅎㅎ

English translation: tryp96.wordpress.com


March 3, 2013

A dclsg fan heard that GFB was filming at Andeok Valley (Jejudo) today. Another fan went to a filming location, but did not see SeungGi. Someone told her not to expect SeungGi in Jejudo until it was warmer. There was a notice posted that GFB would be filming there from January 25 to June 30. (photos)


Was the SeungGi sighting on March 1 a false alarm? Because a production staff’s tweets suggest that today, March 3, is the real start date for SeungGi’s filming.

I guess that’s why we were getting fanpics of KangChi’s dad but not KangChi. 😛


March 2, 2013

A dclsg fan read somewhere that GFB was filming at Gamsan Valley in Seogwipo, Jejudo.

Could someone please share some spoiler pictures of KangChi soon? 😛


March 1, 2013

A dclsg fan read on twitter that both SeungGi and Suzy were spotted filming in Jejudo today. So I guess SeungGi flew to Jejudo right after the fan signing for his first GFB filming!

SeungGi ya, fighting! KangChi ya, fighting!


February 28, 2013

Kim Bo Mi, who plays Kang Chi’s mother’s maid, just tweeted that she had finished filming in Jejudo. I think her role is pretty small, so there might be more filming there.


According to a dclsg fan, the camera Gu Family Book uses is Sony CineAlta F65.


According to the press release, Lee Yoo Bi has been cast as SeungGi’s first love. Her character, Park Chung Jo, is the only daughter of Park Moo Sol (played by Uhm Hyo Sup) who appears as Choi Kang Chi’s savior. She’s the best UmChinDal (female equivalent of UmChinAh) of the Joseon Dynasty who has beauty, wealth, and even knowledge. She shows a selfish side that even though she knows the fact that Kang Chi, who had come to her family as an abandoned child, likes her, she takes advantage of Kang Chi whenever the need arises. Later, she gets into an intense love triangle with Dam Yeol Woo surrounding Kang Chi.

According to the press release, Kim Ki Bang has been cast as SeungGi’s right-hand man. In the drama, he plays Eok Man, a servant at Hundred Years Hotel, the largest commercial hotel in the Jeolla-do region. He’s a character that struggles along with Choi Kang Chi.

English translation: tryp96.wordpress.com


February 26, 2013

According to dclsg fans, the production team is also looking for 12 extras to play gisaengs for 3 to 5 months, starting on March 5. Their selection criteria is over 165cm tall, and size 55 (or US size 4).

Someone (who read the script?) said Kang Chi’s parents’ story was set in the winter, and Kang Chi’s story was set in the spring, so the timing seems to be good. Again, SeungGi is rumored to start filming this weekend. Suzy is rumored to start in early March, possibly on March 5. And someone said SeungGi will have STRAIGHT hair in the drama.


There is a rumor that SeungGi will start filming this weekend. But a dclsg fan found a wanted ad for an extra on GFB, and they are looking for a newborn baby less than 30 days old for a filming in Jejudo on March 3. That will most likely be baby Kang Chi. 😛


February 25, 2013

A dclsg fan found a tweet of actor Kim Ki Bang at GFB filming, but it’s not clear what role he’s playing. The interesting thing is he has appeared in 2 of SeungGi’s MVs (1st remake album (part 1, 2, 3) & 3rd album (part 1, 2, 3)).


According to the newest press release, Kim Hee Won will play Sojung Monk in his first sageuk challenge. In the drama, Sojung Monk is Gu Wol Ryung’s long-time friend. He’s the one who helps Wol Ryung find ‘The Gu Family’s Book’ to become human and marry Seo Hwa, and who later on lets half-man-half-beast Kang Chi know about the secret of his birth.

More info on Jo Sung Ha’s character from press release:

Dam Pyeong Joon was once a military officer, but he left everything behind and is now living in a remote village, running a martial arts center that trains the younger generation.

According to another article, the drama has been filming in sub-tropical forests and other locations in Jejudo. And it supposedly captures the ‘fantasy atmosphere’ very well.

