Lee Kwang Soo Cast in ‘Goddess of Fire Jeongi’ as a Villain
Putting away his giraffe gear for a bit, Lee Kwang Soo has been cast in MBC’s upcoming drama, Goddess of Fire Jeongi, starring Kim Bum and Moon Geun Young.
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.
