Gumiho - Nine tailed fox


How different and precious is this new image from TheEast Wind called Gumiho - Nine tailed fox and this is what Wikipedia has to say about her - kumiho (gumiho) (Korean pronunciation: [kumiho]Hangul:  구미호Hanja九尾狐, literally "nine-tailed fox") is a creature that appears in the oral tales and legends of Korea.[1] Deriving from ancient Chinese myths and folklores, a fox that lives a thousand years turns into a kumiho, like its Japanese and Chinese counterparts.[2] It can freely transform, among other things, into a beautiful woman often set out to seduce boys, and eat their liver or heart (depending on the legend). There are numerous tales in which the kumiho appears, several of which can be found in the encyclopedic Compendium of Korean Oral Literature , very interesting and I do love to learn something new every day!
