Based on a popular webtoon, “My Roommate Is a Gumiho” is a romantic comedy about a 22-year-old college student named Lee Dam (played by Hyeri), who accidentally swallows the marble of a 999-year-old male gumiho (a mythological nine-tailed fox) named Shin Woo Yeo (played by Jang Ki Yong), who was close to achieving his goal of becoming human.
In the previous episode, Shin Woo Yeo and Lee Dam’s romance showed signs of developing more as Shin Woo Yeo became jealous of Gye Sun Woo, who expressed interest in Lee Dam. Lee Dam also felt her heart-fluttering constantly at Shin Woo Yeo’s presence.
