“The Heavenly Idol” Previews Kim Min Kyu’s Intriguing Character Ties As Both High Priest And Idol Member
“The Heavenly Idol” has released an in-depth preview of their character relationships!
Based on a popular webtoon and web novel, tvN’s “The Heavenly Idol” is an upcoming fantasy drama starring Kim Min Kyu as High Priest Rembrary, who suddenly wakes up one day to find himself in the body of Woo Yeon Woo, a member of the unsuccessful idol group Wild Animal.
The newly released character chart shows High Priest Rembrary and Woo Yeon Woo as the core pieces of the story who connect all the different characters. A key factor of this chart is the link between these two characters that reads “swapped souls.” How did High Priest Rembrary suddenly become idol Woo Yeon Woo of Wild Animal? How will he adjust to his new life as a celebrity desperately trying to make it in the entertainment industry?
Closely linked to High Priest Rembrary and Woo Yeon Woo are Shin Jo Woon (Lee Jang Woo), Kim Dal (Go Bo Gyeol), and Redlin (Cha Joo Young).
Shin Jo Woon is the vice chairman of Korea’s largest entertainment company who is possessed by the other world’s King of Darkness. After getting defeated in a fight against Rembrary, the King of Darkness comes back to life and crosses over time and space to Korea in search of Rembrary. Kim Dal is a huge fan of Woo Yeon Woo who becomes Wild Animal’s manager. As the two continue working together, they develop a close and affectionate bond. Rembrary is devoted to serving Redlin, the respected god who connects the underworld with this world.
At LLL Entertainment are Woo Yeon Woo’s fellow Wild Animal members and their agency CEO Lim Sun Ja (Ye Ji Won). The Wild Animal members include Choi Jung Seo (Hong Seung Bum), Hwang Tae In (Shin Myung Sung), Cash (Choi Jae Hyun), and Cha Hae Gyeol (Shin Kyu Hyun). For the past five years, the group has struggled to make their name known.
Within the entertainment industry is Seon Woo Shil (Tak Jae Hoon), the nation’s best vocalist who is also Woo Yeon Woo’s mentor and Lim Sun Ja’s ex. However, Seon Woo Shil grows to dislike Woo Yeon Woo after disapproving of past remarks he’s made. How will their relationship change when he reunites with the changed Woo Yeon Woo?
