A fox demon cultivates behind closed doors through the help of the spirit pearl. With only a few days left until he completes his training, an unexpected encounter ruins everything. The fox is mistaken for a Samoyed and sent to the vet while the spirit pearl falls into the hands of the young woman who recklessly barged in.
After tripping over and falling on top of the fox demon, Xia Kui comes into the possession of the spirit pearl and plans to sell it on her Taobao shop as a fake antique item. Wanting to get his precious pearl back, fox demon Bai Xiao chases Xiao Kui all the way to her house only to discover that the spirit pearl has acknowledged her as its new owner. Intending to kill her to retrieve what's his, Bai Xiao is momentarily distracted by the smell of the red braised pork belly that Xia Kui has cooked.
Opening his eyes to the new world around him, Bai Xiao discovers many interesting inventions.
As it turns out, Bai Xiao is a fox demon from the Tang Dynasty who woke up one day to realize that the times have changed. Xia Kui convinces Bai Xiao to let her live for a few more days so that she can finally confess her feelings to her crush. Their arrangement forces Xia Kui and Bai Xiao to live together. Unbeknownst to them, the spirit pearl's reappearance has attracted the attention of dangerous creatures looking to steal the pearl for their own gain.

Cast & Credits
This had everything i love in a drama, especially the last 4 episodes, just EPIC :suspense,action,jealousy,friendship,care,family,love,betrayal,magic,demons,darkness!! Laid out, simple and an understandable story, nothing too complicated, which makes this even more enjoyable. The fact that they could assemble a PERFECT drama by adding different elements in between was AMAZING (as some drams try doing that but awfully fail). Kicks off with a Strong and hooking start,with an Interesting and gripping middle with the PERFECT ending (happy ending) .Every second of this drama was worth watching and boy did i ever skip in between. The ML falling for her episode by episode, gaining feelings but however not understanding it for he was a demon and intensely jealous moments had me die laughing for XD. The ML getting to understand the feeling he had for the FL was just somehow heart-breaking but lovely. (great chemistry, but hopefully in can improve in the next season :) ) The second leads' scenes didn't even bore a bit out of you as usually in others drama they do :) The LAST 4 episodes of this drama were just INSANELY EPIC, definite 10/10. *spoiler alert* the park where FL died in ep 23 and at the start of ep 24 ML's flashback of their sweet memories just had me bawling my eyes out :( . The green screen work in ep 24 just had me SHOOK. ML's initial wish was so be immortal but after having met the FL he gained emotions (for what demons did not have), feelings and decided to bring FL back to life, which put the most stupid smile on my face :) WELL DONE TO THE ACTORS, DIRECTOR AND EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS DREAM AN ACCOMPLISHMENT!!!! ABSOLUTELY HYPED FOR SEASON 2 (which is said to revolve around ML AND FL's sweet love story)
What I loved:
- THE FLIPPIN' STORY ITSELF:such a unique drama i swear it had every element you would want in a drama in it!!!!!! From the thrilling action, suspense, jealousy of the characters, twists and the demons itself made the story more lovable.
-The ML falling for the FL :'( just really and absolutely cute, even though we got a minimum amount of moments (only 1 kiss scene :( ) hopefully as said in the ENDING of SEASON 1 EP 24, the next season which revolves around the love story between ML and FL, hopefully we get tons more moments.
-How the FL cared for the ML and vise versa.
-THE SUSPENSE I HAD AT THE END OF EACH EP THOUGH
-The fact that they could mix different elements in between was EXTRA ORDINARY!!
-The green screening was actually an acceptation and not lame.
-The numbers of episodes were simply perfect and easy to keep up with.
What i didn't enjoy:
-the ML and FL did lack a tiny bit of missing chemistry and they didn't seem to have enough moments at all!!!! But hopelly WE CAN WITNESS MORE MOMENTS IN SEASON 2 and MORE CHEMISTRY!!!!!!
-Lack of MOMENTS!!
However still WORTH WATCHING no matter.
JUST CAN NOT EXPRESS HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS SERIES. HOPEFULLY YOU CAN DEFINITELY WATCH IT TOO CAN'T WAIT FOR SEASON 2 :)
What this drama is: the adorable ends-up-living-together setting mixed with the fantastical and crazy world of demons who live among humans. The fantasy element is fascinating and the "demons" who are thousands of years old and very quirky are equally hilarious and just super super interesting. The main couple is freaking adorable, you could call it a love to hate relationship at it's extreme XD LOL mixed with a forbidden love (humans and demons can't be together) Also the friendships and their squad is goals.
- The spunky main girl who sells fake antiques cause she's hella in debt because of her dead-beat dad LOL
- The almighty powerful fox demon who decides he likes her cooking enough to invade her house forever
- the bitchy 2nd female who's actually hilarious, not actually a bitch and always lies about her age (shes like 2000, but always lowers it to like 1300 XD)
- an adorable demon catcher who cant catch demons for shit (but wont admit it) and instead runs around sticking useless talismans on their foreheads and crashing on their couch and eating their food...
huh, everyone in this drama is such a freeloader XD
The dialogue in this show is actually so pretty and philosophical, and the characters are really interesting with a lot of complex sides. ive never watched a cdrama before where i like all the characters, despite which side of good or bad (or in the grey area) they're on. Super impressed with the final fight scene too, and a lot of the directing and editing and cinematogrpahy is really. really good. damn, i almost wish they had had a higher budget to get some real A class SFX, but they've really done well with their resources, nothings "cringey" or whatever, its pretty high quality. I love this show. cant wait for S2. loved the dad too XD so freaking hilarious.
If you loved shows like Korean Odyssey, you'd totally like this.
