Gu Family Book

I love the leads but the writer just turns me off. I’ll be keeping tabs on this. If I hear good reviews, I might decide to watch this. 

Fantasy sageuk Gu Family Book is a twist on the gumiho legend with the hero being a half-gumiho, half-human hero. The story is about the trouble Choi Kang Chi goes through in order to become human and the struggle in order to live more like a human than anyone else despite not being able to become human.

Directing is PD Shin Woo-chul, of Secret Garden and A Gentleman’s Dignity, and writing is Kang Eun-kyung of Baker King, Man of Honor, and Dalja’s SpringGu Family Book premieres on April 8 and follows Horse Healer on MBC.

But later she’ll come to her senses and become a rival to Suzy’s character for Kang-chi’s affections.
