3 Supernatural Beings In

The plot of SBS’s “Lovers of the Red Sky” is more intriguing than ever because of the three supernatural beings Grandmother Samshin (Moon Sook), Ho Ryeong (Jo Ye Rin), and Hwacha (Park Jung Hak)!

Based on a novel, “Lovers of the Red Sky” is a historical fantasy romance drama starring Kim Yoo Jung as Hong Chun Gi, the Joseon Dynasty’s only female painter, who was born blind but miraculously regains her vision, and Ahn Hyo Seop as the blind astrologer Ha Ram, who is able to read the stars despite losing his sight.


Hong Chun Gi and Ha Ram’s romance is blossoming day by day, and some credit needs to be given to the  supernatural beings who keep them safe from Ma Wang. Here’s a closer look at the three characters:

Grandmother Samshin

First of all, Grandmother Samshin continues to connect Hong Chun Gi and Ha Ram with a red thread, and she always appears in the nick of time to help them whenever Ma Wang appears. She shows up at the most random times to give advice or warnings, so it’s impossible to ignore her presence.

Above all, Grandmother Samshin is an important figure because she’s the one who sealed Ma Wang in Ha Ram’s body and gave his eyes to Hong Chun Gi. This prevented Ha Ram from dying during the rain ritual, and it also gave Hong Chun Gi the ability to see. However, her motives are still questionable, and it will be intriguing to see what she will cause next.

Ho Ryeong

Ho Ryeong may look like an average girl, but she is actually the spirit of Inwang Mountain. Whenever Hong Chun Gi is in danger, she appears in the form of a powerful tiger to fight against evil. Viewers couldn’t help but laugh when Hong Chun Gi mistook Ho Ryeong as a little girl who snuck into the palace. Ho Ryeong was fascinated that Hong Chun Gi could see her, and before she vanished into thin air, she warned the female painter, “Your eyes will go back to the original owner.”


Then there is Hwacha, a goblin who lives off of the energy of paintings. There is a rumor that all painters who signed a contract with him either died or went mad after completing a royal portrait. Previously, when Hong Chun Gi was attacked by Ma Wang, Hwacha came to her rescue as he fiercely said, “Don’t touch my painter.” It seems as if he has selected her as his next target, and it will be exciting to find out what will happen once the two meet. Will he be her friend or foe?

“Lovers of the Red Sky” airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 10 p.m. KST.
