Kim Kang-min confirmed to star alongside Lee Dong-wook, Jo Bo-ah in new fantasy drama ‘Tale of the Nine Tailed’

Rookie actor Kim Kang-min has become the newest addition to the cast of tvN’s upcoming romantic human-fantasy drama Tale of the Nine Tailed.

Tale of the Nine Tailed tells the story of a gumiho named Lee Yeon (Lee Dong-wook, Strangers from Hell), a nine-tailed fox who has just settled in the city. Able to transform into human form, he sets out to clean the mess left behind by those who create havoc in the human world. He is soon hunted down by the fearless production director Nam Ji-ah (Jo Bo-ah, Forest), whose current TV show features urban legends and mythical creatures. Meanwhile, Lee Yeon’s stepbrother Lee Rang (Kim Bum, Mrs. Cop 2) enters the picture, a dangerous half-human who harbors a deep-seated contempt for people. He occasionally unleashes his seductive prowess upon them and promises to grant their earthly desires, for which they only end up paying a hefty price.

Kim Kang-min will suit up as Pyo Jae-hwan, a timid assistant director of Nam Ji-ah’s program. Kim started his acting career in television dramas by appearing in the sports-themed series Stove League (2019–2020). He then widened his experience and gained positive attention for his performances in other television dramas, tvN’s Hospital Playlist (2020) and the most recent, MBC’s She Knows Everything (2020).

On his role in the upcoming drama, Kim shared, “I am very happy and grateful to have the opportunity to join a good project. I am looking forward to doing my best and contributing to the synergy among the actors, so please continue your anticipation for the series.”

Tale of the Nine Tailed is directed by PD Kang Shin-hyo of The Heirs (2013) and Children of a Lesser God (2018), while screenwriter Han Woo-ri has taken charge of penning the script. It is slated to air in the second half of 2020.
