Watch: Lee Jin Wook And Kwon Nara Unexpectedly Fall In Love Despite Their Abominable Past In “Bulgasal” Highlight Reel
Upcoming tvN drama “Bulgasal” has released a five-minute video highlighting what will take place in the drama.
“Bulgasal” is a new fantasy drama starring Lee Jin Wook as Dan Hwal, a bulgasal (a mythical creature that cannot die or age) who was once human centuries ago. Kwon Nara will star as Min Sang Woon, a woman who is repeatedly reincarnated while fleeing the bulgasal but remembers all her past lives.
The highlight video depicts the forbidden love story of Dan Hwal and Min Sang Woon. It starts with Min Sang Woon staring at a mystical portrait, and she asks, “Is this really me?” Dan Hwal’s voice narrates, “I told you. You’ve had many previous lives.”
When Min Sang Woon was a child, her sister pushed her into the closet to hide her from a mysterious and dangerous being. Her sister screams, “Please don’t do this! The police is coming!” Then her voiceover commands, “Find a way to kill the bulgasal. You’ll know him when you see him.” Years later, Min Sang Woon comes face to face with the creature himself, and her eyes water with emotions as she asks, “You’re the bulgasal, aren’t you?”
One man asks Dan Hwal, “Why have you been searching for the woman named Min Sang Woon for the past 15 years?” Dan Hwal replies, “For atonement. She committed a sin against my family. And it hasn’t been 15 years. It’s been a very long time.”
However, Dan Hwal comes across an unexpected obstacle when Min Sang Woon can’t remember what she did in the past. Furious, he vows, “Wait. I’ll get your memory back.”
The clip also sheds a light on Ok Eul Tae’s (Lee Joon’s) identity. He is described an extremely wealthy and powerful man whose identity is shrouded in mystery. He’s connected to Dan Hwal, and he is dangerously obsessed with locating Min Sang Woon. Ok Eul Tae tells Dan Hwal, “You and I aren’t enemies. The real enemy is that woman.”
As the story progresses, Dan Hwal’s hatred towards Min Sang Woon turns into love. One voice demands, “Did you get attached to the enemy who murdered your family?” Dan Hwal seems to have made up his mind as he is spotted protecting Min Sang Woon from someone. He firmly states, “You won’t die. I’ll protect you.”
