The appearance of Lee Yeon, who gets trapped in the 1938 era, Ryu Hong Joo, Lee Rang and Cheon Moo Young, released in previous teaser videos and posters aroused keen interest. In the meantime, the third teaser video caught the eyes of fans and stimulate anticipation with the uneasy reunion of Yeon-Rang brothers. In 1938, Lee Rang shows up with long hair and rebellious eyes. Soon after, he encounters Lee Yeon’s rough scolding, “Stop smoking, you brat”. The brothers do not hesitate to engage in a gunfight as soon as they reunite, recalling their love-hate relationship before making up. However, Lee Yeon’s sudden question, “If the past changes, will the future be different?”, makes fans feel sad thinking about the story between the two brothers. It is because Lee Yeon knows about the “past future” where Lee Rang risked his life to protect his brother.
However, the more Lee Yeon cherishes his younger brother, the more dangerous Lee Rang becomes. Former western mountain god Ryu Hong Joo and former northern mountain god Cheon Mu Young, who are as powerful as Lee Yeon, then begin to strangle the brothers. Attention is focused on how Lee Yeon will counterattack in the intense fight where challenges like “Try to save him if you can” and warnings like “You will see everyone you cherish dying” keep pouring out. Viewers are looking forward to Lee Yeon’s hunt to protect his people and seeing whether he can keep his principle that “a fox pays back both kindness and revenge” this time.
