Kim Bum, Jo Ba Ah, Lee Dong Wook, And More, Gather For 1st Script Reading For 'Tale of the Nine-Tailed'
As new fantasy drama emerges as tvN's upcoming "Tale of the Nine-Tailed" has released official photos of their first script reading.
The "Tale of the Nine-Tailed" is an "urban fantasy drama," which tells the story of Kim Bum and Lee Dong Wook as male gumihos. A gumiho is a Korean mythical nine-tailed fox with the ability to change appearance, which sometimes eats humans.
Lee Dong Wook will play as Yi Yeon, who previously was a god and now works as a public official. His primary role is to clean up the mess made in the living world while hiding the guise of ghost tales.
Meanwhile, Kim Bum will play the role of Yi Rang, "the most dangerous gumiho." Yi Rang lives amongst humans and yet, happens to hate them. He deceives humans in granting their wish but making them pay the price in the end.
Jo Ba Ah is set to play as Nam Jin, a courageous production director who leads a show that goes to an adventure from a surprising religious cult to entering haunted houses for her show Finding Urban Legends. The competitive girl ends up hunting Yi Yeon.
From Kim Bum's Boys Over Flowers(2009) to Lee Dong Wook's Goblin(2016), seeing them on the same screen is a different kind of excitement. Yet, this is Kim Bum's first small-screen project after Mrs. Cop 2, which was four years ago, following that he just finished his mandatory military service.
Kim Yong Ji will take the role of Yoo Ri, Hwang Hee as Shin Joo, Kim Jung Nan as Pal Eui Pa, and Ahn Kil Kang will take Hyun Eui Ong. This drama will be more exciting, having this unique cast of characters.
The production staff ensures everyone that the drama will make viewers laugh and move in the second half of 2020 despite the pandemic. Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum's upcoming TV series is undoubtedly to be in your watchlist.
"Tale of the Nine-Tailed" is set to launch this October. (via Soompi)
