Review: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

Cha Dae-woong (Lee Seung-Gi) is a normal college student, with ambitions of becoming an action star. Until one day, he accidentally releases a gumiho (Shin Min-ah), a legendary fox with nine tails who was sealed inside a painting by Samshin Grandmother. Fleeing the scene, Dae-woong suffers a life-threatening fall and is only saved by the gumiho giving him her “fox bead”. When Dae-woong awakes and meets a mysterious and very beautiful girl, he initially treats her as eccentric or mentally ill, before finally understanding that she is a gumiho in human form. According to myth, gumihos eat men’s livers, so Dae-woong is scared out of his wits, and the gumiho takes advantage of his fear by sticking by his side. He names her “Mi-ho,” and keeps her happy by buying her beef and hiding her true identity. Mi-ho wants nothing more than to become human, so they strike a deal: she’ll lend him her mystical fox bead so that with his increased speed and strength, he’ll be able to do difficult stunts, and in exchange, he’ll help her become human. As time passes, they get to know each other better and Dae-woong is charmed by how Mi-ho looks at the world with childlike wonder.

Enter Park Dong-joo (No Min-woo), a half-human, half-supernatural being, whose cover identity is a working veterinarian. Dong-joo tells Mi-ho that she’ll be able to turn human if she follows these instructions: She must drink Dong-joo’s blood then place her fox bead inside a human’s body for 100 days. Once she does this, her supernatural self will start to die, gradually. Her gumiho energy will slowly empty away while her bead will live in the human for 100 days and take in his energy. And when she reclaims her bead, she will become human. Mi-ho happily complies, and Dae-woong accepts her bead.

However, Dong-joo deliberately withheld the information that this process will result in the human’s death. Mi-ho and Dae-woong thus fall in love without knowing the consequences of fulfilling her goal: in 100 days, Dae-woong will die if Mi-ho becomes fully human, but Mi-ho will die if the bead isn’t returned.

REVIEWS

My Girlfriend is a Gumiho is my golden drama. It is my absolute favourite drama above all others. I was immediately hooked and fell deeper and deeper in love with it as the drama progressed.

Review: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

Lee Seung Gi is wonderful as the irresponsible boy who grows into a man that would do anything for the woman he loves. Shin Min Ah is also about as adorable as you can get as Gu Mi Ho. She has such a captivating innocence and wonder. Both actors completely nailed their roles.

Review: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

The comedy and cuteness abound in this drama. Dae Woong and Mi Ho’s interactions are hilarious. Seeing the human world through Mi Ho’s eyes is always fun, and Dae Woong’s reactions to Mi Ho are just as priceless.

SPOILERS BELOW

Review: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

I adore the comedy in this drama, but the romance that takes place really tugged at my heart. Dae Woong matures and eventually grows to love Mi Ho. And when he finds out he may lose her, he is willing to give his life for her. Of course, Mi Ho won’t have that, and she is also willing to give her life to save Dae Woong.

No Min Woo’s character, Park Dong Joo, gets to witness their love first hand. At first, he wanted to kill Mi Ho, and he was ultimately responsible for guiding her on her journey to become human, but he withheld the fact that Dae Woong would have to lose his life for that to happen. Because of his own haunted past and his growing feelings for Mi Ho, Dong Joo remains sceptical of their love until the very end. He has to actually witness Dae Woong’s willingness to give his life for Mi-Ho before he accepts it.

Review: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

As our couple’s inevitable tragic end approached, I shed many tears. I was fully convinced of their deep love for each other, and it really showed in even the smallest of moments. Dae Woong and Mi Ho had to meet their fate head-on, and what they feared did finally happen. Mi Ho disappeared. But even then, Dae Woong’s love remained strong in his heart.

Finally, after some time, they were granted a special gift, and Mi-Ho was able to return to Dae Woong. The drama ended with the cuteness that embodied their relationship, but it now had a sense of fullness and completion because of what they had been through together.

Review: My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

I wholeheartedly recommend My Girlfriend is a Gumiho to everyone. What did you think of the drama?
