Yeon has been waiting for a long time for Ji-ah, as she is the reincarnation of his true love 600 years ago – Ah-eum. The both of them eventually fell in love.
Ji-ah once saw with the use of a magical glasses – that it was Yeon who killed her from her previous life. It was later on revealed that Yeon had no other choice but to kill her since Ah-eum insisted (foxes are bound to repay kindness). Ah-eum insisted to be killed because the serpent was in her body.
Even though she was reborn, the serpent still lives in Ji-ah’s body. There is also another serpent named Terry – and he wants to be with Ji-ah.
