Hell, Lee Seung Gi as Choi Kang Chi in Gu Family Book looks so cute I can’t even. That little pony-tail thingie does wonders for his usually cringe-worthy hair, and makes him simultaneously hotter yet more boyish. Don’t ask me how, it’s probably one of those mysteries of the universe. The second batch of official stills arrived from MBC today showing Kang Chi raising a ruckus and fighting his way out of trouble. Or more likely fighting his way into trouble and then needing to fight his way right out of it. Seeing Lee Seung Gi in sageuk garb doing an action scene seriously gives me flashbacks to My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. This drama could be one elaborate fantasy of Dae Woong’s that he’s the stunt actor picked to play the part of a half-man/half-beast seeking the power of a legendary book to become fully human. I half expect Mi Ho (or Shin Mina) to guest star in GFB just as an inside joke. That would actually be epic, and MBC could make it happen since Shin Mina’s last drama Arang and the Magistrate aired on that network. It’s funny how dramas sometimes collide in the weirdest ways, mostly due to me remembering too many details from past dramas I really ought to have forgotten. This drama looks very action-oriented, from the glimpses of Kang Chi’s mythical father protecting his mother, to Kang Chi tussling with thugs, to his lady love Yeol Wool wielding a sword. I hope the drama found a good action choreographer (where is the Action School crew when you need them?) because this could easily devolve into the farcical. Seeing these stills of Seung Gi filming convince me that he’s totally stoked by this opportunity and will give it his all (as he always does), so I hope all the ducks align and the end product is something worth savoring.
