Kim Bum courted for tvN’s Tale of Gumiho
tvN recently announced that they have been in talks with Kim Bum (Mrs. Cop, Hidden Identity) regarding a role in their drama, Tale of Gumiho. According to reports, the actor is positively considering their offer. If he confirms, it will be his first drama since the completion of his mandatory military service as a public service worker.
Tale of Gumiho is about the story of a male nine-tailed fox who becomes settled in the city of Seoul, and the PD who learns about the Gumiho’s existence and decides to scout him for her reality TV show. Lee Dong-wook (Reach of Sincerity) and Jo Boa (Forest) have confirmed their participation as the gumiho and PD respectively. It’s an interesting twist on a traditional Korean folktale as the gumiho is typically depicted as a beautiful woman.
The role that Kim Bum has been offered is not clear, but I’d love to see him as Lee Dong-wook’s supernatural sidekick. I would watch for that bromance alone.
Upcoming fantasy drama Tale of Gumiho, directed by PD Kang Shin-hyo (Children of a Lesser God) and written by Han Woo-ri (Children of a Lesser God), is set to film and air later this year on tvN.
