The fantasy parable of the fairy who lost her wings is quite popular in many Asian cultures and is always problematic in any retelling for the modern sensibility. She comes down from the Heavens, takes off all her clothes including her magical fairy cloth wings to take a bath in the mountain lake, and a human woodcutter spots her and steals her fairy cloth wings and she has no choice but to marry him because she can’t go back to Heaven. Most of the retellings have her miserable, rightly, with her basically coercive husband and ends with her finding the hidden fairy wings and leaving her husband and child to fly back to Heaven. Good for her but sad for the blameless kid. The upcoming K-drama Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter (Tale of the Gyeryong Fairy) uses the premise and has the husband dying in a fall off a cliff (did she push him lol?) and the fairy living for 600 years into modern times to wait for his reincarnation and find her dang fairy cloth wings at long last. Moon Chae Won is the titular fairy and looks adorable in the first teaser which uses animation to show us the past transition to modern day Fairy as a barista.
