Lee Seung Gi Perfectly Pulls Off His Own Stunts For Action-Packed Chase In “Vagabond”
SBS’s upcoming drama “Vagabond” has shared new action-packed stills of Lee Seung Gi!
“Vagabond” will tell the story of a man who is involved in the crash of a plane who tries to uncover hidden secrets and ends up finding a giant national corruption scandal. It will be an action-packed melodrama that follows vagabonds who have lost their families, affiliations, and even names as they embark on a dangerous journey.
Lee Seung Gi plays the role of Cha Dal Gun, a stuntman who dreamed of making his mark in the action film industry but then loses himself in trying to uncover secrets of a plane crash that resulted in the loss of his nephew. He not only specializes in 18 forms of martial arts, but he is overflowing with confidence and is ready to face anything head-to-head to get what he wants.
The new stills show Lee Seung Gi engaging in a fierce chase scene that involves him holding on to the roof of a car for dear life, running through the streets, and engaging in a fist fight where he gets choked by his opponent. He is said to have done most of his own action scenes, which required wires and complicated chase sequences. Lee Seung Gi is said to have mastered many stunts that even professional stunt doubles sometimes have difficulties with, and his preparation to build up his strength before filming started paid off as he was able to take on his stunts fluidly.
Lee Seung Gi is said to have put great care into ensuring that his scenes were perfect, rehearsing his moves repeatedly before cameras started rolling and immediately rushing over to monitor his work when cameras stopped filming. The production company stated, “Amazing scenes were created that only Lee Seung Gi could pull off. We’re confident that viewers will not be able to take their eyes off the screen for a single minute as they see Lee Seung Gi’s true potential and talents as an action star.”
