My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox is a South Korean romantic comedy series. Broadcast by SBS from 2010-Aug-11 to 2010-Sep-30. It stars Lee Seung Gi and Shin Min Ah.

Cha Dae-Woong (Lee Seung Gi) accidentally releases a gumiho, a legendary fox with nine tails who was trapped inside of a painting of Grandma Samshin. He does this by adding nine tails to the fox. The gumiho wanted to be human before, but was not able to fulfill the requirement of finding a husband, because a rumor was spread claiming that she eats the livers of humans. During their first encounter, Dae-woong experiences a life-threatening fall, and the gumiho saves his life by giving him her fox marble. Later on, Dae-Woong wakes up and meets a pretty girl, not knowing that she is the gumiho that he released. When Dae-woong finds out about what he did, he must try to keep her happy and hide the fact that she is a gumiho from everyone. However, because Dae Woong has gumiho's bead that saved his life, he has no choice but to let her stay with him.

As the story goes on, the legendary gumiho, later called Miho, wants to be human. Miho (Shin Min Ah) is informed by a veterinarian named Park Dong Joo (who is half human, half monster) that in order to fully transform into a human, she must drink human blood and give a human her fox marble so that he keeps the fox-marble in his body for a full 100 days. Moreover, Dae Woong will not be able to date anyone else but Mi Ho within the 100 days. However, Dong Joo does not tell Miho that, after the 100 days pass, in order for her to become human, Dae-woong must die. Trouble brews when Miho and Dae-woong eventually fall in love.
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.
Production Note
In Korean mythology, a "gumiho" is a nine-tailed fox spirit (and a shape-shifter that usually appears in the guise of a woman) with magical powers and an appetite for human organs.

Wannabe movie star Dae-woong (Lee Seung-Gi, Brilliant Legacy) learns that a gumiho isn't so evil after all when he accidentally frees 500-year-old Mi-ho (Shin Min-Ah) into the human world. Naive, inquisitive, and beautiful, Mi-ho just wants to hang out with Dae-woong and eat beef every day, bringing barrels of unexpected troubles into his life. Mi-ho learns of a way to become human from a mysterious hunter named Dong-joo (Noh Min-Woo). But what Mi-ho doesn't know is that her dream of becoming human could end up killing Dae-woong.

A modern love story steeped in ancient folklore, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho is the latest must-see Korean TV drama from the creators of You're Beautiful and My Girl.
