    It feels that Suzy’s the idol that K-netizens hate the most nowadays through tons of critics under her any articles whatever it was. Hate what they called the power of sponsors behind her that made her being famous but not by her real talent. And so sigh that after then any articles about Seung Gi relating to her will be attacked by their harshest critics without a reason. It’s so unfair to him. Hope that our boy won’t be aware of any bad comments like he said.

      look at this disgusting comment, which gives lee seung gi fans, and lee seung gi himself, a bad name. you really don’t know what you are talking, how heavy are the words you used against a teenager girl, i’ll hope that this is just ignorance, and not a nasty personality. i refuse to believe that seunggi has a fan that thinks and speaks that way, especially when unfortunately the south korean industry is incredible harsh with women, and whenever a girl becomes popular they judge her for everything, they claim she has things for her looks, but yet she is not good looking enough and it goes on, and things are especially hard with idols. i feel embarrassed to see that seunggi, who is one of the most lovely and genuinely sweet entertainers out there, and started as a singer, who had to fight and prove his way as a serious actor that he is, has such a terrible fan, who are blinded by whatever reasons and bash his co-star, which i am sure he would never appreciate and would be rather ashamed of this sort of behavior.

    i understand when I read those comments.. T_T
    they respect LSG to act.. but the netizen don’t like Suzy to perform in a drama because of her acting in other drama like ” dream high or Big “

  6. Ivory says:

    Well, Im sure that Suzy will work extra hard since her partner is Lsg. she aware that he is a super popular one, I bet that she also knew that if she fail everyone will bashed her to death.
    Lsg is a very considerate and reasonable guy with talent plus brain. He must be aware but again its Lsg. He will changes critic into challanges. He will help Suzy, and give her a cue. Like he did Shin mi nah. Suzy also knew that she will be in a good hand. The things she didnt know that Lsg is a perfectionist and very detail
    Oriented. Suzy…..please bring all the multivitamins and all the strength you gonna need. Remember your lines well….learn your martial arts well, do your Bow practices at least a thousand each day….if not you will have to have a zillion NG.
    So, looking forward to this collaboration.

    • imeadd says:

      Yeah, let’s give her a try but again like Ivory said she need to double the effort in order to catch up uri perfectionist LSG so…let’s see how this pairing turns out.
      *are you that “Ivory” I know?*

    Article: Lee Seung Gi and Suzy ‘Gu Family Book’ first historical acting attempt, how will they be as a couple?
    Source: Newsen via Nate

    1. [+668, -266] How could it be Suzy….

    2. [+712, -342] How could both the leads be singers… What a punch in the pride to actors

    3. [+646, -297] There are actors, even talented rookie actors all over the place and yet they really can’t stand to run one drama without an idol, can they? It’s not even like they’re good, it’s all about the power of money

    4. [+236, -33] Lee Seung Gi’s acting in The King was great. Really looking forward to his attempt at historical acting. ㅋ

    5. [+225, -28] Lee Seung Gi was good in The King so I’m looking forward to Gu Family Book…

    Article: Lee Seung Gi – Suzy first historical drama through ‘Gu Family Book’

    1. [+162, -14] I seriously don’t get why people are so obsessed with Suzy. She’s so average.

    2. [+156, -19] Is it impossible to produce dramas without idols anymore? I don’t hate Suzy but every single drama is just filled with dramas. I don’t know whether I’m watching a drama or Inkigayo anymore./

    3. [+149, -13] I don’t like the female lead. Lee Seung Gi used to work with people like Ha Ji Won, Shin Min Ah ㅋㅋㅋ

    4. [+141, -14] Oh dear… She can’t even read her regular lines properly, how can they stick her in a historical drama?

    5. [+147, -24] With the way they keep sticking Suzy in roles just because of her pretty face, she’s going to end up like Kim Tae Hee, stuck in the same position forever. They never improve the more works they star in… They have to go right back to their roots and work their way up to improve . cr: netizebuzzz Although there are some harsh comments on suzy but it in majority all netizens are postive around LSG and i believe with his acting he will put to rest all the the doubts for remote people who doubt him………remember at dramabeans and the flak he recieved on casting in TK2H but again with his spectacular acting made those who doubted his credibility eat their own words…..so i am confident lee seung gi the actor will shine with this drama…………as for suzy everbody deserve a fair chance and she can definitely improve and who knows with lee seung gi around that effect may rub on to her and bring a radicle change and she give her best performance up to date in this drama……hoping everything will work out fine and both shine through the drama and drama becomes “DAEBAK”…….

    Ooohhh should we anticipate suzy kicking seunggi’s ass in this drama?

  9. focus to the story.. cant stop picturing them just like inuyasha and kagome :3

  10. babygirl says:

    Who don’t start life as Zero ? since Seung Gi & Suzy are acting together in “Gu family book ” We Airens and Suzy’s Fan should 100 % support them. “Gu Family Book” Fighting!

  11. Ay says:

    Lee Seung Gi is the king not only because he is a talented entertainer but also because he has a big heart. He appreciates, respects and cares about the people around him, including his co-workers. So as his fans, we should extend similar appreciation towards the people he works with. I have faith in him that even if things aren’t 100% ideal, he has the ability and strength to turn things around. And he needs the support of his fans to do so. He is probably very busy and feels some pressure as filming starts and the last thing he needs is negative vibes from his fans towards the drama.

    Let’s be positive and optimistic and be supportive regardless.

  12. blackholeangel says:

    thank ay a lot. u taught me a lesson. as his fan, i should appreciate, respect and care about people around me. always keep faith in him. seung gi hwaiting, suzy hwaiting. the best drama, the best couple, the most meaningful drama

  13. manassuper says:

    Another testimony to lee seung gi heartwarming persona…….how can you not love lee seung gi he is just too perfect….here goes the article… http://en.korea.com/blog/enter/tv/lee-seung-gi-smiles-like-a-father-looking-at-little-kids/

  14. Maris says:

    If Suzy can put up a convincing display of martial arts required for the role, there will be nothing to worry about with even average acting. She is cute enough to look good on screen. The main character is based on LSG’s character. So really, I don’t think there is anything to worry about. It will be a good drama.
