As tvN’s “Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” winds to a close, the stars of the drama shared their thoughts ahead of tonight’s finale!
“Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938” is a sequel to the hit 2020 drama “Tale of the Nine-Tailed,” which told the story of the male gumiho (mythical nine-tailed fox) Yi Yeon (played by Lee Dong Wook) in the present day. In the new season, Yi Yeon unexpectedly found himself back in 1938, and he embarked on an eventful adventure in his quest to return to the present.
Lee Dong Wook expressed his gratitude to viewers for the chance to reprise his role as Yi Yeon, commenting, “It was an honor to be able to play Yi Yeon once again. I will hold dear all the love you gave ‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938.'”
Kim So Yeon joined the cast this season as a new character: the fierce mountain goddess Ryu Hong Joo.
The actress remarked, “It was such an honor to play Ryu Hong Joo, and I’d like to sincerely thank directors Kang Shin Hyo and Jo Nam Hyung, as well as writer Han Woo Ri, for creating and depicting Ryu Hong Joo as charming and cool. Thanks to the entire cast and crew of ‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938,’ I’ve never been happier on a filming set.”
As for what viewers should keep an eye out for in the finale, Kim So Yeon went on to tease, “It was hard to hold back my tears when filming the second half of Episode 12. I hope you’ll look forward to finding out what kind of scene made me tear up so much. Please stay tuned until the very end.”
Kim Bum, who returned as the beloved character Yi Rang, repeatedly thanked viewers for making a second season of “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” a reality.
The actor said humbly, “Thanks to the fact that you sent us so much love, I was able to meet these great people again. Together with these people, I was able to spend time as Yi Rang, whom I love so dearly. I’d like to thank all of our viewers again and again. I was truly happy [during filming].”
In terms of what viewers can expect from the final episode, Kim Bum revealed, “In ‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938’—which has been chaotically racing ahead thus far—all of the characters, including the gumihos and mountain gods, will finally come together with the same goal and look towards the same direction together for the very first time. If you keep an eye on how this story will wrap up—and especially what kind of farewell Yi Rang will wind up facing—I think you’ll enjoy it.”
Finally, Ryu Kyung Soo, who played mountain god Cheon Moo Young, took a nostalgic look back at his time filming the drama.
“I feel like for the past eight months, I’ve been traveling from place to place all over Korea and making wonderful memories together with great people, as if we were on vacation together,” said the actor.
“I would like to sincerely thank everyone who loved Cheon Moo Young,” he continued. I learned a lot through ‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed 1938,’ and I was really happy [during filming]. I had a lot of fun.”
