On July 3, MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Scholar Who Walks the Night” released photos of Gwi, a vampire who lives under the palace. Gwi resides underneath the palace and manipulates royalty. He is absolutely evil and the strongest vampire who feeds on humans.
In the stills, Gwi is pictured in his secret lair. The strength of his character can be seen through his charismatic acting and his abs that are visible between his robes. His smile that seems to imply he enjoys threatening others is sure to send a chill down your back.
The staff said, “In a recent filming, Lee Soo Hyuk accepted the request to bare his upper body and participated passionately in the shoot to transform into the ‘absolute evil’ vampire Gwi. Through Lee Soo Hyuk’s passion and hard work, Gwi became a legendary ‘super sexy vampire’ character.” Then they asked viewers, “Please watch the first broadcast with Gwi who is the magical antagonist with lots of expectation and interest.”
Meanwhile, “Scholar Who Walks the Night” is a fantasy melodrama revolving around the vampire scholar Kim Sung Yeol (played by Lee Jun Ki). It is set to air its first episode on July 8.
