It’s nonstop working for Lee Seung Gi and I can’t complain if it means I get to see more of him in various settings. He wrapped the SBS drama You’re All Surrounded last month in mid-July, a project that shoulda coulda been better if it had a competent screenwriter at the helm. It was such a waste of the entire cast but especially Lee Seung Gi and Cha Seung Won. That’s two disappointing dramas in a row that Lee Seung Gi has picked but I don’t think he chose wrong since both YAAS and Gu Family Book sounded promising on paper. He was in Los Angeles last weekend to attend KCON 2014 and pop up here and there around the venue including making a short introductory speech on stage before Saturday night’s concert. The organizers so went out of their way not to pair up Seung Gi with his real life girlfriend Yoona‘s appearance on Sunday night with SNSD.
He must be exhausted from all the working and traveling because he looked wan at the prayer ceremony a few days ago for his upcoming rom-com movie Today’s Love with Moon Chae Won. Hopefully the filming schedule for the movie is less arduous than the live drama shoots because I want the two leads to look their best and get the happy ending their characters didn’t get in Shining Inheritance/Brilliant Legacy. In addition to Lee Seung Gi playing a beta-male teacher and Moon Chae Won as a go-getter TV weather forecaster, the rest of the cast will include Jung Joon Young (who also performed at KCON and seems chummy with Seung Gi in the picks below), Yoo Hwayoung formerly of T-ara, and Lizzy of After School. There are also still unconfirmed reports that Lee Seo Jin will be making a cameo appearance in the movie as the sunbae that Moon Chae Won’s character has a crush on. Awwww, I love the meta and for now I’ll always welcome more Lee Seo Jin/Lee Seung Gi opportunities to work together even in a cameo capacity.
