After its first week of broadcast, MBC’s “Kokdu: Season of Deity” has shared intriguing points to keep an eye on!
“Kokdu: Season of Deity” is a fantasy romance which tells the story of a grim reaper named Kokdu (Kim Jung Hyun) who comes down to this world to punish humans every 99 years. When Kokdu meets Han Gye Jeol (Im Soo Hyang), a doctor with mysterious abilities, he starts working as a visiting doctor.
Here are three key points to get you even more excited for the upcoming episodes:
The curse of their extreme love
Oh Hyun (Kim Jung Hyun) and Seol Hee’s (Im Soo Hyang’s) only wish was to love and be together. However, their extreme love for each other led to the sacrifices of many people which caused Oh Hyun to be cursed into becoming Kokdu, the god of the underworld, and Seol Hee to be cursed to repeat her cruel death in her next lives. As the two star-crossed lovers raise anticipation for their fate that has yet to end, Han Gye Jeol, who has the same face as Seol Hee, becomes entangled with Kokdu through an unexpected incident. If the relationship in the past was a tragic romance for them, the current relationship between Han Gye Jeol and Kokdu is somewhat different as they bicker with each other with Gye Jeol possessing a mysterious ability to make Kokdu’s body to move as she wants.
A flower ring that is a token of Oh Hyun and Seol Hee’s promise to meet again
Oh Hyun gave Seol Hee the rhododendron flower ring as a token of Oh Hyun’s promise to protect her and meet her again no matter what. The ring, which appeared out of nowhere when Kokdu met Han Gye Jeol for the first time, goes around and around until it goes back to Kokdu’s hand. At the end of episode 2, Kokdu asked Han Gye Jeol, “Do you know about this ring?” and subtle tension flowed between the two, raising curiosity for the role of the ring.
Ill-fated relationships from the past continue
The high official, who forced Seol Hee to marry him and was eventually killed by her in the past, reincarnated as Kim Pil Soo (Choi Kwang Il), who plotted the medical malpractice accident of Do Jin Woo’s mother. The archer who shot an arrow at Oh Hyun’s chest also reincarnated as Kim Pil Soo’s subordinate Joong Sik (Kim Young Woong) in the present life. As their scheme puts Han Gye Jeol at risk of being kicked out of the hospital, it seems that the shadow of darkness continues to chase after Oh Hyun and Seol Hee in their current lives.
Episode 3 of “Kokdu: Season of Deity” will air on February 3 at 9:50 p.m. KST. Stay tuned!
