Key Points To Look Out For In Climactic Final Episodes Of “Tale Of The Nine-Tailed”
tvN’s “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” is hurtling toward its climactic finale!
“Tale of the Nine-Tailed” is a fantasy action romance drama that stars Lee Dong Wook as the male gumiho (a mythical nine-tailed fox) Lee Yeon, Jo Bo Ah as producer Nam Ji Ah, and Kim Bum as Lee Yeon’s brother Lee Rang. They find themselves entangled in a battle with Imoogi (Lee Tae Ri), a serpent beast in human form.
With only two episodes left, the drama unveiled four key points that will be answered before everything ends.
1. Nam Ji Ah and the gun
Kwon Hae Ryong (Uhm Hyo Seop), who was once Imoogi’s servant, joined hands with Lee Rang and visited Nam Ji Ah. He aimed his gun at her and declared she must die in order for him to live. The episode ended with a bang as he pulled the trigger, and viewers are eager to find out what happened to Nam Ji Ah and why Lee Rang ordered Kwon Hae Ryong to kill her.
2. Lee Yeon and Imoogi’s partnership
Imoogi, who was angered by Lee Yeon, brought a plague upon the world and killed countless innocent people. Taluipa (Kim Jung Nan) couldn’t stand by and watch anymore people die, so she corrected Nam Ji Ah’s death date in order to finish her off. Lee Yeon begged her to give him some time so that Imoogi’s main identity can come into his body, and he vowed to jump into the Samdocheon River to get rid of them both.
However, Lee Yeon had to resort to forming an alliance with Imoogi, and he proposed they go after Taluipa themselves on the condition that Imoogi lets go of Nam Ji Ah, takes his other half, and disappear from their side forever. After much thinking, Imoogi agreed, and they shook hands on it. Viewers are keen to find out if their partnership will work out and how they will go after Taluipa together.
3. Fight with Taluipa
With Lee Yeon and Imoogi’s partnership, questions are mounting over whether they can really attack Taluipa. After all, she is a high-ranking bureaucrat at the Afterlife Immigration Office and the sister of the supreme ruler of the underworld. With her power and strength, she will not be an easy opponent to defeat. Will Lee Yeon and Imoogi be able to find a secret weapon to take her down, or will there be a twist in the plan?
4. Déjà vu of the past
Last but not least, Lee Yeon and Nam Ji Ah have been experiencing a déjà vu of the past from 600 years ago. Both Ah Eum (Jo Bo Ah) and Nam Ji Ah saw the red umbrella when they first met Lee Yeon. When the fox bead disappeared from Nam Ji Ah, the inner Imoogi within her woke up, just like 600 years ago. All they can do now is hope that they’ll have a better ending, unlike last time when Lee Yeon had no choice but to kill Ah Eum.
The drama’s production crew stated, “Please look forward to how the 2020 edition of ‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed’ will have a different ending from the traditional fairy tale we used to know.”
“Tale of the Nine-Tailed” airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. KST.
