Sehun as Hwang Chi Hyung



Likes: Beautiful leads, no doubt, but chemistry  is another story.

Song Hye Kyo as Ha Young Eun – you can see that she’s gotten older but still very beautiful. She is definitely a talent but the role made her look like she’s not having fun in life, too serious. I wish to see her again in a more light-hearted drama, maybe a romantic comedy. Nevertheless, she looked stunning in different outfits, especially the floral dress.

Jang Ki Yong as Yoon Jae Kook – still very handsome. After My Roommate is a Gumiho, I was looking forward to this drama. His role here didn’t make much impact like the Gumiho but still glad to see this beauty in another light. Tall and handsome, he complemented Hye Kyo’s perfect look.

Fashionable Outfits. Love all Song Hye Kyo’s outfits! She looked good in them and they looked good on her. Her floral dress was just so pretty! Perfect for the date although she looked so stiff in that scene 😉. Also love Jang Ki Yong’s relaxed outfit. This guy looks good on everything I guess. Pretty much everyone in the show looked fashionable.

Awesome Quotes. Love how each episode starts with quotes from famous personalities. And my favourite was by Gertrude Stein, “Whoever said money can’t buy happiness, simply didn’t know where to go shopping.” 😂

SONO. How meaningful is the name for Ha Young Eun’s clothing line was and to think it was originally suggested by a stranger who turned out to be the love of her life.



Bold Reply. When Ha Young Eun was asked by Jae Guk’s mum if they can have a talk and Young Eun replied, ” If you’re So Wan’s mum then I don’t have a reason to meet you, but if you’re Jae Guk’s mum, yes, I will meet you.”  Very bold of her and kind of like it if I was in Young Eun’s shoes but not if I were the mum 🤔.

Supporting Love Teams. I was glad they had other love teams to switch my attention to. The Hwang Chi-sook and Seok Do-hoon’s love team was a bit cringy but these two were just so cute.

Friendship Goal. The strong bond between the three ladies was simply admirable. It makes me miss my best friends more.

Dislikes: The story was just blah. Lots of cliches. And what I was disappointed most was the lack of justification for the main lead’s greatest love for each other. Also, the lack of chemistry was very evident. Sorry, but I was totally bored. Struggled to finish the whole drama.

The ending was, how would I describe it, very lazily done. It was like, what, that was it?!

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)


My Roommate is a Gumiho

my roommate is gumiho kdramaSummary : A male gumiho, Shin Woo Yeo, losts his fox bead to a female college student, Lee Dam. In order to keep the bead safe and close to him, he asks her to live with him in his house until he finds a way how to take it back. However, spending time together bring the two of them closer.

Trailer: My Roommate is a Gumiho

Genre:  Fantasy, Supernatural
Episodes: 16
Stars: Jang Ki Yong as Shin Woo Yeo
Lee Hye Ri as Lee Dam
Kang Han Na as Yang Hye Sun
Bae In Hyuk as Gye Sun Woo
Kim Do Wan as Do Jae Jin




Likes: I particularly like how they put some details on the Gumiho’s background story. Before Shin Woo Yeo came into being, there was this lonesome fox who asked the mountain deity to turn him into human. Love it even more that it was nicely visualized. It gave that “Long long time ago” kind of feel. Just like the beginning of a fantasy book.

The Real Gumiho Looks. I think this is the only gumiho kdrama wherein they show the real fox looks. It’s normally just those 9 bushy tails. But here, our main girl Lee Dam was right away introduced to the fox behind the handsome Shin Woo Yeo. The scene was hilarious with the giant fox appearing in front of our girl but after the initial shock, Lee Dam managed to warm up to our gumiho.

The Gumiho House. I won’t expect a very handsome, young guy living there but considering Shin Woo Yeo is 900 years old, it was such a fitting house for the character. Love the atrium, although it could get really cold in winter. But who cares, he’s a gumiho afterall.

Different Eras. Like the gumiho background, this drama took time to show what had happened in our main character’s past. I especially like the Joseon period when Shin Woo Yeo got to wear Hanboks, played around with some ladies and finally met his first love. He also met another gumiho who later became his only friend.  The heartbreak from the first love and the strong bond from having a long-time friend gave us all a peek on Shin Woo Yeo’s background.



The Chemistry. It was undeniably good! The reason why I got so hooked. Jang Ki Yong and Lee Hye Ri’s awesome chemistry was so addicting. I couldn’t get enough of this two that I even ended up looking for some behind the scenes video. The kissing scenes were awesome! They didn’t hold back!

The Cast.

Jang Ki Yong as Shin Woo Yeo – the most handsome Gumiho (sorry Lee Dong Wook lol). He was just looking perfect in every angle! So tall and handsome and always looked great in winter coats. Although, his acting is not yet perfect, the chemistry saved it all.

Lee Hye Ri as Lee Dam – her bubbly and bright personality fitted Lee Dam perfectly. Love the way she talked and smiled. She was also quite funny, I enjoyed watching her so much. Of course, her chemistry with Jang Ki Yong, as mentioned, was just daebak!

Kang Han Na as Yang Hye Sun – she’s really a great actress. She nailed her Hye Sun character here like how she nailed her role in Start Up. Loved how she would tease Shin Woo Yeo how amazing the feeling was to be a human, knowing that the latter hadn’t achieved his goal yet. And how cute she was every time she misunderstood Korean idioms.



Love Teams. The additional love teams really added excitement to the show especially Yang Hye Sun and Do Jae Jin. These two were just so cute! The possible romance between the funny Soo Kyung and Jung Suk and the dongsaeng love between Lee Dan and Gye Seo Woo made it all happy and full of love.

Cameos. There was Jung So Min, Kang Mi Na, Go Kyung Pyo, and even the veteran Kim Eung Soo.

Love the OST. The song Door is just love! Here’s My Roommate is a Gumiho OST!

Dislikes: Agressive product placement at the end. I thought the obvious Subway sandwich ad was really bad. Same with the instant coffee. It really messed up the ending.  It would have been perfect without that.

My Rating: 8.5 stars! (10 as highest)
