My Girlfriend is a Gumiho is a 2010 South Korean drama with the genre of fantasy romantic comedy. It starred the two of the prominent Hallyu artists of all time, Lee Seung Gi and Shin Min Ah. The drama even won the Best Foreign Soap Opera in 2012 USTv Students’ Choice Awards. In addition, it has already been aired in various international televisions.
The drama’s greatness
At the age of 10, I did not really expected myself to be drown in a South Korean drama. However, when I had first seen My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, there is something about this series and its cast that kept on pulling me to watch it. What was more surprising is the fact that it was not just me who was so into it; my younger sister was with me, at the age of 6.
For how many times that my sister and I have watched My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, the excitement and happiness were always the same. Since then, I have been following all the dramas that Lee Seung Gi and Shin Min Ah had starred in.
As for me, if there is one K-drama that shouldn’t be missed by fans, it would be My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.
As a kid who was in elementary school; it looked so weird for others to see me wide awake at night, watching a K-drama. However, it does not stop me from spending my night to watch My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. In fact, there are even so many reasons why this drama is really addictive and satisfying to watch.
There were times when I kept on crying whenever the character of Shin Min Ah cries (Gumiho) on the drama. I even felt so bad for her and her situation at first. I even wanted to hug her to comfort her whenever the character of Lee Seung Gi (Cha Daewoong) cannot understand her.
On the other side, the joyfulness was present each scene that Gumiho gets special treatment from Cha Daewoong. Remember the scene when they go out and Gumiho ate so many foods than what Daewoong expected?
Aside from that, there are still more sweet and funny times to look back on. For instance, the first scene when Gumiho and Daewoong met each other. Then, when Gumiho ate the bubbles she got from a soap. Next, when Gumiho bought a stand poster for Daewoong because she thought that Daewoong likes it so much; little did she know, it was actually what’s in the picture. Followed by the time when they go out for a grocery. Afterwards, I also liked the scene when Daewoong became dumbfounded after seeing Gumiho all dress with curly hair; and many more worthy scenes.
My Girlfriend is a Gumiho will seriously feel incomplete without its awesome official soundtracks. Below are the two OSTs which my sister and I love the most.
The goosebumps, the tears, the happiness, the sadness, and the overwhelming feeling are all back after listening to these musics. It’s as if things did not happened a long time ago. It feels like it was just yesterday when I last watched the drama.
All in all, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho is so memorable and worth it to watch for how many times. It will certainly give you a ride into a roller coaster of emotions. However, it will also not fail you with its content, message, and all. Subsequently, the drama will be incomplete without the main leads and their incomparable acting skills.
