Leading up to the series’ finale (last two episodes) on July 14 and 15 on iQiyi and iQ.com, the latest episodes of “My Roommate is a Gumiho” took the viewers on a rollercoaster of emotions when Lee Dam (played by Lee Hye Ri) and Shin Woo-yeo (Jang Ki Yong) broke up and reconciled trying to overcome the fated hurdles along their way.
In last week’s episodes 13 & 14, we saw how Lee Dam tried to change her destiny and learned about the secret of how a gumiho can transform into a human, finally securing a promise from Mountain Spirit for her personal safety.
As Lee Dam returns to cohabitation with great expectations, they spent the first night with Dam sleeping comfortably in Shin’s arms but makes Shin sleepless. The next day, he refuses to sleep together again. This poses a crisis to Lee’s Human Transformation Plan. As their dating photos spread on campus and become a major gossip, Lee chooses to confront everyone, admits to the relationship, and breaks away from unsolicited affections. She explains to Shin how the red thread and destiny issue is resolved, she is surprised to see how Shin gets jealous, but finds him as “the most adorable 999-year-old creature ever”. As their relationship becomes clearer, Lee gives him two goodnight kisses and says implicitly that “there will be no dangers anymore”. Shin kisses back passionately and flirts that “you are really now in danger”.
Directed by Nam Sung-Woo, iQiyi International’s first original K-series My Roommate Is a Gumiho is adapted from the namesake webtoon by scriptwriters behind What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim. The series has been popular with many positive comments internationally. The production team first selects Jang Ki-yong to play Shin Woo-yeo, as he demonstrates fox qualities. The webtoon creator mentions that the work is created with Lee Hye-ri in mind. As two actors fit well into main characters, the cast receives overwhelmingly positive reviews. Before the series ends, director Nam Sung-Woo and the production team express gratitude and best wishes to viewers. He hopes the series can offer some happiness, and invites everyone to enjoy and support this heartwarming and relaxing story.
Ending next week, “My Roommate Is a Gumiho” is streaming on iQiyi, simulcast with South Korea every Wednesday and Thursday at 9:40pm.
