Could Kim Soo Hyun Play “Dark” Wol Ryung in “Gu Family Book”?

Kim Soo Hyun has been picked as the number one actor that would have suited the “Dark” Wol Ryung role in the recently completed MBC drama, “Gu Family Book.”

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.

Choi Jin Hyuk is and was the absolute best for the role of Wol Ryung - light, dark, and everywhere inbetween.

His voice, his stature, his face are perfect for the role.  He made it his own, and no one will fill those shoes.  His previous roles were ok, but this one put him on everyone's radar and showed us a glimpse of what he is capable of.

Although Kim Soo Hyun is my favorite actor, I am very glad they casted Choi Jin Hyuk in this role. The Wol Ryung character really gave him an opportunity to show the world his versatile acting ability. Choi Jin Hyuk was brilliant in this role. Daddy Gu will always be Choi Jin Hyuk for me.

Choi JH is Wol Ryung and Wol Ryung is Choi JH. This role is totally perfect for him. His deep voice & looks are match made in heaven. He looks so dark and cool as WolRyung. Although I do like Kim Soo Hyun, this role is not for him.

Even if they had a season 2, why would he need to play dark Wol Ryung? He wasn't evil anymore at the end. The darkness left him.
