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.

Tomorrow with You

Watch it on DramaFever, Viki, and KissAsian.

Yoo So Joon (Lee Je Hoon) is a CEO of a large company and approaches every situation as a profit or a loss. He is selfish and lives his life looking out for only himself. Not only is So Joon rich and handsome, but he also has the ability to time-travel when he travels on a subway. Song Ma Rin (Shin Min Ah) is a photographer who was once a child star. Struggling as an adult in her personal life and professionally, she keeps a positive and optimistic attitude. When So Joon sees his how depressed and dull his life is in the future, he decides to marry Ma Rin as a way to save his own future. Although he doesn’t love her, Ma Rin is in love with So Joon. Will it be possible for So Joon to actually find love in his heart for Ma Rin?

Tomorrow with You has such an interesting concept to it. I haven’t seen many dramas that deal with the ability of time travel, unlike many that dealt with the supernatural ability to see spirits and ghosts. This fresh idea was received well, as well as the casting choice of Shin Min Ah and Lee Je Hoon. Overall this drama is going to be a tear-jerker and will definitely feature some comedic scenes between Min Ah and Je Hoon.

Kang Joo Eun (Shin Min Ah) also known as Daegu’s Venus was known for her beauty in her high school years; girls wanted to be her and all guys want to date her. Aspiring to be a lawyer Kang Joo Eun works hard to get into law school and also meets her First Love Im Woo Sik (Jung Gyu Woon) a competitive swimmer. Fast forward 15 years later Kang Joo Eun has achieved her goal of being a lawyer but has become overweight from the amount of work she has. On the eve of Joo Eun’s and Woo Sik’s 15th Anniversary, he ends the relationship.

We are then introduced to a mysterious man in Los Angeles known as John Kim, a personal trainer, who we later learn his name is Kim Young Ho. When a rumor starts that Young Ho and his client are in a romantic relationship he leaves to go back to Korea. At the same time, Joo Eun has left for a business trip in the states and is sent back as quickly as she arrived. While on the flight to Korea Joo Eun faints to which Young Ho provides medical attention and ends up cutting her out of her corset. Later on, Joo Eun finds out that Young Ho is the famous trainer John Kim and asks for his help in her goal to lose weight.

After watching the first episode I just want to watch more and see what happens between Joo Eun and Young Ho! Shin Min Ah is hilarious and the transformation from her slim frame to a larger size is crazy to see. Overall this is an interesting drama looking at how South Korean society treats and looks at overweight women since they are so focused on appearance and beauty, but that is not the point of the romantic comedy.

If I were to recommend this drama to a friend who has never seen a KDrama before, I’d say that this is similar to the beginning of Legally Blonde where Elle is broken up with and then proves what everyone thinks of her is wrong. Oh My Venus is a story of second chances and proving to others that you can do the unthinkable.
