Lee Dong-wook, who will collaborate with Kim So-yeon in “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 2”, shares, “I’m happy to appear in this work again…”
Lee Dong-wook, Kim So-yeon, Kim Bum and Ryu Kyung-soo will make a new season for “Tale of the Nine-Tailed”.
tvN’s drama “Tale of the Nine-Tailed”, which was greatly loved by the viewers by showing the essence of the K-fantasy genre, will return with the new season “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938”. It is expected that the action play by Lee Yeon (Lee Dong-wook), a gumiho who jumped into the chaotic era of 1938, will bring more fun to the viewers than season 1.
“Tale of the Nine-Tailed” will return with dynamic action scenes and more diverse characters in the story based on the original worldview centering around native gods and monsters. Above all, keen attention is also being paid to the reunion of director Kang Shin-hyo and screenwriter Han Woo-ri, who have shown their power in creating well-made works with complex genres.
In addition, the teaming up of Lee Dong-wook, Kim So-yeon, Kim Bum and Ryu Kyung-soo stimulates excitement. Lee Dong-wook will continue to appear in the drama with the character “Gumiho” Lee Yeon, who has unrivaled charms. Lee Yeon, who had a happy ending with his “eternal first love” Nam Ji-ah in the previous season, is suddenly summoned to 1938 when being caught up in an unexpected incident. What awaits Lee Yeon there, and Lee Yeon’s struggles to return to the present day with his precious person will be unfolded dynamically.
Lee Dong-wook has played many charismatic and romantic characters. In the second season, he will lead the worldview of “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” with more diverse and solid stories. Regarding the new project, Lee Dong-wook expressed his excitement, saying, “I’m happy to appear in ‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed’ again”, adding, “I will enjoy the time working with great staff and excellent actors. Please look forward to the drama”.
Since the timeline has changed and many new faces will appear, the viewers are raising high expectations. Kim So-yeon, who has irreplaceable charms, will take on the role of Ryu Hong-ju, a former god of mountains in the West who is now the owner of the best restaurant in Gyeongseong. When Lee Yeon, whom she wanted to have from the first moment they met but couldn’t, reappears in front of her eyes, her boring daily life becomes more colorful and cheerful. The dangerous presence of Ryu Hong-ju raises the tension of the story.
Kim So-yeon has proved her true value as a “trustworthy actress” with her unlimited acting spectrum through different works. Fans are looking forward to seeing her new transformation in this fantasy-action genre. Kim So-yeon shared, “I feel so grateful that I can join and be with everyone in the new season. I will work hard to portray the attractive character Ryu Jong-ju”.
Kim Bum also heralds a pleasant comeback with the role of Lee Rang. Lee Rang resolved his misunderstandings with Lee Yeon in the previous season and sacrificed. However, facing the appearance of Lee Yeon in 1938, Lee Rang was still rebellious. With changes in time, the intense fights between the two brothers will be seen once again.
The story of Lee Yeon and Lee Rang is another important point that attracts the viewers. The chemistry between Lee Dong-wook and Kim Bum, who portray the ever-changing relationship of Yeon-Rang brothers when reuniting in the past before solving their misunderstands, is expected to shine even more in the new season. Kim Bum confessed, “Following season 1 that I worked with all my heart, I’m really happy to be with everyone again. Please look forward to the upcoming season ‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938’ and Lee Rang”.
Ryu Kyung-soo will join the drama as Cheon Moo-young, a famous figure who saves the dead. He is a former god of mountains in the North and was once the ‘only friend’ of Lee Yeon and Hong-ju. However, he begins to hate Lee Yeon due to some kind of incident and enters an inevitable fight with his old friend.
Actor Ryu Kyung-soo, who has proved his unique acting color, will make a different transformation through “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938”. He said, “I’m really excited to be with everyone in such an interesting world”, adding, “The character Cheon Moo-young is a very three-dimensional character, so I think this will be a difficult and huge challenge for me. I will do my best to show the best performance”, stimulating expectations.
Meanwhile, “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” is scheduled to air in 2023.
