My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (2010) : Korean Drama Review

My Girlfriend is a Gumiho (2010)


 On one day after Cha Dae Woong ran away from his grandfather, he accidently freed a nine-tailed fox who was closed in a painting for about 500 years. He didn’t realize what he has done, until the Gumiho (nine-tailed fox),who took the form of a beautiful woman, appeared in front of him. Dae Woong was really frightened that he ran away from her and fell on the riverbank.Since he was severely injured, Gumiho came to save him and gave him her most precious bead to share with him the mystic fox’ strength, as she owes him her freedom. Gumiho then asked him if he can help her become human and how to act like one. In return, she allowed him to use her bead for him to shoot for his dream action movie despite his body’s severe condition. As time goes by, their mutual relationship grew deeper as they start to fall for each other.


My Personal Review: 

MGIAG (My Girlfriend is a Gumiho) was aired in ABS-CBN last May 2011. I don’t have any idea about this drama knowing I am an Asian drama addict. I first saw it’s animated GIF image on tumblr. (Really thanks to tumblr.. I’m discovering a lot of things) The hoi hoi! couple… A girl with 9 tails.. It’s really a fiction. I’m not so used to fiction dramas but this caught my attention. Nobody influenced my addiction into this drama. It just happened. 😉 I started to watch it on ABS-CBN every afternoon and later on decided to buy a DVD.. haha..Then, the rest was history.

What made me hooked about this drama? 

I can consider it my #1 favorite as of now in all KOREAN dramas I have watched. haha! I laughed.. Cried.. look like crazy by imitating MIHO.. The story was captivating in each episode. Its humor never fails to make me laugh all over again. Plus! the acting…”WAGAS” is the right term for it. I mean its solid talaga.

Lee Sung Gi played ” Dae Woong” so good. At first, I didn’t appreciate him. How do they choose this guy as the lead role while Miho is really cute! Eventually as the drama went by, I can say THUMBS UP! They have chosen the RIGHT guy to play Daewoong. In the part of Miho..(hands down) Shin min ah did a great job. I can’t imagine any other Korean actress who can play the playful and harmless Gumiho. Everytime she  acts, I’m carried away that convince me that gumiho is really existing in our world.

This Gumiho struggles to be a human being. She badly wants to be a HUMAN. People are the most complicated beings on earth but she really would love to be one. Dae woong is the key to achieve it by holding her bead for 100 days and drinking the blood of teacher park which is a half human and half goblin. (her soul mate actually) No min woo did a good job as Teacher Park also. He’s cool but he’s prettier than me duh.. haha.. Living with Dae woong and concealing her real identity to other people excites me all through out.

Miho loves beef and soda. oha yeah.. ” Amashhhta…!! :D” It’s really funny whenever she craves for it. Speaking of funny, the funniest love story of all is director ban and the tita of dae woongs’. LOL is the rating for their tandem. haha! Some will think of it as they were really corny regarding the “antenna” thing to show their love but the “nomu nomu nomu nomu chua! of Miho.. sigh! is the cutest gesture I’ve seen in my life.. haha!! Its the ( neomu neomu neomu joh-a!) korean language for ” I like you so so so so much!” with the*bang bang” hand gesture. haha It’s one of my favorite scene in the drama so whenever I like a person i’m saying nomu nomu chua.. haha..a friend ..lover or watever.! haha.. Imitating that miho style turns out to be annoying to an anonymous tumblrista to call me a bitch.. I just ignore it and made myself believe that I’m popular. joke! :p

Yes.. the first episodes really made me laugh but the lasts episodes made me shed a waterfall in my eyes. It’s really moving when dae woong is willing to sacrifice his life for Miho. It’s also a confirmation that he already love her despite all the craziness of staying away from her on the firsts episodes.

Yep..! until she disappeared.. he waits for almost a year I think. Eclipse.. then tadaah.. Miho is BAck !!! but my girlfriend is still a fox.. happy ending. :p haha♥

This drama is impossible in real life I know. Surreal..Fiction or whatever…It leaves a mark with anybody on how what true love is all about and how good things comes to those who wait. nice.. really amazing 🙂

Due to addiction, I end up downloading all the soundtrack of MGIAG.  i was amazed that the actors are the ones who have sang  some of the song..hihihi!!! two thumbs up!

Now.. I’m believing on a Fox rain.♥

Rating: 8 out of 10
