Drama Rating: 10/10
Cha Dae Woong is a young mischievous man who ran away from this grandfather due to certain circumstances, in the process of his escape, he accidentally frees a Gumiho (nine-tailed fox) trapped in a painting for 500 years. It was too late when he realized what happened and in his fear, he also tried to run away from the creature which took the form of a beautiful woman. However, he became severely injured and because the Gumiho was grateful for being set free by him, she saved his life by sharing her life force to him. After the incident, the Gumiho has stayed close by Dae Woong for the reason that she had to guard her bead – which was her life force and source of power that she had transferred to him. She also wanted to get by in the modern world and wanted to learn the ways of the people. As time passed by, no matter how annoyed Dae Woong is with the Gumiho’s constant presence, they both slowly start to fall for each other.
What I love about this drama is the prettiness of Shin Min Ah. It’s as if she doesn’t age at all or more like she keeps getting younger and younger as she grows older. If that even makes sense? Her role here is fresh and cute that I couldn’t take off my eyes on the screen because it’s too unbelievable even if she’s supposed to be a fox. Aside this, the story line is very very amusing. Episode per episode would just send you off smiling and laughing with all those hilarious moments the main characters gets into. This isn’t your typical romantic comedy where girl loves boy and boy falls for girl… it’s different because the girl is a fox and the boy is human. Then mix in different immortal beings of the world in the picture, like for example a goddess, a goblin and a human half goblin… yeah. Underworld creatures and immortals are invading the story line but it’s what makes it more interesting. Not to forget the OST, it adds to the whole concept of the drama: cuteness, hilarity and love in whatever kind of form.
