[NEWS] Lee Kwang Soo Cast in ‘Goddess of Fire Jeongi’ as a Villain
According to King Kong Entertainment on May 7, Lee Kwang Soo will be taking the role of the bad-tempered Im Hae, the older brother of Gwang Hae. With Im Hae having an inferiority complex towards his younger brother, Lee Kwang Soo will act as a villain towards actor Lee Sang Yoon, who will play Gwang Hae.
“I have faith in writer Kwon Soon Kyu, who wrote SBS’ Warrior Baek Dong Soo and Park Sung Soo PD, who directed MBC’s Do As You Want,” said Lee Kwang Soo. “I was especially touched while watching Do As You Want, so it’s an honor to be part of Park Sung Soo PD’s projects.”
On being a villain, Lee Kwang Soo said he always wanted to be an antagonist and took the challenge when the offer came to him. He promised to prepare carefully to show a never-before-seen character.
Goddess of Fire Jeongi will follow after Gu Family Book in July.
[NEWS] Lee Kwang Soo Says He Wants Song Ji Hyo in a Role That Makes Her Like Him
One of the questions he was asked during the equally bright interview was whether he had an actress he would like to co-star with. To this question, he answered that he would like to act with fellow Running Man member Song Ji Hyo.
“I′m a rich boy, and [Song] Ji Hyo nuna (big sister) works at my house,” he imagined. “She likes me, but I don′t like her and I keep on treating her coldly. It′s not that I′m a bad guy; it′s just that Ji Hyo nuna isn′t my type.”
When asked to send a video message to Song Ji Hyo, Lee Kwang Soo said, “If you ever come to see this broadcast, you will probably get mad at me. You′ll grab my hair or kick me… I′m just joking. I was trying to be funny.”
He added, however, that “if we get the chance it would be great if we tried out such roles.”
Lee Kwang Soo and Song Ji Hyo have been appearing in SBS′ Running Man together. The two also previously teamed up as voice actors for the full-length animation Maritime Police Marco.
