New drama “The Heavenly Idol” has shared a fun first teaser!
Adapted from the popular webtoon and web novel, Heavenly Idol tells the story of High Priest Rembrary, who one day suddenly finds himself in the body of an unknown idol, Woo Yeon Woo, a member of the group Wild Animal. Kim Min Kyu will play High Priest Rembrary, while Go Bo Gyeol will play the role of Wild Animal’s manager and Woo Yeon Woo’s No. 1 fan Kim Dal.
The new teaser opens with Rembrary saying, “My name is Rembrary. Pontifex who serves God Redlin,” he claims to be a respected and powerful priest who cares for the people.
However, in the next scene, Pontifex Rembrary opens his eyes to suddenly find himself on stage in the middle of a live performance with the unpopular idol group Wild Animal. Embarrassed and at a loss as to what to do, the dignified priest looks lost as he clumsily covers his midriff with his hands and feels unfamiliar as he wears a crop top. An unnerved Rembrary then starts turning heads as he yells, “I don’t know how to dance!” creates a lot of chaos on the scene.
Soon after, the struggles become real as they comically try to learn a dance routine. When he returns home, he faces another terrible reality: he lives with four other men in a small and overcrowded dormitory. At the end of her long and confusing day, Rembrary slowly closes her eyes as she finally comes to terms with her new reality, “From now on, I’m Woo Yeon Woo’s unpopular idol.”
Check out the new teaser below!
