The preview of the upcoming episode reveals that manager Kim Dal and high priest Lembrary (Woo Yeon Woo) will be involved in a ‘scandal’ which can put K-pop group Wild Animal’s reputation in jeopardy making their music career take a nosedive.

While the couple is navigating their feelings and more, Dal’s involvement in an idol’s attempted self-harm will become public knowledge making the manager’s life more difficult.

Meanwhile, the Devil is making his presence known in the human world and putting more people’s lives in danger which makes the high priest question if his presence can actually help the humans.

The ultimate goal of Shin Jo Woon (the devil) is to ensure high priest Lembrary’s death in the human world and as the latter becomes weak seeing so much devastation around, the last few episodes will be crucial to see how Lembrary can make his comeback saving the human world.


The Heavenly Idol has maintained its ratings from the start. The last two episodes of the drama scored average viewership ratings of 1.296% in South Korea, Nielsen Chart says.

Internationally, The Heavenly Idol has got 7.4 on IMDb and 8.1 on MyDramaList.