Finally, more casting news!

Jo Sung Ha has been cast as Dam Pyeong Joon, Dam Yeo Wool’s father.

The article doesn’t say much, but per rumors, I think he’s Choi Kang Chi’s teacher.

According to another article, Jo Sung Ha has already finished his first filming on Feb. 13.


February 6, 2013

According to a dclsg fan, SeungGi doesn’t really have any filming in February because they’re just filming the first 2 episodes.

A drama production staff tweeted these yesterday:

Looking at the script reading articles today… During the script rehearsal last Friday, our leading actor was bright-eyed… Acting was really good too… I can see why he has so many fans…

Bragging… (I’ll brag about our drama however I want) Our script is really so pretty… ㅎㅎㅎ The color, the quality of the material, and the cover… And what’s more, the content inside the script is also interesting~~ ㅋㅋ

Plot update of The Gu family’s book:

Cho Gwan Woong (Lee Sung Jae) who was born the lowest of class and was looked down upon by the people, managed to turn his desperate life around after getting first place in the military scholar exams. Blinded by his ambitions and greed for power, he caused the death of Minister Yoon and brought downfall to the Yoon family when he falsely accused them of treason. Yoon Seo Hwa (Lee Yeon Hee) who was sold as a gisaeng to Chun Hwa Gwan, escapes with the help of Chun Soo Ryun (Jung Hye Young) and her maid (Kim Bo Mi) when she learns that her enemy, Gwan Woong has his eyes on her.
Seo Hwa & the guardian god of Jiri mountains, Gu Wal Ryung (Choi Jin Hyuk) met and fell in love when she ran to hide out in the mountains but Gwan Woong soon catches wind of her whereabouts and comes hunting for her once again. Feeling unable to raise her son while escaping along with the fact that Wal Ryung has disappeared as well, she sent him down the river in basket hoping that someone could take him in. Meanwhile, Wal Ryung who has lost all his memories began to serve under his enemies as their underling. The only thing that will make the normally amnesiac expressionless Wal Ryung goes in frenzy is whenever he gets to hear Seo Hwa’s name.
Choi Kang Chi who grew up with the Park family after he was picked up from river by Park Moo Sol (Uhm HoSub), the father of Park Kyung Jo (Lee Yoo Bi) and Park Tae Soo (Yoon Yeon Seok). Although Park Tae Soo used to treat him like a brother when they were younger, he started to feel a strong hatred towards Kang Chi when he misunderstood that Kang Chi is the main cause of the downfall of his family while Park Kyung Jo who always looked on him began to make use of Kang Chi to pave her way back to the noble status that her family once held after she was sold as a gisaeng to Chun Hwa Gwan and fate leads Kang Chi to meet up with Chun Soo Ryun, the head Gisaeng twenty years later after she encountered his mother.
Dam Yeo Wool (Bae Suzy), the daughter of Kang Chi and Tae Soo’s teacher is one of the instructors of the martial arts school and despite her young age, Yeo Wool is highly skilled in archery. Although the cross-dressing Yeo Wool is always clashing with Kang Chi because of their different personalities, they find themselves falling for each other as they got to know each other better. Kang Chi soon discovers that he is actually a half-man and half-beast when his special abilities began to show after he goes after some criminals and to become a full human, he needs to find the Gu family’s book to find the way to become one. When Kang Chi sets off on journey to seek his humanity, he ended up confronting his greatest enemy of his life, his father who never aged nor knew about his existence.

Lee Yeon Hee to Make Special Appearance in the Upcoming Drama by enewsworld


There’s so much casting news today that I was just going to wait for translated articles. But the newest addition to the cast made me more excited, so I’ll just post a brief summary.

News #1: Lee Yeon Hee is confirmed for the role of Yoon Seo Hwa, Choi Kang Chi’s mother.

News #2: Jo Jae Yoon will play a wild fellow who initially bullies Choi Kang Chi but later on helps him in his struggles.

