My Girlfriend is a Nine Tailed Fox Review

Cha Dae-wung, played by Lee, accidently wakes up the legendary gumiho, or the nine-tailed fox, that seeks revenge and lives on human flesh and livers. Surprisingly, the fox/human is nothing like the legendary character that appears in ghost stories, but a cute and clueless girl who prefers hanwoo, homegrown cattle beef, and is searching for true love with a man who will love her despite her haunting condition. Dae Woong  tries to keep her happy and hide the fact that she is a gumiho from everyone. As the story goes on, the legendary gumiho (later called Miho) wants to be human. Miho is informed by a veterinarian named Park Dong Joo (who is also not a human) that she must drink his blood to become a human in 100 days while Dae Woong will have to keep her magical fox bead meanwhile. Moreover, Dae Woong will not be able to date anyone else but gumiho within the 100 days. However, Dong Joo doesn’t tell Miho one important detail  and trouble brews as Miho and Dae Woong eventually fall in love….

Drama Crazy –


~Lee Seung Gi as Cha Dae Woong~

Lee Seung Gi as Cha Dae Woong,

Lee Seung Gi as Cha Dae Woong,

He is the protagonist of the drama, he is a spoiled young man (in his 20s) who lost both of his parents at a very young age and has been with his grandfather and aunt for more than 20 years. He is not interested in going to college; instead, he wants to be an actor. When his grandfather tries to take him to a boarding school, Dae Woong escapes and eventually gets lost. A woman’s voice tells him to draw nine tails on a drawing of a fox at a Buddhist temple and in doing so he accidentally releases it. He meets a girl who informs him that she is the fox he released. He finds out that she is a gumiho (later called Miho) so he ends up trying to keep her happy (mostly by buying her meat) and hide the fact that she is a gumiho from everyone else. (wiki)

At first while I was watching the drama, Dae Woong was so annoying and such a spoilt brat. I also disliked how mean he was to Miho. Thankfully he started to change due to the sudden feelings he developed for Miho. They were really cute together. I love how his character developed, it made him more likeable at the end. I think the actor did a good job but I do think Shin Min Ah, the main actress out shined him at times. However I do think he did a great job and at then end of the drama I fell for his acting and would love to see another drama with him in it.

~Shin Min Ah as Gu Miho (Miho)~

Shin Min Ah as Gu Miho (Miho)

Shin Min Ah as Gu Miho (Miho)

Miho a legendary nine-tailed fox that has been stuck inside a painting for 500 years. Miho is the female protagonist. She dreams of becoming a human and has always wanted to do things humans do. However, when people heard rumors that gumihos eat human livers, no one would go near her. When she meets Dae Woong, she starts to feel like she is human but sometimes exerts her superhuman strength when no one, except for Dae Woong, is around (she was once seen by two children at a park). She becomes Dae Woong’s girlfriend and tries to mold their relationship into a normal girlfriend-boyfriend one. Despite the fact that gumihos are fercious, she is more like the cute and nice type. Since she was made of fire, she is afraid of water.

I adored Minho. She was so cute!!! Honestly she just used to me go Waa all the time. I loved her! She had the cutest personality I have ever seen in the drama. The actress playing her is so pretty and she has these dimples that I just want to poke. She is also so innocent. The expressions she does, her acting and her character, they were just all really good. She is one of those characters that you will always remember due to the way she is a bit like the drama “Your Beautiful” Characters.

~No Min Woo As Park Dong Joo~

No Min Woo As Park Dong Joo

No Min Woo As Park Dong Joo

Dong Joo, a veterinarian at an animal hospital, he is not human either, though his true identity is unknown and he knows a lot of things about human life. Doong Joo is shown to be the antagonist. He tends to speak in a calm way to Miho, but doesn’t seem to be that way to other people. He tried to capture Miho and put her back inside the painting, but when Miho tells him that she wants to become a human, he changes his mind. He is also the one who brings the twist in the story.

If any of you have watched the Korean drama Pasta, you will know who the actor is. Also if you know the band The Trax, he was a former member. He is so pretty! Honestly through out the drama, whenever he came on I just thought he was so pretty, he almost looked like a girl. His character was manageable. Manageable meaning that you know he is always up to something and since I liked Minho so much I was always there going ” No No dont hurt her! Shes so cute! ” Throughout  the drama you will want to know who he is and his story. Pretty mysterious and dark character. I really start to like him in the middle of the drama. He really opens up, at times I did think he was wimp but felt sorry for his character. The acting was also really good.  Min woo plays a brooding character really well.

