Sung Dong-il joins My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho

Actor Sung Dong-il is the newest addition to the fantasy-melodrama series My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho, joining the two leads, Lee Seung-gi (Brilliant Legacy) and Shin Mina (The Naked Kitchen).

Sung is often cast for his comedic acting, but as he showed in Chuno as a violent slave hunter, there’s more to his presence than mere comic relief. Still, expect him to bring the funny; a source with the production identified Sung’s role as the one proffering the most laughs.

Sung plays the owner and martial arts director at a top action school, which puts him in contact with the drama’s hero, played by Lee Seung-gi. The hero’s dream is to become an action-film star, and he becomes his student. The director character is keen on achieving “real action” scenes that don’t make use of wire work, and therefore tries to recruit the gumiho (Shin Mina), because she is not only beautiful but agile per her gumiho skills.

The Hong sisters’ My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho will begin filming in early July and premieres in August.

Hrmm. So regardless of this drama being tagged as a fantasy-melo, am I still right to hope for some comedy as per the Hong sisters? I mean I've heard you mention comedy, but I don't think I've ever heard it mentioned directly that that is what the drama is (partly, at least). Maybe they're just trying to emphasize more the fantasy-melo part while promoting? A different image from what they usually put out, so to say. So do you know for sure what the case is? I love me some Hong sisters comedy. ^^

Oh, he was one of my faves in Chuno, so this is great news to me. I've never seen him in anything else, so I'll be excited to see him all cleaned up!

Thanks JB!

Whoooo!!! =)

Ah, I still haven't watch this 2010 drama "Chuno", that's why I've never seen Sung Dongil in these dramas this before, heh! Anyway, I can't wait to able to watch this incoming drama "My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" -- because of Lee Seung Ki, yeaa!!!

Ooh, Is it Shin Mina ?? Oooh, of course, I had seen her that before in that awesome action-suspense drama "The Devil" -- it's really AWESOME!

To Theebby01 --- Ahh, I am surprised that you seem like you really don't like this actress Shin Mina. There's nothing bother me to watch her like that.

Anyway, DO YOUR BEST & FIGHTING!!! =) =)

Aaargh! Love this guy. As much as the premise of the show sounds awesome and it’s by the Hong Sisters, I’m not too big on Lee Seung-ki and Shin Mina. Although with the latter I’m going to keep an open mind, she has the potential, she just never reaches it, maybe this will be ‘it’ for her.
But my point is, SDI is awesome and definitely gives me further reason to watch this show now. I remember him in Fashion 70s, ‘’naeuri-hee-hee’’ in Chuno and have been meaning to see him in Descendants of Hong Dil-gong with Lee Beom-soo, for ages.

About GF is a Gumiho being 'serious', I don't know, Hong Sisters rarely market their upcoming dramas as 'comedy', it's only when you watch them that you know it's pure hilarity. I think?

Sung Dong-il is a fantastic comedianand I love his role in Lawyer of Korea the best! I am still not particularly keen on this drama as I don't feel anything for Lee Seung-gi. But who would give Hong sisters' drama a miss?