News #3! Lee Sung Jae will play the absolute villain in the drama – Jo Gwan Woong, a man of ambition who was born poor but tramples on a lot of people in order to get ahead in life after he passes the military service exam. He’s the main culprit who kills Seo Hwa’s father for treason and makes Seo Hwa become a courtesan.

A Sneak Peek of ‘Gu Family Book’ Story


January 20, 2013

According to dangerous870113, the drama’s first filming has been postponed to mid-February.

I guess the good thing is that SeungGi will get to enjoy the lunar new year. 😛


January 15, 2013

SeungGi talked about the drama at the NuSkin event today. His character is a man with beast’s blood. And the drama is like a martial arts fantasy manhwa, and will probably start broadcasting around April to May.

A sneak peek of the script/storyboard

Actress Jung Hye Young in discussion to join upcoming drama ‘Book of the House of Gu’ by allkpop

There was another article from enews24 yesterday about Kim Bo Mi, along with Lee Yeon Hee, joining the cast for the first 2 episodes. I was really hoping enewsworld would translate it like they did SeungGi’s birthday poster article, since it had other drama details (the most important one: SeungGi will not appear in the 1st episode) and I had no extra time. Anyway, I was searching on twitter and came across this:

Plot update of the Gu Family’s Book:
Yoon Seo Hwa (Lee Yeon Hee) & the guardian god of Jiri mountains, Gu Wal Ryung fell in love but due to the trap of their enemies, the Yoon family status fell into ruins. While Seo Hwa was on the run with her maid (Kim Bo Mi), she received news that Wal Ryung had disappeared after a mishap. Feeling unable to raise her son while escaping, she sent him down the river in basket hoping that someone could take him in.
Choi Kang Chi who grew up with the Choi family after he was picked up from river, discovered that he is actually a half man half beast when he was going after criminals when his special abilities began to show. In order to become a full human, he needs the gu family’s book to find a way to. But destiny once again leads his first love’s family to suffer the same ill fate that his mom’s family had gone through.
Kang Chi slowly became caught as well between two women. His first love who will do anything to restore her family upper class status and his teacher’s daughter who gradually hold a special place in his heart through their constant fightings.
Kang Chi is finally forced to fight against his greatest enemy, his father who had lost all his memories 20 years ago and was tricked into helping his enemies.

January 12, 2013

I don’t know if this is possible, but according to a dclsg fan, the first script reading was held yesterday!!!

I guess the production team is just trying to keep everything under tight wraps right now.

This was actually revealed by SeungGi at the birthday party. So it’s definitely true!


Here’s a cast list posted on dcmbcdrama:

Choi Kang Chi – Lee Seung Gi
Dam Yeo Wool – Suzy
Kang Chi’s mother – Lee Yeon Hee
Lee Soon Shin – Park Sung Woong
Kang Chi’s friend – Lee Sang Yeob


January 11, 2013

There have been lots of articles on the possible casting of Lee Yeon Hee today. Honestly, I’ve never heard of this actress before and I wasn’t too enthusiastic after reading her Wikipedia article. And I’ve been crazily busy at work, so I wasn’t planning to post anything on this except the enewsworld article link. But some of you seem to have lingering questions.

Anyway, I read some of the Korean articles. Her casting is not finalized yet, because some details still need to be ironed out. It’s not explicitly stated in the articles, but I do not think she will be the 2nd female lead! She’s only making a ‘special appearance’, but her role will be ‘essential to the unfolding of the plot’.

January 8, 2013

More rumors from dcmbcdrama:

The 1st female lead is Choi Kang Chi’s teacher’s daughter who is an instructor at her father’s martial arts center. The 2nd female lead is Choi Kang Chi’s first love.
Choi Kang Chi’s likes and dislikes are very clear. To him, there’s no in betweeen, like half friend or half enemy.
Born reckless, his body reacts before his head. It’s the period of growth for the reckless simpleton, Choi Kang Chi.
The 2nd female lead becomes a courtesan after her family goes bankrupt, but she has ambitions to climb up the social ladder again.
It’s Kang Eun Kyung’s specialty. The main character grows up through life challenges. The drama is centered around the challenges, rather than the characters. The stage is set with ill-fated relationships from the earlier generation, and the main character starts out as a reckless simpleton. This is a story of Choi Kang Chi going through hardships and growing up.

