The first episode of The Heavenly Idol premiered on February 15, 2023. Since then, set to release 12 episodes in total, new episodes of the K-drama have been made available every Wednesday and Thursday.
The Heavenly Idol also known as Pontifex Rembrary/ High Priest Rembrary is a K-drama that is based on a web book created by Shin Hwan Jin titled ‘Holy Idol’ and features romance, fantasy, and K-pop. With all the best genres coming together, what else could one possibly ask for?
As the series is nearing its end, Episode 9 of The Heavenly Idol is set to release this week! Fans are eager to know what all events will occur in the lives of our High Priest as he tries to save the earth with his cheery fan who also happens to be his manager.
Our main character, Pontifex Rembrary (Kim Min Kyu), is regarded by many as having the most powerful divine power possible. Rembrary is held in the highest regard by the members of the cult since he is the High Priest of an otherworldly religion.
While in battle with the devil, he is suddenly transported to contemporary South Korea, where he exchanges souls with a mortal. Pontifex Rembrary gains control of Woo Yeon Woo’s body, a member of the unsuccessful idol group “Wild Beast,” and finds himself in a cramped dorm.
After having been together for almost three years, Woo Yeon Woo’s K-pop band was utterly failing. They were on the point of breaking up because of their lack of success. Rembrary, on the other hand, was completely ignorant of the K-pop scene altogether!
Kim Dal (Go Bo Gyeol), Woo Yeon Woo’s biggest fan, is determined on preventing his career from failing regardless of the fact that it seems like all hope is lost. As the group’s new manager, she takes control of supporting the group and gradually begins to alter the group’s course to a better future.
However, Rembrary is not the only person who has transitioned from the spirit realm into K-pop culture. A powerful chaotic force has also followed, in addition to many others. What all will unfold in The Heavenly Idol? Will the earth be spared from destruction by our strong cult leader and his new manager?
The Heavenly Idol Episode 8 Recap (Spoilers)
In Episode 8 of The Heavenly Idol, Rembrary needed assistance from Kim Dal to get ready for a date before going on a variety programme. Kim Dal objected, saying that a priest shouldn’t date in the first place.
As Kim Dal was afflicted by black magic, she was able to talk openly, which allowed her to admit her affections for Rembrary. She claimed that because Rembrary had looked after her, saved her life, and put his own life in danger for her, it was only natural for her to feel affection for him.
But Rembrary drew a line and attempted to make things clear by saying that they shouldn’t be misunderstood by one another.
He asked Kim Dal about her real feelings and reminded her that just the other day, she had claimed to have no feelings for him. Later on, Kim Dal admitted that she wished Rembrary would stay with her and not leave.
By the end of The Heavenly Idol Episode 8, Rembrary kissed Kim Dal’s forehead and used divine power to reassure himself that she didn’t like him just because of the magic, but that her feelings for him were real and true.
