FTISLAND’s Lee Hong Ki will be playing the role of Jeo Pal Gye, the “superstar demon who steals women’s hearts with his magical powers.” The character is an A-list celebrity under Lucifer Entertainment, the agency run by Woo Hwi Chul, and goes by the stage name P.K. He is both a lovable prankster and a seductive charmer, and his sly gaze in his poster hints at both characteristics.
In the poster, the actor sports an eye-catching hair color and a trendy look befitting a famous celebrity. He also holds a framed photo of a pig that represents his hidden identity as a pig demon.
Last but not least, Jang Gwang will play the character of Sa Oh Jung, “the chairman of the No. 1 company in the financial world, who is devoted to serving Oh Gong.” Amusingly, in spite of his appearance, Sa Oh Jung actually turns out to be the “youngest demon.” The actor smiles good-naturedly in his poster as he comically dusts a statue, highlighting his role as Son Oh Gong’s attendant.
The producers of the drama commented, “Not only did we try to show the charms of each of the five main characters of ‘Hwayugi,’ but we also decided to add framed photos that symbolized each character, so that [the viewers] could better understand them.”
“Hwayugi” will be airing its first episode on December 23 at 9 p.m. KST.
