History is littered with the tales of the nine-tailed fox, a legendary creature who seduces the innocent in order to satisfy their craving for human flesh. Though there are few in this modern age who believe in the ghost stories of the past, there are some, like Nam Ji Ah (Jo Bo Ah), who are convinced the legends of old are full of more facts than fiction. Determined to prove to the world that the monsters that lurk in urban myths and ancient legends are, in fact, real, Ji Ah has plied her talent as a television producer to create a show that does just that. With an iron will and nerves of steel, Ji Ah hunts down the weird, unusual, and sometimes dangerous subject matter to showcase on her program.

During one such pursuit, Ji Ah comes across Lee Yeon (Lee Dong Wook), an irresistibly handsome and incredibly intelligent man who is so well put together that he seems too good to be true. Convinced there’s more to this man than meets the eye, Ji Ah keeps a close watch on him, but the more she observes him, the more convinced she becomes that he’s just like every other man in the world, cold and heartless. If only she knew the truth!

A nine-tailed fox who has only recently settled in the city, Lee Yeon has wrecked more than a little havoc since his arrival, as he has a penchant for cleansing human spirits. Fully aware that Ji Ah is tracking him, he does little to arouse her suspicion; but when his blood-thirsty step-brother, Lee Rang (Kim Bum) shows up, things get a bit more complicated. Will Lee Yeon be able to save both himself and Ji Ah from the wrath of his vengeful brother?

A thrilling tale of legends and love, “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” is an action-packed 2020 romantic fantasy drama directed by Kang Shin Hyo.
