Dramas with fantasy elements are on the trend these days and it looks like we’ve got a new addition with tvN’s Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter.
The drama is based on a webtoon about a fairy who’s trapped in this world because her fairy clothes were taken by a man and hidden. She eventually married the man, but he died after falling from a precipice. She then waits for her husband to be reincarnated to get her fairy clothes. In the modern times, she’s a barista who to ordinary people appears as a grandmother but retains her youthful appearance in front of certain people with whom she has a special connection. Kang So-ra (Revolutionary Love) has been offered the role of the fairy while Yoon Hyun-min (Witch’s Court) has been tapped for an unspecified role. I’m really liking the story’s premise because it appears similar to that of Goblin only with gender roles reversed. I also love Kang So-ra in whatever she does despite her recent lackluster dramas. I also see Yoon Hyun-min a reliable leading man but isn’t he also courted for the drama in which Yoon Eun-hye will potentially star in?
Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter is expected to air this year.
