Synopsis

Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox revolves around a kumiho, a nine-tailed fox that can assume different forms including human. Kumiho are familiar figures in Korean folk tales, and they are usually depicted as magical creatures that take female form to lure and prey on humans. This time, however, our protagonist is a young, kind-hearted fox with only five tails, instead of nine.

After losing her family to fox hunters, five-tailed Yobi lives in the forest with some shipwrecked aliens, far away from the humans. When one of her alien friends gets captured by a villager, Yobi has no choice but to adventure into the human world to rescue him. At the village, Yobi meets many humans, including Geum Yee who studies at a school for maladjusted children. Interested in Geum Yee, Yobi joins the students and revels in the fun of human life, but both a fox hunter and a mysterious shadow man are on her trail.

I have to admit that I have a soft spot for anime based on folktales, legends and mythology, with the only proviso being that such references or inspirations are used in an intelligent or innovative manner. While there are many successful anime that have used these platforms as a basis for their plots (Tears to Tiara, My Neighbour Totoro, Miyori no Mori, Mokke, Wagaya no Oinari-sama, etc), there are also some truly awful efforts that are nothing more than pandering to the audience (Kanokon being a prime example).

One of the more worthy efforts of recent years is, surprisingly, not Japanese at all. Yobi, The read more

This is a must see movie for anyone, great for kids or adults, I Highly Recommend that you watch this Animated film! Being that I like this film so much I would have to say that this has surpassed such films like Princess Mononoke in its story telling and visual appearance. Its sad though that practically no one knows about this great film. If you are at all into animated movies this is a must see movie!

This Korean film focuses on our titular heroine, Yobi, trying to retrieve one of the aliens she came to befriend from a group of humans and she takes on the form of a human child to try tracking down the alien. Through this task, Yobi comes to bond with the humans she encounters at the school she attends, particularly a boy named Hwang Geum-ee, and becomes conflicted over whether or not she should stay with them as the film progresses.

To say that the quality of Yobi, the Five-Tailed Fox is mixed would be a bit of an understatement. On the one hand, Yobi is fleshed read more

Story:

So, the premise of Cheonnyeon-yeowoo Yeowoobi (Yobi, The Five Tailed Fox) is Yobi, a shape-shifting ninetail, lives with her alien friends near a school of kids, whom do not fit into society or adjust well in school because of difficulties (ex:some of the children are autistic, violent, obese, etc). Wacky hijinks ensue when the naughtiest alien gets taken by a little girl from the school. Although Yobi is supposed to rescue him, she finds herself getting distracted with the kids and enjoying her life as a human.

The story drags often and I skipped ahead in the beginning, but toward the middle, it recaptured my interest read more
