Kang Sora and Yoon Hyun Min Considering Offer for tvN Fantasy Romance Gyeryong Goddess

Recently I wrote about the impending K-drama adaption of the webtoon with the literal title of  Legend of the Chicken Dragon Fairy and now casting has begun. Offers are out to Kang Sora and Yoon Hyun Min for the leads of Gyeryong Goddess (tentative title) with the drama being picked up on tvN. I sure hope this fantasy fairy drama is better than tvN’s recent fails with Bride of the Water God and now Hwayugi, and I mean fail in terms of narrative and/or poor casting choices.

Since this is based on a webtoon and I like both Kang Sora and Yoon Hyun Min’s acting abilities and chemistry with former costars this drama is shaping up on the promising side. It’s the tale of a goddess from heaven who lost her wings and falls in love with a human, but she lives forever and he dies so six hundred years later she’s a modern day barista waiting for her true love to be reincarnated. It’s like a conceptually super depressing Goblin crossed with Groundhog’s Day. Directing will be PD Kim Yoon Chul of Can We Love and Madame Antoine. Continue reading
