On January 27, 2023, Kim Jung Hyun and Im Soo Hyang will be in the drama series The Season of Kokdu. The MBC TV drama The Season of Kokdu revolves around a romance between Han Gye Jeol (Im Soo Hyang), a doctor having mysterious powers, and Kokdu (Kim Jeong Hyun), a god of death who visits this earth every 99 years to punish humans. Tae Jeong Won is the wife’s name, played by Kim Da Som of the group Sistar, while Han Cheol is the younger brother and detective, played by Ahn Woo Yeon.
Kim In Kwon is separated into “Oksin,” who helps Kokdu, and Cha Chung Hwa is split into “Gaksin,” who has a sharp mind. Jung Eon, who was once dating Hang Gye Jeol, is portrayed by Lee Jung Joon. The original cast member Lee Ji Han was replaced by Lee Jung Joon after he died in the Itaewon disaster.
After a year and six months after the controversies surrounding his personal life, Kim Jung Hyun is returning to the drama stage. Health issues caused him to withdraw from the MBC TV drama Time (2018), and it was claimed that this was also the cause of the controversy surrounding his attitude during filming. He returned a year or so later and subsequently starred in Mr Queen (2020–2021) and Crash Landing on You (2019–2020), although he then took a break from acting due to the incident.
With major roles in the television shows New Tales of Gisaeng (2011) and Inspiring Generation (2014), Im Soo Hyang became well-known. Her performances in the 2018 campus romance My ID is Gangnam Beauty and the blockbuster mystery drama Graceful Family (2019), which followed many supporting roles, earned her worldwide recognition. In the following years, Im Soo Hyang appeared in films, including Woori the Virgin (2022), When I Was the Most Beautiful (2020), and Doctor Lawyer (2022).
