Im Soo Hyang Talks About The Symbolic Meanings Behind Characters Of

Im Soo Hyang has shared her own interpretation on the characters in “Kokdu: Season of Deity”!

“Kokdu: Season of Deity” is a new fantasy romance which tells the story of a grim reaper named Kokdu (Kim Jung Hyun) who comes down to this world to punish humans every 99 years. When Kokdu meets Han Gye Jeol (Im Soo Hyang), a doctor with mysterious abilities, he starts working as a visiting doctor.

Just like how her co-star Kim Jung Hyun had commented about the script in his interview, Im Soo Hyang also remarked that the script was so entertaining that she finished it on the spot. For Im Soo Hyang, who always wanted to try a fantasy or historical drama, “Kokdu: Season of Deity” was a project that she welcomed with pleasure.

Im Soo Hyang shared that she had to interpret the two characters Han Gye Jeol and Seol Hee (her character from her past life) with delicacy in order to portray the connected fate of the two who had completely different lives in different time periods. She explained, ”For Han Gye Jeol, I tried to highlight the courageous and lively personality whereas for Seol Hee, I portrayed her as a shy woman who is in love.”

Im Soo Hyang also talked about the chemistry between Han Gye Jeol and Kokdu. She said, “I think they probably fight more than any other couples from romance dramas. I wish [viewers] look fondly upon the two who look like a perfect couple but bicker just like Tom and Jerry.”

As a closing remark, the actress commented, “I hope ‘Kokdu: Season of Deity’ will be remembered as spring. In the drama, Kokdu symbolizes winter, and Han Gye Jeol symbolizes summer. Thus, it can be said that [the drama] depicts snow falling down in mid-summer. Spring is the season that connects these two characters. I hope it will be remembered as a drama that gives heart-fluttering moments like when seeing cherry blossoms in full bloom in spring after winter passes.”

“Kokdu: Season of Deity” premieres on January 27 at 9:50 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
