Korean dramas, or K-dramas, have gained a massive following worldwide, and for good reason. With their unique blend of romance, drama, and fantasy, K-dramas offer a welcome escape from reality. One of the most anticipated K-dramas of the year is ‘The Tale of a Nine Tailed Fox 1938’, starring Lee Dong Wook.
‘The Tale of a Nine Tailed Fox’ was a hugely popular K-drama that aired in 2020, and it’s not surprising that fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Lee Dong Wook as Lee Yeon. In the new drama, Lee Yeon finds himself in 1938, a time of chaos and upheaval, and he must navigate his way through this unfamiliar world to return to the modern age.
The teaser poster released by tvN gives us a glimpse of what to expect. Lee Yeon is shown in an unfamiliar street, surrounded by Japanese signboards. This hints at the historical context of the drama, as 1938 was a significant year in Korean history. Gyeongseong, the location shown in the poster, was the name of Seoul during the Japanese colonial era, and the phrase “I and the world I belong to have all begun to twist” suggests that the drama will explore the complex history of this era.
