Gumiho brothers Lee Dong-wook and Kim Bum fight in Tale of the Nine Tailed
A thrilling new teaser for upcoming fantasy-romance drama Tale of the Nine Tailed has been released. It features Jo Boa (Forest) as an investigative PD pursuing rumors of a real gumiho, played by Lee Dong-wook (Hell Is Other People).
Lee Dong-wook is a legendary gumiho who has protected the Baekdudaegan mountain range since yore. He catches and passes judgement on mysterious monsters that have stepped out of line in the mortal world. Meanwhile, Jo Boa’s character has a burning passion for supernatural occurrences ever since her parents disappeared 21 years ago in a freak car accident. Finally, Kim Bum (Mrs. Cop 2) plays the most dangerous gumiho alive; he’s the half-human half-brother of Lee Dong-wook.
The teaser begins with Lee Dong-wook staring down at something, and Jo Boa’s voice asks, “A monster?” We’re transported to the scene of a car accident on an isolated road, and a man replies, “That person doesn’t age or die.”
There’s a close-up shot of Lee Dong-wook, and in his narration, he tells Jo Boa: “Forget everything about me.” He passes by her at a wedding, and she doesn’t back down, “You’re the only piece of evidence I have.” A flashback takes us to a hazy memory where she remembers a man who looks like Lee Dong-wook saving her on a bus.
In the middle of the forest, Lee Dong-wook and Kim Bum engage in an intense fight. He says, “A man who has succumbed to darkness is no longer anything, let alone a man,” and the teaser ends with close-up shots of the three main characters.
Wednesday-Thursday tvN drama Tale of the Nine Tailed will begin airing on October 7.
