Lee Seung Gi Soldiers Up for ‘The King 2Hearts’
Four still cuts of Lee Seung Gi from the set of upcoming MBC’s The King 2Hearts have been released ahead of the drama’s premiere.
Lee showed up on set for the drama’s filming on February 1 with a new, short hairstyle and suit up in a military uniform to shoot the scenes. He is said to have appeared nervous on set; however, as soon as the cameras began rolling, Lee had no problem getting into character, highlighting his natural acting abilities.
The actor has been cast to play Lee Jae Ha, a crown prince with playboy tendencies, and the tall, lean Lee fills out the soldier’s uniform well, while also proving he’s perfectly fit for the princely role with his handsome looks and charming smile in the photos.
A representative from Kim Jong Hak Production said, “Lee Seung Gi is displaying his enthusiasm for the prince Lee Jae Ha role and is holding nothing back in portraying the sly character.”
The rep continued, “He’s also the one setting the mood on set with his signature sense of humor. Anticipate a transformation that shows a completely different, never-before-seen side to Lee Seung Gi.”
Lee star alongside actress Ha Ji Won, who plays a North Korean princess and the actor’s love interest.
The drama is set to premiere on March 14 and take over the timeslot of MBC drama The Sun and the Moon.
