    Gu Family Book (2013) Plot

    Choi Kang-Chi ( Lee Seung-Gi) is legendary gumiho that is half human and half animal. He struggles to live his life as a human and also falls in love. Dam Yeo Wool is a martial arts master and daughter of the leader of a secret organization protecting the region. She was sent to the Hundred Years Inn to observe and protect its lord. They met at the Hundred Years Inn, the most popular inn in the region, and fell in love with each other despite Choi Kang Chi being a half-human. When their world turned into chaos, it is up to Choi Kang Chi to put it back into order; and up to Dam Yeo Wool to ensure that Choi Kang Chi's half-mythical-creature side does not get the best of him. Seo-Hwa (Lee Yeon-Hee) is the daughter of a noble family, but her father is branded a traitor by Jo Gwan-Woong (Lee Sung-Jae) and beheaded in front of her. Afterwards, Seo-Hwa and her younger brother Jung-Yoon (Lee Da-Wit) are handed over to a gisaeng house. Seo-Hwa refuses to become a gisaeng or enter the house. She is then tied to a tree for 3 days before passing out from exhaustion.

Meanwhile, Koo Wol-Ryung (Choi Jin-Hyeok) is a spirit protector of Jiri Mountain and possesses eternal life. Koo Wol-Ryung is also full of curiosity and wanders around the human world. One day, he sees Seo-Hwa tied to a tree by the gisaeng home and becomes interested in her. Seo-Hwa is unable to watch her younger brother being beaten because of her. She finally succumbs and agrees to become a gisaeng. She then learns she will have to spend the night with the man that killed her father. With the help of her servant, Seo-Hwa escapes into the mountain with her younger brother, but they become separated. Seo-Hwa is saved by Koo Wol-Ryung, but her younger brother is caught by a slave hunter.

Seo-Hwa wakes up in front of Koo Wol-Ryung. They enjoy their days together and fall in love. Koo Wol-Ryung decides to become human to be with her. In order for Koo Wol-Ryung to become human, he must refrain from helping people, eating meat and hiding his real appearance for 100 days.

11 days left before Koo Wol-Ryung becomes human, Seo-Hwa is caught by soldiers and flees from them. Tragedy occurs, but Seo-Hwa eventually gives birth to a baby fathered by Koo Wol-Ryung. The baby is later discovered floating in a basket along a river. One of the noble men names the baby Choi Kang-Chil.
