Lee Dong Wook's Peaceful Life Randomly Turns Upside Down In

tvN’s “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” has dropped a first look at Lee Dong Wook in the upcoming season!

Starring Lee Dong Wook, Jo Bo Ah, and Kim Bum, “Tale of the Nine-Tailed,” which aired at the end of 2020, tells the story of the male gumiho (a mythical nine-tailed fox) Yi Yeon (Lee Dong Wook) in a modern era. Although Yi Yeon found a happy ending with Nam Ji Ah (Jo Bo Ah) in Season 1, he will get swept up in an unexpected incident and get summoned to the year of 1938. “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” will depict Yi Yeon’s desperate struggle to return to present day where all the people precious to him are.

Previously in May 2022, it was confirmed that Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum will be returning for Season 2 joined by Kim So Yeon and Ryu Kyung Soo. Director Kang Shin Hyo and scriptwriter Han Woo Ri from Season 1 will be reuniting for the new project.

Ahead of the upcoming Season 2 premiere next month, tvN has dropped a glimpse of Yi Yeon in “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938.” Before all the chaos ensues, Yi Yeon’s life looks peaceful. With a shy smile, Yi Yeon peers into a glass case of ice cream, sincerely pondering which flavor he should get.

Although Yi Yeon appears to lead a regular life in modern society where there is Wi-Fi, mint chocolate chip ice cream, and his dear lover, it’s clear that his connection to the afterlife has not been completely severed. In the following still, Yi Yeon is seated at the Afterlife Immigration Office that is protected by Taluipa (Kim Jung Nan). Now that Yi Yeon has lost all his powers as a gumiho, what business does he have with Taluipa?

Later, viewers’ interest is piqued further with a photo of Yi Yeon in the year 1938. Although his surroundings and the people nearby feel somewhat familiar, there are hints of foreign languages here and there. His bewildered expression reflects his discomfort and the upcoming turbulence he will soon face in this new setting. Stay tuned to find out what mission he must carry out all the way back in the year 1938!

On making his return as Yi Yeon, Lee Dong Wook shared, “I’m happy and glad to act as Yi Yeon again. It’s exciting to again showcase a project I put a lot of effort in to with the director and writer since last season. I will be grateful if viewers enjoy it also.”

Lee Dong Wook chose “change” as a key point to look forward to, commenting, “As the time period has changed, there are also big changes in behavior. He is firmly guarding his love with Nam Ji Ah, so you will be able to see him work hard to recover and protect other things.”

“Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” premieres on May 6 at 9:20 p.m. KST following the conclusion of “Pandora: Beneath the Paradise.”
