Supporting roles filled for Joseon Gunman

With our main cast in place for sageuk revenge-action drama Joseon Gunman—which would be Lee Jun-ki, Nam Sang-mi, and Han Joo-wan—now the show has announced the casting of several supporting roles. Let’s take a look-see at who’s joining the party:

Otani Ryohei (Gu Family Book, The Chaser) has signed on to play a Japanese warrior who will come to be a helpful figure in Lee Jun-ki’s transformation into hero of the people. He’s a rather mysterious character who is purported to be important to the plot’s development and will figure in the second half of the show’s run (…although it sounds like the producers are willing to play this one by ear, because one rep said that there’s a possibility that his personality could change along the way).

Jeon Hye-bin (God of the Workplace) will play a merchant’s daughter with “a charisma as strong as her beauty is cold.” Sounds like a meaty role for her, as the character tries to dominate with money but faces tragic developments when she meets a love that money can’t buy.

Then we have Yoo Oh-sung (Friend 2, Faith), who will be stepping into the antagonist’s role (which, frankly, he does so well). He’ll be a constant source of danger and tension for Lee Jun-ki, which is great since Yoo Oh-sung is a pretty effective villain (when he’s not being absurdly over-the-top, that is, as he was in Faith—although in that case I hardly minded, because he was hilarious to watch).

And just to refresh all our memories: Lee Jun-ki is the son of Joseon’s last greatest swordsman, who takes up the gun to avenge his father and sister and becomes a hero of the commoners. Nam Sang-mi is the gently reared young lady who taps into her tougher side as she’s swept up by the whims of Fate, finding an inner mettle. And Han Joo-wan is a young man harboring dreams of revolution, who leads a lonely life due to his status as an illegitimate son.

Joseon Gunman is set to premiere on KBS on June 28, following Golden Cross.

Really?
He was awesome. They were all awesome together.
So intense.
I would like to see Park Gun Tae have a cameo, too.

I don't think there has ever been a cuter younger version of LJK than PGT.

Otani sounds like Mo Il Hwa
Jeon Hye-bin sounds like Gaya

(Potentially) awesome characters. I'll probably be on their side once this airs..... :D

I hope Heads can recap this. She needs a good drama to make up for AoI and Basketball.

Solid casts, pretty people (Lee Jun Ki!) with interesting story. I notice, I never watch a sageuk set up in 19th century so it will def my first experience as most sageuk tends to use setting in 15-17th century.
Hope it will be good in story and ratings! (for LJK's sake)

I wish Yoo OhSung would play in an interesting contemporary drama. For me he'll always be Jackson from Swallow the Sun and I don't mind seeing him in a similar environment. But a sageuk - well - I am sure many viewers will enjoy it...

Pics in here show that he'll wear suits!

http://forums.soompi.com/discussion/comment/27281068/#Comment_27281068 (it's ok if I post this right? :P )

But he might wear traditional clothes too because this show seems to be a fest of hanboks and modern clothes..

I haven't been this exited about a drama since Jung Woo's casting in Answer Me 1994 cast was announced. Princess Man production team + great cast = absolute perfection. Can't wait and thank Merlin it starts airing after my uni exams.

I hope this drama turn out really good with a solid plot and good script for Lee Jun Ki and Nam Sang Mi's sake. Since i like them both and this is also their reunion. I don't really like the plot that much but i'm willing to try and watch it first before judging it. It may turn out good after all, who knows?
