Tale of the Nine Tailed is not like your typical gumiho story. It’s a love story, yes, but there’s no liver eating foxes in this drama. This drama Tale of the Nine Tailed is based on the folklore about the mountain spirit and Imoogi, the evil sea spirit.
In this drama, the mountain spirit called Lee Yeon (played by Lee Dong Wook) falls in love with a human during his mountain spirit days but leaves his position when his love died so that she could be reincarnated.
Present day, Lee Yeon lives as a nine tailed fox and meets Nam Ji Ah (played by Jo Bo Ah), who’s a documentary director on the supernatural and has the same face as the woman Lee Yeon loved in the past. Lee Yeon soon finds himself battling Imoogi and stuck in the same disposition as he was in the past – save himself or save Ji Ah.
When I first started watching this show, I know many people had their reservations because they were afraid this was going to end like Hwayugi.
I won’t be talking about the ending here, but the concept was pretty similar. Lee Yeon is a nine tailed fox – he’s immortal and Ji Ah is only a human being.
They were never meant to be together but nine tailed foxes only mate once for life aka they only have one lover, which is why Lee Yeon is constantly pursuing Ji Ah. อ่านต่อ
