This is going to be one hilarious fantasy drama! Oh Yeon-seo (My Sassy Girl) is reportedly offered to star in the new Hong sisters fantasy romance drama Hwayugi opposite Lee Seung-gi (You’re All Surrounded), who is also considering the male lead role.
The fantasy drama will be loosely based from the Chinese classic novel Journey to the West, but with a modern-day Seoul twist. Oh Yeon-seo is considering the role of the story of the heroine, a woman with a monk’s vocation to rid society with evil spirits. She will eventually meet Sun Wukong, the mischievous monkey king who is atoning his sins in the human world. This role will be portrayed by Lee Seung-gi if he accepts.
Cha Seung-won was earlier offered to play the Bull Demon King Woo Hwi-chul, Sun Wukong’s sworn brother, with a possible reunion project with the Hong Sisters.
Hwayugi will be directed by PD Park Hong-kyun (Best Love, Queen Seon-deok)and will air on the Saturday-Sunday slot on tvN in December.
