Based on a well-liked webtoon and internet novel, “The Heavenly Idol” is a fantasy drama starring Kim Min Kyu as High Priest Rembrary, who all of the sudden wakes up sooner or later to search out himself within the physique of Woo Yeon Woo, a member of the unsuccessful idol group Wild Animal.
Go Bo Gyeol will star within the drama as Kim Dal, Woo Yeon Woo’s No. 1 fan. When her bias all of the sudden begins insisting within the fifth 12 months of his profession that he’s really High Priest Rembrary, she winds up changing into Wild Animal’s supervisor in an effort to save him.
Describing what it was prefer to work with Go Bo Gyeol, Kim Min Kyu recalled, “She seemed very unique and eccentric. I’m the type to joke around a lot, and she’s a very understanding person who’s good at going along with my jokes.”
The reward for his co-star didn’t finish there. Kim Min Kyu went on so as to add, “Bo Gyeol has a really sincere and admirable approach and mindset when it comes to acting. I initially thought that she was someone who’s just cheerful and bubbly all the time, but she also has a serious charm that’s the complete opposite of that. I have a lot to learn from her.”
Go Bo Gyeol equally spoke positively of her expertise working with Kim Min Kyu, remarking, “Even though he’s younger than I am, he seemed mature. But the more I got to know him, the more I was surprised by how bubbly and pleasant he was. How should I put it? It’s like he has a talent for making people feel comfortable. He’s someone who’d get along with anyone, anywhere. He’s also a mood maker who brightens up the atmosphere on set by dancing the moonwalk whenever he has a chance between [takes].”
Describing her character within the drama, Go Bo Gyeol mentioned, “Dal is the cool career woman type. She’s good at her job, she’s mature, and she’s also humorous to boot. She has a lot of pride in her work, but it all comes crashing down in one instant. While living like that, she winds up meeting Rembrary, and the two grow and mature together. I think that journey of growth is one of the key points to keep an eye on [in our drama].”
Meanwhile, Kim Min Kyu defined, “Rembrary, who ends up in Woo Yeon Woo’s body, was a high priest in a different universe. One day, he winds up switching souls with Woo Yeon Woo due to the devil’s sorcery. [The drama] tells the story of what happens after he wakes up as a member of the unsuccessful idol group Wild Animal, but even in a different body, he remains faithful to his duty as a high priest, and he considers that the most important goal in his life.”
