tvN’s upcoming webtoon-based collection My Roommate Is a Gumiho has actually launched a promotional photo including lead stars Jang Ki-yong as well as Lee Hye-ri.
My Roommate Is a Gumiho follows Shin Woo-yeo (Jang Ki-yong, Born Again), a 999-year-old gumiho (mythical nine-tailed fox) who functions as a professor, and also Lee Dam (Lee Hye-ri, Miss Lee), a university student who has never been in a partnership. As a result of a crash, the two end up sharing the very same space and stimulating a not likely romance.
The teaser poster offers the target market a glance of the uncanny cohabitation configuration of Shin Woo-yeo and Lee Dam. For several years, Woo-yeo has actually been collecting human energy in his fox bead to, at some point quickly, become one of them. One day, he fulfills Lee Dam. In what starts as an easy act of helping her out, a mishap takes place, and Woo-yeo’s precious grain winds up inside Dam.
Nevertheless, the unique bead can only stay within Dam’s body for a year prior to it damages. Once it does, not just will the occasion kill her, however, it will certainly also take away Woo-yeo’s only shot at coming to be human. To solve both of their dilemmas, Woo-yeo suggests that they live together until they figure out what to do. In the poster, Woo-yeo tries to comfort the visibly stressed Dam as he wraps one his tails around her neck as a warmer. The two-part subtitle says, “Miss Dam, you can’t catch a cold. Because my bead is precious.”
My Roommate Is a Gumiho is slated to follow Mouse in its 10: 30 p.m. slot every Wednesday and Thursday beginning May 26.
