“Lovely Horribly” is the script that won the grand prize at KBS’s miniseries screenwriters contest last year and is a romantic horror comedy that follows the story of a top star and drama screenwriter who share one fate between the two of them, and the strange happenings that occur around them as a result. Park Shi Hoo and Song Ji Hyo have been confirmed as the leading roles.
Lee Gikwang will be playing Sung Joong, a rookie producing director (PD) who holds the key to unlocking the secrets of the drama’s plot. His role is set to be pivotal in increasing the tension in the drama. He stated, “I decided to appear in the drama because the script was so much fun to read, and I was charmed by Sung Joong’s polite, considerate, and sweet personality. I’m excited to be working with such great actors in a great project.”
Lee Gikwang has been making his mark as an actor through productions like “Me Too, Flower!” “Mrs. Cop,” “Monster,” and “Circle,” and it will be interesting to see how much he continues to grow as an actor through the upcoming drama.
