When news broke shortly before tvN‘s fantasy drama Hwayugi finished airing that Lee Seung Gi was already in talks for another drama, his agency claimed that the offer was received prior to Lee Seung Gi doing Hwayugi and was simply another option on the table. Now it’s confirmed that said drama Vagabond will indeed be Lee Seung Gi’s next drama, and he’s also got the first confirmed costar in Shin Sung Rok. The optimistic side of this drama confirmation is that Lee Seung Gi will be working with the production team of Giant, with the PD also directed him in You’re All Surrounded, and of course the screenwriter of Giant also wrote the hits History of the Salaryman and Empress Ki. The drama is about an average man finding himself in extraordinary circumstances surrounded by a massive corruption he has to battle. It will be fully pre-produced and has been picked up by SBS for later in 2018 airing.
