The drama is about a grim reaper named Kkokdu (played by Kim Jung Hyun), who comes down to the earth to punish humans every 99 years. He meets a female doctor named Han Gye Jeol (Im Soo Hyang), who has special abilities, and starts working as a visiting doctor.
The drama is expected to be a little somber storywise as it revolves around a reaper who brings death to human beings. When asked what the series will be about, Im Soo Hyang explained that the drama deals with heavy themes in its story in a lighthearted way. “The show has many powerful scenes that can pull you out of your depression,” she added.
Kim Jung Hyun and Im Soo Hyang, who teamed up for the first time for the drama, were asked how their chemistry was. Kim replied, “Soo Hyang is my age. But she is a lot more experienced than I am, as she debuted earlier than I did. She helped me focus on my character a lot.”
Im Soo Hyang also praised him, saying, “I also learned a lot from him. I had so much fun working with him as he knew much about how to portray a role in a way I had not thought about.” The two had a pleasant time sharing how much fun they had during filming Kkokdu: Season of Deity.
Kokdu: Season of Deity will premiere on January 27th.
