The Korean drama Mystic Pop-up Bar focuses on the journey of the three main characters, namely Wol Joo, Manager Gwi, and Kang-bae, who must find the last ten humans to help Wol Joo reincarnate.
www.weheartit.comIn the beginning, Wol Joo was only assisted by Manager Gwi, but fate said differently when the two of them met with Kang-bae who turned out to have special abilities, it appeared when Kang-bae was in contact with someone else, then at that moment everyone he touched would immediately vent about the problems of his life without stopping.
Wol Joo thinks Kang-bae ‘s ability can help her to find the last human remains. Herself was punished by a god to help 100,000 human souls as punishment for sinning in her past life. In the end, Kang-bae agreed to help Wol Joo with one condition, that she must eliminate Kang-bae’s ability in order to live a normal life. This is where the real story has just begun.
There are always exciting, eccentric, and also social issues in every episode of this K-Drama. The Korean drama Mystic Pop-up Bar has an atmosphere that is more or less the same as the Hotel de Luna (2019). Even so, the focus of the story in this drama is actually the relationship between the three main characters earlier. After watching after 8 episodes, the audience is not difficult to know that it was fate that led Kang-bae to Wol Joo and Manager Gwi.
From some rumors and conversations on the internet, Kang-bae is the son of Wol Joo and Manager Gwi. The Korean drama Mystic Pop-up Bar has been running for eight episodes and increasingly here the audience is directed at the possibility of Manager Gwi being the reincarnation of prince Joseon who is at once the true love of Wol Joo. The two of them actually fell in love with each other, but social class differences blocked their love.
And as discussed earlier, Wol Joo has two big sins. First, she killed herself in a sacred tree and made the Joseon kingdom lost the war until 100,000 innocent lives were killed. Meanwhile, their sins have not been revealed so far. However, there is a suspicion that Wol Joo’s second sin is killing the baby branch she is carrying and she is unaware of it. If this prediction is correct, then Kang-bae is most likely her son because she also has special abilities and similar attitudes with Manager Gwi, especially in the 8th episode when they both look at the moon.
