Hhhhmmm, this is rather odd non-casting news. Earlier this week it was announced that K-actor Son Seok Gu was in talks to join the cast of upcoming Kim Eun Seok penned drama The King: Eternal Sovereign. He was up for what I call the protector type supporting male lead role, as a cop in one of the two parallel universes. I thought this was a lock and he’s a great choice thanks to being so versatile and charismatic. Sadly days later he’s turned down the role so it’s up to the production to find another smexy tall talented supporting male lead to join Lee Min Ho, Kim Go Eun, and Woo Do Hwan.
