tvN’s upcoming drama Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter (previously known as Gyeryong Fairy Tale) has released two posters featuring its leads Moon Chae-won (Criminal Minds) and Yoon Hyun-min (Witch’s Court) along with major supporting actors Seo Ji-hoon (My First Love) and gugudan’s Mina (20th Century Boy and Girl).
Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter is an adaptation of a popular webtoon of the same name about a 699-year old fairy named Sun Ock-nam (played by Moon Chae-won) who has been waiting for his husband while disguising in the modern world as a barista. Sun Ock-nam married a man during the Goryeo dynasty and suffered a major loss when he died. Since then, she’s lived through a couple of dynasties while waiting for her reincarnated husband to come back. At present, she manages a strange coffee shop where he meets two men, Yoon Hyun-min and Seo Ji-hoon, one of whom could be the reincarnated version of his late husband. She and his late husband have a daughter named Jum Soon, played by Mina, who has been reincarnated as a tiger in her new life but has managed to become a human through the help of his mother.
The poster above shows the four major characters in a photo with a family portrait concept, taken at a vintage photo studio. The poster below, meanwhile, is a similar photo that reveals the mysterious and true identities of Moon Chae-won’s and Mina’s characters who are now represented by an old woman (played by Go Doo-shim) and a tiger, respectively. The caption on both posters reads: “Who is my husband, the woodcutter who went missing 699 years ago?” The caption raises curiosity regarding whether Yoon Hyun-min’s or Seo Ji-hoon’s character is the real husband.
Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter will premiere on November 5, 2018, at 9 pm KST>
