The actors began shooting earlier this month at Jeju Island, where they filmed the first meeting between their characters Yoon Seo Hwa and Gu Wol Ryun. The two will be playing the parents of Lee Seung Gi’s half human half gumiho character, Choi Kang Chi. As previously reported, Lee Yeon Hee’s special appearance will be short but integral in the development of the story.
“Gu Family Book” is described as a light-hearted martial arts sageuk (historical drama) and will follow Choi Kang Chi’s journey as he strives to become a full human. The drama will premiere on MBC once “Horse Doctor” ends.
