An urban fantasy drama about a gumiho who settles into the city and a producer who is after it.
The story features the mythical nine-tailed fox, or gumiho, Lee Yeon who has just settled in the city. Able to transform into human form, he goes about cleansing human spirits, all the while creating havoc. Enter the talented television producer Nam Ji Ah whose current show features urban myths. With nerves of steel, she will stop at nothing to secure unusual, if not dangerous, subject matter to showcase. She sets her sights on Lee Yeon who appears just too good to be true; irresistibly handsome, intelligent, fit; in fact the ideal guest. But his heartlessness will render doubt in her that he is true of this world. Step-brother to Lee Yeon is the captivating Lee Rang, reputed to be the most dangerous of all gumihos living among humans. Despite being half-human himself, he harbors a deep-seated contempt for all people.
S02: Thanks to Rang's sacrifice, Yeon became a person and had a happy ending with Ji-ah. However, he visits the Afterlife Immigration Office after learning that his sinful brother Rang cannot be reborn. There, Yeon makes an unjust contract to serve again for Rang's reincarnation. Due to this, Yeon gets back as a nine-tailed fox and even crash-lands in 1938. While carrying out his mission, he encounters young Rang, who is alive again but as an enemy, just as their relationship back then.
