Drama casting is never over until the proverbial fat lady sings and confirmations ring out, so the rumored casting of Park Shin Hye in the Lee Jun Ki upcoming period drama Joseon Gunman is no more. I adore her but she’s still you and I’m sure she’ll get a chance to work with Jun Ki somewhere down the line. The more I read about Joseon Gunman the more excited I am about it so I really want a leading lady that I love to pieces. The drama gods have answered my call in a BIG way, and I mean BIG BIG WAY. KBS is currently in discussions with Nam Sang Mi to be Jun Ki’s leading lady and the moment I heard that I started screaming “Soo Hyun and Ji Woo!!!!” I am proud to admit that Lee Jun Ki and Nam Sang Mi make up one of my personal all-time fave OTP onscreen pairings ever and she is actually my favorite leading lady of Jun Ki’s over all his dramas and movies. If she does sign on (and all signs point to yes), she would also be the first repeat leading lady in Lee Jun Ki’s repertoire. I don’t think I can find a gif meme out there that quite captures how ecstatic I am right now. Joseon Gunman is airing on Wed-Thurs starting in June after Golden Cross wraps up and its been seven years since they did TBDAW on MBC and both have had really fantastic acting careers and I can’t wait to see how their amazing chemistry is like after both have matured. Joseon Gunman comes from the production team behind The Princess’s Man and is about a swordsman in the late Joseon period who loses his father and younger sister so takes up a gun to avenge their deaths and becomes Joseon’s first gunman. If Nam Sang Mi joins lee Jun Ki here, that will firm up the main four to also include Han Joo Wan and Jeon Hye Bin.
I may or may not have wasted hours watching TBDAW MVs. It can’t be helped, in addition to the perfect OTP in the drama, it also gave the world an amazing bromance between Jun Ki and Jung Kyung Ho.
