tvN’s new Wednesday-Thursday series My Roommate Is a Gumiho unveiled character posters of Jang Ki Yong, Hyeri, Kang Hanna, Kim Do Wan, and Bae In Hyuk.
Based on a webtoon, the series revolves around Lee Dam (Hyeri), a 22-year-old college student, and a mysterious nine-tailed fox Shin Woo Yeo(Jang Ki Yong). In it, she begins to live with a 999-year-old fox, Shin Woo Yeo, after inadvertently swallowing his mysterious marble.
Kkondae Intern director Nam Sung Wo, What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim writers Baek Sun Woo, and Choi Bo Rim have come together for the project.
Today, the character posters came out for the five main characters. What catches the attention are the numbers and hashtags stamped on the posters.
Firstly, Shin Woo Yeo has “999 years old,” “#sweet nine-tailed fox” and “#strict and serious” written on his poster. Secondly, Lee Dam is the “Generation Z,” born in 1999. And she is a person who speaks her mind and calls a spade a spade.
Thirdly, Yang Hye Sun’s (Kang Hanna) poster includes a witty comment “turned around 360 degrees” instead of the commonly used term “turned around 180 degrees.” This number signals Yang’s unexpected, quirky charms.
Moreover, Do Jae Jin (Kim Do Wan) catches the eye with the keyword “12th.” When he falls in love, he gives it all. After his 12th breakup, Do meets Yang Hye Sun as his 13th girl. What fate awaits the lovers? Lastly, the number “23.1 million” represents the number of Kye Sun Woo’s (Bae In Hyuk) social media followers.
Meanwhile, My Roommate Is a Gumiho will premiere on May 26th at 10:30 PM KST.
