K-Dramas have popularised the idea of gumihos or nine-tailed foxes and given it almost a different dimension of meaning, which is now prevalent in pop culture. At the mention of a gumiho, K-Drama fans will first think of someone how is extraordinarily good-looking, protective, loyal, someone who loves animals and someone who is clever before thinking of the fact that they're also a supernatural being.

Either way, thanks to these K-Dramas, gumihos are no longer seen as scary but rather, as alluring and mysterious. With that said, here are 10 K-Pop idols who might as well be modern-day gumihos.

 

1. NCT's Yuta

Yuta's Instagram

Yuta has a fierce energy about him and he's always straightforward about his opinions. On stage, he's unstoppable and off of it, he doesn't play by anyone's rules either. Besides, with how good he looks with his red hair, we don't doubt for a second that he might be a good old K-Drama gumiho.

There's no way JunJi looks like the way he does without being some sort of a mythical being. His hair might as well be the source of his powers.

NingNing has the poise of a thousand-year-old gumiho but she's also just as playful as a little child who is seeing the world for the first time. The fact that she looks royal is also a good indication that she might as well be a secret gumiho. In essence, she reminds us of Kang HanNa's character Yang HyeSun in "My Roommate Is A Gumiho".

 

4. BTS' V

It is a commonly known fact at this point that BTS' V is perhaps the most gorgeous and handsome man in the world. His beauty is simply out of his world but more importantly, his demeanor and the way he carried himself, is just as grand and mysterious as the gumihos we love so much.

 

5. Red Velvet's Irene

Yoo TaeYang has the eyes that can entrance anybody with a single gaze. His charm is no joke either. We wouldn't be surprised if it was one day revealed that he has been a gumiho all along.

YeJi looks like a fairy and acts like one too. However, she's also extremely fierce and a Queen at what she does. YeJi's talents are endless, which convince us even more that she must have been cultivating them for years, a couple of hundred years too perhaps.

 

8. GOT7's JinYoung

JinYoung is loyal and sincere but also unbelievably mischievous, especially with his loved ones. Gumihos are known to be the same way! Besides, there is something so ethereal about him that we can't help but make the connection.

 

9. VIXX's N

N's Instagram

N is an exceptionally protective individual. He also has a unique sense of humour. However, he best expresses himself through art, especially dance. In fact, he is elegance personified when he's puring himself out through his dance. Such talent simply cannot be human.

 

10. GWSN's MiYa

The Wave Music

MiYa's visuals are incomparable! Not only is she the lead rapper but also a vocalist and the main dancer! She is also known to be deeply loyal and sincere and her fellow members and fans would definitely attest to that. If she were a gumiho, no one would be safe from her charm.
