Lee Seung-gi and Suzy have been cast in the upcoming drama “Vagabond” as a stuntman and a secret agent respectively, reuniting the Joseon-era lovebirds from the drama “Gu Family Book.”
The new drama, which commenced production Saturday with a read-through by the cast, revolves around an action star-wannabe, Cha-gun, who gets involved in a grand conspiracy after a plane crash.
Suzy -- whose full name is Bae Suzy -- plays Go Hae-ri, an official of the National Intelligence Service who chose the life of a civil servant to support her family but ends up becoming a covert operative.
