Forbidden Love - Tale of the Nine-tailed Fox - Kumiho

Forbidden Love (Tale of the Nine-Tailed Fox) first of its kind in Korean Drama, Forbidden Love is based on an ancient myth & transplants it in a modern day urban setting. The unique production brings viewers to a world where 9-Tailed Foxes, creatures who appear to be human and have extra-ordinary powers, coexist with normal people. With beings like them shunned by humans what would happen if a fox woman warrior falls in love with a human police detective? How can their forbidden love last?

Forbidden Love

After thousands of years of discipline in sorcery and enlightenment, the fox species have evolved to near human form while retaining most of their powers. The clan of the Fox with Nine Tails have existed beyond human eyes, striving to co-exist with the human race. A silent bond exists between humans and the foxes, but that bond is about to be broken as senseless murders occur. Shi Yeon (Kim Tae Hee) is a Nine-Tailed Fox living undercover in the human world. By day, Mirian is an employee at a natural history museum. By night, she's a top-ranking woman warrior in the Nine-Tailed Fox clan, charged with preserving the delicate balance between man and fox. When the serial murder breaks out, she crosses paths with a detective, Alex (Jo Hyun Jae), and their lives were never the same again.

Forbidden Love has won acclaim and popularity for fusing different genres with the popular Korean Television drama format which hopefully will also win the hearts of Filipino Koreanovela fans. It broke new ground, combining high-tech horror, romantic fantasy, sci-fi thrills, and high-wire action into an entertaining and astoundingly unique television event! Kim Tae Hee (Stairway to Heaven) won the Best New Actress Award at the 2004 KBS TV Drama Awards for her portrayal of Shi Yeon or Mirian, the creature who is much more compassionate, talented, and even more human than the human beings who persecute her.