And according to a dclsg fan, the drama will only have 20 episodes.

English translation: tryp96.wordpress.com


January 7, 2013

These are all rumors, so please take everything with a big grain of salt. 😛

Someone posted on dcmbcdrama that the main story takes place right before the Imjin war in the Joseon Dynasty. The famous Navy Admiral Lee Soon Shin (or Yi Sun Sin) will be Choi Kang Chi’s mentor. Choi Kang Chi’s biological father (Gu xx) is a gumiho, and doesn’t seem to age at all.

I read on baidu tieba that the 1st female lead is a girl from a prominent family. She and Choi Kang Chi are in love. The 2nd female lead is a martial arts instructor who has a crush on Choi Kang Chi and always protects him.

And according to dangerous870113, filming will start on January 23 in Jejudo and continue there for a month. After that, they’ll also film on location in Gyeongju, Yongin, and Mungyeong.

January 5, 2013

SeungGi had said before that his character was born of a human mother and a deity father. It turns out that his father is the deity/god/spirit of Jirisan. At least according to the rumors. 😛

It’s also rumored that Han Chae Ah has been cast as the other female lead.

source: baidu tieba

January 4, 2013

Someone posted this on dclsg. The drama might have 30 episodes?! Park Sung Woong has also been added to the cast, but his role is still unclear [to us :P].

A Korean fan (dangerous870113) tweeted this:

In Gu Family Book, the main female character is named “Dam Yeo-ul” and supporting female character is “Park Cheong-jo”.


The person who tweeted the script photo is probably a production staff. She tweeted this today:

Reactions to ‘Gu Family Book’ script photo… ㅋ We’ll work hard~~ Please look forward to it~~ ^^

Another dclsg fan read that the filming in Jejudo would take about a month. They are recruiting extras for court ladies and gisaengs (Korean geisha). Could Choi Kang Chi be related to the royal family? 😛

January 3, 2013

Is it too early to start this post? After seeing the picture of the script, I just can’t contain my excitement anymore! 😛

Anyway, according to a dclsg fan, the new drama (GFB?) will be filming in Jejudo in late January, possibly starting on January 23. And because it’s a sageuk, the drama will be filmed mostly in the countryside.

    I want to know his hairstyle looks like…

  2. judepps says:

    the most awaited drama for us Airens, Can’t wait to watch it Seunggi in a Saguek drama…but a had these mixed emotions too..hoping to have a great cast and a well written script all through out for GFB. *im crossing my fingers* On the top of that wishing Seunggi will had a n enjoyable time during filming too..though i guess it’ll be colder during shooting.

  3. meliejoo says:

    This drama doesn’t talk about female actress at all..
    it’s all about wanted to become a human.. i hope the rating doesn’t blame LSG again..

    • manassuper says:

      i think when the full official synopsis of drama is released we can get a clear idea about the heroine aspect…..but i think as posted by the media drama will mostly centered around LSG and his father but you never know things can change…better to wait i guess for the official storyline……….

  4. manassuper says:

    should start sooner than later…….looks like heart gonna explode with excitement….before filming in late january script reading should be round the corner now in a few days….hoping for seeing awesome photos of the cast at script reading session at MBC Dream Center – Ilsan …………

  5. Anonymous says:

    I do have strong confidence to Director Shin, who can bring LSG to another level!!!
    Hope Suzy can perform 120% but honestly speaking I have doubt on her still

    • yani says:

      we sure might have a doubt on Suzy, especially in the last drama Seung Gi acted together with Ha Ji Won who has a long history of great acting performance. But anyway, let’s look it positively… in the last reviews of her drama, they said Suzy’s acting was really good. So finger cross that both of her and our Seung Gi can deliver their best acting in their upcoming drama 😉

  6. wanne says:

    It’s never too early, Tryp. We’ve been anticipating this drama ever since Seunggi’s involvement was announced. And with every new updates, my excitement just keep increasing more and more. Today, I can’t barely contain it. I keep refreshing here and there.

