Cast gathers for table reads for Joseon Gunman

Script reads! That means production is swinging into gear, and that means pretty soon we’ll have stills, and ahhhh, my level of excitement for Joseon Gunman has me concerned because I’m pretty sure if the drama doesn’t turn out awesome, I’m going to be massively disappointed, and that’s just a tough bar to set from the get-go. But it’s got so many things I like that I can’t help but fixate on what I hope it to be.

Here we have all the main stars for the KBS action sageuk drama, most notably Lee Jun-ki in the hero’s role as the titular Joseon gunman who goes out seeking revenge against the villains who killed his family, who ends up becoming a hero for the people. Nam Sang-mi plays the noble lady-turned-modern woman who becomes his love interest. The drama comes from the director of The Princess’s Man, which was a gorgeous fusion sageuk (particularly in the beginning parts before the drama went live-shoot and lost its pretty camera) whose solid mix of thrills, conflict, and romance I hope to see repeated in Joseon Gunman.

Second leads are played by Jeon Hye-bin (God of the Office) and Han Joo-wan (King’s Family), and I also spy Yoo Oh-sung (Faith), Ahn Seok-hwan (Basketball), and Lee Min-woo (a Princess’s Man alum) at the table read.

Joseon Gunman premieres on June 18. Time to make my countdown calendar.

(if only it wasn't going up against the GHJ drama, I hate when two of my biases are pitted against each other in a time slot because someone always loses T_T

Lol. They could be on different time slots and both be ranked last. ;)

But "Joseon Gunman" has already been confirmed to follow KBS's "Golden Cross" in June; "It's Okay, It's Love" would be after SBS's "You're All Surrounded" in July. Both air on Wednesdays and Thursdays and I just don't see any scenario where they could be transferred to different time slots.

@javabeans I think the premiere is June 25th and not the 18th.

With an awesome cast helmed by the PD of The Princess' Man, it's hard not to be excited. I'm crossing my fingers that the drama is good and that it'll be well received.

More like sageuk-fusion oppa!

I'm so glad he doesn't do straight sageuk 'cause those are tough to follow for me.

Honestly, I couldn't focus enough to read the words in this post, so my main takeaway from it is this: Lee Jun Ki continues to be super-humanly good-looking.

It's just a script reading but Lee Jun-ki looks so heavenly. My darling is simply glowing. Everything else fades into the background. For him, I hope this show is epic.

I hope this is like Iljimae - The Phantom Thief - also starring LJK - that drama was a blast - loved the comedy, action and characters.

Looking forward to this one!

LJK is probably the prettiest man on tv bar none (Korean or otherwise).

He was so distracting in My Girl (one of the first Kdramas I've seen) that I was wondering why the girl didn't go for him.

Looking forward to this sageuk - I think he looks better in historical costumes.

Ah, Junki, it's great to see you back.

And Nam Sangmi in something I want to watch! My fondness for her dates back to the Bad Family days, but ever since TBDW and Gourmet, I haven't really seen her in anything and I'm stoked.

When this becomes a hit (and it WILL be a hit, mind you), he'll be three for three with me ever since coming back from the army and I'll be fully convinced that he has a knack for picking projects and characters.

I love LJK in sageuk. He seems to suited in sageuk...
But it will be battle of seasoned actors:
TBDAW couple in Joseon Shooter, Jjangs Couple in Fated To Love You, Jo In Sung-Gong Hyo Jin in It's Okay It's Love.
Now I'm confused which one will get high ratings.

PLEASE BE GOOD PLEASE BE GOOOOOOOD

Princess's Man is my all-time favourite drama the heroine there one of the most well characterized favourite heroines ever!

and I'm trying my best not too get my hopes up but it's LJK (who was brilliant in Arang btw) in a fusion sageuk again and the premise sounds great and I cant wai and I'm just so excited!! :D

Plus LMW is in it as well! He broke my heart in TPM and his scenes with HSH's character rivaled the main pairing's love story. I fully expect to cry buckets again for his performance her,e and I don't mind it oppa... as long as you're not the villain please?

Haven't watched any good sageuk miniseries recently & hope that this will be good.

Really curious to see Nam Sangmi in a sageuk as I've only watched her in modern day dramas so far.

Especially looking forward to the reunion of Choi Jae Sung and Junki and of course, Junki's fabulous fight scenes.

And yay, my favourite apple-splitting ahjussi is also in this drama!
