Trivia

Inspired by the Korean horror legend "Gumiho," about a fox's attempt to steal the soul of a young man. "Yeu Woo Bi" transfers this story to a contemporary setting, makes the fox the protagonist rather than the antagonist and sympathizes with her. See more »

Outstanding !
13 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very beautiful fantasy animation with outstanding quality from South Korea. Style is original enough not to be derivative of anime from other Asian countries.

Character designs are first class, and visuals have original angles to them as well. Korean animation has long history, and it is not well known but many Japanese anime are actually made in Korea (just like many American TV cartoons are made in Japan). Techniques are mature, and there isn't a hint of rough edges with this very fine movie.

I wish that Korean anime will gain more mainstream distribution as their action, love, romance, comedy have in the past 10 years.

This is one of the finest animation movie to come out of Korea, and is highly recommended for viewing.
