Replacing ‘Tale of the Nine Tailed’ Season 2’s Female Lead A Smart Move?
In 2020, tvN released the fantasy-romance series “Tale of the Nine Tailed,” which starred Lee Dong Wook, Kim Bum, and Jo Bo Ah. With its interesting plot, viewers enjoyed the drama, prompting the production to release season 2.
However, some of the original cast had a conflict in schedules during the allotted filming time. Unfortunately, Jo Bo Ah wasn’t able to make it to the second installment, making the production look for new actors to join the cast.
Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum reprised their roles in the new season. In May 2022, the drama’s production confirmed that “The Penthouse” actress Kim So Yeon would officially participate in the project.
Despite the conflicting opinions before its broadcast, viewers have observed that the decision to replace the female lead in “Tale of the Nine Tailed” season 2 was a genius move.
