By  | 

Another romance fantasy drama is in the works and it stars two of the most talented actors today, Kim Jung Hyun and Im Soo Hyang!

Kim Jung Hyun and Im Soo Hyang recently confirmed their appearance in upcoming drama on MBC titled Kkokdu’s Gye Jeol (literal title, also meaning “The Season of Kkokdu”).

The program tells the story of a grim reaper named Kkokdu who comes down to this world to punish humans every 99 years. Kkokdu meets Han Gye Jeol, a doctor with mysterious abilities, and starts working as a visiting doctor.

Kkokdu’s Gye Jeol is the brainchild of writers Kang Yi Heon and Heo Jun Woo, who worked on the the unique crime thriller Less Than Evil. Director Baek Soo Chan of Alice, Reunited Worlds, and Beautiful Gongshim, and director Kim Ji Hoon of Check Out the Event will lead the overall production of the drama.


Kim Jung Hyun will play Kkokdu, the eccentric guide of the underworld. For getting on the wrong side of God, Kkokdu has been cursed to lead the deceased in the afterlife and get rid of the human trash in this world by entering the body of Do Jin Woo, a human who looks just like him. 

Meanwhile, Im Soo Hyang is now gearing up to play Han Gye Jeol, a doctor who graduated from a medical school that is ranked last in the nation. After her mother passed away at a young age, she has no other relatives except for her younger brother. She begins to feel less and less confident due to the cold society that only recognizes doctors from prestigious universities. However, she faces a turning point in her life after Do Jin Woo appears in front of her and takes her side for the first time. 

Anticipation is now getting high on how the actors will portray such interesting roles and how will they show their immersive chemistry.

The production team remarked, “The passionate acting of Kim Jung Hyun and Im Soo Hyang is making the filming site more lively. Including the two actors, everyone involved in filming is working hard to create a great drama, so we ask for your interest and anticipation for ‘The Season of Kkokdu.’”

The Season of Kkokdu is currently being filmed. As of current writing, there’s no news as to when the drama will air on the small screen.
