Lee Seung Gi and Bae Suzy have been confirmed for the lead roles in MBC ‘Gu Family Book’.

‘Gu Family Book’ is filled with the adventures of Choi Kang Chi who was born as a half-human-half-beast but tries to become a human. In the drama, Lee Seung Gi plays Choi Kang Chi who was born to Gu Wol Ryung, the guardian spirit of Jiri Mountain, and Seo Hwa, his human mother. Kang Chi is an outspoken character who’s full of curiosity. He realizes that he’s a half-human-half-beast through a certain incident and starts living his 2nd life.

Bae Suzy plays the role of Dam Yeo Wool who is a master of martial arts and archery. Yeo Wool is an upright character who really values the Three Bonds and Five Relationships in Confucianism, and becomes an instructor at a martial arts center at a young age.

i'm still side eyeing and face palming over the fact that jype took so long to confirm when every single other media form was saying, especially since they deiced to confirm it just a couple days before pre-production starts and suzy has to go training for archery & martial arts. and excuse me while i keep rolling my eyes thanks to the overzealous LSG fans, I hope suzy makes out a lot with their oppa.
MODS: i edited the post just to add the twitter print screen that i forgot before.

how popular is suzy in korea and how did her popularity rise? /newbie
lysblack 31st-Jan-2013 03:26 am (UTC)
she is the it girl in korea right now, for example she just snatched a cf from soshi (i'm using this as an example because of your sunny icon XD).

during miss a's debut she was the least popular member, until she acted in dream high, which got her name out there and people liked her looks, from there on her popularity started to grow little by little, however after the movie 'introduction to architecture' she became the nation's first love and her popularity skyrocked. for example, from 2010 to 2011 she had around 7 or 8 cf deals with miss a, in 2012 alone she got herself 18+ solo cfs.

JYP media play let be real.
lysblack 31st-Jan-2013 05:16 pm (UTC)
Dude, no media play gets a person to that status and keep her there.

I think suzy and seunggi are going to cute as hell and potentially really hot together!!

unfortunately this is a major network aka no making out probably, but hopefully we can get a decent kiss scene.

aleexnews 31st-Jan-2013 04:28 am (UTC)
ugh probably wont watch this cause of her. ily seunggi but i cant stand bad acting, especially not from a lead. plus this plot sounds really dumb, he should've picked a different project, King2Hearts was so good too.

hi ^^
lysblack 31st-Jan-2013 06:54 pm (UTC)
you may not believe it, but while i disagree with you in many things, i actually like you.

mte. Casting an idol (especially the current "it-girl") as the lead is just a security net to make sure they don't get low ratings. They cant have much faith in the drama itself.
lysblack 31st-Jan-2013 06:55 pm (UTC)
not really, no matter how popular an idol can be it doesn't equal ratings at all, but it does it make it easier to sell overseas.
missnothings 31st-Jan-2013 09:01 pm (UTC)
this exactly. See: To the Beautiful You.
togu 31st-Jan-2013 09:56 pm (UTC)
maybe you're right. i was only thinking about her stans who will watch this show no matter how bad the drama/acting is. But I guess her antis will stay far away from this drama and they will cancel each other out. (and im still not a fan of her acting, so that might scare others off as well)

i heard a lot about Dream High in here but i was very disappointed when i checked it out so that's scared me off from watching dramas with idol leads.

I love suzy but let be honest she's not a very good actress.
So, I'm kind of worried, I hope she does well but I'm not sure.
If she's still bad, she will gain so many anti (and she already has a lot of anti in korea).
