Lee Dong Wook, Kim So Yeon, Kim Bum, Ryu Kyung Soo, Hwang Hee, and kim yong ji go on a hunt beyond imagination in “the tale of the nine tailed 1938”!
tvn’s new saturday drama “the tale of the nine tailed 1938” released the main poster containing the charisma of six people who will turn 1938 upside down.
‘the tale of a nine tailed 1938’ is a k-fantasy action drama about lee yeon, a nine-tailed fox who made an emergency landing in 1938 in an era of chaos. the second season is back after 3 years with more dynamic action, scale, and colorful characters in an original worldview that exquisitely weaves indigenous gods and native monsters.
the reunion of director kang shin hyo and writer han woo ri, who showed the power of the well-made complex genre, as well as the meeting of trustworthy actors such as lee dong wook, kim so yeon, kim bum, and ryu kyung soo, hwang hee, and kim yong ji are raising the expectations of drama fans.
the main poster released raises expectations with the unusual aura of six people: lee yeon (lee dong wook), ryu hong joo (kim so yeon), lee rang (kim bum), chun moo young (ryu kyung soo), koo shin ju (hwang hee) and seonwoo eun ho (kim yong ji)
the charisma of those who come out of the banquet hall, which has become a mess as if the hunt is over, causes goosebumps. the phrase ‘ an era where things to be protected disappeared! it’s time to hunt’ raises curiosity about the mission. in an era when the local gods were also severely ill due to the turbulence of history, attention is focused on seeing what kind of activity the 6 members will do to turn the turbulent year of 1938 upside down. also, attention is focused on what prey they are chasing.
expectations are on the synergy of the actors who will show the essence of the k-fantasy action by maximizing the charm of the character. lee dong wook will once again fascinate viewers through lee yeon, a nine-tailed fox. it is expected that lee yeon, who had a happy ending with his ‘eternal first love’ nam ji ah (jo bo ah), was summoned to 1938, and the desperate struggle to return to the present waiting for his precious person will unfold dynamically.
kim so yeon takes on the role of ryu hong joo, the owner of myoyeon-gak, a top-notch restaurant in gyeongseong, and a former western mountain god with tremendous strength. lee yeon, whom she coveted from the moment they first met, but couldn’t have, reappears in front of him, making his dull daily life enjoyable. for some reason, ryu hong joo’s existence, which is dangerous and dizzying, stimulates curiosity about what variable it will be to lee yeon.
the story of lee yeon and lee rang (kim bum) is an important point. it is also the reason why kim bum’s comeback is awaited. in the previous season, lee rang resolved misunderstandings with his older brother lee yeon and even sacrificed himself, but in 1938, he meets lee yeon, who made a crash landing with the spirit of rebellion. the strange combination of the changed brothers rekindles the heat.
ryu kyung soo plays chun moo young, a man who can bring back the dead. a former northern mountain god, he was once the only friend of lee yeon and hong joo. however, due to a certain incident, he became hostile to lee yeon and entered into an unavoidable match with his old friend.
hwang hee and kim yong ji are also expected to perform ever-changing activities. hwang jee plays goo shin joo, a native fox who goes on a tough monster hunt with lee yeon and kim yong-ji transforms into seonwoo eun ho, a reporter for the sunwoo ilbo, adding vitality.
the production team said, “as the stage has changed, the hunting method of gumiho lee yeon has also changed. lee yeon’s unique style, exhilarating action, and more spectacular development unfolding on the expanded worldview will show the essence of k-fantasy action drama,” they said, “the performance of the six people who made an emergency landing in the era of chaos provides another genre of fun.”
“the tale of the nine tailed 1938” will premiere on may 6th.
