There’s no denying everyone's excitement for upcoming fantasy K-drama Tale of Gumiho starring Lee Dong Wook, Jo Bo Ah, and Kim Bum that’s set to premiere in October. So when TvN finally released a video teaser revealing LDW as Lee Yeon as a mystical nine-tailed fox, our jaws simply dropped on the floor.
Lee Dong Wook is known for his versatility as an actor—proven by his dynamic roles in Goblin, Touch Your Heart, Strangers from Hell, and Life, just to name a few—so it comes as no surprise that he has shape-shifted yet again for Tale of Gumiho. Based on the teaser, Lee Yeon may not be your typical “good guy” leading man as the video hints of a devilish side to him.
The video opens with Lee Yeon entering what looks to be his lair.
The mysterious gumiho has quite an expansive library of books.
Flashes of bloody scenes are also shown. We wonder what this will all mean in the show?
The teaser ends with a ray of light on Lee Yeon's face revealing his golden eyes.
TvN has yet to reveal more about Jo Bo Ah and Kim Bum’s roles, but we’re definitely keeping our eyes open for hints in the weeks to come!
