Seoul, Korea – Lee Seung Gi joined hands with the Hong sisters’ writing team – Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran, who are popular, trendy scriptwriters. They have been working together on such hit dramas as The Perfect Couple and You’re Beautiful.
Lee Seung Gi is coming back with the Hong sisters’ new script, My Girlfriend Is a Nine-tailed Fox, after his last drama SBS’s Brilliant Legacy, which aired last July.
This new drama series is a fantasy melodrama in which the male lead meets a gumiho, literally a ‘nine-tailed fox’ who in legend is said to transform itself into a seductress, and falls in love with the her. The Hong sisters say that the main male character, played by Lee Seung Gi, is the most immature person ever to appear in one of their dramas. This character is a man who cannot help falling in love with the nine-tailed fox even though he is afraid that she may steal his organ.
Because such a talented actor as Lee Seung Gi, who gained great popularity in Brilliant Legacy with 40 percent of the viewing audience, has teamed up with the Hong Sisters, who have created a huge fan base, there are high expectations for this new project even before the actual shooting begins.
The new drama is currently looking for a female lead, and after they have cast the lead actress, they will begin shooting in May and plan to air in the summer.
