Kim Hee Sun Appears Before Yoon Ji On To Guide Him To The Afterlife In “Tomorrow”
MBC’s “Tomorrow” has shared a glimpse of Yoon Ji On’s heartbreaking past!
Warning: mention of sexual assault and individuals contemplating suicide.
Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “Tomorrow” is a drama starring SF9‘s Rowoon as Choi Joon Woong, a mortal who gets into an unfortunate accident while struggling to find a job. As a result, he crosses paths with grim reapers Goo Ryun (Kim Hee Sun) and Lim Ryoong Goo (Yoon Ji On), who work together to save the lives of those who are contemplating suicide, and he winds up joining their team in the underworld as their youngest member.
In LIm Ryoong Goo’s previous life when he was a mortal, his biological mother (Min Ji Ah) took her own life after being sexually assaulted. In the present, he silently followed her reincarnated self around and shed sorrowful tears. Previously, the grim reaper mentioned that both he and Goo Ryun were working towards a goal, raising questions about whether his purpose is related to his mother.
Newly released stills share a deeper look into Lim Roong Goo’s past life. In the photos, he’s engaged in a bloody fight with a gang, and it is unsettling to see him alone without any backup. Despite that, his expression is filled with indescribable anger, and hot tears of despair are running down his face.
More stills show the grim reaper Goo Ryun guiding Lim Ryoong Goo as part of the Guiding Management Team. It is known that she used to guide criminals to the afterlife before working in the Crisis Management Team, so the photos hint that Lim Ryoong Goo committed a crime before his death. However, Goo Ryun’s eyes are filled with compassion instead of anger, and it will be intriguing to find out how Lim Ryoong Goo turned into a grim reaper instead of being punished in Hell.
The producers of “Tomorrow” teased, “Today, everything about Lim Ryoong Goo’s past life will be revealed. His story, including why he tries to maintain the Crisis Management Team and why he sheds tears when he sees his reincarnated mother, will be unveiled, so please show lots of interest.”
The next episode of “Tomorrow” will air on May 6 at 9:55 p.m. KST.
