Lee Seung-gi to play Ha Ji-won’s King?

Dude, what’s with this drama and its inability to confirm a cast? Upcoming MBC drama The King starring Ha Ji-won (supposedly, since that’s yet to be confirmed too) has now reportedly jumped its leading man ship to Lee Seung-gi (My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho). Am I allowed to be excited? Because I would be, but I’m not sure if I’m just going to get slapped in the face with a denial. That said, you KNOW I’m all over this if Seung-gi’s up for the lead.

The King is the highly anticipated drama about a contemporary Korean monarchy, that decides for some reason to arrange a marriage between its king and a North Korean intelligence agent, played by Ha Ji-won. There pretty much isn’t a hallyu star’s name thathasn’t been named as the possible king, from Lee Byung-heon to Jo In-sung and Cha Seung-won, and now Lee Seung-gi. It’s certainly not the first time Seung-gi and Cha Seung-won have been up for the same role either, which I find funny because they’re not the same type at all.

Behind the scenes is Beethoven Virus‘s team: PD Lee Jae-kyu and writers Hong Jin-ah and Hong Ja-ram. The drama is described as a romantic comedy, and little other information has been given other than the premise. I just hope it does something original and gives some verisimilitude to the contemporary monarchy thing. I think there are a great number of interesting ways to portray a modern king, and at least the premise of mixing the spy world with the fantasy royal family is promising as a start. I’d love to see Ha Ji-won and Lee Seung-gi together in a rom-com, so my chips, they lie here.

If this drama ever gets cast, it’ll air in March on MBC on Wednesdays and Thursdays, following The Moon That Embraces the Sun.
