As to why Shin Min Ah was casted, the production representative for My Girlfriend is a Gumiho said “In Korean legends, Gumihos are known for their beauty. This was the first criteria we looked at during auditions. Departing from the horrifying Gumihos in the legends, the Gumiho portrayed in this drama is new to everything in this world, having been released after being trapped in a painting for 500 years. Although she has the magical powers of a demon, her nature is as innocent as a child. The actress must have such a quality. I saw a photo of Shin Min Ah online by chance and sent her an invitation. When I saw her walking towards me for our first meeting, I felt that the Gumiho we wanted was coming! It felt like she fits everything we required.“
