*Incoherent spazz attack* Ever since it was announced late last year that Lee Seung Gi was doing the fusion sageuk Gu Family Book, I’ve been in waiting mode to unleash all my pent up excitement at seeing my baby boy taking his acting challenge one step further and tackling a sageuk. I’m glad he chose a fusion and is playing a character with a fantasy bent. The Joseon nobleman and/or royalty is pretty played out, not to mention the equivalent of a button-down look if he were to play a yangban seems a tad too boring for his dimpled cuteness. I’ve been anxious to see how the drama would style him for the role of half-man/half-beast Kang Chil, and lo and behold, our first look is here! Hurray and thank the drama lords – it couldn’t have come a day sooner since I’ve been down in the dumps with no K-dramas currently hooking my attention, and Lee Seung Gi is good enough to singlehandedly resurrect my flagging enthusiasm. With these stills, suffice to say GFB has now shot up to number 1 most anticipated of the April dramas for me. I’ve got another business trip to Asia next week which will burn through the rest of March easily and by the time I return to a normal work/life schedule this baby will have arrived on my proverbial front porch. How cute does he look, with the half-pony tail and the red, brown, and black warrior ensemble? I hope Suzy is bringing her A game cuz I’m pretty sure this boy will be. The drama has been filming for the past month already but the two leads Seung Gi and Suzy only arrived on set last week. That leaves me assuming that the parents generation section will be at least a few episodes and there might even be a childhood portion as well. The complete cast of youngsters now includes Lee Yoo Bi as Seung Gi’s first love, Sung Joon as Suzy’s bodyguard and has a crush on her, and Yoo Yeon Suk as the antagonist. That’s all good and fine, but would anyone blame me if I said I only had eyes for Lee Seung Gi?
