Filming Kicks Off for Tale of Gumiho: 1938 Telling the Story Gumiho Brothers Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum Time-traveling to 1938 and Solving a Mystery with Kim So Yeon

This isn’t a sequel and now it’s not even a true prequel to tvN 2021 fantasy drama Tale of Gumiho (Tale of the Nine-tailed). It’s called Tale of Gumiho:1938 and from the date everyone thought it would deal with the lives of immortal gumiho leads Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum from that era. Now the spoiler is out that it deals with present day Lee Yeon and Lee Rang after their happy-ish ending at the end of the original drama and somehow a portal opens up and they time-travel back to 1938 to interact with new female lead Kim So Yeon. What happens there causes another rift between the brothers which makes no sense because they repaired the rift already and the drama could have just used their selves from 1938 which still hated each other. I guess what they learned the first time around will come in handy in this time-travel scenario. Whatever the case, at least there will be pretty period sets and period costumes to enjoy.
