Dae Ung is a spoiled rich boy who dreams of being an action movie star and spends his time making viral videos with his friends and attending auditions. However, when his grandfather discovers he's spent his college tuition on a motorcycle and free meals for his mooching group of friends, Dae Ung is forced to return home. He escapes however, and as he looks for a place to lay low, he ends up at an old temple where a mysterious woman's voice beckons him through his cellphone towards a painting of a fox, on which he is to draw nine tails. In doing so, Dae Ung releases a centuries-old gumiho (nine-tailed fox) who was trapped and she forces him to become her boyfriend and care for her every need, or else!

The Drama started off REALLY good. I was caught by the story, because it was connected to some lovely korean tales. There is some kind of painting and for some reason, a Gumiho (nine tailed fox) is caught in there. The main guy happens to free that girl and now she chases him for food and tells him, she would kill him if he didn't do what she wanted. Now here is where the fun story begins: Will he do everything she wants?

The characters were fun to watch. I like how Ung-ah is egoistic and how Mi Ho seems to see the world like an alien. They were really cute together and I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow. The story itself didn't get too bad, I just was annoyed by a few points:

First of all, that Nuna from Ung-ah is just really really really REALLY annoying. She is BEYOND every other side-girl in every other drama. I just started to hate her so much, I couldn't even watch her scenes properly and that made watching the drama as a whole seem like hard work. I got tired of her face and her acts and was just happy, when a scene with her was over.

Secondly, how can they make "Min U" talk like THAT. He really is great and he portrays his character well, but I got annoyed at how randomly-soft and randomly-sad his voice sounded. Not to talk about that teary eyes all the time.

Then also, WTH is wrong with these characters?! At some point of the story I couldn't follow their thoughts and was helpless at how to think of their actions. Why did Ung-ah do this and why is he doing the opposite from that now? Why does Mi Ho know this and do that? From Episode 12 on I couldn't really follow their feelings, so that's why this drama lost a lot of potential for a masterpiece.

Last but not least: I was really really REALLY disappointed with the ending. I already smelled a bad ending at episode 5, but what they presented me was way beyond everything I thought of an "ok ending". It was as if the Hong-sisters tried to run away from an explanation WHY everything happend like it has happened... That really made the drama bad. If you like dramatical stuff you might probably like this (and the Nuna).

Still, the characters were cute, so I can't bring myself to rate it only good. Also, the music was LOVELY. I really need that soundtrack, since I had some songs from the drama stuck in my head a whole week while waiting for the next episode.

In both, a supernatural being struggles with being in love, as his/her choice to stay with the loved one may lead to his/her own death. In both, the loved one is a human.

Both are based on Asian fox legends and are about a fox falling in love with a human.

This is one of the funniest dramas ever! You really cannot predict what's going to happen next!!!
I really laughed a lot, but cried a bit 'cause it was moving at times.
I hope it would never end!!
I loved the main characters and shipped them so much!!
I disliked Hye In (Noona) and Teacher Dong Ju from the beginning, but anyway...
Excellent plot, not dragging at all, excellent performances (except Teacher Dong Ju's), excellent OST.
The ending was nice, too!
Highly recommended!! (I didn't believe it myself before, but it's true!)
Masterpiece: 5/5

@ally I'm afraid the problem lies with us. I was also disappointed with this and seeing lots of people deem this "a must watch" makes me think that maybe we just missed something.

For me this was supposed to be a masterpiece. I like the mains, I like (most of) the supporting cast, I like the screenwriters. Acting was also good and I liked most of the characters. But it just didn't click for me. For me this was not a romantic comedy but a very moody drama ride. Fun ended 2 episodes in and I kept being disappointed, annoyed, sad, and kept taking breaks to finish this.

I was generally happy with the acting of everyone except Miss Park Su Jin who I could not decide if she was a bad actor or a good actor trapped in a badly written role. I fear she is cursed (tho I only saw her in 2 dramas, both were like this) with badly written roles.

Right now I am happy I finally finished this but I do not think this will a series that I watch again and again.

This drama was supposed to be funny, comical and cute, but failed miserably. Well, at least for me.
The drama is centered in the relationship of the gumiho and Dong Woo, the cuteness and the innocence of the gumiho which, for me, faded in the first episodes and turned into utter annoyance. The storyline itself lacked big time.
And the other actors didn't helped either, they weren't memorable nor anything.

Its my favorite dorama,have a addictive history,good actors,the OST is great.

One of the best I've seen so far. I really enjoyed it, I finished the entire drama in 3 days. The OST is amazing, the plot is funny, interesting, dramatic, romantic...more, than I ever expected. This is going to be one of my favourites. I really liked the ending, and the main characters are adorable.
Except Hye In...I really hated her. (When she kissed Dae Ung I wanted to slap her) :D So I guess, she is a good actress, she made me hate her character.

Worth watching! Must see drama!

Really cute drama and a really sweet soundtrack.

I stayed away from this series at first because after seeing Shinning Inheritance and a bit of the King 2 hearts I really have not been a fan of Lee Seung Gi. However after seeing Sin Min A in Arang I really wanted to watch her other shows...and so I decided to try this. I am glad I did.
