Just like Myul Mang in “Doom At Your Service,” there are also a lot of powerful immortal beings in Korean dramaland. Here are 10 of the most prominent immortals.
1.) Myul Mang (Seo In Guk) — “Doom At Your Service”
• Age: Still Unknown
Myul Mang is the newest addition to the Korean drama immortals squad. His name literally means “doom,” and is introduced as a being who brings “destruction.”
2.) Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) — “Goblin”
Age: 939 years old
Kim Shin was actually a mortal who was punished with immortality. Originally born in the Goryeo era, he lived his life as a general who slaughtered many enemies. After his death, he got reincarnated as a Goblin, repenting daily on his past life’s previous sins.
3.) Jang Man Wol (IU / Lee Ji Eun) — “Hotel del Luna”
Age: Over 1300 years old
Man Wol is the owner of Hotel del Luna, a place that serves as a stopover for spirits before they cross to the other side. The hotel serves as Man Wol’s atonement for the people she killed. Man Wol is unable to escape Hotel del Luna, as the place follows her wherever she goes.
4.) The Grimreaper (Lee Dong Wook) — “Goblin”
Age: Over 900 years old
Just like Kim Shin, the Grim Reaper (previously known as the Wang Yeo, the King) also got reincarnated to pay for his wrongdoings. However, unlike Kim Shin, the Grimrepear does not recall his past life’s memories.
5.) Son Oh Gong (Lee Seung Gi) — “Hwayugi”
Age: Thousands of years old
Also known as The Great Sage Equal to Heaven, Son Oh Gong is a powerful being who had his powers sealed and was exiled to the human world. He was set free by a human girl, who also became the person who — somehow — imprisons him again.
6.) Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun) — “My Love From The Star”
(Earth) Age: 400 years old
An alien who got left behind by his co-species for over 400 years, Do Min Joon got stuck on Earth and decided to live different lives as an ordinary human while waiting for a chance to go back to his home planet.
7.) Wol Ju (Hwang Jung Eum) — “Mystic Pop-up Bar”
Age: Over 500 years old
Wol Ju may seem like an ordinary owner of a late-night snack bar, but she’s actually a mystic being who heals souls through their dreams.
8.) Mi Ho (Shin Min Ah) — “My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho”
Age: (sealed for over) 500 years old
Mi Ho was sealed inside an ancient painting for 500 years. Desperate to break get out, she asked for a young man’s help which resulted to him almost losing his life. In return, Miho gave him her fox bead to keep him alive.
9-10.) Lee Yeon and Lee Rang (Lee Dong Wook and Kim Bum) — “Tale Of The Nine-Tailed”
Ages: Over 1000 years old and 600 years old, respectively
The gumiho brothers, Lee Yeon and Lee Rang, have lived on Earth for hundreds of years for different purposes. Lee Yeon is hoping to find the reincarnation of his first love, while Lee Rang is seeking for revenge — but is actually just yearning for his brother’s attention.
