This is Tim from KC101.com.
I don't know what you talk about...?? "sorry"

What is "9 tail fox"??
I've not heard about it.
I think 구미호 is KC drama that has been playing on TV recently...
That's all I know about.
cheers,

thanks tim. you are right - it is the title of a recent drama. the title, and the synopsis, made me curious. i found out on sunday that the drame is based loosely on a folk story. the folk story concerns a mgical fox, who is curious about, and jealous of, the humans. the fox transforms into a beautiful woman, and marries a regular guy. the guy gets more and more concerned as he notices his lovely wifes increasingly odd behaviour - particularly eating habits (like whole live chickens). the rest of it i didn't really understand - but it has something to do with eating the husbands liver. still not sure where 9 tails comes into it. ho hum. guess i'll have to watch the drama to see if i can learn more :)

Now I know what you are talking about...
Let's simply say that 구미호 is a Western version of Dracula.
It's a fiction.
Have fun with the K-Drama~~^^

Tim :P

구미호 is a horror legendary.
She can be a real human as she eats human's liver.

I forgot how many she need to eat human's liver. :lol:

구 means nine,
미 means tail,
호 means fox.

You should read 'Fox Girl' it's a book all about the 9-tail fox legend.
