Earlier today, Sports Chosun reported that Kim So Yeon was cast as the new heroine of the tvN series Tale of the Nine-Tailed. To which, the actress’s agency J,WIDE-COMPANY responded, “Thankfully, a lot of scripts are coming in. And season two of Tale of the Nine-Tailed is one of them. Nothing has been confirmed regarding her comeback.”
Tale of the Nine-Tailed, which aired its first season last year, is a fantasy action romance about a gumiho that has settled in the city and a TV producer who pursues him. The show became a big hit, recording 5.7% ratings nationwide. Lee Dong Wook, Kim Bum, and Jo Bo Ah took the leading roles.
Not long ago, media outlets reported that tvN had decided to produce two more 16-part seasons of Tale of the Nine-Tailed. With the following seasons, the show will take the viewers back to the past. Season 2 is set in the Japanese colonial period, while season 3 takes place in the Joseon Dynasty.
In particular, Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum have joined the cast, while Jo Bo Ah decided not to join the follow-up season. Kang Shin Hyo, who directed the first season, will helm the production once again.
Meanwhile, Kim Seo Yeon received great love for her role as Chun Seo Jin in the SBS series The Penthouse, which aired from last year to September this year. Accordingly, interest in her comeback is through the roof.