    It’s great to hear that they will start filming soon. Really really looking forward to more casting news, spoiler pictures or anything related to GFB (It’s an odd abbreviation, just need to get used to it).

    Thanks for the updates!

  7. manassuper says:

    Heart-warming lee seungi….here ian another testimony to it…… i don’t know whwere could i find a heart-warming celebrity like LSG http://en.korea.com/blog/enter/tv/lee-seung-gis-handwritten-letter-moves-netizens-hearts/

  8. madqueen says:

    Any idea who the rest of the cast are? TK2H had great supporting cast whom LSG respected and learnt a lot from… hopefully it will be the same in this new drama.

  9. manassuper says:

  10. joingen says:

    Yay, it’s that time again to be excited and anxious on Seunggi’s drama!
    Feels like it was only yesterday when we were waiting for anything related to TK2H…how time flies! So many things to look forward to again.
    Thanks Seunggi-ya for all your hardwork and making us happy again and again!

    it’s prob gonna be not that great of a drama coz the writer has written man of glory before and that was horrible. and then there’s suzy. without a good supporting cast this will be another flop like kings 2 hearts

    • meliejoo says:

      TK2H story is worstest than this drama..

        If you are always so negative abt SG and his projects; this is not the site for you. Can you kindly visit other sites? We don’t need antis like you here.

      • leelee says:

        I don’t understand why you have to come here and pretend that you are a fan when it is very clear that you are a hater. Can you do us a favor? Spare us with your negative comments and do something worthwhile.

        Geez, I’m sorry guys. I’m usually quiet but this person always get into my nerves.

        As always, thank you very much Tryp! I don’t always leave a comment here but I appreciate your hardwork.

      • zambak70 says:

        meliejoo…..always the same ,i’ve never read anything positive from you 😦 if you dont like Seung Gi ,its your choice…no comment.but im sorry if you forget this is a blog of Seung Gi supporters.you said few days ago ,you banned from leeseunggi.com.,i dont suprised why….

      • summer21509 says:

        i really think this site is not the right one for you…we definitely don’t need your comment so better keep it to yourself….one last thing…i guess you have the worst taste in drama not to appreciate TK2H!

    • Lane says:

      I hope you are meliejoo because I don’t want to have another crazy person visiting this blog.
      No matter. Please just go away if you think this drama is that bad.

    • scbound says:

      I cant believe your nerve posting a comment such as this, especially on this site, If you cannot be positive, and post only positive and supportive posts for our Seung Gi, then please don’t post at all.

    • crazyajummafan says:

      Please get your facts correct before you post such inaccurate remarks!

    • Anonymous says:

      hmmm a fangirl who are envy of suzy nagaraaa

    • manassuper says:

      just want to say that you never know with the writer….the writer that wrote shinning inheritance wrote a crap like 49 days if i am not mistaken….there have many instances the writer who have wrote great hits are also writer of some horrible(may sound a little harsh) flicks…..so you never know this may be a spectacular piece and i think she is also the writer of BAKER KING which had very high ratings more than 40% so she has a good track record and also PD directing hit have a great track record in terms of hits like secret garden,gentleman’s dignity etc and knowing seunggi had a meeting with the writer and director PD before finalizing the drama the script must have been that much awesome…..so don’t get fooled and make silly assumptions ….as far as TK2H supporting cast is concerned i believe it was a dream cast with all seemed to perfectly match their charecters on screen……serously have you seen or not seen TK2H to make this silly claim of TK2H not having a good supporting cast…….and from where you got the information that TK2H was a flop……it had ratings more than 10% and 12.3 AGB on average so it is a hit…..anything above 10% is considered a hit in korea and it was not a weekend drama and it had a prime time slot on wedneday-thursday competing with 2 other dramas…..i am not saying it was a great hit but never can be counted as a flop as it had never had single digit ratings and always had more than 10% and considering the north-south background that the drama had it may not had a universal appeal to all the people of korea becoz of their strained relations with north but still it managed good numbers in terms of ratings if you take that in account and i would say it was a trendsetter in term of dramas having north-south background as we know movies or drama with north-south background have always terribly flopped,the classic example being myung wol the spy drama which had dismal single digit ratings………as far as suzy is concerned i was hoping for someone else to be the leading lady but i guess everone deserves a fair chance and she can definitetly improve and maybe who knows the seunggi-effect may bring a radicle change in her and she may giver her best performance with this drama…….so let’s trust seunggi,the writer and director PD and not make silly assumption and categorize drama as a flop or hit as per your wish…… i will not ask you post positive or negative comment but plz be reasonable be resonable and go through the facts before posting….plz don’t post silly foolish comments for the sake of it……

