“KangChi, The Beginning” is a fusion martial arts action fantasy drama about a half man-half monster who is searching for a centuries-old book that according to gumiho legend, contains the secret to becoming human.

Yoon Seo Hwa (Lee Yeon Hee ) and the guardian god of Jiri mountains, Gu Wal Ryung (Choi Jin Hyuk) fell in love but due to the trap of their enemies, the Yoon family status fell into ruins. While Seo Hwa was on the run with her maid, she received news that Wal Ryung had disappeared after a mishap. Feeling unable to raise her son while escaping, she sent him down the river in a basket hoping that someone could take him in.
