SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday cop drama “You’re All Surrounded” has confirmed its two male leads, Cha Seung Won and Lee Seung Gi. Actress Go Ara was previously offered the female lead role, and she is purportedly in the middle of arranging her schedule.
Multiple broadcasting representatives have stated that “Cha Seung Won, Lee Seung Gi and Go Ara received casting offers and all three recently decided to do the drama.” Representatives have called it a “dream casting.”
However, the drama’s production company, HB Entertainment, stated that only Lee Seung Gi and Cha Seung Won have confirmed their appearances in the drama. “We are in the final stages of casting for ‘You’re All Surrounded.’ Lee Seung Gi, Cha Seung Won have confirmed their appearance, while Go Ara is arranging her schedule.”
“You’re All Surrounded” is a cop drama revolving four rookie cops in their 20s who did not have any dreams of becoming detectives, and how they develop into true cops.
Cha Seung Won plays strong team leader Seo Pan Suk, who enables the rookie cops to develop and grow. This is Cha Seung Won’s first drama appearance in three years, since MBC’s “Best Love” in 2011.
In the role of bright and good-looking rookie cop Eun Dae Gu (with an IQ of 150), Lee Seung Gi plays a character who is also described as foul-mouthed and blunt, with a painful family history. He will be returning to dramaland a year after acting in MBC’s “Gu Family Book.”
Go Ara won critical praise for her role as Sung Na Jung in tvN’s “Reply 1994,” and if she confirms her appearance, she will play female detective Eo Soo Sun, who passes the police officer exam on her fifth try.
“You’re All Surrounded” will be written by Lee Jung Sun (“Ojakgyo Brothers”) and directed by Yoo In Sik (“Incarnation of Money,” “Giant”). The drama will follow after “Three Days” on SBS and is likely to premiere at the beginning of May. The production will begin filming once casting has been completed.
