Lee Seung-gi eyes cop role for next drama
Woo, Lee Seung-gi is considering his next drama already, and I like what I hear so far. (I enjoyed Gu Family Book to a point, but definitely think he was better than it was and I’d love to see him back in modern dramas.)
He’s received the offer for an SBS drama titled You’re All Surrounded, which will be directed by PD Yoo In-shik of Incarnation of Money, History of a Salaryman, and Giant, and written by Lee Jung-shin of Ojakkyo Brothers and Surgeon Bong Dal-hee. The story of You’re All Surrounded is centered around rookie cops in their twenties who don’t have much interest in their professions. Not much detail, but an interesting jumping-off point. The role Seung-gi is considering is the hero with “perfect looks but problematic personality,” heh. Sooooo… like all his other roles then. (This is not a bad thing. I love the way he can portray a character who ought to be a certain kind of capable/charming/perfect, but is riddled with a quirk or twenty.)
The PD’s works have been stylish and compelling, while the writer’s projects have a warm “human drama” element to them, so I’m going to suppose that this drama will be a heart-warming show with both comedic and melo elements, though that much is purely my speculation. We’ll have to wait for more news to find out what the actual plot and tone will be. But so far it sounds good, and I’ll be all ears to see how this show shapes up.
You’re All Surrounded will be a Wednesday-Thursday drama on SBS. It’ll follow the action-thriller Three Days, which puts its projected premiere sometime in April.
