Second Trailer Review

Where are we, Mother Fox

Am a total wimp, I would never watch a horror drama, or anything scary unless am with someone else but alas no one would watch this drama with me *cries* and this is an Asian horror drama as well. Its okay though I survived the first episode without wetting myself. =_= Gumiho was not like most Korean dramas nor was it such a scary drama. There was a lot of human bonding and they mixed scary and compassion pretty well. At the start of the first episode there was certain moments where I thought the story wasn’t flowing as it skipped from one scene to another pretty quickly but then slowly everything started to fit and it had a nice storyline going on.

Dont stare for too long, its creepy

I really did enjoy this drama, the acting was very good especially from the girl who played Yeon. Han Eun Jungs (“full house”) acting was really good too but Yeon felt more like a main character. Am sure  we will get more scenes just with  Eun Jung much more  later. Her Transformation to the Gumiho was scary and very realistic. There was no fake looking Gumiho and it looked very realistic. There was also a major change to her character when she transforms. When she is human, she seems kind and gental but as soon as she becomes a Gumiho she has this sudden evil look about her.

The ringing, where is it coming from

I really enjoyed the first episode. It was really good and it ended to a total cliff hanger. This drama is not just a creepy show about some women who is out for revenge. Its about Human relationships. What people do for the ones they love. Its full of compassion, prejudice, jealousy, friendship  and betrayal. This drama is the one to watch this summer.
