News about the new MBC drama Goddess of Fire Jeongi continues to get better and better. Not only is Kim Bum considering joining the cast,
but recently it's been reported that Lee Kwang Soo
will play the character of the nasty-tempered Im He who is particularly villainous towards his younger brother Gwang Hae, played by Lee Sang Yoon
. Lee Kwang Soo has expressed excitement over playing a villain, saying he's always wanted to do so, and he looks forward to presenting a side of himself he hasn't presented before.
The actor continued, “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. 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.”
What do you think of this casting choice? Can you imagine Lee Kwang Soo as a villain?
