This Korean drama is about an irresponsible man, Cha Dae Woong, who accidentally releases Mi Ho, a nine-tailed fox, from the painting she was trapped inside of for 500 years. Thinking that she was a ghost, Dae Woong fled in fear and tumbles down off a ledge into a creek. Feeling grateful to the human, the gumiho gives Dae Woong her invaluable fox bead to save his life. Without the bead, he would have died. With the fox bead in Dae Woong's body, he feels no pain, had full range of movement, and is stronger than normal.

While the bead remains in the human's body, Mi Ho follows him around to make sure that her bead isn't damaged. It doesn't take long for her to develop feelings for him, but he has another girl, Eun Hye In (Park Soo Jin) that he likes.

Due to false rumors of jealous women centuries ago, Dae Woong believes that nine-tailed foxes eat human livers. Mi Ho doesn't exactly help assuage his fears as she threatens to eat him if he doesn't buy her meat.

Despite Dae Woong's fears, he slowly falls in love with Gu Mi Ho, but has a strong sense of denial. How can he tell her that he likes her, when he can't even admit it to himself?

Because of her feelings for Cha Dae Woong, Mi Ho, decides to become human so that she can be with him. However, Park Dong Ju (No Min Woo) has ulterior motives when he tells Mi Ho what she has to do to become human. He leaves out the important fact that at the end of the 100 days, Dae Woong will die when she becomes a human.

What happens when Dae Woong and Mi Ho discover that Dae Woong has to die for Mi Ho to become human?

If you had to choose between love and your dream, which would you choose?

Lee Seung Gi as Cha Dae Woong

Cha Dae Woong lost both of his parents when he was young and was raised by his rich grandfather and aunt. In trouble for spending too much money again and being irresponsible, Cha Dae Woong's grandfather is angry with him. However, Dae Woong has trouble taking responsibility, so he manages to escape and ends up at a temple. Hearing Gu Mi Ho's voice, but unable to see her, Dae Woong is frightened into drawing nine tails onto a painting in the temple. Finally, he is able to see the gumiho in the form of a beautiful human. Because Dae Woong is worried she will eat his liver, he moves in with her and supports her.

Shin Min Ah as Gu Mi Ho

Mi Ho is a playful and curious mystical creature who has had a long desire to become human. 500 years ago, she was given the chance to become human if she found a husband that truly loves her. Unfortunately, the other women spread nasty rumors about the nine-tailed fox, because of their jealousy. As a result Mi Ho was trapped inside of a painting. Falling in love with Dae Woong, Mi Ho's desire to become human is only strengthened.

No Min Woo as Park Dong Ju

Park Dong Ju is half goblin and half human veterinarian who never lives in one place for too long. He has a very negative opinion of humans and therefore does not have any relationships with them. The monk from the temple where Mi Ho was freed calls Dong Ju to inform him that she's missing. Dong Ju hunts down the gumiho to return her to the painting. But, when he sees her she reminds him of Kil Dal, a gumiho he was in love with a thousand years ago. Park Dong Ju gives Gu Mi Ho two choices. Allow him to kill her or become human so she can live. The true cost of becoming human, Dae Woong's death, Dong Ju keeps a secret.
