My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox: Fast Facts

Director: Boo Sung Chul

Writers: Hong Jung Eun & Hong Mi Ran

Network: SBS

Episodes: 16

Official Website: http://tv.sbs.co.kr/mygumiho/


On one stormy night, Cha Dae Woong accidentally freed a nine-tailed fox who was sealed in a painting for 500 years. He did not realize what he has done though, until the nine-tailed fox (Gumiho) who took the form of a beautiful human appeared in front of him. Cha Dae Woong was so scared that he ran away and fell on the riverbank. He was severely injured so Gumiho came to save him and gave her most precious bead to share with him the mystic fox' strength, as she owes him her freedom. Gumiho then asked him if he can help her become human and how to act like one. In return, she will allow him to use her bead for 100 days- more than enough time for him to shoot for his dream action movie despite his body's severe condition.

As time goes by, their mutual relationship grew deeper as they start to fall for each other. However, for Gumiho to become human seems to have a serious consequence which they later have to face.