    • Airyn says:

      Geez, at least give them a chance to air a few episodes before calling doom and gloom on the drama. There are a lot of factors that contribute to a drama’s success, and you never know until it airs if the PD-writer-cast combination will actually result in an awesome show despite their individual shortcomings, or in this case, track record, or if the show will be well-received by the viewers.

      As fans of LSG (I assume, because you’re here; otherwise, in a perfect imitation of Prof. Quirrell from Harry Potter, I cry: “Troll! Troll in the dungeon!”), all we can really do right now is to support his decision to take on this drama and hope for the drama’s success. No amount of bashing and b*tching about the PD/writer/lead actress will change things anyway, unless you are the drama producer. 😉

  15. vendetta27 says:

    seriously sometimes for me the only bad thing about tryp’s website is meliejoo’s comments…

    Seunggi Oppa Fighting! I am waiting to see you on screen again as I am listening to your songs everyday! hehehe 🙂

  20. wanne says:

    Now that the broadcast date has been bring forward, they will need to start filming as soon as possible. A saguek drama I think normally shoot earlier than modern drama especially if they have action with wiring and stuff.

    Anyway, it’s good to hear that they will start filming soon. I wish everything will go well and smoothly for GFB! Fighting Seunggi, all the casts and crews! And they need to reveal more casts to us now. I’m dying of anticipation here!

  21. meliejoo says:

    I hope LSG and Suzy will have a best loveline in this drama..

  22. meliejoo says:

    Park Sung Woong?? is it means LSG’s father?? or Park Sung Woong join loveline to suzy and LSG??

  23. chloelyn lee says:

    Is Suzy confirmed to be the female lead? Hope they’ll make a right choice in choosing seung gi’s female counterpart. =)

  24. jan says:

    Dear Airens, Please don’t give unnecessary comments on actor or actress of this drama
    becos whoever whom you support or anti…still go to** GU FAMILY BOOK **

  25. Melbee says:

    I remember Seung Gi saying we’ll finally see his ‘action’ moves he’s been practicing. Either way, I’m sure he’s putting his all into whatever he’s doing so I’m anticipating in seeing another side of him. He always puts in his best. But as details come out, it reminds me how close we’ll see him on the small screen. The teasing is killing me… slowly. For now, I watch MGIAG and 1N2D reruns to fill the void.

  26. dalsg says:

    waks 30 episode! so the best newyear pressies from actor Lee Seunggi ^^ ♥♥ time flies..i feel excited to waiting again like k2h … most awaiting drama! 🙂

  28. Can’t wait to watch another drama series of our king lsg.. whoever his partner is? doesn’t matter. one thing i assure of.. lee seung gi is the best one,and king 2 hearts was the best drama series at all…..

  29. 30 episoooodes \^0^/. Am so happy to read this post. He mentioned several times that he wanted to act in a historical drama, I’m just so so glad finally he would have one!!

