Forbidden Love (구미호외전)

구미호외전 (Goo-mi-ho-oi-jeon)

Directed by Kim Hyeong-il (김형일)

Screenplay by ,

Action Drama Science-Fiction

KBS | Airing dates :

This drama series was produced with a hope of bringing the young generation back to television as it successfully combines the elements of action horror with those of a tragic melodrama. "Forbidden Love" depicts a fight between two different species: humans who at times act inhumanely, and non-human creatures who can be more compassionate than human beings.

This drama is based on a legend about a fox with nine tails that loves humans but is eventually betrayed by them. While presenting the modern version of a tragic love between a human and a fox with nine tails - two species that can never coexist, this drama also tackles such contentious issues as the moral aspect of genetic manipulation, social and economical costs associated with a longer lifespan, and human cloning.

"Forbidden Love" suggests a new "fusion culture" idol - a non-human creature with a human-like appearance who is more talented, beautiful and compassionate than human beings. This drama aims to win popularity not only from the young audience but from middle-aged viewers as well by creating a new character through a dramatic depiction of the predestined connection between the two enemies -- foxes with nine tails and human beings -- and the formation of a new conflict structure.

"Fusion drama" has emerged as a new code that can appeal to various age groups of viewers through diverse genres and stories. A Fox With Nine Tails gave birth to a new legend by overturning the existing perception of foxes with nine tails, and created a sensation by introducing a novel storyline and showing off top-notch filming techniques. What's more, its characters have become the new icons of the "wanna-be" culture.

"Forbidden Love" is the first Korean TV drama that depicts the passionate love between a human being and an alien species through cutting-edge technologies that make the tragic love between the characters ever more dramatic and heartrending.

Forbidden Love - contains spoilers by akasha0707

orbidden Love (also known as Nine-tail Fox) is a story of love between human and fox (a race of fox that takes the shape of human beings, ergo, feeds on humans). The man is destined to save the human race from the foxes by killing the millenium fox (sort of a goddess fox). Because of cruelty of fate, he falls in love with the very being he hates... the millenium fox herself. The dilemma lies in his decision, will he save the woman he loves (who loves him back), or save mankind from beings that can potentially wipe out the human race forever? Behind the mask of love that can never be are elements of revenge, unrequited love, conspiracy, politics, deception and manipulation. It's not your everyday tragic love story. It's a suspense-thriller, complete with extravagant martial arts moves and unexpected twists.
