Lee Min Jung Wants Lee Seung Gi on ‘Big’
Lee Min Jung wants Lee Seung Gi in her drama. As the lead actress of KBS2’s Big, Lee Min Jung tried to ask Lee Seung Gi to appear as a cameo in the drama.
In an interview with KBS2’s Entertainment Weekly aired on June 2, Lee Min Jung said cutely to a question asking who she wants as a cameo, “I hope Lee Seung Gi will appear in our drama.”
Although it seems implausible at first, her wish may not be as out of reach as it seems.
The main reason Lee Seung Gi may show up on the drama is because Big is by the Hong Sisters. Lee Seung Gi starred in the Hong Sisters’ SBS drama My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, and actually appeared as a cameo in the Sisters’ follow-up piece, MBC’s The Greatest Love.
His role at the time was the ‘little Dokko Jin’, MC of the variety show ‘Strongest Heart’.
When Dokko Jin (Cha Seung Won) said, “If you let Gu Ae Jung appear as a guest on your show, I’ll never touch your refrigerator commercials,” he answered boldly, “Hey, I’m Lee Seung Gi. Refrigerators are mine.”
They continued to fight a war of nerves with each other, but when people came close after recognizing them as celebrities, they turned around and flashed smiles as if nothing had happened.
As such, Lee Seung Gi may as well be making an appearance on Big.
The only problem is that his cameo appearance in The Greatest Love had been confirmed before the drama started shooting, but for Big, the love call came suddenly.
But considering how Lee Seung Gi is close not only with the Hong Sisters but also Lee Min Jung, thanks to commercial shoots, the wish still isn’t too far-fetched. Lee Seung Gi’s ultra-busy schedule seems to be the only thing standing in the way.
KBS2’s Big is gathering attention as the Hong Sisters’ comeback piece, and is a romcom about a perfect man with a teenage soul and his awkward schoolteacher fiancée.
The drama will air its first episode on June 4 starring Gong Yoo, Lee Min Jung and Suzy.
