This was an interesting Drama ! Since , its a different take on your regular romantic comedies ! it was a bit slow for me in the first couple of minutes , but then it started to get interesting , when the Gumiho and man start to fall for each other ! its cute ! I will recommend this , for someone who is looking for a slight change from the god read more old romantic comedies ! Also it is very well acted form my point ! It has a good vibe(atmosphere) to it !

Aside from the plot what made me watch this drama is the chemistry of the two main leads which is Lee Seung Gi and Shin Min Ah's characters. I love their acting and they really compliment each other. I find Shin Min Ah really pretty and awesome as the Gumiho. She really fits the role and being a newbie in dramas she was able to handle it well. I also commend Lee read more Seung Gi's acting. It's really fun and entertaining and you will not get bored watching this drama.

Has the same element of fox spirits and ancient rituals, and talismans coming to life.

Both have a sweet, innocent supernatural female lead (that at one point walks around barefoot with a white dress!) that adapts to the human world. Also both heroines must protect the lives of the heroes for a certain amount of time due to different reasons linked to their powers, and both heroes could die without this bond. Both male leads are also trying to pursue an artistic career: in MGIAG, he wants to become an actor, and in SA, he is a photographer. Also, both dramas have a darker supernatural character that has a soft spot for the female lead.

    UGH!!! Yet another offensive writer writing garbage, this drama from beginning to end had nothing to do with our main leads getting together, but instead about 2 very offensive and obseesed 2nd leads, the asshole Dong Joo, and the bitch Hye In trying and succeeding in splitting up our main couple. I don't understand how people can love and say it's a MUST WATCH, and cute, refreshing, awesome, best drama, like really are you kidding me? This writer and the people who made such comments need to turn their computers/TV's off and go outside and see what real life is about, they need to go back to school and find out what love really is, reality is not these lame selfish and obsessive love triangles. Who writes such garbage? It's time to grow up people...UGH!!! Thought this would be a good drama, but it's just a stupid and lame offensive obsessive triangle with 2 really obsessed scum in the form of the ass Dong Joo and the bitch Hye In that even though they never had nor ever will have a chance with either of our main leads, but obsessively hang on to trying to split up our main leads for their selfish and sick desires. Just another offensive and obsessed with triangles and split ups writer. So pathetically lame.

      I dropped it after 2 episodes. I don't know why everyone recommends it. The girl is annoying. The guy is annoying. Not worth my time, seriously..

    It may be an ordinary fairy tale story, but it definitely succeeds at what it is by blending the right amount of myth and human emotion to create a drama that still feels fresh regardless of time. Many of the moments I still remember today, like the stuffed drumstick and the camera. I think that is what makes this drama a nostalgic favorite. Plus, Shin Min Ah is gold in every role she plays.

    You'd like it if you're looking for something lighthearted, innocent, cute and sweet. Great soundtrack too!

      Does she act in anything that doesn't have any of these stupid offensive obsessive triangles? Dramas, not movies, thanks...
