Episode Count:



Pairing a centuries-old gumiho with a young, contemporary clueless female may be a common theme in fantasy rom-com dramas. But the portrayal of the lead stars made the series interesting to watch. It also veered away from the usual jealous plot featuring the second female lead, since it chose to focus on the character’s strong friendship with the male lead.
Hard Pill to Swallow
The drama could use a more interesting soundtrack to make the scenes more memorable.
