Lee Jin Wook, Kwon Nara, Lee Joon, Gong Seung Yeon, And More Attend Script Reading For Upcoming Fantasy Drama
tvN shared photos from the first script reading of their upcoming Saturday-Sunday drama “Bulgasal” (literal title)!
“Bulgasal” is a fantasy drama about a woman who has experienced many reincarnations over the past 600 years while remembering all her past lives, and a man who is immortal and has lived for over 600 years as a bulgasal, a mythical creature that feeds on human blood.
The drama is directed by Jang Young Woo (who worked on “Mr. Sunshine” and “Sweet Home” with director Lee Eung Bok) and written by Kwon So Ra and Seo Jae Won (“The Guest”). It stars Lee Jin Wook as Dan Hwal, Kwon Nara as Min Sang Woon, Lee Joon as Ok Eul Tae, Gong Seung Yeon as Dan Sol, Jung Jin Young as Dan Geuk, Park Myung Shin as Munyeo, and UP10TION’s Kim Woo Seok as Nam Do Yoon.
Lee Jin Wook’s character, Dan Hwal, was born human 600 years ago but became a bulgasal. The actor said, “He’s a character who lives for revenge.” Kwon Nara plays Min Sang Woon, the woman who keeps getting reincarnated while fleeing from the bulgasal that is pursuing her.
Lee Joon plays Ok Eul Tae, whom he introduces as, “A mysterious character about whom nothing has been revealed yet.” He controls the events that play out in the drama, but is veiled in shadows himself. Gong Seung Yeon plays Dan Sol, Dan Hwal’s wife 600 years ago. Jung Jin Young plays Dan Geuk, a powerful general who was Dan Sol’s father. Park Myung Shin plays Munyeo (a female shaman), who lived 600 years ago. The actress said, “A bulgasal will chase a human soul that it has a grudge against until the bitter end.” Kim Woo Seok plays Nam Do Yoon, a high school student who follows Dan Hwal around like a puppy.
“Bulgasal” is slated to premiere after the end of “Jirisan.” Check out a teaser here!
