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.

i believe it will be interesting to watch as there is a mix couple as in The Bride of Habaek. Though the fantasy character is a girl.

    First time watching the couples drama, at first I wasn't sure about it but due to my 'watch 3 max' rule I changed my mind and fell in love during episode 2-3. Really nice combo of romance, supernatural and comedy. Some moments made me cry but because it got me so emotional.

    My Girlfriend is a Gumiho é "dividido em três partes", do episódios 01 ao 13 é um drama, super, hiper, mega fofo e maravilhoso... o episódio 14 vira trevas, quase desgraça o drama inteiro, do episódio 15 ao final voltar a ser apenas bom e fofo.
    Quando comecei a assistir meu coração quase não aguentou, Shin Min-A e Park Soo-Jin juntas, no mesmo drama, quase infartei. Foi perfeito!
    Voltando para a história, bom pra variar tá errada, ou melhor tem coisa errada nessa "adaptação" digamos assim, pois bem o drama é uma inspiração no folclore japonesa de uma raposa chamada Kitsune.

    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 :(

      the 1st episode is the worst I am not going to lie... skip it and go to the 2nd episode... shit doesnt get good till episode 4, you need to bear with it. I promise it will be worth your while

      Thanks for your reply! :) So, what you're saying is that the characters are not cliché, the gumiho isn't clingy and the drama doesn't use humour based on threats of violence anymore past episode 4 or is it just less worse? To be honest DaemonSaDia's comment made me giv eup on this drama since it seems we share the same preferences. It seems you've completed the drama however so I'm curious about your opinion.

      naaaaaah! they are hella cliche...
      but I really did like it.
      to me it was a feel good drama.
      and I did struggle at the beginning with the 1st few episode so I do relate to what you were saying... and I really liked lee seung gi from previous dramas, but his acting really pissed me off in this drama, at 1st. but this drama grew on me. also keep in mind that this drama was in 2010. that was the highlight of all the cliches in dramaland...

      i don't mind clichés, it's just the type that we have here isn't really my thing :/ if they persist, i think it's better for me to stay away from this drama^^ thanks for all your clarifications though! it might help another to keep on watching :)

      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.
