Fans are super excited after hearing news about hallyu actor Gong Yoo possible next project, the actor has been away from the limelight for a while after the huge success of “Goblin,” the drama aired in late 2016 and ended in January 2017.
The actor had previously stated in interviews that his possible next project would be a film not a drama since that’s where his heart truly is, and it has been revealed that he was offered the leading role in the upcoming film “Seo Bok.”
The actor’s agency said in an official statement,
“He is currently reviewing the offer positively.”
The film will be a modern reinterpretation of the classic legend of Seo Bok, a courtier who served China’s first emperor Qin Shi Huang; the Qin Dynasty ruler was famous for wanting to achieve mortality.
Seo Bok set on an impossible journey to find the elixir of life, Seo Bok is said to have never returned from his journey.
Park Bo Gum was first offered the leading role but had declined. The film is attracting lots of attention for being director Lee Yong Joo’s comeback project. The director had previously worked on 2012’s “Architecture 101.”
What do you think of the possible casting offer? Would you like to see him come back with a drama or a film?
Although I am not as excited as I would’ve been if it was a drama, I kinda expected that since he had previously stated he loves films more.
A modern adaptation of this story sounds really interesting, I wonder how they would spin it, it would be a lot of fun to see that.
I can’t wait to see him in whatever project he picks, it won’t be before 2019 but I don’t mind waiting~
