This is one of those casting reports I hope becomes true later on even if it’s still up in the air right now. K-ent is reporting that Lee Seung Gi is going straight from filming tvN fantasy drama Hwayugi into filming another drama airing later this year called Vagabond (or Drifter). After news broke Lee Seung Gi’s agency confirmed that he did get the offer for this drama but it was before he accepted Hwayugi and he had to pass because of that. Vagabond is a big budget thriller about an ordinary man who due to external circumstances exposes national corruption and ends up embroiled in political intrigue, with a long three months overseas shoot to begin in March with the drama likely to be scooped up by SBS. The PD did Giant, You’re All Surrounded and Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim, with the screenwriter of Giant, History of the Salaryman, and Empress Ki penning the script. I’m only sticking with Hwayugi since there is four episodes left and I’ve come this far for Lee Seung Gi, it may be better for him to do Vagabond with this solid production team and deliver a drama worthy of him in 2018.