  30. ruro says:

    Omg, 30 eps, awesome, it seems like an epic drama. My weekly dosage of SG will be fulfilled :D. , I hope the action in there is as cool as in Chuno, not lame like Faith :(. It seems like SG will devote this year for drama, I hope he will consider movie after this 🙂

  31. Poply says:

    If l’m fan of minho,faith maybe i’m will hurt.but a lot event, i’m fan seunggi so i’m already my emotion if so what that you think. I read comment alot. What that you worried? Hurt byself or to another fan seunggi? For lead actress , i’m so okay. Now , i’m alway positive because we ‘re not them . I’m only hope good to seunggi , he no stress. So we should waiting it. I beleive him. He never let his way to down. Fighting seunggi. I’m only hope you not interest all negative , only do what that you think to do. Cheer up of what that you have. Love you.

    i like Han Chae Ah in doll mask.. she looks pretty with red lipstick..

  33. emily13 says:

    I like Suzy, She’s a beautiful girl and also a talented idol.I still dont know the plot but I think they can make a lovely couple. just imagine them as saguk Lovers…they both are lovely.
    and about TK2H… i dont know why you people say the drama is just GOOD…It was DAEBAK!!! actually although I know Seung Gi for about 2-3 years but I’ve became Seung Gi fan since TK2H. The Drama Style was NEW,The drama’s plot was AWESOME, actors were professionally GREAT, OST was WONDERFUL(I still have Kwill and Taeyeon’s in my daily music playlist), rating was GOOD, 2012 MBC Drama Awards was terrible…!
    Which one is important? The drama we watched together or ratings… or MBC?

    • AnnMichelle says:

      Dear emily13, Like you, I feel TK2H is GREAT all the way! I can find very little fault with that drama, and if you consider the trail blazing way it’s on in terms of drama genre and topical substance, there is no one out there that can touch it. I think that makes me feel WORSE when it’s been overlooked or slighted or unfairly criticized. For Seung Gi’s sake, I want EVERYONE to appreciate what a fine actor he’s become. (I believe all the Airens want that.) Therefore I can understand some people’s concerns regarding the new drama such as the writer, the co-stars, even the air-time and the station, etc. because we all want a commercial success as well as an artistic one.

      Our sage Seung Gi has said it before: a drama is teamwork – every department has to click and gel together in order for the drama to be successful. Seung Gi himself can only control so much. There is even less we audience can do especially at this stage. I choose not to criticize (as that will only create bad vibes and nothing else) but to cheer the whole project on. I certainly hope more people join in and help create a positive and cheerful environment for Seung Gi to work comfortably and without stress. I feel I can count you in. So, let’s say it: Seung Gi, fighting!!!

    I think everyone needs to calm down and just wait for the drama to start airing before passing judgements….lets not get into fights and become super aggressive…we r all mature individuals who don’t need to act like 5 yr olds..giving too much attention to the ppl writing negative comments just makes them want to write more..

      I’m sorry but you must have just visited this blog very recently to say that. Just so that you know, this person has done this for the nth time, and we have actually been calm on most instances. I just find it funny that you are talking about judgement and here you are implying that we are acting like 5 year olds.

      As I’ve mentioned above, I don’t usually leave a comment here but I’ve been visiting this blog almost everyday. This is my Seung Gi haven and I’m sure it’s the same for most of International Airens. I think it’s downright insulting not just to us fans but to the owner of this blog that someone feels that she’s free to troll around here.

        the passing judgement part was for the drama not the ppl commenting here…pls read a little more closely and the being aggressive part was for the ppl(both fans and nonfans)…and actually no its not my first time here and i am not a recent fan…i hav followed him since his debut…but even the person u support (lee seung gi) is always calm and cordial even when he faces harsh comments and wins ppl over with his awesomeness so mayb we shld try and pick up his habits

        • leelee says:

          My apologies then. As I’ve said I don’t usually leave a comment here and even more so in other sites even if they bash Seung Gi left and right, it’s just that this site is supposed to be dedicated to him and it’s frustrating to see this person leaving negative comments in a lot of thread here. Hope you understand. Moving forward, let’s keep the positivity then, cheers!

    I heard that Jang ok jang will air in March earlier than LSG’s drama??
    I hope LSG will effect on every drama rating..

