Our thoughts on My Girlfriend is a Gumiho:
My Girlfriend is a Gumiho was an awesome drama. It had just the right amount of all the elements for me. The comedy was great and I loved all the quirky characters. There was also just the right amount of fantasy and touch of magic. I was very pleased with the acting and the Hong sisters did a lovely job with the script. They seem to have the magic touch when it comes to dramas.-sleepninja
I became a fan of Lee Seung Gi almost immediately after I started watching Shining Inheritance. After finishing that drama it left me wanting to see him in something else, and shortly after I started this drama. I loved everything about it, there wasn’t one thing I didn’t like. It just pulled me in. And there were so many scenes that had my sides hurting from laughing so much! One of the funniest rom-coms I’ve seen, and one I could re-watch over and over again! –crazy4you
I started My Girlfriend is a Gumiho after watching Lee Seung Gi in The King2Hearts. I couldn’t wait for the episodes to air, so I decided to watch another drama with the actor, and the synopsis of this one bought me really quick. I love supernatural element in dramas; after a while you start getting tired of the same thing so you wish to watch something light, funny, and different. That is what this drama is. I enjoyed it very much, and hope you do to 🙂 -JADEEYES
