Gumiho is literally translated as nine-tailed fox, it is a legendary fox who was sealed inside a painting by Samshin Grandmother (goddess of birth). According to myth, a fox that lives a thousand years turns into a gumiho and it can easily transform into a beautiful woman to seduce guys because it eats men’s livers.
Cha Dae-woong is an ordinary college student with a dream of being an action star. One day, he is saved by the gumiho giving him her “fox bead” when he suffers a life-threatening fall.
