After wandering the earth for the past 999 years, Shin Woo Yeo (Jang Ki Yong) now stands on the brink of seeing his greatest dream come true. Having spent the last thousand years collecting human energy in his precious bead, this thousand year old gumiho is finally ready to shed his fox form and become fully human. Or at least he was until one unsuspecting student by the name of Lee Dam (Hyeri), ruined all his plans. Working as a college professor, Woo Yeo never imagined that a single university student would be capable of waylaying all of his plans for becoming human. But when a late-night encounter with Lee Dam and one of her drunken friends causes him to drop his precious bead, that’s exactly what happens. While trying to help her inebriated friend home, Lee Dam accidentally swallows Woo Yeo’s fox bead. Knowing full well that swallowing a fox bead will ultimately kill a human, Woo Yeo has no choice but to confront Lee Dam with the truth. With no real idea how to solve their current predicament, Woo Yeo suggests they live together, until they can figure out a solution. Unable to find a way out of this predicament on her own, Lee Dam agrees to Woo Yeo’s unusual request. But will living together really help them find the answer they seek, or will it just bring with it an entirely new set of problems? Based on the webtoon of the same name by Na, “My Roommate is a Gumiho” is a 2021 romantic comedy drama directed by Park Joon Hwa and Nam Sung Woo.
