This January 2023 will usher in Season of Kkok Du, the fantasy romance drama from MBC that brings together Im Soo Hyang and Kim Jung Hyun in a love story that isn’t just soul snatching it’s also fated to be. Kim Jung Hyun is a Grim Reaper who goes on a forced vacation and takes over the body of a doctor and finds himself falling for a fellow doctor and helps her. I thought it was just a Meet Joe Black situation but turns out these two clearly had a previous life backstory and now she’s reincarnated while he’s suffering in the afterlife as a Grim Reaper until this reunion. I’m keeping my hopes up for this drama and also curious how Kim Jung Hyun’s return will be received by the domestic viewers.
