The drama starts of amazing with the story of the parents. It is good enough to fear that it might overshadow the story between the leads. The story is fast paced and doesn't drag. The elements of romance, fantasy and action are interwoven together and the story gives you a warm happy feel. Until now there has been little progress in the main love story but the fact that kang chi's first read more romance and its ultimate end is shown adds a dimension to the story which is not present in other drama's. The fear of history repeating itself has me gripped.

Fast pace ensures that you are involved even when you watch it again. Gon Yi, Chung Jo and Tae Seo are also developed as multi dimensional characters which invite your interest.

Kyaaaaaaaaaaaa this drama is just WOW big times!!!!!!Every scene was better than the previous one! The only question that I was asking myself during this drama was: "Why I haven't watched this drama before?"

Why you MUST watch this drama!
- A beautiful pure love story between a gumiho Choi Kang Chi and Dam Yeo Wool
- intense with a lot of action!
- it makes you laugh
- and what I read more always LOVE about a quality drama is that it gives you all EMOTIONS

The beginning was soooo DAEBAK! A love story between Choi Kang Chi's father and mother was something that it made me keep watching it! l And then (after the first 2 episodes) my addiction started! EVERY SCENE IS UNPREDICTABLE AND FULL OF TWISTS!!!!!
The ending of this drama is EPIC! I can't get over it and keep replaying that scene over and over! :D

Music: This drama has one of the best OSTs of all time! From the thrilling to the romantic ones! I seriously loved every ost in here!

Suzy is a good actress,I like her, but yet her crying face seems a little fake. She pulled this off pretty good ;)
OMG! Lee Seung Gi was a major reason why I started this drama. I'm a big fan of him and in this drama he was AMAZING! OMG, while he was crying I was crying along with him :'(
The other ones are pretty good too :D

Too add one more reason why I liked this drama is that there are true quotes about life, love, friendship...
I just LOVE this kind of drama and I soooo thank writers! It's very unique and epic!

both have the same main lead (lee seung gi) and are about a gumiho wanting to become human. A big difference is that gu family book is a historical drama :)

    Suzy may not be the greatest actress out there, but she had amazing chemistry with LSG. Really loved this cute couple and the story. The OST was pretty good too. I only didn't like the ending. It made me go WTF lol. But still a fast-paced, nice drama with lots of action & loveable characters & touching love stories in it :-)

    Is the ending good? I was thinking of watching this but I read these comments and I'm not sure if it makes you feel satisfied. I watched Marry Him If You Dare and that ending left me depressed lol.
