Lee Dong Wook, Jo Bo Ah, and Kim Bum led the cast members, as they gather for the first table script read of tvN’s fantasy romance drama Tale of the Nine Tailed

Tale of the Nine Tailed is a fantasy-action romance drama between a male gumiho, (Lee Dong Wook) who settles in the city, and the courageous PD (Jo Bo Ah) who is chasing him.


Lee Dong Wook plays the role of a male gumiho named Lee Yeon. He is a chic and charismatic “mountain god” who settles in the city. The actor previously stole viewers’ hearts by portraying the role of a Grim Reaper in the hit Korean drama Goblin.

Jo Bo Ah plays Nam Ji Ah, a program PD that specializes in ghost stories. She is bold and an easygoing woman whose fate gets entangled with a gumiho.

Returning to the small screen after four years, Kim Bum portrays Lee Rang, Lee Yeon’s half-brother. He is a dangerous gumiho with an erratic personality who will bring various conflicts.

Other casts includes Kim Yong Ji as Yuri, Hwang Hee as Shinju, Kim Jung Nan as Palui Pa, and Ahn Kil Kang as Hyunui Wong. Bringing laughter to the entire scene, actors had quick exchanges of dialogue and even improvise ad-libs.

From the makers of OCN’s Children of A Lesser God,  Director Kang Shin Hyo (The Heirs) reunites with Screenwriter Han Woo Ri, who has worked with him since Children of A Lesser God.

Initiating a friendly atmosphere, Director Kang Shin Hyo expressed his gratitude to the actors and staff who attended despite the difficult situation. Meanwhile, Screenwriter Han Woo Ri expressed her determination to create a comfortable filming environment.

The production team said, “Tale of the Nine Tailed will be an oasis for viewers who are craving for something fresh and new. We promise to bring laughter and tears in the second half of 2020.”
