Cha Dae Woong (Lee Seung Gi) is a spoiled brat and wants to be an action movie star. After a particular tantrum with his grandfather, he releases a 500-year-old spirit. Gu Mi Ho (Shin Min Ah) is a nine-tailed fox who has unspeakable powers. After being released Mi Ho helps Dae Woong when he gets injured in the woods and Mi Ho heals him by giving her a few her spiritual powers. It is then that Dae Woong uses Mi Ho’s powers to make his action stunts more spectacular, and Mi Ho wants to learn how to be human. It is soon realized that Dae Woong is falling for the nine-tailed fox, but Gu Mi Ho has a secret about herself within the human world.

My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox is such a hilarious and adorable comedy! Just from the name itself, it can only ensure that it is something entertaining to watch. Shin Min Ah is charming and adorable playing a spirit that is trying to act human and Lee Seung Gi acts a spoiled brat well. Together Min Ah and Seung Gi have such a chemistry between the two of them that reminds me of a summer love that feels like it will last forever.

Set in a universe where there is a rare illness called the ‘Pinocchio syndrome’ where if someone lies they hiccup, Choi In Ha wishes to be a reporter but cannot lie without breaking out into hiccups. Thus it is seen as impossible for In Ha to become a reporter. At the same time Choi Dal Po, In Ha’s adopted brother, has been scorned by the media and wishes to have nothing to do with news outlets. But when In Ha goes to work for a news station, Dal Po follows her. Together they learn how media and news can be corrupt and learn their true feelings for each other.

This is an interesting drama to watch. The idea of the ‘Pinocchio syndrome’ and how it can halt a person’s career is strange to watch but also fascinating to see how In Ha wishes to use it to her advantage. Although it is strange how Dal Po and In Ha have possible relations, it’s important to remember that they aren’t actually related and have a mutual understanding towards each other. Overall this seems like a fun and unique drama that many will enjoy.
