This is Lee Seung Gi’s first trial at historical fictional drama. He will play the role of Choi Gang Chi, a half-man, half-beast with aggressive and daring personality. The revealed photos show Lee Seung Gi is wearing a dark brown hanbok and flaunting his new long hairdo, which he put up in a small pony tail. His innocent and almost childish-looking, sparkling eyes and warm smile bring out the inner Choi Gang Chi in him.
During his first filming session on March 14, Lee Seung Gi took a long time to perfect his transformation to a half-beast and half-man and discussed about the drama and its cinematography with producer Shin Woo Cheol for quite a while. He was very eager and involved as he monitored his own acting with the producer after each and every shoot and could not let go of the script from his hands throughout the filming session
Lee Seung Gi commented after the first filming session, “It is such an honor to work with writer Kang Eung Kyung and producer Shin Woo Cheol. I’m getting good vibes from people I’m acting with, too. I am very excited for this drama. Since this is my first time doing sageuk, I’m paying special attention to details. Right now, I’m practicing my dictation. I want to perfect the drama to meet my fans and viewers’ expectations.”
Meanwhile, “Book of the House of Gu” is of historical fiction and action genre, portraying the story of Choi Gang Chi, who was born a half-man and half-beast but wants to be a complete human.
