Prepare for an epic showdown between Lee Dong Wook and Ha Do Kwon in the next episode of “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” on tvN!
“Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” is a sequel to the hit 2020 drama “Tale of the Nine-Tailed,” which told the story of Yi Yeon (Lee Dong Wook), a male gumiho (mythical nine-tailed fox) in the present day. In the new sequel, however, he finds himself unexpectedly back in 1938, and he embarks on an eventful adventure in his quest to return to the present.
Yi Yeon discovered an abandoned baby on the front steps of Myoyeongak in the previous episode. Yi Yeon decided to leave the baby on someone else’s doorstep because he knew he couldn’t take responsibility for the baby’s future. However, no matter how hard he tries, the baby keeps appearing at their gate. When he looked at the baby later, he noticed that the marks on the baby’s forehead were actually the Big Dipper constellation. Soon after Yi Yeon realized the baby was no ordinary infant, police arrived and ordered Yi Yeon to hand over the baby. It turns out that it is the demand of the God, who is currently imprisoned by Ryuhei Kato (Ha Do Kwon), the director of the Police Department of the Government-General.
The most recent stills depict Yi Yeon’s eventual confrontation with Ryuhei Kato over the mysterious baby. Yi Yeon detects his opponent’s extraordinary power even by brushing past him and stops in his tracks. The same can be said of Ryuhei Kato, who, despite displaying brutal power when he punished his subordinate Akira Saito (Lim Ji Ho) in previous episodes, appears surprised when he senses Yi Yeon’s power. Soon after, the two engage in a tense battle of nerves, drawing their swords against each other.
“The inevitable fight begins,” the production team teased. By brushing past each other, the two can tell that the other is a tough opponent. It will be an exciting experience in which their lives will be imprinted on each other’s minds. Viewers will see another side of Yi Yeon as he attempts to overcome another crisis.”
