Forbidden Love (Hangul: 구미호외전; RR: Gumiho woejeon; lit. Tale of the Nine-Tailed Fox) is a 2004 South Korean television series starring Kim Tae-hee, Jo Hyun-jae and Jun Jin. It aired on KBS2 from July 19 to September 7, 2004 on Mondays and Tuesdays at 21:50 for 16 episodes.

The story is about a rare fox race whose appearance is that of humans. They survive by eating dead human livers. The drama revolves around conflicts between being a fox warrior and loving a human being.


Yoon Shi-yeon (Kim Tae-hee) is a "gumiho" (or nine-tailed fox) living undercover in the human world. She has a dark past when her whole family was massacred, leaving her an orphan. By day, Shi-yeon is an employee at a natural history museum. By night, she's a top-ranking woman warrior in the Nine-Tailed Fox clan, charged with preserving the delicate balance between man and fox. But her world is sent spinning when an atrocious serial murder, where the victims have had their internal organs gouged out is uncovered. Detective Kang Min-woo (Jo Hyun-jae) believes the murders may relate to the organ trafficking trade, and goes undercover in a seedy organ smuggling ring. But Min-woo's cover is blown, and it's only through the intervention of Shi-yeon and Nine-Tailed Fox warrior Moo-young (Jun Jin) that he's able to survive. But now he's seen their true identities as Nine-Tailed Foxes.
