*updated with Hook’s response*
Actor Lee Seung Gi’s appearance on MBC new drama Kill Me Heal Me fell through.
According to a few broadcast insiders on December 2, Lee Seung Gi received the offer of the male lead, but after reviewing it, the casting eventually fell through.
The insiders said it was mostly due to schedule conflict. Lee Seung Gi’s first movie Today’s Love is about to be released next month [so he’ll be busy promoting the movie.]
A Hook official told Newsen, “We did discuss Lee Seung Gi’s appearance on Kill Me Heal Me, but reached the final decision of not accepting the offer. It’s a good project, and we were interested, but it overlaps with his movie schedule, and it’s difficult to accommodate.”
