SINGAPORE - Wearing hanboks and cracking jokes on set are just some of the memorable moments for South Korean actor Jang Ki-yong and K-pop girl group Girl's Day member Lee Hye-ri, who play love interests in the fantasy K-drama My Roommate Is A Gumiho.

The series, based on a Web comic named Living Together, tells the story of Shin Woo-yeo (Jang), a 999-year-old gumiho, or nine-tailed fox spirit, in dashing human form. He has to cohabit with an ordinary college girl, Lee Dam (Lee), after she accidentally swallows a fox marble he needs to turn into a real human being.
