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.

They both have a supernatural lead that is trying to adjust to living in the human world. Even though the supernatural person is a guy. Also, one of them is also trying to get famous although the one is this drama is already famous. Both of these dramas are really good.

    I watched the first episode yesterday and I was kind of disappointed and am wondering if I should carry on watching.

    Do the characters stay like that?
    The guy is a little bit too self-centered in my opinion. I find neither the threats nor how clingy the gumiho is funny. And the guy's friends & grandpa seem very cliché to me: classic girl who thinks the lead is so handsome and great (friend #1) + guy who actually loves the girl (friend #2) and tssk-ing rich & authorative grandpa.
    Please tell me this is not all there is to them :(

      Made it to episode 5 and, if anything, it gets worse. The guy continues to act like a complete sociopath and the girls (even the 500-year-old one) who somehow find this scumbag irresistible are all portrayed as too dumb to figure out that everything he says is a transparent, self-serving lie.

      I loved the show's premise, so I had high hopes it would get better but, ugh... Dropped.

      For what its worth, episode 5 hooked me on the show with a revelation that came at the end. It finally sets up the central conflict and makes things a lot more compelling. I'm not saying it will have you loving the show because, well, I'll acknowledge that this show is quite possibly the cheesiest thing I've ever loved so unreservedly, but it may just get you invested.

    This was my first K-drama and got me hooked on K-drama. Before this show I knew nothing about Korean dramas. I ended up watching this by accident and I was hooked.
