Get ready for some major heartache on the next episode of MBC’s “Kokdu: Season of Deity”!
“Kokdu: Season of Deity” is a fantasy romance drama starring Kim Jung Hyun as Kokdu, a grim reaper who leaves the underworld every 99 years to punish humans in the mortal realm. During his latest trip, he winds up meeting Han Gye Jeol, a female doctor who has the mysterious ability to order him around (played by Im Soo Hyang).
Warning: mention of attempted suicide.
On the previous episode of “Kokdu: Season of Deity,” Kokdu became terrified that Han Gye Jeol’s tragic fate from her past life would repeat itself after her old hair pin found its way back into her hands. When the life of his younger brother Jung Yi Deun (Lee Jung Joon) fell in danger, Kokdu—now overwhelmed with guilt—made up his mind to protect those he loved by meeting his own end.
In an attempt to end his own life, Kokdu sought out Kim Pil Soo (Choi Kwang Il) and intentionally goaded him into stabbing his already wounded chest. The episode ended on a devastating cliffhanger, with Kokdu falling to the ground bleeding as his fate became uncertain.
In heartbreaking new stills from the drama’s upcoming episode, Kokdu spends a romantic day with an oblivious Han Gye Jeol while hiding the fact that his life is at risk. Hoping to enjoy an ordinary date with the woman he loves, Kokdu tries to playfully joke around with Han Gye Jeol and take selfies like a normal couple.
However, when the couple embraces and Han Gye Jeol can’t see his face, Kokdu’s expression darkens and reveals the immense pain he’s actually suffering.
To find out what lies in store for the seemingly star-crossed lovers, tune in to the next episode of “Kokdu: Season of Deity” on March 18 at 9:50 p.m. KST!
