Lee Seung Gi Cast as Male Lead in Movie ‘Marital Harmony’

*updated* Writer: Kim Dong Hyuk, PD: Hong Chang Pyo

Lee Seung Gi, 2nd screen challenge through ‘The Face Reader’ production company Jupiter Film’s new movie

Singer/actor Lee Seung Gi has been finalized as the male lead of the movie ‘궁합’ (GoongHap, Marital Harmony). ‘GoongHap’ is planned as the 2nd movie in the ‘Divination Trilogy’ by Jupiter Film, the production company of ‘The Face Reader’ that was released in 2013, so it’s highly anticipated and there has been heightened attention on who will take on the leading roles.

Several movie insiders told The Fact on July 20, “Lee Seung Gi has been confirmed as the male lead of ‘GoongHap’ and the only thing left is the technicality of signing the contract.” One insider explained, “Lee Seung Gi read the scenario and showed positive response. He’s negotiated the specifics recently and has decided to star in the movie.”

Actress Shim Eun Kyung has been cast as the female lead.

The production company will finish casting soon, and filming is scheduled to begin in September.

GoongHap is a romantic comedy sageuk that looks into secretive man-woman relationships through goonghap to work out two people’s future.

‘The Face Reader’ was very successful, attracting over 9 million viewers, so its follow-up movie in the trilogy has naturally come into the spotlight. ‘GoongHap’ is reportedly a little more cheerful than ‘The Face Reader’ and has a more lighthearted subject matter, the internal assessment is that Lee Seung Gi’s gentle image fits the character perfectly.

      She’s a talent young actress. She also gets pretty well-loved by the public since she was a child actress, even the number of dramas and movies which she appeared is bigger than her age lol. SEK and Seung Gi also received this honored award (through poll) last year: https://tryp96.wordpress.com/2014/09/19/lee-seung-gi-voted-as-the-best-mannered-young-actor/

      Honestly, I personally prefer SYK as Seung Gi’s partner in this movie than any young actresses around the same age who people think would match well with Seung Gi. Not like as drama, the acting skill is a very important element in a movie so if it’s a young actress whose talent also get high recognized by the public, such as SEK, it seems to be the best choice for Seung Gi as a new comer in movie land since he’ll be able to focus on his character as much as possible without a distraction abt anything else beside his acting compared to what he had to do on other dramas or even with his 1st movie “Love Forecast”.