    LSG talents are backed by an extremely intelligent brain 🙂 As a person who has been catching up on his performances and interviews in the recent past …..one thing is clear to me that he has grown in stature as a person and an artist. He did not reach this point by making unwise decisions He is smart enough to know where he is heading and how he wants to reach that point. The fact that he is excited about the drama and looking forward to and working hard at it at the training centre should be enough for all his admirers. It will be a great step forward for his growth as an artist. All the best to him. 🙂

    Ooh! I hope the part about Han Chae Ah’s casting is true. I liked her in Gaksital, so it’ll be great to see her in a different kind of historical drama. 🙂

    i don’t understand korea writing.. T_T
    help to translate

  39. meliejoo says:

    aww.. I love the love line.. it looks smiliar as TVB drama.. haha

  40. scbound says:

    I liked the deity father as the story line better than a gumiho, I looked up spirit of Jirisan and it was interesting, I hope that one turns out to be correct, I have not heard Seung Gi ever mention gumiho… but most think the name Gu implies that I think… I am in no matter what…….

  41. AnnMichelle says:

    Dear Tryp,
    Thank you very much for the latest rumors. Love them! The more the better! Hahaha!
    Poor Seung Gi will be roaming in the countryside during Lunar New Year then…So sorry about that, dear boy. Hope you have a great time working (as I am sure you will).

  42. noodlelover says:

    seems seung gi choose something (totally) new? in his previous projects were always him who had that kind of family background, the prominent ones…oh finally, he could get himself off those rich-badass characters(??)
    can’t wait any longer… 🙂 fighting!!

  43. meliejoo says:

    MBC doctor horse rating dropping.. T_T I watched Yawang preview it seems cool.. T_T
    I hope LSG rating would get higher..

  44. sarah says:

    each News and tidbits are interesting and Im getting super excited!!! cant wait..^^
    Thanks Tryp!!^^

  45. kimia says:

    is there any drama about Lee Soon Shin or Imjin war ?i dont know him!
    cant wait for gu family book it seems very interesting
    but why choi kang chi and his father have different family name?maybe they dont live togheter?

    sorry for my bad eng

  46. meliejoo says:

    is it because He is adopted child?? thats why he and the father with different name

  47. melissa says:

    Reading yesterday I thought the martial arts instructor sounded more like the 1st lead female than the second so yay… I like her already. The love line sounds cute.

    • Mich says:

      Same here. So Im glad thecl recent rumor states that she’s the 1st female lead. Loving this already!

  48. meliejoo says:

    isn’t it 30 ep?? why is this so short??

    • melissa says:

      20 is longer than a lot of dramas. Neither 30 nor 20 is confirmed, though 20 sounds more reasonable. Don’t take things written so seriously yet.

  49. Yunee says:

    Can anyone clarify for me? Does that mean that Suzy will be the martial art instructor while Han Chae Ah will be his first love? That doesn’t sound right to me….

    • melissa says:

      From the rumors today Suzy = the instructor with a crush who protects him, which makes sense to me given she’s younger and usually main leads don’t start dramas out in love. 🙂 Han Chae Ah is the older first love high society girl

      • Yunee says:

        Thanks for clarifying 🙂 I guess I can’t picture Suzy being an instructor cause she’s so young. Plus when I think of first love, I associate it with youth hence Suzy, not that I’m saying that Han Cha Ah is by any means old. ( don’t ask me why my brain works that way, but for some odd reason I’m picturing Han Chae Ah as being Seung Gi’s current love and instructor). I guess I’ll have to wait for the drama to start so I can visually picture it. April needs to get here faster !!!!

        • melissa says:

          Ha. We are thinking oppositely. I was thinking 2nd lead/first love would be more like the second lead in MGIAG. Hopefully nicer though! 1st lead/Suzy would be the younger woman instructor who has a crush on him who he probably doesn’t look at romantically, but one who is always there for him. I think I’m thinking too much about this show already. 🙂

      • noodlelover says:

        *paying attention*
        seriously, just watching you discussing the plot already made my heart beating faster XD XD XD
        fully expecting this drama..cant wait cant wait cant wait aaargh

    • noodlelover_ says:
