Lee Seung Gi And Suzy’s Spy Drama “Vagabond” Delayed To September
The premiere date for Lee Seung Gi and Suzy’s upcoming spy drama “Vagabond” has been pushed back. A source stated to Sports Chosun that the delay is due to issues with the filming schedule and a pending deal with Netflix.
“Vagabond” had been scheduled to air in May after the conclusion of SBS’s “Big Issue,” but has been replaced with “Absolute Boyfriend,” a drama adaptation of the popular Japanese manga series of the same name. “Absolute Boyfriend” stars Yeo Jin Goo, Girl’s Day’s Minah, and Hong Jong Hyun, and has already completed filming.
The premiere date for “Vagabond” is now tentatively set for September. Filming is still ongoing for the drama, which held its first table reading in June last year and had a plan to go on-air first at the end of 2018, and then in May 2019.
“Vagabond” is a 25 billion won (approximately $22 million) production. Lee Seung Gi plays a stuntman who makes it his mission to uncover the truth behind a plane crash, and Suzy is an agent at the National Intelligence Service. The drama is a six-year reunion for the actors, who starred together in MBC’s “Gu Family Book” in 2013.
