According to Hankook Ilbo, in a questionaire performed through an unnamed mobile search app, the question of which actor would look better with Lee Yeon Hee or Yoon Se Ah as “Dark” Wol Ryung was asked, and out of 500 answers, Kim Soo Hyun was number one with 36.2%.
Wol Ryung was the animal spirit “gumiho” character in the MBC drama “Gu Family Book,” played by actor Choi Jin Hyuk. He won over many fans and saw rising popularity with his striking performance in the role.
While in the beginning of the drama, Wol Ryung was a sweet and harmless character, due to a betrayal by his loved one, he turned into a thousand-year demon, becoming the deadly and feared “Dark” Wol Ryung.
It seems Kim Soo Hyun was picked as suitable for the dark version of Wol Ryung due to his recent charismatic role in the hit movie “Secretly and Greatly” and the dark turn for his Sam Dong character in the KBS drama “Dream High.”
