After we got the stills of adorable Lee Seung Gi in his very first sageuk look for the fantasy drama Gu Family Book, here are the stills featuring our heroine Suzy, who looks charming as well. She is playing the role of Dam Yeo Wool, a daughter of a martial arts teacher. She herself is well-trained in it, along with bow and arrow. I’m liking the fact that our heroine is a brave and smart warrior, with a badass attitude. Her father in the drama is Jo Sung Ha (Sungkyunkwan Scandal), also featured in the pictures. Lee Seung Gi is looking so happy doing those action scenes. LOL. Hey, he also did the wannabe action hero role in My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho. The drama is giving me some feel good vibes, which is totally welcomed as I like happy dramas 🙂
Lee Seung Gi plays Choi Kang Chi, a half human, half gumiho; who wants to become human desperately. Gu Family Book is the title as the drama is about a legend that says: a hundreds of years old book contains the secret of how to become a human. But no one knows if it exists in reality or if it’s just a made up story. So, our hero will go in search of that book, and that will mark the progression of the story. I was wondering that we had been given character descriptions, but nothing about the plot. I’m glad that the story sounds really intriguing and full of some supernatural elements and magic and thrills and so on.
Gu Family Book starts airing from April 8 on MBC and will have a total of 24 episodes with a Monday-Tuesday slot. The PD is Shin Woo Chul who has dramas like Secret Garden, City Hall under his filmography, the writer being Kang Eun Kyung who has written shows like Dalja’s Spring and Baker King.
