iQiyi’s ‘My Roommate Is a Gumiho’ finale to simulcast with South Korea and 191 countries worldwide


iQiyi’s first original K drama series “My Roommate Is a Gumiho” drops its final episode tonight at 9:40pm over 191 countries and regions worldwide. The show has been in the top 3 viewed shows in many regions including North America (No. 2), Middle East (No. 1), Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Taiwan that also generated great reviews beyond Asia.

As the series hits to a close, viewers are mesmerized when Shin Woo-yeo (played by Jang Ki-yong) confesses his love to Lee Dam (played by Lee Hye-ri). As Shin gradually loses his supernatural power, he is worried that he will disappear. The heartbreaking farewell letter that he writes to Lee will certainly be emotional among viewers.

Previously in episode 15, Lee finally calls Shin by a pet name, rather than “old man”. Lee wears his shirt, and recalls their intimacy. Shin can easily read her mind, and proposes to drop respectful terms in their conversations. He also gives her a necklace as a promise, and confesses that, “I thought it was fine to fall into oblivion in the world, but now I want to live because of you. I thought it would be uncomfortable to have someone around me, but it’s really happy to have you. It means I love you”. At the end of the episode, however, Shin gradually becomes translucent. Upon returning home, Lee bursts into tears as she cannot find Shin.

The episode also invites Baeksang Arts Awards Best Supporting Actor Oh Jung-se (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay) for a guest appearance. His role witnesses an intimacy scene between Do Jae-jin (played by Kim Do-wan) and Yang Hye-sun (played by Kang Han-na), and yells, “Why are you guys making out at the front door? Let me get off work first, okay? Do you guys hear me?” However, the couple only has each other in their eyes, and totally ignore his call, so he slams the door out of frustration. Even though he only appears for 50 seconds, it’s a funny and pleasant surprise to viewers.

Catch the last episode of My Roommate Is a Gumiho tonight (July 15) at 9:40pm. Available at iQiyi International streaming app and iQ.com in over 191 countries and regions worldwide.
