Some Thoughts on Forbidden Love's Romance

For Forbidden Love, it talks about the story of the Nine-Tailed Fox clan who are actually monsters who can disguise as humans and there's Shi Yeon who despite being a nine-tailed fox, she despises the activities of eating human flesh and all that.  Shi Yeon works as an employee in a history museum by day while she is a monster at night in getting internal organs of humans which the clan feeds on.  Then she falls in love with Kang Min Hoo who has been assigned to track down the organ trafficking trade to feed these monsters.  What happens later is despite the fact that Kang Min Hoo discovers that his girlfriend Shi Yeon was actually a monster, he still loves her.  Of course, it was expected to have a bad ending due to the title beign "Forbidden Love".
