The drama was never able to be a serious ratings contender going up against bigger competitors like MBC’s Dong Yi and SBS’s Giant, but overall I’d characterize Fox Child as having... More »

Really, my favorite thing about this image from Gumiho: Tale of the Fox’s Child is that wonderfully disgruntled grumpyface on Seo Shin-ae. Aw!
