Grudge: The Revolt of Gumiho is a South Korean drama that tells the story of a mother and daughter's struggle to stay alive while preventing outsiders from discovering their supernatural curse. Korean actress Han Eum Jung plays Goo San Daek, a woman who is a Gumiho – Korean mythological shape-shifting creatures that are half-human and half-fox. Kim Yoo Jung plays the Gumiho's daughter Yeon Yi, a nine-year-old who is eventually revealed to be half-fox and half-human like her mother.

The television series is a costume production set in Korean feudal times. The traditional Gumiho legends portray the shape-shifters as deceivers who seduce men, then feast on their organs to survive. But Grudge turns the legend on its head by depicting mother and daughter as sympathetic characters.

The two are forced to go on the run when the Gumiho's husband betrays her: He backs out of his promise that he will never reveal her secret. A Gumiho can become "fully human" if a lover keeps the secret for ten years.

The betrayal causes her to lose her power to shape-shift. Now, fearful for both her and her daughter's safety, the Gumiho takes her daughter and flees to a nearby village.

As daughter Yeon Yi approaches her tenth birthday she too begins to gain the power to shape-shift. The series find the two fearing for their lives as Goo San Daek tries to prevent the discovery of her child's shape-shifting powers.

The initial plot lines cover the Gumiho and her daughter taking refuge in the house of a wealthy family. Critics applauded the work of young actress Kim Yoo Jung. The series has a sizable cult following in the US.
