Korean Legends: What Is A Gumiho?

A Gumiho (구미호) is a creature that appears in ancient Korean folklore.

nine-tailed foxa beautiful woman.

It is similar to the Japanese legend of the kitsune.

the gumiho is almost ALWAYS depicted as a bad figure.

Some tales say that if a gumiho doesn't kill or eat humans for a thousand days, it can become human.

On the other hand, it is also said that if a gumiho eats the total amount of 1000 men's livers/hearts in a period of 1000 years, it can become human, otherwise it will be dissolved into bubbles.

You've probably heard about it from the drama, My Girlfriend the Nine Tailed Fox!
