'Tale of the Nine-Tailed' Episode 15 promo sees Lee Yeon try his best to stop Ji-ah from sacrificing herself like Ae-eum did
'Tale of the Nine-Tailed' is in essence a story about a gumiho Lee Yeon (Lee Dong-wook) that regrets involving a human in his supernatural world and leading the love of his life Ae Eum (Ji-ah) to her death when she was forced to choose between him and herself. An Imoogi had taken her body over in the garb of letting her family escape from its clutches but the Imoogi had alway planned to use Ae Eum to finds its way to Lee Yeon and use his relationship with Ae Eum to barter the gumiho's power as a forest spirit in return for Ae Eum's safety.
The Imoogi almost succeeds in convincing Lee Yeon to give up his life and power, however, Ae Eun interferes and sacrifices herself by calling on the one favor that the gumiho owes Ae Eum for having saved his life once. This time too, Ji-ah who is a reincarnation of Ae Eum wants to kill herself so that she doesn't end up hurting the people she loves. However, Lee Yeon understands how this could take place and so he has come up with a plan that involves his sacrifice and not hers.
He decides to let the Imoogi take over his body and then enter the Underworld where the Samdo River is so that he can drown himself and the Imoogi in the river. Of course, he cannot be reborn if he were to die by drowning in the river and that is something that Taluipa had already mentioned to Lee Yeon. Lee Rang is also aware that his brother is up to no good and that is why when Lee Yeon had asked for his help, Lee Rang had said that he will concentrate on saving Lee Yeon and Yu-ri while Lee Yeon can think of saving Ji-ah.
Turns out Lee Rang has no intention of helping Lee Yeon save Ji-ah, especially not if it puts his brother's life in danger. However, Lee Yeon is convinced that he cannot be the reason for Ji-ah's death and live through years fo regret again. So he has decided and not anyone can change his mind. Even Shin-joo, his loyal follower tries to beg Lee Yeon to change his mind but he is unable to and we also see Lee Yeon confront Imoogi at Taluipa's office. So we cannot wait to see how things will pan out in the finale week.
'Tale of the Nine-Tailed' will be aired on tvN on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10.30 pm KST and can be streamed on Viki Global.
