My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho
Korean title: 내 여자친구는 구미호
Alternate title: My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox
SBS, 16 episodes
August 11, 2010 – September 30, 2010

A supernatural romantic comedy with one of the most endearing odd couples in dramaland, between a scaredy-cat manchild (Lee Seung-gi) and a mythical nine-tailed fox known as a gumiho (Shin Mina). She's inhumanly beautiful but also carnivorous, and he has to keep her fed in ridiculous amounts of beef just in case she gets any funny ideas about eating his liver. Her biggest wish is to become human, and in the process of helping her through the transformation, romance and hilarity ensue.

If You Like… Noona Romances

If you’re anything like me, your ideal drama hero isn’t the cold chaebol with the icy exterior or even the perfect Daddy Long Legs caretaker.

I have to say, 2010 was a downright awesome year. It was the year of bromance, the year that Santa came in August, the year when guys had perms and noonas ruled, the year of the sparkly tracksuit and hoi-hoi, the year that makgulli made a comeback. But most importantly for me, it was the... More »

This has been an exceptional year for kdramas. Just ask Kim Gab-soo, if you can catch him in an idle moment, that is. The man appeared in ten dramas this year, a number that is mind-boggling in itself and one which is bound to make Bae Yong-joon’s fans wail. But it isn’t just the sheer... More »
