Kkok Du, once a mortal man in ancient Korea, is now an immortal reaper, revisiting the mortal world every 99 years to punish human weaknesses. His millennia-long existence has hardened him, cultivating a ruthless disdain for humans. During his latest visit, Kkok Du inhabits the body of a gifted young doctor named Do Jin Woo. However, his mission becomes intricate when he must perform Jin Woo's medical duties. In an unexpected twist, Kkok Du encounters Han Gye Jeol, a doctor from a lesser-known school, yet harboring enigmatic powers that captivate him. Are their destinies intertwined from a past life, and why does she wield such influence over him? As Kkok Du grapples with his task, he finds himself increasingly drawn to Gye Jeol, facing a daunting choice: fulfill his duty or risk everything for love. (Source: MyDramaList) Edit Translation

if you watch it for enjoying, you will enjoy it

Kim Jung Hyun is truly agreat actor. I could listen to his voice for years. Every emotion he portrayed was well done.
Besides from him, I liked all the cast. All of them did great job imo.


Im soo hyang's character was so new in kdrama land and realistic.

This drama will make you laugh and cry. It's a funny, romcom, tragic and fantasy drama.

When you are watching, you feel like you are watching a fairy tale.


I loved this drama and i think some people are so unfair to it. It had its own charm!


I'm glad the evil character had less screen time. I personally couldn't stand seeing him even a bit more.

The Four Seasons of Relationships

It's a story about the four seasons of relationships. From Spring to Summer to Fall to Winter, and back to Spring signifying new beginnings, new hope, and a brighter future.

I talked about the Four Seasons of Relationships here: https://mydramalist.com/discussions/the-season-of-kokdoo/91869-the-four-seasons-of-relationships

But, to add to that, I love how in Episode 15 and 16, they revealed additional layers into the meaning of the Seasons.

For example, their Korean names have a meaning if you know the Hanja equivalent.

1. FL in the past: Seol Hui
- Hangul: 설희
- Hanja: 雪希 which means snow.

2. FL in 2023: Han Gye Jeol
- Hangul: 한계절
- 계절 in Hanja is: 季節 which means ‘season’
- According to Kokdu, her name means Spring. Or, something that was in Winter (her past self) that reached Spring, the changing of Seasons (her 2023 name).

The FL's past and 2023 names are tied to each other. They were never meant to be together in the past, because that past was the beginning of their winter fate.

However, when she was reborn in the present time, she was given the name Gye Jeol. A sign that the winter __season__ is about to end, and the a new __season__ is going to begin. New beginnings. New hope.

And as Kokdu realised, her names mean exactly that. Winter to Spring seasons. From dark and cold, to bright/light and warm.

3. ML in the past: Oh Hyun
- Hangul: 오현 - means "five strings". -- He came back after 5 years.
- Hanja: 傲泫

There are many possible Hanja to his name, but the Hangul itself already has a meaning.

I tried to find other references to five, but found none. The strings can mean fate.

Other Hanja variations of 오 are "to meet", or "bright"; "crow", "black".

Other Hanja variations of 현 are "wepp", or "swift", or "bow string", or "black".

If we consider the possible Hanja characters and meanings, a picture starts to form why he was named Oh Hyun in the past, and why everything ended up the way it all did.

And let's be reminded, Kokdu is Oh Hyun stuck as a god of the afterlife. It still is his name, so, he's living true as Oh Hyun.

4. ML as a god: Kokdu
- Hangul: 꼭두의
- Hanja: n/a

I think there's no need to speculate on Kokdu.


Another good thing. The ending was not something expected. There were similar supernatural romance before, and usually they have similar endings. This TV series chose a path less shown in K-dramas.
