To modernize and move across a cultural border the famed Monkey King character from the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West is an ambitious feat but somehow fitting that the K-drama screenwriting Hong Sisters are the ones to tackle it. Their upcoming tvN drama Hwayugi (A Korean Odyssey) has so far only released moody teasers of the three leads Lee Seung Gi, Oh Yeon Seo, and Cha Seung Won but that’s only whetting my appetite for more. I knew Lee Seung Gi would confirm this drama since he has success with the sisters in My Girlfriend is a Gumiho plus this drama is the one of the few high profile ones in the works. The first official drama still is out showcasing the full of confidence and attitude Song Oh Gong, complete with DJ Dhalid style fur coat and a smirk in his eye. He’s standing in an enclosed hothouse of sorts which makes me wonder if he’s checking out his minion monkeys hanging out in an indoor arboretum.
