“Tale of the Nine-Tailed Cat” on tvN has released a first look at Lee Dong Wook in the upcoming season!
The story of the male gumiho (a mythical nine-tailed fox) Yi Yeon (Lee Dong Wook) in a modern era is told in “Tale of the Nine-Tailed,” which aired at the end of 2020 and stars Lee Dong Wook, Jo Bo Ah, and Kim Bum. Despite the fact that Yi Yeon had a happy ending with Nam Ji Ah (Jo Bo Ah) in Season 1, he will be caught up in an unexpected incident and transported to the year 1938. “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” will depict Yi Yeon’s desperate attempt to return to the present day, where all of his loved ones are.
It was previously announced in May 2022 that Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum will return for Season 2 alongside Kim So Yeon and Ryu Kyung Soo. Season 1 director Kang Shin Hyo and scriptwriter Han Woo Ri will reunite for the new project.
Before the Season 2 premiere next month, tvN has released a sneak peek of Yi Yeon in “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938.” Yi Yeon’s life appears to be peaceful before the chaos begins. Yi Yeon looks into a glass case of ice cream with a shy smile, pondering which flavor to get.
Although Yi Yeon appears to live a normal life in modern society, complete with Wi-Fi, mint chocolate chip ice cream, and his beloved, it is clear that his connection to the afterlife has not been severed completely. Yi Yeon is seated at the Afterlife Immigration Office, which is guarded by Taluipa (Kim Jung Nan) in the following still. What business does Yi Yeon have with Taluipa now that he has lost all of his gumiho powers?
Later, a photograph of Yi Yeon from 1938 piques viewers’ interest even more. Although his surroundings and the people around him are somewhat familiar, there are hints of foreign languages sprinkled throughout. His perplexed expression reflects his discomfort and the impending turbulence in this new environment. Stay tuned to find out what mission he has to complete all the way back in 1938!
Lee Dong Wook said of his return as Yi Yeon, “I’m happy and glad to act as Yi Yeon again.” It’s exciting to be able to show off a project that I’ve been working on with the director and writer since last season. I’d appreciate it if viewers enjoyed it as well.”
“Change” was chosen as a key point to look forward to by Lee Dong Wook, who commented, “As the time period has changed, there are also big changes in behavior.” He is fiercely guarding his love for Nam Ji Ah, so you will see him work tirelessly to recover and protect other things.”
The premiere of “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” will premieres on May 6 at 9:20 p.m. KST, following the conclusion of “Pandora: Beneath the Paradise.”
