Dangerous, deceitful, and dreadful.
These are only some of the words to describe a Gumiho. According to ancient Korean urban legends, a Gumiho is a nine-tailed fox that takes the form of a beautiful woman and seduces men so that later on they can pull and eat the liver out of their fragile human bodies.
For generations to generations, the legend of this mythical creature (or monster to some) has been passed on and has been feared upon but things, however, are different for aspiring action star Cha Dae Woong. After encountering and seeing a gumiho himself, he has proven that they not capable of taking you liver, rather they can take away you heart.

The mere sight of the gumiho, who took its female form, rattled the young man, making him run for his life and falling off a riverbank. This will cause him severe damages and in order to save his life, Mi Ho gave her bead or source of power to him.
In return, Miho asks Dae Woong to take care of her bead and be her boyfriend for 100 days.
