My Roommate is a Gumiho Episode 4 Recap

By the fourth episode of ‘My Roommate is a Gumiho,’ we learn that Shin Woo-yeo has roamed the earth for 999 years. It has taught him how to charm people while also being wary of them. Woo-yeo longs to become a human and is close to getting his wish fulfilled. One night, he accidentally meets the cheerful college student, Lee Dam, who, after a comedy of errors, ends up swallowing Woo-yeo’s bead.

Woo-yeo reveals his true form to Dam and explains that the bead contains human energy he has been collecting for turning into a human. If the bead remains inside Dam for over a year, she will die, and he will fail in his quest. Therefore, the two must live together so that he can protect the bead and find a way to extract it from Dam when the time is right. Meanwhile, Dam, who has never dated in her life, finds herself living with an attractive man.

We also learn that Woo-yeo’s rival, Yang Hye-sun is actually a friend of his who is also a former Gumiho turned human. Hye-sun is skeptical of Woo-yeo’s cohabitation plan for reasons unknown. Elsewhere, at the college, Dam learns about the various side effects the bead has on her. The biggest among them is that she must avoid men born in the Year of the Tiger at all costs as it causes severe physical distress to her. Gye Sun-woo, a ladies’ man born in the Year of the Tiger, becomes interested in Dam after she constantly avoids him.
