Kokdu: Season of Deity Plot & Synopsis
The plot of the drama follows Kkok Du, a male human, who was once living in ancient Korea. Once, he provoked the anger of God. As retribution for his behavior, he was transformed into a grim reaper. He is now an immortal reaper, summoned by the gods to visit the mortal world once every 99 years to punish people for their weakness and fragility cruelly. He has grown to hate others and is now ruthless and cruel. This time, he “possesses” the body of a brilliant young doctor called Do Jin Woo when he enters the mortal realm.
But when he has to carry out Do Jin Woo’s medical responsibilities, his goal of guiding souls to the afterlife is compromised. As a result, he meets Han Gye Jeol, a physician who earned her medical degree from South Korea’s lowest-ranked medical institution. Kok Du learns that Han Gye Jeol has magical powers despite her unimpressive past and appears to have him under her spell.
