Girl’s Day’s Hyeri Is Not Amused By Jang Ki Yong In “My Roommate Is Gumiho” Teaser
Based on a popular webtoon, “My Roommate Is Gumiho” is a romantic comedy about a 22-year-old college student named Lee Dam (played by Girl’s Day’s Hyeri), who accidentally swallows the marble of a 999-year-old male gumiho (a mythological nine-tailed fox) named Shin Woo Yeo (played by Jang Ki Yong), who was close to achieving his goal of becoming human. If a human swallows a gumiho’s marble, they can only live for one year, after which the marble will break—preventing the gumiho from ever becoming human.
The teaser begins with Lee Dam lying in Shin Woo Yeo’s arms as they gaze deeply into each other’s eyes. Shin Woo Yeo shares, “I don’t plan on letting you die,” and a single tear drop falls from Lee Dam’s eye.
Completely serious, Lee Dam shares, “Eoreushin [Korean term used to refer to an elderly person], I want to eat chicken.” With a sudden burst of energy, Lee Dam roughly pushes Shin Woo Yeo away to run towards a plate of fried chicken. However, with a snap of his fingers, Shin Woo Yeo sends the chicken flying into the air and out of Lee Dam’s reach. Angry, Lee Dam puts her hands on her hips with a large pout. The teaser ends with Shin Woo Yeo’s sly and meaningful smile.
Check out the mythical world PIXY is creating through their Concept Teasers
Starting May at midnight, May 8th, PIXY has been uploading concept teaser videos to their Youtube channel for their upcoming mini-album, Bravery. So far, all three have expanded on the world-building for the universe PIXY set up with their debut.
The first concept teaser shows illustrated versions of all six girls. The style is storybook-like, playing into the fantasy aesthetic of PIXY. The girls are shown in a dark forest waking from sleep disturbed by curious concern from a mysterious butterfly.
Red, glowing eyes are a looming presence in the teaser. A reference to the same red, glowing eyes from PIXY's WINGS mv. In the background, a snippet of the WINGS REMIX, which is an exclusive bonus to the physical version of Bravery, is played in the background.
In the second concept teaser, we see the illustrated versions of the girls switch to live-action footage of them. The narration tells us that these six girls are wingless fairies who formed a friendship to protect themselves. One of the fairies found a torn pair of wings. The narration ends here where we then see shots of the girls with butterflies on their bodies.
These butterflies and the found pair of wings reference the mysterious butterfly from the first teaser, thus further connecting them together.
Considering that their debut song, WINGS, is about them finding their "wings," perhaps the torn pair of wings and butterflies helped the wingless fairies get wings somehow?
The track being played in the background here is INTRO.
Finally, in the third concept teaser, we see the girls sleeping in the forest. Similar to the first teaser, but in a brighter setting. Here, we see Dia sing a bit of the song, INSOMNIA. Shots switch from her to an awoken Da Jeong, who hurriedly buries a box in a plant bed. Appearing very cautious. She is clearly worried about being seen, but by who?
