Lee Dong-wook lurks in the shadows in new promo for tvN’s Tale of the Nine Tailed
New promos have been released for tvN’s fantasy drama Tale of the Nine Tailed (formerly Tale of Gumiho), featuring the lead actors in new character stills as well as a video teaser.
The story is centered around Lee Dong-wook (Hell Is Other People), who plays a male gumiho named Lee Yeon. In the past he had once been a guardian god of the Baekdu-daegan mountains. But now he travels between the mortal and spirit realms in order to hunt down troublesome spirits and enact judgment on them.
While lurking within the city of Seoul, though, Lee becomes targeted by Jo Boa (Forest), who plays PD Nam Ji-ah. As a producer of a TV reality show on urban legends, she has learned a lot about ghost stories and is now a pseudo expert herself. But as she chases a lead for her show’s next segment, she finds herself tailing Lee Dong-wook.
Kim Bum (Mrs Cop 2) takes on the role of Lee Dong-wook’s younger half-brother, Lee Rang. There’s not much known about his character except that Kim’s mother was human. So unlike Lee, Kim is half human.
The newly released teaser focuses on Lee Dong-wook’s character and starts with a shadowy shot of his feet along with an umbrella by his side. In a quick sequence, we see different spirits hiding in the city who Lee is about to find. Umbrella in hand, Lee Dong-wook walks upstairs and stops at a bookcase where he pulls out a book. Cutting to a closer shot of Lee facing the camera, he mysteriously asks, “Do you really want to see it? The world I live in?” There is a brief shot of Lee Dong-wook standing on the upper level of his library before quickly returning to Lee in close-up again. And the teaser comes to a close as the light passes over Lee’s face, revealing his true nature.
Written and directed by the team who created Children of a Lesser God, PD Kang Shin-hyo and writer Han Woo-ri, tvN’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama Tale of the Nine Tailed is currently set to premiere on October 7 following Flower of Evil.
