Casting finalized for You’re All Surrounded

These are names we’ve all heard previously linked to upcoming SBS cop drama You’re All Surrounded, but now they’re confirmed as the leads: Cha Seung-won reunites with his Best Love (and CF) frenemy Lee Seung-gi, and Go Ara rounds out the main trio.

Ahh, this is a great lineup, and now I only hope the series can make full use of them. You’re All Surrounded features a set of rookies at the Gangnam Police Department in Seoul; there will be four of them at the center, so aside from Seung-gi and Go Ara we can expect to see two more names. (I’m presuming they’ll be more like sidekicks, so perhaps we’ll get some fresh faces.) Go Ara will play the sole female in the new class of officers, and her character will be bold and persistent—certainly traits we’ve seen her play, as in last year’s hit Answer Me 1994.

Seung-gi’s played a bunch of dorky and heo-dang characters and that’s definitely his real-life image from variety, but he’ll be taking on a different personality as the intelligent, taciturn hero with the IQ of 150 and a painful family history. Cha Seung-won, meanwhile, will play the team leader of the violent crimes unit. I know he’s a badass mofo but he’s also capable of being utterly hilarious, so I hope he’ll get his share of comic moments, preferably with Seung-gi at his side. I mean, why waste a good thing?

You’re All Surrounded, which is written by Ojakkyo Brothers’ Oh Jung-sun, will follow the upcoming thriller Three Days, putting its premiere at the end of April.

Sorry, just had to do this once since everyone makes a big deal out it. I promise not to do it again. Can you tell I'm bored? It was this or dishes. Which would you choose?

By the way, I am looking forward to this.

Really glad to see they've all officially signed the contract. Now I can officially get excited. Seung-gi and CSW has some great chemistry/bromance going on, so here's hoping Go Ara has loads of romantic chemistry with Seung-gi too.

JB, (or rather anyone *without* a bias mind really, lol) - do you guys know who the main lead actually is? As in LSG or CSW? It's a little murky whatwith both of them being A-list actors. Or are they both equal leads... Curiosity getting the better of me here ~ its been a while since dramaland has had two huge names star in the same show. Both just never does second fiddle... hmmm

LSG Is the lead

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

It's not about bias. LSG is the main lead. The articles released confirming from the production company called him that and he's always been attached to the project since last year. The story follows the 4 rookies. Though CSW's character is obviously going to be important enough to get him to sign on for it.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

Because the drama is about the rookies, I think LSG is the lead but CSW is also important for the drama flow, he won't be the second fiddle, he's mentor for 4 rookies.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

they're both leads, kinda like what happened with tree with deep roots. was jang hyuk's character the lead lead? No. The king, the villain, and jang hyuk played the leads. Team effort, and that's better than a single lead IMO. An ensemble cast, so to speak.

Required fields are marked *

LSG is the lead, as the previous commentator said - but I confess that really wish it were Cha Seung-won. Ever since Greatest Love, I've been waiting to see him again in a nice funny, romancey role... though I guess this isn't really that kind of series anyway. ;-)

They should just make a Greatest Love Alternate Universe with the same actors. I want moooore!!!!

Ahem. Sorry. ;-)

speaking of bromance, I bet Cha Seung Won and Kang Ji Hwan would have sparkling platonic chemistry. They're both wildly talented actors with a penchant for drama and comedy. I know we've never seen them together, but I'm throwing the idea out there and hoping someone will catch it!

Cha Seung Won is back! ohohoh bad-ass + funny, just like you said, javabeans! I am all - muahahaha although violent crimes is no laughing matter but it is also not all that is in their life. people who deal with grim stuff at work are bound to seek for some light-hearted fun on their off-time.
and Lee Seung Ki was rather smart in K2H wasn´t he.... towards the end anyhow
This is going to be awesome

and I like Go Ara, I liked her even before AM94

I'm happy with the cast! From the character descriptions leaked Go Ara's character is one year older than Seunggi's and he's the maknae of the team. :D Should be fun. I hope she bosses him around.... CSW and LSG already have proven bromance so they better not waste it.

I'm interested in who they other 2 cops will end up being. Since they have the leads finalized I hope for a cast spree soon.

Why has "Park Min Young" declined her two casting offers?? Does she have other drama casting in hand?
Both "Doctor stranger" & "All surrounded" sound interesting & promising dramas with good male cast.
I'm wondering if she intends 2 continue her acting career!

I think I read somewhere that it was PMY's agency that was trying to get her the role and they were rejected not the other way around, but I don't know how true that is. It honestly makes more sense than her rejecting roles in potentially big shows, especially as it doesn't seem like she has another project lined up.

Yeay, the drama is confirm. Can't wait to see this.. in the meantime can we have the cast from SBS variety do the cameo in this drama. Maybe as the paramedic team or fire fighter. It must be awesome to see the mash up.

Now I want to t see Lee Seung Gi act with his same label hyung Lee Seo Jin. They never had a drama together rite?

I cannot wait for this! Seunggi needs to pay me back with a good drama after GFB last year. I mean he did really great with his character, but GFB's storyline was crappy. Fingers crossed that he will blow my mind again, just as he did in TK2H. This might be his last drama before he enlists this year (if the rumor is true).
Also, it is nice to see Mr. Cha (he's a fantastic actor) and Go Ara! She was really good at Reply 1994, so I look forward for her in this drama!

I always in Love with Lee Seung Gi, the Sexy Ahjussi Cha Seungwon since Best Love, and Go Ara because i love Reply 1994 so much.

I just hope that they will cast the babyface adorable handsome sexy Ahn Jae Hyun as one of the other police. He is doing good in YWCFAS and i want to see him more.

My two dramas quotient for April has been filled and neither is a rom-com. Someone call the cops, I think my body has been snatched. I've never seen Go Ara in anything and I won't watch 1994 now that I know she chose garbage. I'm going to watch this for Cha Seung-won and the epic bromine he's about to have with Lee Seungi-gi. Ah my Best Love feels. Between this and Big Man, my April will be made.

i think you're really missing out on r1994 if the sole reason you won't watch it is because of who she ends up with.. then again there's a multitude of other reasons why the whole drama is kind of a turn off but the positives far outweigh the negatives.

YES I am so excited!!! PLEASE be good, be good, be good! Of all the dramas coming up, this is the one I'm most excited for! And I just re-watched some of OB so I have faith that the writer will be able to come up with something good. This will be a lot different than a family drama though and I do hope that they really go for the comedy.

I'm stoked that Ara accepted and hopefully she'll be able to put herself into this role in the same way she did in Answer Me. Mostly I just think her and Seungi make for a great pairing. Though only time will tell whether it rivals his pairing with Cha Seung Won because THAT is going to be fantastic.

I was reading the link JB provided on the Zippel ad CSW-LSG shot back in 2011. LOL the post is such a hoot, and I remember being a Seung-gi fan back then too, but he looked so much younger... These days he oozes with sexiness, but he was such a baby then!

I hope they have loads of comedy scenes with LSG's character screwing up big time. He is the slacker so I'm expecting that from the get-go.

Too bad Lee Hong-ki is currently doing a drama. Someone suggested him on twitter as one of the other rookie cops and I thought it was such a fantastic idea. I think he and Seung-gi would have had such adorable bromance. Oh well...

I mean come on cha seung won and lee seung gi are A list actors and buddies in real life. So i have high expectation from this pair, not forgetting go ara but i think she will do her best from her sunbaes,no??
