Okay, I am not feeling the transformation of Lee Dong Wook into the titular gumiho in upcoming tvN drama Tale of Gumiho. He looks like a K-drama bargain basement version of Edward Cullen from Twilight, and it doesn’t help that Lee Dong Wook vibes with Robert Pattinson. I do get the gumiho in Korean folklore has certain characteristics but being a emo pale skinned amber eyed hottie just doesn’t scream “original” to me. I’m still excited about this drama because Kim Bum is also in it but now I’m worried the production will turn him into the bargain basement version of another one of the Twilight vampires, maybe one of the baddies with tons of guyliner if he’s the antagonist here. The first teaser is also out and it’s super heavy on the atmospherics and my takeaway is to expect the gumiho to live in a castle lair type abode lol.
