Lee Dong Wook, Jo Bo Ah, Kim Bum, and other casts meet for the first script reading of “Tale of Gumiho”


The whole casts, Director Shin Hyo (The Heirs and Children of a Lesser God), and Writer Han Woo Ri gathered for the first time as they attended the drama’s first script reading held in April.


Despite of the difficulties due to pandemic, the complete casts namely Lee Dong Wook, Jo Bo Ah, Kim Bum, Kim Yong Ji, Hwang Hee, Kim Jeong Nan, and Ahn Gil Gang created a friendly environment that show their undenying chemistry towards each other.

Moreover, Director Kang Shin Hyo thanked the casts and production staff for attending the said event. He also expressed his determination to create a comfortable shooting environment for everyone.


The Tale of Gumiho is an upcoming urban fantasy drama that tells the story of a male gumiho who lived in the city. However, there is also a fearless producing director who is determined to hunt the gumiho down.


It will create a fascinating yet cruel love story between humans and Gumihos, and also expected to show an oriental fantasy action romance with scenes and stunts that haven’t seen yet in any drama.



Lee Dong Wook will be playing the lead role as Lee Yeon, a chic and charismatic mountain God Gumiho of Baekdudaegan but is now settled in the city.

As to Jo Bo Ah, she plays the female lead role named Nam Ji Ah, a producing director specializing in ghost stories. She tries to transform her acting into 180-degree different character.

She used her bold charm to justify Nam Ji Ah’s character as a woman who came out of the river. From her character as an easygoing individual to a brave on, portraying the fantastic fate entangled with Gumiho.

Joining the main casts, Kim Bum shows an unconventional acting role this time as Yi Rang, Lee Yeon’s (Lee Dong Wook) half-brother. He was born between a human and a Gumiho, and will be the source of conflict in the drama.

Kim Bum’s character describes as the most dangerous gumiho who holds a deep grudge towards humans. He occasionally seduces them by granting their wishes and they end up paying a hefty price.



Furthermore, the production team shared, “Tale of Gumiho is an oasis-like of work that will give us a fresh drama through a new way of speaking.”

“In the second half of 2020, it will bring different emotions with the constantly changing tension of Gumiho, that will also serves us so much fun and transformation,” they added.


Tale of Gumiho is set to premiere this coming October, but the airing time has not yet been announced.

The cute half-brother-gumihos... funny and cool at the same time... Will we see them do this too in their Drama Press Conference? :mrgreen:

















While the variety show City Fishers 2 was planning to bring their celebrity friends in their next trip unexpectedly mentioned both Tale of the Nine Tailed co-stars Lee Dong Wook and Jo Bo Ah respectively. Too bad they’re busy filming their new drama so the Veteran Actor who guested on Lee Dong Wook’s variety show Roommate and Jo Bo Ah’s comedian friend were not able to bring them.





Even in this episode the staff were so excited when Jo Bo Ah was mentioned but his call wasn’t answered and he said it’s because she’s busy filming a drama (Tale of the Nine Tailed). 





Yet in another episode she was able to answer when he tried to call her again while they were in a ship fishing (video link) ...

While Kim Beom posted on his ig and tagged Kim Yong Ji their Harper’s Bazaar photos.











Kim Beom and Kim Yongji show off sibling cami

Why are Kim Beom and Kim Yongji united?

by BAZAAR  2020.08.21


In the September issue of 'Harper's Bazaar Korea', Kim Beom and Kim Yongji showed off a pictorial that shows off their sibling chemistry.

The two are acting together in the drama (Gumihodian) scheduled to air in the second half of the year.

In an interview after the filming was over, Kim Beom said of this drama "It is new that the male Gumiho is the main character. According to a legend that goes down, it is said that if a fox lives 500 years, it becomes a human being regardless of gender. And if a fox lives 1000 years, it becomes a Cheonho that can use the power of the sky. In the drama, Lee Yeon, played by Lee Dong Wook is a Cheonho, while I have been living for about 500 years and can transform without any restricitons. He introduced his role as a friend who has a lot of animalistic sensations since he has just lived as a nine tailed fox.

Kim Beom said about Kim Yongji, "Yongji is a free spirited in front of the camera". And Yongji said about Kim Beom, "I don't have much experience in acting so when I asked what should I do like in the drama, I actually follow his lead a lot."

You can see their pictorials and interviews in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar Korea.

I'm looking forward to this. The teaser looks cool! I like shows with fantastical elements, particularly when it's the guy who's the supernatural being. I also tend to like slightly older male leads, and I find Kim Bum quite handsome, moreso now than when he was younger. I do wonder how the drama will be affect by the covid production delays... safety and health above all, of course, but I do hope there won't be too many issues!
