Kim Nam Gil will be playing Pan, a tragic character who confronts evil in preparation for the world’s end but can’t be together with humans. Born with the fate of having to protect the world, Pan struggles to discover the value of what he has to protect while throwing himself away whereas Lee Da Hee will be taking the role of a third-generation chaebol and teacher Won Mi Ho. Unaware of her fate, Won Mi Ho unwillingly begins a self-reflection period on Jeju Island.

ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo will be transforming into the hip Catholic exorcist and priest named John, who has a noble calling of protecting lives and purifying evil. However, he’s also a figure who harbors a horrible and dark past.  Sung Joon will be taking on the role Goong Tan, who was raised to take care of evil with Pan. However, after a fateful event, Goong Tan begins to oppose Pan, adding an exhilarating twist and suspense to the story.

With the star-studded lineup of the four leading actors and a refreshingly unique story, the drama will excitingly reinterpret the legends and fables of the beautiful Jeju Island with a modern twist. However, all the actors are best-known for their works in various films and dramas.

Kim Nam Gil has showcased his wide acting spectrum with The Fiery Priest, Live Up to Your Name, The Shameless, and more is making viewers already look forward to how will portray his character’s complex emotions. Lee Da Hee has previously impressed with her roles in L.U.C.A.: The Beginning, Search: WWW and Beauty Inside, so anticipation has grown for her upcoming chemistry with Kim Nam Gil.

Sung Joon’s impactful and memorable acting work includes The Grotesque Mansion, The Villainess, and High Society.