~Park Soo Jin as Eun Hye In~

Park Soo Jin as Eun Hye In

Park Soo Jin as Eun Hye In

Hye In is the female antagonist of the drama, she is Dae Woong’s senior. She and Dae Woong had strong feelings for each other for a long time. Hye In doesn’t like Miho, she knows Miho’s difference so she tries to do whatever she can to find out Miho’s true identity.

Gah I hated this girl. She was really annoying and every time she came on screen I wanted to smack her one on the face..she kept trying to ruin Dae Woong and MiHo’s relationship. She was also a really mean person. I might be biased due to my love for Miho but I disliked her. Of course the actress, Park Soo Jin did a great job at playing as an evil annoying..B****>_<

Other Characters

~Sung Dong Il as Ban Doo Hong~

He is  the director of Dae Woong’s action school. He is so fond of Dae Woong’s skills and gives him special treats. When he sees Miho jump high and run fast, he looks for her, and whenever he finds her, she runs away without noticing him. He is eventually seen by Miho, but he doesn’t see her. He also has feelings for Dae Woong’s aunt, Cha Min Sook. He is also widowed, as he has said that he raised Seon Nyuh by himself.

Hehe the aunty and the director were so funny! He is so weird but so funny I loved the moments when both of them meant. I would laugh for ages.

~Hyo Min as Ban Seon Nyuh~

Seon Nyuh is  Doo Hong’s daughter and Dae Woong’s best friend. She has feelings for Dae Woong but doesn’t seem overtly jealous over the fact that Miho is his girlfriend, even though she seems heartbroken at times. She also seems to have become good friends with Miho.

Hyo Min is a good actress. Her parts were pretty good. Very pretty but the character she played in this drama is pretty immature.

~Byeon Hee-Bong as Dae Woong’s Grandfather~

He wants Dae Woong to make the right choices in life but accepts his dream of becoming an actor after seeing him mature. I loved the grandfather! He was one of those strict but tough love style characters. His so nice..

~Yoon Yoo Sun as Cha Min Sook~

Cha Min Sook is Dae Woong’s aunt. She does whatever Dae Woong’s grandfather tells her to do. She has feelings for Ban Doo Hong but has never been able to tell him. She often ends up making a fool of herself while in the presence of her crush.  Yep she was so funny, she made me laugh a lot.

~Kim Ho Chang as Kim Byung Soo~

Kim Byung Soo is Dae Woong’s other best friend. He is supportive of Dae Woong. He has feelings for Seon Nyuh but Seon Nyuh doesn’t seem to know.  Through out the drama is was a pretty good friend to Doe Woong and he never used to him. So he was awesome.


The Hong sisters ,Hong Jung-eun, Hong Mi-ran, wrote the script to this fabulous drama. You may know them from the drama Your Beautiful, Hong Gil Dong and Delightful girl.

This drama was simply a delight to watch. Its so funny and entertaining and the storyline is really original. The Hong sisters really know how to write an entertaining  drama with its loveable characters,  fast paced storyline, great scenes, adorable moments this drama has it all.

The characters in this drama were really good and the actors and actresses did a great job in displaying their emotions and facial expression. As with Your Beautiful even though some of the parts were really silly and cliché it was a lot of fun to watch.  The chemistry between the mail leads is shown gradually. At first you could see the dislike the main characters feel for each other and you also see the change when they start to fall for each other. You actually want them to be together in real life. The chemistry was really strong. Even the antagonists of the drama did a great job of portraying their characters. The side characters especially the director and the Auntie brought the drama together. I believe if the side characters were not there the drama may not have been as funny. I loved the whole supernatural element of it. The fact that she is something that most people would never believe in (nine tailed fox) and also the fact that she is a legend.  I think this drama would make a really good movie as well.

This drama is a pure comedy which will have you in fits of laughter. This drama will also bring many other emotions out of you, At times I was in state of shock , tears and happiness while watching this drama. Its so unpredictable and with things happening that you do not expect.  The scenes between the main characters were so cute! I nearly died from the sweetness of it all.  After each episode I could not wait to watch the next one due to the ending being such a cliff hanger. It kept me at the end of my seat making me want more.

This drama is so well rounded. It has no holes, there is nothing that will make you feel disappointed in it. Its an amazing drama and Its a must watch in my list. So if you have no watched it yet I believe you should really watch it before start any other drama. I Highly recommend this  drama.
