The Lady Rogue Review: What Kind Of Secrets Can We Find, Dashing Through Romania?

Gumiho: Wicked Fox by Kat Cho Review: Tantalizing, Thrilling Tale of a Modern Day Gumiho

If I could sum up Wicked Fox, it would be into two (both equally fantabulous) parts: Part 1: Soft, Fluffy School Kdrama The first part of the story starts with the introduction of Miyoung, a cold and calculated gumiho (nine tailed fox) who recently moved to Seoul with her equally beautiful, equally smart mother. But readers […]
