It is in the role of the gumiho, a mythical creature of stunning beauty known to enchant humans, that Jang Ki Yong enters the scene. Based on a popular webtoon of the same name, the Kdrama deals with the fascinating theme of a gumiho's pearl, which holds the key to the gumiho's ultimate transformation into a human, and which ends up in the mouth of a human.

It was in Go Back Couple, a series centered on a married couple in their thirties, Ma Jin Joo (Jang Nara) and Choi Ban Do (Son Ho Jun), on the verge of divorce that Jang Ki Yong was able to free himself from the image of “model turned actor”. As they decide to end their union and take off their wedding rings, a strange twist of fate sends them back to their student days. It is by reliving their youth that they rediscover the importance of a bond that they once took for granted. It is in the role of Jung Nam Gil, a star lecturer with seemingly perfect looks and background that Jang Ki Yong enters the scene.

The latter is Jin Joo's friend from college, and although she does not share his romantic feelings, he remains a constant source of silent support for her when life throws surprises at her. Jang Ki Yong masterfully captures Nam Gil's charm, hinting at the warmth beneath the surface with his calm yet romantic gaze.

Editor Seo Hayne says: “I like the actors because they carry out their actions faithfully throughout their performance. I also like idols who accomplish everything on stage in 3 minutes. »
